Tokyo Tour Reviews

Perfect Tour

Best decision I made while traveling solo through Japan. My main interest was to get the local flavor of the best food and drink the area had to offer, and with hundreds upon hundreds of bars and restaurants to choose from it would have been a shot in the dark without Tim’s knowledge of the best Shibuya and Shinjuku has to offer. Great stroll through the fascinating historical areas that I didn’t even realize existed. Learned enough to feel extremely comfortable going back the next night and hitting some other food stalls and bars. Tim’s a great guy to hang out with, and knows his stuff. This was the highlight of my trip so far. Thanks again!

Jeff C.

Jeff, thank you for the great review and pictures. I'm happy to hear the tour was one of your highlights of Japan. I'm glad we had some delicious food and enjoyed the history and cultural information of the areas we visited and other areas in Tokyo and Japan. Sharing travel and life stories was also really fun. It was a pleasure talking to you. Thank you for being a super guest!

Amazing tour of Shinjuku

Great evening tour with Tim in Shinjuku. This is a rather overwhelming side of Tokyo, however under Tim's impeccable guidance it became a rather exhilarating evening. I would never have been able to navigate this on my own. Thank you Tim for a lovely unique experience.

Derin A.

Derin, thank you for the kind review. I appreciate it. It was a pleasure talking to you and showing you some of the highlights in the Shinjuku area. Thank you for being a great guest! Please join me again if you come back to Japan.

Unbeatable Experience!

Where do I begin? What an incredible evening with Tim! This was by far one of our favorite evenings in Tokyo. First of, Tim is an American who has lived in Japan for many years, so he is fluent in Japanese. This was really beneficial as he was able to explain in detail the history of the Golden Gai and Omoide Yokocho in a way that was very entertaining and easy to understand. While we had good Japanese guides, having a native english speaker and someone familar with our own culture made the tour feel extremely personalized. We were taken to some extremely tiny bars and traditional restaurants and we thoroughly enjoyed the sights, sounds and tastes of these unique night life areas of Tokyo. Next time I visit Tokyo I will definitely do this tour with Tim again.

Dominique  C.

Dominique, thank you so much for joining me! You and your group were so fun to be with. Thank you for the great pictures and night together. Please join me again if you come back to Japan.
