Definitely worth it. Our tour guide Yoko was great.Reviewed by: Elvis D, April 2014
Beautiful museum, very entertaining tour, including the use of public transportation.Reviewed by: Francisco G, USA, April 2014
This was a tour I was looking forward to. The guide was energetic and knowleageable. She got us from Shinjuku to Mitaka and to the museum in a organized way and back. The museum itself only takes about 40 minutes to walk through. There is a short film that's 10 minutes you can view later on as well. The only problem is the museum has alot of activity with kids and classes visiting so it makes it hard to hear the guide and what they're saying, especially in a large group. Large can be just 12 people. It makes it hard to hear if the guide doesn't yell or have a big voice. We had ample free time to explore the museum on our own and visit the gift shop after the initial walk through with the guide.Reviewed by: christopher l, April 2014
great way to get into the Ghibil museum if you're unable to get tickets yourselfReviewed by: Joyce L, March 2014
Really fun, a must if you're a fan of Ghibli or animation in general. A lot of interesting stuff to see, plus a neat little bookshop and souvenir store. We're planning on going back in a few years with our first child so he/she can play in the catbus :DReviewed by: Jonathan M, March 2014

It was a fun and personal afternoon tour to a very magical place. We had a group of 15 people, and most of them were Ghibli enthusiast. Naoko, our guide, she is very nice and informative. She gave us 1 hour free time after the tour, we mostly spent it on the museum shop and watching Ghibli's short film in the theater. Would be lovely to have another extra 30 minutes to sit down and have coffee/tea at the museum's cafe.
Overall, i totally recommend this, this museum is magical especially for those who grew up with Ghibli's lovely characters.
We did this tour last year and would do it again in a heartbeat. Guide was wonderful and as always, the museum is enchanting. We decided to leave the group so we could spend more time in the museum but the guide gave us very good directions on how to get back to Tokyo. Would definitely recommend for Ghibli fans and animation fans.Reviewed by: Jaclyn K, February 2014
