I would recommend the Tokyo sightseeing tour to both the first time Tokyo visitor and the seasoned traveler. In one day we visited many of the main attractions in air-conditioned comfort, which was wonderful. The best thing, in my opinion, was the overview of Tokyo city sights and Japanese culture from Blake (our guide). This local information helped us a lot in our decisions for the rest of our wonderful vacation.

A must

The bus tour was an experience. The bus was very comfortable and the guide was really nice and explained everything to you. We saw the most important things and it was a great day with a lot of variety. Everything was well organized and still you have enough time at the respective stops. Definitely book lunch as it takes place in a real sumo restaurant.

What a great experience we had !! We had the BEST tour guide named Levin. He was funny, knowledgeable about the history of Japan, welcoming and all around great tour guide. Having a great tour guide can make all the difference. He was the best we ever had. The imperial palaces are beautiful, the Skytree view is spectacular and the lunch provided is absolutely delicious. Thank you Levin for making our tour a very memorable one. If I ever come to Tokyo, I would want to see Levin again. The tour was great because of our tour guide Levin ... he gets a 11/10 from us in Australia.
