We all enjoyed a full day visit to Tokyo. Thé Tour guide was very good Recommend to first time visitors to the city
So much was wrong with this tour. Could not recommend it to a friend -- or even an enemy. Leader f group ,AI, lost members of the tour group. English was almost non comprehesible. Failed to mention change of itenerary and had us even change buses without explaining why . Same tour company had another bus leader who was much better. This company needs to be more hands on as to it's employees!!
I had just arrived in Tokyo the day before my Viator tour and the tour was a great quick immersion to get me over any cultural shock of a foreign land. By the end of this tour I was ready to tackle other parts of Tokyo on my own. Thanks for a great tour.
Had a great overview of Tokyo with stops at several historic sites. Had a great traditional Japanese lunch included in our tour. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Could speak English very well.
The places visited are very nice snd famous. It is difficult to do all this on your own in just one day. Our guide Aki was very responsible and knowledgeable.
Our tour guide, Yoshi, did an excellent job, covering a lot of the key sites in a short period of time. He was very accommodating and ioen to questions.
Blair was an outstanding guide who managed to run a tight ship while being extremely friendly and helpful. Didn't batter us by talking too much. Tour took in the big hits. Lunch was very decent. Final boat trip was perhaps something and nothing. Blessed relief that we weren't taken to some shop/factory which I was not interested in while everybody tried to flog us something. There was no hard sell at all. So well done and thank-you.
My daughter and I did the Tokyo Bus Tour on July 18th. Levin is the name of our tour guide and he did an excellent job. We'll definitely do this again next time we come back to Japan with my husband.
Well organised tour that didn't try to cram too much in. Our tour guide, Levin, was great. He was very knowledgeable and incredibly patient.
Nice comfortable way to view the must see areas of Tokyo! Our guide Daniel was attentive and spoke English well. Overall we had a very good experience on this tour.
Our guide, Giulia, was very informed, knew the places set down for the tour, happy to answer questions along the way from getting there on the bus to making our way to the various sites once we had arrived. The suggested lunch spot was okay but feel that the food could have already been cooking well before we got there as a large number could not eat it within the time set for the lunch (felt it was undercooked, especially the meat).
We went on this tour with a guide named Gulia. She was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and had a degree in Japanese Studies. We met at the Love Object which was an easy walk from our hotel. We ate lunch at a Sumo Restaurant and experience a Sumo demonstration while there. The meal was excellent. We went to Skytree, the Imperial Palace Garden, Asakusa, Senso-ji Temple and a short cruise across the bay near the Rainbow Bridge. Highly recommend this tour for families and friends travelling together.
Excellent day with great tour guide SAGE who spoke great English . Sky tower was great going up as group preference but 1.5 hrs to come down was a nightmare. FERRIS wheel was excellent as was the cruise. Great value ! C T Ps meeting point was very hard to find. As in all of Japans tours...should be from a bus terminal with a number stop or a guide with a flag with company name.
Enjoyed this tour a good way to see the sights around Tokyo. Blair did a great job everything was so well organised. The Sumo hot pot lunch was very good. Enjoyed the short cruise at the end.
The tour was very good, and the tour guide, Guilia was excellent. Her knowledge, and the ability to explain everything clearly was outstanding. A really enjoyable day, thanks to Guilia
It was a long busy day but considering that the Japanese do not speak English, it is hard to obtain info and the transportation is crazy with about 40 train lines and not all by the same company, this is a must do. Our guide spoke perfect English and was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. I wish we were not just dropped at the train station without any real info on train lines or where to buy our tickets but otherwise it was gtreat. we were all over Tokyo.
The guide told us very little about areas, places we were passing on the bus. No information on the selected places we visited and never waited for everyone to get off the bus before walking away. Very disappointed. We could of just caught a bus by ourselves for the same experience. A waste of time and money
An excellent way to see Tokyo if you are limited for time. Great hot pot lunch and Blair was an excellent guide especially if like us you don't like being herded lile a flock of sheep.
It was well organised trip to provide glimpses of culture ,history and technology in a short 1 day trip.. I prefer this over Mt Fuji and Asi lake trip...
This was a great introduction to Tokyo and was a good way to begin our trip. Blair was a great guide: knowledgeable, clever, and engaging.
Great day! Sage was our tour guide and he was excellent. Very attentive and organized, great local knowledge and a genuinely nice person. We really enjoyed visiting the places on this tour and learnt interesting aspects of Japanese history and culture. Definitely recommend taking this tour.
My family and I booked this tour on our first day in Tokyo in hopes of gettting a general idea of the various places in this great city. Indeed, it met our expectations. Our tour guide was friendly, helpful and funny. Yet he kept very strict to the time. We all learned a lot and seen a lot on this tour. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide Blair was excellent very attentive and helpful. He explained everything in details. It was very enjoyable.
