The tour was a lot of fun. The places we visited were very nice and the dishes and drinks were also very tasty. The tour guide also was able to give good recommendation of which drinks and dishes to try and was able to give a good atmosphere.

Great time. Interesting mix of bars and the "snacks' were both tasty and more than enough for a meal The tour guide and fellow participants were very friendly and lots of fun. It was a helpful way to experience the night scene.

I did this the first night in Tokyo to get an idea of th bar scene in Shinjuku. I ended up being the only person on the tour... Which was awesome! Got a private tour of Shinjuku at night. It was a great introduction to Shinjuku. I highly recommended this tour my guide Koki was great and so friendly. We shared a love of travel and he also went above and beyond to point out places!

My husband watches a lot of YouTube of people traveling to different cities and eating in small, local eateries, where they don't have an English menu. That's what he wanted to do while we were in Tokyo and that was the kind of experience that he got on this tour.

Our guide, Keina, was a young, hip 20-something local. She spoke very good English. She told us a lot about what life is like as a 20-something in Tokyo and what the culture is like.

On our way to our first stop, she took us down an alley that was filled with small izakayas. We would've never found this alley on our own; it might have taken a few trips to Tokyo before we ever found this cool alley. While we didn't stop there on this tour, we went back ourselves the next night and ate at one of the izakayaa where they did have an English menu.

Our first stop was a a yakitori izakaya. Our second stop was at a restaurant that offered more seafood options. Our last stop was at a sake bar. The amount of food doesn't sound like a lot, but we were all full after this tour. No one was hungry. We also felt like the amount of drinks we got were plenty of drinks.
.
I wouldn't have known where to start to find small local eateries, given the limited amount of time we had in Tokyo. Moreover, we would have had a very difficult time trying to order at any of the places we went to because they didn't have an English menu or a menu with pictures on it.

It was definitely worth it to have a local guide us through the many restaurants of Tokyo!

We had a great tour with Shiori. She was very friendly and energetic. She brought us to 3 different bars and had good food as well. She gave us wonderful recommendations on what to do in other areas of Tokyo as well as where to get good Ramen and sushi. She was an excellent guide.

A very interesting food experience with a very nice tour guide. The tour guide took me to few good places that food were made differently from which I had known before.

This is the third time taking this tour in Tokyo. Every time I visit it allows me an opportunity to get out to places that I would never find and have a local experience. Each time the tour leader has been great and I have enjoyed meeting a number of interesting people.

Shin was our host and he was superb. Took us to 3 different bars and the food was good and range of drinks nice. Some of places were we drank Sake at end was a great find and would go back. Would have been nice to have eaten in the smaller unique places but with numbers may not be possible. This was a 3 hour tour and though expensive found it interesting and well worth the money as Shin our guide was knowledgeable and other people on tour good company.

This tour was a great way to see the back streets of Tokyo and to make friends. It's so cool to start a tour with an awkward collection of strangers and to conclude the tour as friends.

I was really surprised by how unmagical this tour was . The food was very average and the venues had no atmosphere. It actually almost felt like they just chose restaurants who really needed the money because they didn't have many other customers.

Our guide was very lovely and sweet but unfortunately she wasn't able to get the group connecting well. lots of quiet awkward moments.

I wouldn't recommend this tour.
