We booked the 8 hour Walking Tour as we thought it would be the best way to get to see the top attractions in Tokyo. What we got was a whole lot more. Any questions before the tour was answered promptly and in a friendly and professional manner. Our guide was polite, informative and very professional. We were able to taylor the tour with places that we were interested in, with impromptu stops along the way. We also learnt how to navigate the Metro. The tour was more like going for a walk with a new friend. We highly recommend these tours.

Hiroshi was FANTASTIC. We had a real good laugh. His English was great and he was so kind to us all day and really enjoyed himself staying out with us at night.

We had a great time on the Tokyo walking tour. Our guide Yuri was splendid. Because the ship came in later than we thought it would, we did not start until about 12.15, but managed to complete all we had wanted to do. We traveled from the ship and Yuri was there to meet us at the designated place. We were so pleased to have such a knowledgeable and delightful guide. We were very well cared for throughout as we walked and went on and off the subway. She was very well organised and knew which train to get and where to get off. We found Tokyo a fascinating city and saw the old and the new and gained a very positive impression of this great city. We only had one day in Tokyo and feel we have had a good experience and hope to come back sometime in the future to see it at a more leisurely pace.
