Feel the charm of New and Old Tokyo


Tokyo is truly a city of many faces from ancient temples, high-tech culture, to quirky themed restaurants.
This tour is a great introduction to one of the largest cities in the world without feeling overwhelmed.
You can get a feel of the modern city (west side) as well as old towns of Tokyo (east side). I would also suggest to spend a full day in each side of Tokyo that offers very different atmosphere to embrace a whole Tokyo experience.

Enjoy this unique city through the eyes of locals at your own pace! I would love to share my love of Tokyo with you.
