    A peek into the ancient Tokyo. Our guide Kimi was really informative and considerate. Requires a lot of foot walk, so be prepared. Full of surprises, enjoy it.

    The tour was great. We got to explore places I wouldn't know to come and try samples at local stores rather than at tourist spots. Our guide Kimi was fantastic. Her explanations were clear. Every stops were short and sweet, made the walk seems less like 3hrs (imo great when having 2 young kids with you)!

    very informative tour, loved the first part where we got to see the more traditional shops which have been around for many generations. the second part was also nice but much preferred the first. our tour guide was very friendly and accommodating to our needs as we had a young toddler. meeting other people on the tour was nice too. overall an enjoyable experience.
