Osaka: Shinsekai Food Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 3 hours
It was so much fun! I ended up being the only one on the tour which made it an even more personalized experience! It was a nice mix of tourist hotspots and local hangouts. Shoutout to my guide Luca who not only showed me all the delicious food but also added in cultural facts and personal stories which made the experience even more enjoyable! 10/10 would recommend, especially if you are a solo traveler like me! It is a lot of food so make sure to come hungry!
Andrew was knowledgeable of the area and the Japanese culture. My main concern was to get acclimated of the area I was in and locating the meeting points of my future tours. Very helpful. I highly recommend hiring a private guide upon arrival, especially if you’re a solo traveler. Two hours is too short of time if you want to go to various sites. Depending on where you’re staying. I was in Umeda. Thank you Andrew for your fine hospitality!
Sivana was an exceptional guide with a great energy and exciting conversation. Very well informed about the unknown aspects of Osaka n Osaka culture. She very quickly found our preferences and showed us a side of Osaka not mentioned in the tourist pamphlets. Very helpful in giving us recommendations for restaurants and night life activity for us to do on our own after the tour, which were indeed great.
My mother and I visited Osaka and felt we needed a local guide to help us navigate the city and provide some background on the locations we wanted to visit. Our guide Juan was absolutely fantastic. He was knowledgeable, friendly, organized, flexible and pleasant. He made our visit one we will always remember. I wish all guides were so great. I cannot recommend him enough.
I first visited Shinsekai then it was a dirty town with lots of drunkard.. But now it is a really fun place and there are many delicious restaurants. I had Sashimi, Yakitori, Tonpeiyaki and more. These are awesome Osaka local foods. Andy was guide my tour who was so nice guy and have a knowledge of Osaka's history. If you visit Osaka, don't miss this tour.
