Good for getting a sense of the distances and layout of Tokyo’s major tourist attractions. Taped commentary difficult to hear at times. Music accompaniment unhelpful and did not add to atmosphere. Bus stopped directly beside some attractions (Edo Museum, Tokyo Tower and Sky Tower) but others ( Asakusa, Royal Palace etc) were a couple of streets away. But, generally good value for the money.
Really nice, peaceful experience. I did a lot of research before going to an owl cafe as I was concerned for the animals' welfare. This owl "cafe" clearly prioritised the owls while still making the experience enjoyable for the humans as well! Not that there's no food or drink but the experience is WELL worth it if you can get in (make sure to book in advance). Loved it!
The fastest and cheapest way to look around the city if your stay is limited. Goes all prime locations. But too bad they wouldn't stop at "Ginza" district. It was too late to get off once they have announced the beautiful location of Ginza. Some of the tourist guides are hard to understand. Other than these issues, overall I'd recommend to the visitors.
The day that we picked happened to be raining and the first available bus was an roof top only bus and only one row of seats were covered. If that is the case for the day you go, it’s worth the 30min wait for the next bus that has bottom seating as well. Otherwise the tour was useful and got to see Tokyo and plan for another visit.
it was a great experience to fly over Tokyo, everything was perfectly organised and worked out really well. Of course everything was on schedule as it is usually in Japan ;-)
