Great tour guide. Very informative. Excellent lunchReviewed by: Suzanne F, May 2012
The walking tour is great and the tour guide is very friendly. However, the cruise is a bit less interestingReviewed by: BETTY G, December 2010
There were only three of us on the tour with the guide, so it was fabulous. Her english was quite good, and she was well organised and had time to listen to and answer our questions as well as she could.Reviewed by: AMANDA S, Australia, July 2009
I liked the tour, and the walk was not as tiring as I expected. Lunch was excellent - a 4 course French meal. The guide showed us the old Japanese-style street restos at the basement level of the Floating Garden Observatory building. Might have been better if the lunch is set at a Japanese resto in the said building. Overall, our family enjoyed the walking tour!Reviewed by: Larry D, Philippines, June 2009
The opportunities for photos were limited.Reviewed by: J T M, USA, June 2007
The walking tour was not worth writing home about, however, the lunch at the Granvia Hotel was the best of our stay in Osaka. We were rained on at the Osaka Castle and the river tour, but I would not have missed it.Reviewed by: Vicki B, April 2007
Our tour guide, Eiko San was very cheerful and we visited Osaka Castle. Very impressive. We love the floating Garden too but pity we did not have time to buy souvenirs. The time was so limited and we have to rush to catch the boat for our 60 minutes cruise round Nakanoshima.
Overall, our tour was fun.Reviewed by: Boi Kui C, December 2012
Mich, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and fun. We would recommend him to our friends. The tour itself was quite average. The floating garden and Osaka Castle were good but the river cruise was boring and honestly a bit of a waste of time. It felt like the cruise could have been replaced with something better like a visit to the Museum of Housing and Living near the Osaka Castle which offers a combined ticket to both. The western lunch was not a problem at all for me but my husband thought it could have been better.Reviewed by: Pik Seang A, December 2010
EnterThe tour guide was very knowledgeable and his English was quite good. There were only four in the tour, so that was kind of nice because he was able to answer our individual questions without any problems. Having said that, I don’t think that the tour was worth what I paid. We really did not do all that much. The lunch at the Granvia Hotel was okay. Compare to other tours that I took with Viator, this one was too expensive for what we did. your review here.Reviewed by: Susan, October 2011
The first part of the tour was OK, but it could have been more efficient. The morning part with just views and lunch, although very good, was a bit too little for me. The afternoon part of the tour was very well organized.Reviewed by: Ari H, Finland, July 2009
