What makes me know I'll remember this tour for the rest of my life was not so much the substance of the tour but the people comprising the tour group itself (guide included). Ayaka is an amazing, down to earth guide. She along with my fellow tourists became, somehow, seasoned drinking buddies by the end of the tour. Don't be shy or anti social. Get to know your guide and your fellow tourists around the table and I can almost guarantee you'll have a great night. Also, if you end up at Bar Araku, look up at the ceiling for the purple 100 PHP bill that has a little quip about "envelopes" and know you are staring at evidence of an amazing night by all whose initials dawn that bill.
Michael is a super cool guy who was fun to chat with. He was very knowledgeable in his choice of cuisines and super flexible with our preferences. We visited several local places that were not touristy. We even visited a shrine. He also took great photos and had good suggestions for vegetarian Ramen that we tried the next day—totally worth our trek! Thanks, made for a great first night in Tokyo!
Our tour guide was amazing and showed us many cool areas of Shinjuku. This is a good tour for relaxing at the end of a long or busy day. Kyoko was our guide. So friendly with a great spirit. Enjoyed the group for the awesome experience, laughs and memories. I highly recommend this tour while visiting Tokyo.
Amazing tour, we really had fun and Carlos is really nice and knowledgable. Food was awesome and the places we went too !! He answered so many of my questions, fun, fun, fun !! The group was great too.
A really nice guide with great knowledge about good local restaurants. The food was excellent and we learnt a lot about Tokyo. We have been on food tours in other contries and this was one of the best.
