Lots of attractions seen....
Michelle_M, June 2023
Lots of attractions seen. Great to have a guide through the train system. Sam was very knowledgeable about the history and monuments. Only wish there was a little more time to spend at Tsukiji and Akasuka to wander around.
Good overview
Bernice_Y, June 2023
Hina was an excellent guide and explained the history of various places such as the Meiji Shrine and Imperial Palace to us. Would advise tourists to check on the opening hours of various places of interest. For example, Tsukiji Market is closed on Sundays and Wednesdays. If you would like to include it as part of the tour, book it on the other days.
Tokyo partial English tour
Mary_A, June 2023
I booked this tour because of the amazing reviews. I think our tour could have been better with a different guide. Harada was a very nice man, but his English was terrible and was very difficult to understand. His time management was not great, hind sight being 20/20, we could have skipped the walk up Takeshita Dori talking about the architecture of the buildings, we also could have done Shibuya crossing on our own. It was after 5PM by the time we got to Sensoji Temple, so the temple and all the shops were closed. Harada said we couldn’t go inside which wasn’t true. We went back the next day to shop and go inside the temple. This tour extended to 8 hours, we were exhausted. Shorter tour with less stops would have been better. We didn’t feel any personal connection like I’ve experienced on other tours.
Great trips and Excellent Guide!!

Jessica_F, May 2023
My husband and I booked this tour during our stay in Tokyo. We had Yoshi as our tour guide and had an amazing time with him! He was very understanding and accommodating of our preferences, and was very knowledgeable of Japanese history and facts. Please come prepared with a Suica or Passmo card for an easy tour, and get ready to walk a lot! We had lots of fun on this tour!

I hit a home run with this tour.
Robert_H, May 2023
I could not have asked for anything better. From start to finish, everything was excellent. Mura was an excellent host and guide. I will go home with great memories and knowledge gained with and from Mura. At the end of the day I could say that it was just two guys sharing insight and becoming friends. Again, I could not be happier with the day and so glad I selected this tour.

Noriko went beyond our expectations. My husband forgot one of his medications from the States and Noriko arranged for him to see a doctor to get a new prescription as well as finding the medication in a pharmacy. We still had time to see most of the highlights on the tour

Even rain couldn't dampen our tour!
Barb_T, Apr 2023
Our first day in Japan was a wet one, but we were excited to see the sites and Joji didn't disappoint. We saw the Meiji Shrine, the grounds of the Imperial Palace, Senso-ji Shrine in Asakusa and beautiful Ueno Park. We also strolled through a number of arcades (covered streets) and enjoyed a donburi bowl for lunch and a little dessert and coffee later in the tour. Joji explained the history of the Edo period and the Meiji restoration as we visited the different areas. We were delighted to see that the sakura (cherry blossoms) were in full bloom and not falling off the trees due to the rain. Ueno park was absolutely stunning and a highlight of our tour. A perfect time of year to visit!
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you for sharing your fantastic experience with Joji! We're thrilled to hear that despite the rain, Joji's knowledge and enthusiasm made your first day in Japan unforgettable. The sights, including the stunning cherry blossoms, added to the charm of the tour. We appreciate your high recommendation!
Our Tokyo experience
JOSEFA_S, Apr 2023
My mom, my sister and I had a wonderful and memorable bonding time in Tokyo and our experience was heightened by Lily, our very hospitable tour guide who was very accommodating of my mother’s limitations in a wheelchair. Navigating the train and metro was made easy by the very helpful personnel. Despite the rainy weather, Lily was able to show us the sights, food and culture with patience and excitement. Thank you Lily and Viator for the experience!
Response from Host, May 2023
