4.3 / 5

based on 670 reviews

We chose a private guided tour on our first day in Tokyo which appeared to be a splendid idea. Our guide picked us up in the lobby of our hotel and from there she took us through Tokyo with the subway from place to place. Tokyo is not easy to overview for a first timer but after having this first day with a guide we know how to use the subway and how to find our way through Tokyo the next few days. We managed to experience many spectacular monuments of Tokyo. We also went up in the Tokyo skytree. That was amazing. We could see Fuji mountain and got an overview of the big city. Good to do on your first day in Tokyo. We can only recommend a guided private tour. We had 6 hours. We would not recommend less since it’s a very big city

Highly recommended! The entire experience was so unique and enjoyable. The food was good. Ambiance was spectacular.

The very nice man showed us what we wanted and many recommendations on what to do, how to see what to try…

Easy to use. The voucher provides a ticket to the observation deck. Nothing more, nothing less.

Yuko-San provided an excellent tour. Very knowledgeable, personable, and efficient!
