It was a great tour for us since we had a very short visit to Tokyo. The tour takes you through all the major suburbs and the guide was superb with all the historic and current information. Enjoyed the tour!
Highly recommended for tourists with short time to spend in Tokyo.Reviewed by: Farida R, July 2013
Our guide spoke English well since she had studied in Canada. She gave a little humorous side to the shrines and temples ("when passing through the gate of a shrine, you are said to be cleansed, but some people have to go back and forth several times before they are clean enough to move forward...") which made it fun. It was our first day so we didn't mind sitting in the bus for 30 minutes to get to the starting point, we just people watched all the little kids going to school, people on foot, etc. We had a little free time at Asakusa Buddhist Temple which was fun. Bring snacks with you as you have little time to sit and have a coffee, etc. We saw 3 things that morning, including the Imperial Palace which was super cool because we heard the guards practicing their martial arts behind a fence and could see them jumping high and shouting, etc.Reviewed by: Jennifer H, July 2013
Excellent. We were lucky to be able to walk around the Imperial palace gardens and see the cherries in full bloom. A lovely way to get an idea of the city in a short time.Reviewed by: VILMA L, March 2013

My tour was very enjoyable and informative.Your bus was air conditioned and I know all passengers enjoyed that. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, quite funny, and kept all informed as to time restraints when we had to be back to the bus. I really enjoyed the way he conducted the tour.Reviewed by: Howard B, July 2012
Nice morning tour, if you have the time I would recommend the full day. But stretched for time or traveling with small children like us then this is great. Also, the area you end the tour I recommend eating and exploring the area.Reviewed by: Tara, April 2012
A great start to our trip.Reviewed by: Willard L, USA, April 2012
What a wonderful tour. Our guide Mai was superb. Meiji Shrine was beautiful, as were the gardens of the Imperial Palace. Loved the Senso-ji Temple and then being given some time to shop for souveneers. I've previously done the Dynamic Tokyo full day tour and this half day tour showed me different things. I was with 3 young children so the half day tour was an ideal length for children. Mai was just the best tour guide! She gave a wonderful insight into Japan. The tour was so well organised and efficient. Thanks for a great experience.Reviewed by: Graham, Australia, September 2011
I had decided to tag along on my hubby's biz trip and wasn't sure if I would be able to manuever around Tokyo alone without speaking Japanese so I signed up for this tour. Mina, our guide, was charming and very knowledgable. I enjoyed it so much I decided to do the afternoon tour with her as well. I enjoyed the shrine and temple so much, I brought my hubby back on his day off to see them again. Thank you Mina for a great day! Tokyo is amazing!!Reviewed by: Danny P, September 2011
