Good Introductory Bus Tour

Reviewed by: Newbie Travelers, 2016/04/20

It was raining a lot the entire time we were on the tour. At the Imperial Palace, there was no time to roam around because we were following the guide and the group took many pictures under the rain. At Asakusa, we were allowed to roam around on our own and strolled along the shops at our own pace. However, we had to wait for everyone at the tour to get back on the bus. Some people choose this to be their last stop and we lost time due to miscommunication. We ended up with less than 10 minutes to spend at the outer fish market.

The main highlights of this tour is the bus ride with the audio commentary and the buffet lunch. The lunch location overlooks the bridge and statue of liberty - spectacular view. There is not enough time to explore the stops provided in the tour. It is best to choose an area to explore and have the bus drop you off as your last stop. We chose Shibuya as our last stop and walked back to Shinjuku.

Other Tips:
1. This tour is good for people arriving on the first day and dont want to explore too much.
2. If you want to eat Japanese food, i would suggest not selecting the lunch. We were full from the American lunch and did not have room to eat dinner!
3. If you like to explore and walk at your own pace (whether fast or slow), then you should not select this tour.

  • View from lunch - Safe from the rain

Fewer stops with more in-depth guidance needed

Reviewed by: Farah Sarfraz, 2016/03/28

To begin with let me highlight an important aspect of the day that may have caused our experience to be inferior. The weather on the day we took the tour was dull and raining at some of the spots

The tour is ideal for people who want to do a self-guided style tour covering most important sites of Tokyo. Since this was our first time we felt that with little guidance from the guide we were basically just strolling around and checking things ourselves

The tour started off with the Imperial Palace east garden. We just strolled past some part, took pics and we're back in the bus. Along the way we passed by some of the districts and the audio guide was helpful in understanding some aspects. But definitely nothing close to having a guide who will explain things. Next we got down at Sensoji shrine but without any guidance just pretty much strolled around. Would have liked to get some history and perspective on the structure.

The outer fish market was extremely boring - it's basically like any other market. Would have loved if the tour gave a peek into the inner market though which surely is more interesting ! Then was the Odaiba cruise which was average.

The best part of the tour was the lunch. It was an American diner with a wide spread of options from Italian to Chinese to a few Turkish dishes. Oh not to forget the traditional Japanese cuisine too.

The guide we felt was a bit inexpeienced but definitely did make our journey comfortable. She was also very accommodating and flexible

Wish this tour was as awesome as the Mt. Fuji one by the same tour company

Quick and good for shopping

Reviewed by: Dolce, 2016/03/17

This tour was a little different, as you get free time to explore the various areas without a guide (they can give helpful tips but don't walk with you) and then meet up again. I liked this, because I could see exactly what I wanted and try lots of sweets. It was nice to be able to choose the drop-off location,very convenient. We had good weather too, lucky!
