Chris was the best! A very educational and fun day! Highly recommended. She even taught us some interesting Japanese phrases.
Saw many beautiful places in Tokyo in just a short time. Levin was a very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor! His trainee Jana was also great.
Highly recommend this tour to anyone who has limited time in Tokyo as you get to see a broad range of sights. The lunch was really good and worth purchasing as part of the tour. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and able to answer the many questions she was asked.
As two couples that had not visited Tokyo before we booked into the "One Day Tokyo Bus Tour"
It was the best thing we could have done, we saw many parts of Tokyo, experienced the sights and sounds, blended in the locals, experienced the Japanese culture.
Our guide "LEVIN was a delight, speaking perfect English and have a great deal of knowledge of the areas he took us too. The trip was well organized and ran like clock work. I am in my seventies and found I was quite comfortable with the pace set, It is a long day starting at 8:45 am at the LOVE piece of art (see picture) and returning around 5:45pm that night. My only complaint is that the tour finished at the Shinjuku Station and it took us more than a hour and a lot of help from locals to get back to our starting point so we knew where we were. Other than that the day is great value. PS Make sure you include lunch with your tour it is well worth the experience.
Very well organised
Saw a lot of Tokyo in the short time we had
Very good traditional Japanese lunch at a nice restaurant
The tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor
Overall a great way to get an introduction to Tokyo. Now want to go back to see more
this was my favorite tour in japan, our guide LEVIN was amazing, so educated in the history and so informative about the present, there was not a question he could not answer. he was also very funny, he made the normality of a tour so extra special. the stops and the timing on this tour were perfect. the sights were the best and the bus was very comfortable, when im on a tour i like commentary so that i learn things by the time im done and this one was perfect, i highly recommend. i did not eat the food but my fellow travelers say it was good.
Aki was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to take photos of us as a family at the various sights. She was very well organised which meant the tour ran to time and smoothly. Our first stop at the Shinto shrine was quintessentially traditional Japanese with plenty of photo opportunities. Aki explained the ritual of hand washing and worshipping at the shrine. There was ample time at Japans most instagramable spot which is the Buddist temple in Tokyo. Very busy but a great experience and good spot to buy souvenirs. We had the chicken hot pot lunch which was at a sumo themed restaurant which added to the experience. The Tokyo sky tower was a fantastic experience and you save so much time going in as part of a group booking to miss the ticket queues. We finished with a short boat trip where you could see the rainbow bridge. The only thing you don't see is the famous Shibuya crossing. However, you can do that yourself (as we did) as simply get a tube to Shibuya station and it's right outside.
The Tokyo bus tour is a must to do. Tokyo is a very big place and this tour gives you a snapshot of what is available. Our tour Guide Seiji (Sage) absolutely made the tour. He entertained us and gave us timely information of what we were seeing and doing. Highly recommend couples and families do this tour.
Great value for money. It was jam packed, we saw so much in the one day. Very well organised. Be sure to keep to the schedule! The tour is fast paced, if you are more than a few minutes late to return to the meet point during free time, the tour will continue without you! Very informative and friendly guides also. Comfortable bus journey. The cruise was a lovely end to the day
Shiho was a GREAT GREAT tour guide. What a wonderful, educational experience we went on. It was even cold and so rainy and I still had an awesome time. It was a very long day, but we did it all! The lunch was a chanko lunch which was a nice cultural experience, but it wasn't the best. I'm glad to have tried it though.
As tours go, this is a fast paced one. You get to see 7-8 places in a day, which is great except several of those would be worth staying half day or more on. Perfect to see a lot in a short period of time, and get your bearings in Tokyo. The bus was clean, comfortable and effective transportation. Japan is awesome!.
Ahi was an amazing tour guide. Lots of history in the temple/shrine, as well as an amazing Tokyo bay cruise at sunset!
Our guide, Yoshi, was excellent! He was entertaining, affable, with clear understandable English! Great tour sampling the best of Tokyo!
Great way to see Tokyo and some of it's attractions. The tour guide was knowledgeable of both culture and history. I would recommend this tour.
Liza was excellent guide. She spoke very good English. She gave us lots of good info about Japan. Good luck Liza.
Levin is very engaging, knowledgeable and a fun guide. We enjoyed this tour tour very much. We covered a lot of great Tokyo locations.
A very good overview of Tokyo for a short visit. Tour guide was superb. I cannot see it necessary to write 71 characters when I have already described it well.
We enjoyed the one day bus tour of this beautiful city. Our guide, Gabriela, was very knowledgeable about the city, culture and people. She spoke several languages and was upbeat the entire long day.
Lunch was great and felt we had enough time at each site for pictures, etc.
Would recommend this tour.
We arrived the night before. We had a good experience seeing an overview of Tokyo. We had lunch included. The last thing was a boat ride at sunset. Can’t pack anymore into one day.
Seiji the tour guide was amazing. I enjoyed it so much and having a very nice tour guide is such a bonus. My family enjoyed it so much
The trip was well organized, stopping at some of the important sites in Tokyo. The Meiji Jingu Shinto Shrine, the Imperial Palace East Garden
( could have spent more time there), Asakusa Temple complex were the first stops. The Hotpot lunch was very nice which was followed by a visit to Tokyo Skytree. You should allocate some time to the mall in the lower 4 floors of the building.
The highlight was the sunset river cruise. Beautiful weather, lovely sunset, great views. Wonderful!
Miyuki, our guide, was excellent. She was funny and informative and did a great job.
Altogether, a very good experience.
The tour was very punctual and fulfilled my expectations. Our guide, Giulia, performed excellently. I strongly recommend it to those who don't have much time in town and want to see the best of it at once.
Levin our guide was amazing. He was able to make the tour fun and informative despite the torrential rain!
Sage, our guide was so nice, he spoke English perfectly. If u do this tour include the lunch option.
Well done to Sage (our tour guide)
He kept the tour going in trying CIrcumstances as it rained nearly all day
He was very entertaining and very knowledgeable
The tour was one of the best we've taken. It gave us a great overview of Tokyo. The tour guide was excellent
I had attempted to do this with the Hop on Hop off bus but found them to be lacking acceptable signage. They wasted 4 hours of my time. I got a refund and then tried the full tour with Viator. I am extremely satisfied. Thank you.
The tour was so organized. Our tour guide Aki did a great job. Hotpot lunch is so good. So glad I booked this tour....really worth it!
Everything about our tour was professional, enlightening, delicious, and fun! Sho, our tour guide, was so thorough, and knowledgeable, and so amusing. Great tour, everything was on time, and plenty of restroom opportunities. I have always been so happy with any tour, class, or excursion I have booked with Viator.
This is a great tour of major attractions in Tokyo, as well as driving through most of the major areas with descriptions. We really enjoyed our guide Giulia, who was very funny and engaged well with the group
