Monkey Kart in Tokyo was a blast. Our guide settled any nerves we may have had with thorough instruction and we were able to see Tokyo in a super fun and different way we never would have expected. Thanks for guiding an incredible experience, Travis.

Awesome way to get my bearings during my first full day in Tokyo. The go karts went faster than I thought they would which was an exciting experience on the straightaways when we got a few green lights. Excellent orientation that made us prepared and safe during the experience. Guide also took numerous photos and shared all of them with us right away at the conclusion of the tour. Still have another week in Japan but I know this will be one of my best memories.
