“highlight of our trip to Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

When my Husband and I arrived in Tokyo we were amazed! I had read how huge the Metro is, but we wanted to experience it. We did and we never got lost. But the highlight of our Trip to Tokyo was the Cruise on the river. You get to see Tokyo from a different side. There we were greeted by a Geisha Girl and a guy dressed as a Kung Fu warrior. And the guide spoke perfect English. We also took a tour to Mount Fuji, which was unforgettable!

“Don't drink the beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

The views are good, nice to see things from a different perspective but they are a little limited and there's no information about the buildings or areas you pass. The drinks are expensive and the beer tastes like bilge water, never had a worse beer than this.

“Wonderful City.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

I thought New York was good until we visited Tokyo,the place is amazing,so friendly and everywhere you go is spotless.They are way ahead of the west in every way and you notice that when you see their transport system and their shopping areas.The boat tour was really good and takes you to different locations where you can get off and back on the next tour,excellent country and culture,I would love to return some day.Can get very warm.

“Long wait for the cruise to start”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Not a must do, no fantastic sights, and the commentary is too soft , the vessel is also tired and overworked .
