My guide Lily was awesome!! I did this experience on my first day in Tokyo and it was a wonderful experience. The food choices where great and so fresh! Lily was kind and so patient with the group. Her English was great and she told us so much about the fish market including a little of the history of the market. Lily also gave us wonderful ideas and places to go in Tokyo. She went to above and beyond and even helped me get back to the train station. I will be forever grateful to her!!!

We had a really great time visiting this place. Our guide, Mrs. Yuki, was so kind and polite! She started the visit explaining some cultural and religious issues about the Tsukiji Hongwanji (temple), located just in front of the market. After that, we went to the Tsujiki experience, and I have to say, It's essential doing this with a local. They know exactly where to go and what to taste, so if you go alone, you will miss the essential. Highly recommended!

Yoshi is my favorite tour guide to date.  She was professional, knowledgeable, and fun, with great taste in food and an excellent selection of stops. She even suggested things for me to do after the tour was over all of which turned out to be great fun.  I would do this tour again and recommend it it to all!

We met our tour guide (Yoshi) and the rest of the group that morning. It was nice, as the group was a total of 4 people + Yoshi. She was a great guide and super knowledgeable as she took us around the fish market showing and explaining items found in the various vendor markets.

My wife has celiac disease (so she can't eat anything with Gluten), and Yoshi was extremely helpful in advising what she could and couldn't try out while we were there, and even for the lunch, arranged for an alternative meal for her at the restaurant. This was so very much appreciated by us.

We both found this tour to be both informative and very enjoyable, and would highly recommend the tour and Yoshi. For someone coming from the US to Tokyo, seeing the fish market was really interesting and a very unique experience, and would recommend it to everyone.

My family loved this tour. The guide kept us eating and drinking for 2 hours! Tea, sake, beans, eggs, fish, fish, fish! We went back and bought. He gave us a map and marked the stalls. Wow. Thank you Toshi

My wife and I had a great guide. The tour took us though the different areas around the market before we saw the tuna cutting demonstration. the food we were able to sample throughout the tour was very good. I would do this tour again

I went on this tour on a Saturday morning while visiting Tokyo with two friends. It was one of the highlights our our trip. Our guide, Kyoko, was so sweet, funny, knowledgeable, and caring. She made sure that we, and the other couple on our tour, were able to take everything in at our own pace. The Tsukiji market has an amazing range of Japanese food and drink... it really is a great way to throw yourself into the 'foodie' culture of Tokyo. My favorite experiences were seeing tuna prepared for sushi and seeing the precision in making the Japanese omelet. Very highly recommended!

What was meant to be a visit to a fish market where chefs come to select their fish , was a walk through an ordinary market. Apparently the market has moved to other premises but the tour continued to operate without the main attraction
