My daughter and I were visiting Japan for the first time and our first stop was Tokyo Ginza area. We booked a 2 hour walking tour for the day we arrived because we only had a week in japan and did not want to spend time trying to figure everything out on our own. Sergio was our guide he met us promptly at our hotel. We asked him if he would show us the area and teach us how to use the subway. He took us to some fantastic spots and showed us some very cool stuff that we would not have discovered by ourselves and that weren't in any guidebook. By learning the subway and getting the inside scoop on great things to visit in Tokyo we saved so much time. We were really able to hit the highlights in a very short amount of time. Sergios guidance helped our trip to be so much more better than it would have been otherwise. I can definitely reccomend this tour company and our guide Sergio to anyone!!
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.
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.
Cant say much because I was only on the bus fir about an hour but it was good because we went to a lot of Tokyo's landmarks
Great one day trip for city tour Nice landmark to visit Nice bus Nice tour guide
