Great Experience! Highly Recommend!
1. Bikes were very good and working order. Mine had disc brakes and was a comfortable ride. 2. Gaku was a such a great guy and an excellent tour guide. 3. Instructions were clear and great. You will have a wonderful time with Gaku. We got to see Mt. Fuji from the lookout. It was a very special moment that I won't forget.

Amazing tour with friendly guide

Private tour - All "Must-Sees"! Enjoy your First-Time Visit Tokyo!
The private tour was amazing. The tour guide did his best to explain everything about the Japanese culture and also made sure to go to all the places I liked to visit. The tour guide had good English skill and a fun and friendly personality. I would definitely recommend this to people who visit Tokyo for the first time and want to make sure that they see all the nice places with a good explanation.

This tour was by far the best thing I did on Tokyo. My guide, Mr. Katsunori, was communicative, knowledgeable and just fun to spend a day with! We saw all the “must sees” and he provided me with background information for all the sites. Our hotel was right by the Tokyo Tower (a spot on the planned itinerary) but he changed course according to my preferences. I highly recommend!

Tokyo Walking Tours with a Local Guide: Private & Tailored to You
One on one tour of some of the main tourist districts in Tokyo - Shinjuku, Shibuya and harajuku. Rui my guide was very friendly and easy to talk to. She spoke great English. She was willing to stop at any shops I wanted to. She helped understand the train system better. I would definitely recommend for when you first arrive in Tokyo.

My guide was Jordyn and she was an excellent guide for introducing me to Tokyo - I learned how to navigate the subway - saw several unique neighborhoods and had an amazing lunch in a place that no tourist could ever find on their own! She was friendly and informative and I can't say enough good things about her! Highly recommend

It was a wonderful tour where we got to see everything we wanted to and at the pace we wanted. Our guide got us through Tokyo easily and we would’ve been lost without her and it would taken 3x as long. She was knowledgeable, sweet, helpful, and a joy to spend the day with. We are so happy to have taken this tour for our first time to Tokyo

Kento was awesome! There were 6 of us and he helped us get our JR passes and Suica cards up and running and got us familiarized with the train system. We even had time to see a couple of sites and then had lunch at one of his favorite sushi restaurants. Money well spent and a great way to kick off our first day and get situated for the rest of our trip.

While we were in Japan during an unprecedented time which meant major attractions were closed due the virus and we had rained upon our tour. Our tour guides Eric and Sakurai were very considerate in attempting to give us our full experience in Japan and had to make some changes to our itinerary due to the weather and the crisis. We still had a great time and got to experience some of the temples without major people traffic. We got to see Japan in a way it has never been seen before and I look forward to returning to see it busy and full of life again..

Sonoko our tour guide is absolutely love. She is on time, gives clear directions and suggestions and very professional. She made sure our itinerary is met and always so helpful with our toddler she even has treats for her. She is knowledgeable and speaks English really well. I would highly recommend this private tour in Tokyo specially with Sonoko as your guide. Prepare to be exhausted though as it's very compact, a lot of walking and train ride but super worth it. Thanks again Sonoko and Viator for a fun day in Tokyo!
