I signed up for this solo and was in a group with 4 others 2 groups of 2. Ayaka was our guide, and she was EXCELLENT. She took the time to explain all of the food and places we visited, and gave us background on all of the places we passed through. She took the time while traveling between restaurants to get to know each of us. It was a great way to go into places I never would have had the courage to visit on my own, and try foods that would have otherwise been kept secret from me! After the tour was over, our group wanted to continue wandering around together, and she gave great recommendations about where to go and gave us directions for how to get there. I especially recommend this for solo travelers because it's a good chance to meet up with other people for part of a day.

Thanks Kimmi!

This tour was far better than it's description! Our local guide, Keji, was superb. We enjoyed many different local delicacies in areas that only Toyko residents know about and learned about the local culture along the way. Don't worry about not having enough to eat, you're appetite will be satisfied!

What an awesome tour. We booked this very last minute and were so happy we did. Our guide had great English and was very knowledgeable. We were able to explore and learn about parts of Tokyo we would have never found on our own. We also got to try a variety of Japanese food and drink that had options for any type of diet. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who likes food and traveling to Tokyo.
