Our tour guide, Mari, was excellent and very knowledgeable. When we started the day, she asked us what our interests were and catered the day for us. She learned that my husband’s grandfather was a kabuki actor, so she took us to the theatre and showed us around. We then went to Tsukiji Market and she showed us different booths, some that had been there for over 100 years, and we tried different things. We then headed to Asakusa to see the Buddhist Temple where we got our fortune and we were able to say a prayer. To finish the day, we went to the Meiji Temple where we learned about the Shinto religion. It was so beautiful and very peaceful. Again, Mari was very knowledgeable and we learned so much from her and we’re so grateful to have spent the day with her. My husband and I would highly recommend doing this tour and requesting Mari.

The Tokyo Skytree is an iconic building and well worth the price to go up. We paid the extra when booking to do the higher Galleria level. I think that was worth it although to be honest views were incredible from both. The app is worth downloading on wifi before you go as you can then lock it to the view and understand better what you're looking at plus switch day/night modes. There is a small optional area with a glass floor that gives you a sense of how far up you really are. The view of the Tokyo skyline is as impressive as you'd expect!

Well worth visiting the Sky tower for a unique view of Tokyo. We went at sunset and it was very busy. There was a 40 minute queue to go from the350m to the 450m floor. However, that said, it was great to see Mount Fuji in the setting sun.

Very helpful and enjoyable. This is the way to see a big city without worrying about the transportation. Our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Loved the VIP experience! Beautiful skyline of Tokyo!!
