Thanks for choosing our Osaka night tour, and thanks for writing this very kind review too! We're so glad to hear you two enjoyed your evening out with us. We've got great relationships with the local restaurants and neighborhood folks we bump into along the way too. It's our pleasure to give visitors an "in" into real Osaka life.
Great Way to Experience Osaka
, Dec 2020
Our guide was absolutely hilarious, personable, and informative! The tour took us around to various local spots that we definitely wouldn't have braved or understood on our own. Each spot had very accommodating hosts, great food, and unique drinks. Between locations we learned about local life, history, and industries. Highly recommended if you're in Osaka!

Deep Osaka Night Foodie Tour
, Jan 2020
Levy was our guide for this evening tour. We visited bars and restaurants, passed into gambling dens, viewed love hotels, and walked through fascinating shopping arcades. Levy gave us a great look into Japanese culture and with so much information, with his culinary background and years of experience. We had a lot of different types of drinks and food on the tour, and were quite full at the end. Afterwards, Levy kindly gave us a ride back to Dotonbori where our hotel was. We would definitely do other tours with Levy again.

Dear vluytana, So happy to hear your enjoyed your night with Levy! Just to let others know, our night isn't really all that seamy.. the "gambling den" is just a walk through a pachinko parlor, and it's all perfectly legal. At any rate, we are again pleased that you enjoyed the food and the attractions as well!

What a brilliant few hours with Levy. Spending time wandering off the beaten track and tasting delicious local food was a wonderful way to get to know Osaka better. Levy is full of knowledge and information. An excellent tour and an essential inclusion to any visit to this great city.

This was a great fun and value for money tour. The meeting place around Temma station was easy to find. The area that we toured was alive with quirky bars and eating places . We tasted traditional delicacies and the blind tasting was a lot of fun.(ask after tasting).We tasted some crackin Whiskey and Sake . Our guide Kevin was a wealth of local knowledge and made sure that we blended into the scene.
Great night out

Had a top guy as a guide and he was very knowledgeable and supplied plenty of food and drinks had a great night out with good company
Interesting insight to eatig in Osaka
Debbie F
, Apr 2019
The first 2 resturants were really interesting and gave a good insight into eating in Japan - the first was great - very much a place for locals, the second much smaller and perhaps more geared to tourists but a great place with good ambiance, the third was not up to the standard of the first 2 and was perhaps a little disapointing -
Delicious Surprises
, Dec 2018
Kevin showed us a range of eating styles, incl. the Stand and Drink restaurant, which we wouldn’t have tried without his help. He judged our palate really well and ordered accordingly. We really liked the oyster and egg soup in the very cosy bar. It was a delicacy we had never tried before. He gave us an insight into Japanese culture through Western eyes, incl. Pachinko parlour and Love Hotel. We highly recommend booking a Food and Drink tour in Osaka.
Good fun tour

Good fun tour going to different out of the way places to eat and drink, and a bit of insight into Osaka’s history and night life, cheers for a good time Niko 😃😃
Not really a food tour
, Oct 2018
Worst "food tour" I've ever been on. Only reason it gets 2 stars instead of 1 is that there was actually food.First hour of the three-hour tour the guide had us awkwardly wander around to kill time before our reservation. Instead of spending this time getting snacks from a street vendor or teaching us about Osaka's culinary history, he showed us a pachinko hall and love hotel and pointed out prostitutes.Tour did not teach us about Japanese cuisine like you'd expect from a food tour. Guide didn't even tell us WHAT we were eating half the time, much less anything about the dish's history. Tour guide also tricked us into eating whale without telling us what it was until afterwards. He may not have a problem with eating whale but many MANY people have moral objections and I am livid that we couldn't make that choice on our own!

One of the best tours I have ever taken. My son and I were the only ones on the tour, due to another group cancelling. Our guide, the owner of the company, knew Osaka inside and out. As an American from the Bay Area, he was great at comparing and contrasting the Osaka people from their counterparts in Tokyo, as well as we Americans. The tour made several stops in markets and stores, as well as stops for food and drink. The owners of the restaurants knew our guide as well, obviously sharing a close relationship, for quite some time. All of the stops for food and drink were great, and we did not want for anything else to after the tour. I can't recommend this group enough, and plan to take another tour when I return at the end of the year.

Kevin Boynton knows his stuff....and he makes this evening food and drink tour one of the best tours I have booked by Viator. I booked about 5 food and drink tours. None compare to Kevin's knowledge of Osaka and of Japanese cuisine and liquors! I think it always helps when you enjoy the company of those on the tour, as well. This group was fun and we went to places you wouldn't find unless one knows Osaka...this is a must do ..and it should be on the front end of your stay in Osaka. A treat was a Suntory and Nikka tasting...what fun and so educating. Many thanks, Kevin!

The tour was really interesting with an English speaking guide who has lived in Osaka for many years. We got to try a variety of local delicacies in local restaurants that we wouldn't normally have tried which added to the experience. This was more than just a food and drink tour with our guide explaining about other parts of modern Japanese culture helping to build a bigger picture. Be prepared to stand while dining like the Japanese do.

Dylan took us to some great food spots in Osaka that I would never have came across or tried without his help and guidance! I also appreciated how he depicted Osaka and just Japan itself with it’s pros and cons, giving a true picture of the culture.
