Warning: Do Not Book This Tour It Is a Scam
HEATHER_F
, Feb 2020
Warning to fellow travelers, do not book this tour. It is a scam. I arrived 20 minutes early to the designated location and the location instructions were incorrect. I called the contact number provided and the person I spoke to was unwilling to assist me even though I provided my exact location via a maps pin drop. After calling back several times over a 30 minute period trying to help we had no choice but to turn back. I reached out to Viator for a refund and they were unable to provide one. Again, this is a scam, do not book.

Comfortable bikes that are easy to control. Our guide was knowledgeable, enjoyable and engaging. A great way to get a quick glimpse of Tokyo. If I were to do it again, I would do a full day tour.

SEE TOKYO UP CLOSE (WE WERE A PART OF HISTORY)

WOW how to see Tokyo and feel involved! The transition of the Emporer to his son took place the day we did the tour. First it was a little unclear where to meet but with the help of some Tokyo citizens we managed to get to the right place to start our trip. There was a lovely Italian restaurant just nest to the spot so because we went early we were able to eat lunch right outside beside where we left for the trip. (La Mermma). Our tour guide was Hideki "MORI" and was he great! Knowledgable (like a seasoned professor), patient, FUN, calm, a lovely person! Gave a very warm feeling for Japanese residents. Took us even down a beautiful alley with a private small neighborhood temple! explained about various neighborhoods! so knowledgable! love that behind the scene stuff! what a beautiful clean city!! so gorgeous and quaint I filmed a video of it! Saw more military and police than I have seen in my life!! so exciting! I felt so safe. Even riding in urban area with so much traffic was NOT threatened (and I am trauma surgeon)!! Such a small group we really got to know other riders! (six guests including us!!) Mori even took us to a shrine where they were playing drums and flutes for a festival! That was unexpected! Note: my husband and I are nearly 70 and we did not feel out of place or crazy for doing this (but we can ride bikes!) it was three hours (about 5 miles) but the best three hours we spent in Japan. If I come back I will certainly contact Mori for some more interactive touring in Tokyo. I feel like I have a Japanese friend!! what a day!!

Lots of Fun

We enjoyed this electric bike tour very much. It was well suited for adults and our 13 year old. Our guide took us to neighborhoods around Tokyo we never would have seen otherwise. He was also flexible with where we went and customized our tour a little to accommodate a request from the group. The bikes have electric power to support pedaling and you hardly have to work at all if you don’t want to. We enjoyed our afternoon very much! A great way to see Tokyo, and get some fresh air and exercise at the same time.

Yoshi, our tour guide, was excellent. He taught us a lot about the history of Japan and its emperors and shoguns, and he showed us a great overview of Tokyo. Because we had electric bikes, he was able to take us to places not accessible with buses or cars. We recommend the electric bike tour and would do it again to see other places.

My 17 year old son and I had a great time on the electric bike tour. Guide was upbeat and interesting. Tons of foot traffic because of cherry blossom season but after a couple of stretches where we had to walk our bikes things opened up and we got to see so many parts of the city we just would not have explored on foot. Great tour!

What a great way to take in the sights, sounds and smells of Tokyo up close ! There is plenty of very light pedaling you can set the resistance level involved even though it's an electric-assisted bike ... be sure to bring a bottle of water and your camera. The tour takes you through downtown, the fishing district, the bay, the outskirts of the Imperial Palace, etc... Thank you Yoshi our guide for an excellent experience !

We took the morning tour with Yoshi and couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Yoshi was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. We rode through the streets of Tokyo without any problems and saw both the older historic buildings along with the newer technical side of Tokyo.Thoroughly recommend this tour for seeing parts of Tokyo you wouldn’t see on a bus or train.

The guide was amazing, friendly and a pleasure to be with, Thank you Yoshihisa Odaka, nothing was to much trouble. Went at the pace we wanted . We were there when the cherry blossoms first came out, he even went to the trouble of sending us photos of them in full bloom a few days later. Yoshihisa, you made the tour, the best way to see tokyo was with you. Thank you

We really enjoyed the Tokyo Biking Tour! We did it on Dec 26, 2017. It was a fantastic experienced biking around the Imperial Palace Garden all the way to Tsukiji Fish Market. It was a money back tour! Our tour guide Mr. Minuro and Mr. Yosi was so accomodating and polite. He explained the significance of every stop we made. Mr. Minuro even took pictures of us with his own camera while biking. And he sent us the pictures through email.

My favorite thing to do when visiting a new city, is to go on a bike tour! Mamow did an excellent job as our guide and gave us interesting information about the different sites in Tokyo. Our tour included Tokyo Station, Sakuradamon, Imperial Palace, Tsukudajima, several shrines, among other things. I loved riding over the Sumida River. A variety of views and experiences. Thank you Mamow for a wonderful afternoon! Sharon Walls

We were supposed to go on the morning tour but because there were only two of us the guide allowed us to take the afternoon route. Our guide was fantastic, he took lots of photos and provided us with lots of facts about Tokyo and Japan - it was recommended to us by two girls who did the ride and we signed up immediately. As we are both in our early 60s we thought it might be difficult - it was not and we continued sightseeing on foot in the afternoon. Will recommend Viator to friends
