Saw many beautiful places in Tokyo in just a short time. Levin was a very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor! His trainee Jana was also great.

As two couples that had not visited Tokyo before we booked into the "One Day Tokyo Bus Tour"
It was the best thing we could have done, we saw many parts of Tokyo, experienced the sights and sounds, blended in the locals, experienced the Japanese culture.
Our guide "LEVIN was a delight, speaking perfect English and have a great deal of knowledge of the areas he took us too. The trip was well organized and ran like clock work. I am in my seventies and found I was quite comfortable with the pace set, It is a long day starting at 8:45 am at the LOVE piece of art (see picture) and returning around 5:45pm that night. My only complaint is that the tour finished at the Shinjuku Station and it took us more than a hour and a lot of help from locals to get back to our starting point so we knew where we were. Other than that the day is great value. PS Make sure you include lunch with your tour it is well worth the experience.

this was my favorite tour in japan, our guide LEVIN was amazing, so educated in the history and so informative about the present, there was not a question he could not answer. he was also very funny, he made the normality of a tour so extra special. the stops and the timing on this tour were perfect. the sights were the best and the bus was very comfortable, when im on a tour i like commentary so that i learn things by the time im done and this one was perfect, i highly recommend. i did not eat the food but my fellow travelers say it was good.

This tour is great to see the highlights of Tokyo in one day. Our tour guide Melody was very informative along the way with facts about Tokyo. Our other guide Kappa also looked after us making sure we knew how to get back to meeting points. Lunch at sumo restaurant was very good. Unfortunately Tokyo skytree was closed due to the virus. Disappointing.
My only comment is that at the end of the tour we were dropped off to a train station to get our way back to our hotel. As we had only arrived the day before in Japan we were not sure where the entrance to the station was. We eventually found it but it would have been helpful if either guide could have taken a minute to show us how to get to the train entrance.

Enjoyed the tour however very disappointed to be told the day before tour that the cruise on Tokyo bay was canceled, I booked this tour as it included the cruise! The lunch at the sumo restaurant was awesome and we got to see all the major sites in Tokyo which was great as we had our 6 and 8 year old daughters with us, they enjoyed it too!

The guide was not knowledgeable at all, this was more of drop on / off of places then guided tour since we were left to wonder around without guidance. The team was nice and helpful but it was underwhelming. We did not do the cruise becoz of the weather they said which Was very disappointing.

The tour did not visit nor drive by some listed attractions, eg Godzilla, Tokyo Statue of Liberty, Olympic stadium, plus a couple of others. Lunch however was very good. Final concern was that we were picked up at a hotel but dropped off at a train station a couple of miles from our hotel. We might have missed it in the fine print, but so did a number of others on our bus. Fortunately, our tour had a young lady who was interning to become a guide on our trip and she spent about 15 minutes of her own time navigating us through the complicated train station.

Not really the tour’s fault, but it was during the holidays and so packed we could not see or enjoy any of the locations. The first shrine was blocked off for New Years and couldn’t see much of it. The Emperor’s palace and Odaiba boat tour was a waste of time. Didn’t see anything at all. Couldn’t go to the top of sky tree due to ppl. I would go on my own next time. I just wish they had told us any of that. A disclosure in advance would have been nice. The tour guide was lovely and the bus driver was amazing. The bus was a nice way to get from place to place, but that’s it. I would still recommend them just not during a busy holiday and if you realize you don’t really get to see two of the locations.
