We were a group of two families (four adults, two kids and two teens) traveling together in Tokyo. Everyone had a wonderful time on this half-day tour! It was enough to get a flavor of the local market/culture without losing the interest of the kids and teens (and husbands).

We met Lucy at Tsukiji Hongan-ji. There was a little bit of a misunderstanding when we booked the tour. We thought that since the two families separately booked the same tour at the same time that we would be on the same tour, which is not the case (have one person book everyone on the same purchase to ensure that you're with the same group or contact the tour operator immediately afterwards and ask if they can put your reservations together in the same group). Despite our mistake, Lucy and the other guide made same quick phone calls and were able to get all of us together with the same guide.

Lucy navigated us through the fish market with ease. She took us to some vendors of interest, but also let us stop at whichever vendors caught our eye. She was very patient with us. We never felt rushed, but she also kept things moving along. She did a great job of explaining to us the different foods/ingredients that we were seeing and also answering any questions about what we were seeing and being offered to try. None of us spoke Japanese. Lucy's English was great and she was very helpful translating for us.

Afterwards, Lucy took us on a short bus ride over to the cooking studio. Masayo was the primary instructor with Lucy's assisting. We learned how to make Tomago, nigiri sushi, a rolled sushi and miso. Masayo explained each step very clearly in English. Our kids had a great time learning how to make sushi and they all ate everything that they made. Our daughter came home and asked if we could purchase a "Tomago pan" so she could make Tomago at home.

Everyone in our group said they would recommend this tour to their friends.

First part was a tour over the outer fishmarket with our awesome guide yoko who showed and explained us everything.
We got a lot of information about traditional japanese food and could try everything (e.g. little dried crabs tasting like spicy crackers).
After the tour we visited a modern equipped cooking school to learn to prepare a typical japanese meal.
We had great fun and learned a lot with our enchanting chef Hiromi.
Our conclusion: all thumbs up!!

Both the guide and our teacher were so good and informative. They took their time to explain all things and answered all our questions. If there's only one guided tour you do, do this one!

Did this tour with 5 other friends and it was amazing. The fish tour of the market was interesting and we learned about the local food and customs. We took the bus to the cooking studio where we made sushi rolls and an an egg omelette. We ate and tasted sake. Everything was wonderful.

This tour was awesome! Great sights in the outer market and surrounding areas. Was nice to stop and enjoy the local fare too. Our tour leader was knowledgeable and fun. The cooking lesson at the end was also delightful and informative, plus delicious once all was done!

We booked the day tour and lucked out because we were the old two people who had a reservation so we ended up having a private tour and cooking class. Our guide was so helpful and knowledgeable about the market. When traveling to Tokyo, seeing this market is a must do. The cooking class was such a fun experience as well. At the end we were able to try some Japanese traditional drinks as well. I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about Tokyo and sushi making.

Our tour group consisted of 14 tourists and 3 tour guides, yet our lead guide did not have any means of standing out in a crowd (flag, umbrella, etc.). My daughter and I stopped to buy something, I made eye contact with one of the guides to ensure that someone knew we were stopping, and when I turned around after completing my purchase (less than a minute later), the group had vanished. My daughter and I spent the next 30 minutes searching for them, to no avail. I finally called the number on my confirmation page (my cell phone plan does not include out-of-country calls, so I still don't know what that call cost me), and the guide that answered seemed to not even know we were missing from the group. We arranged a spot to meet and then she spent the next 10 minutes or so giving us a quickie tour because I was so angry, I was ready to burst. We hardly experienced any of the fish market--we absolutely could have done better just going on our own. We did enjoy the cooking class afterward, but not enough to give this tour a good rating.
