A great way to get to know Tokyo. Our host, Tats, was brilliant. We had only just arrived in Tokyo for our first trip and this was a great way to find out about a very new and amazing city. The food was delicious, as were the drinks!

This was by far our favorite experience in Tokyo! Our guide was outstanding - she was friendly, informative, engaging and made sure each person had a great time. I loved our stop at the Izakaya the most while my travel companion couldn't get enough of the Okonomiyaki we had to cap off the night. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo, especially those with only a few days to explore.

Highly recommended this tour, it was a great mix of history and awesome food. We had a great group of people on the tour and our guide Yuta made the night perfect. We ended up back in the same areas for food a few nights later, which was good but not the same without Yuta making sure we were well looked after, filling is in on history and overall making the night a huge success. Anytime one of my friends ask I will recommend or the next time we make it to Tokyo we will definitely be taking the tour again. Thanks Yuta!!!

I love beginning international trips with a guided tour. This was a delightful trip that introduced us to restaurants we would have never seen without the tour. Definitely worth the time and money.

We had a great time with our group and our guide Yuta-san. We were vegetarians and he took special care of us to make sure we had good tasty food at every place. This was a small group and we enjoyed talking to other travellers. Daifuku.. Yakitori.. Monjoyaki.. okonomayaki.. and all that. Yuta-san made sure this tour was worth it! Highly recommend to get a real local flavor into your holiday.

Had such an awesome tour! Our guide Yuta was so knowledgeable and really seemed to love what he was doing and enjoyed the people on the tour. He gave us more restaurant recommendations and took us to some places we never wouldve found on our own including a yokocho near Ginza. I highly recommend!
