A Recent Review of this tour

This was our first day of four in Tokyo. He gave us a fantastic overview of the city. He also helped us understand the subway system and made sure we understood how to get back to the places we visited if we wanted to come back on our own. He was very flexible and covered a huge area of the city. We highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a Tokyo overview.
