Wow! I honestly didn't want the night to end
Jan 2020
I've been to Tokyo numerous times. On this trip I wanted to find some new spots, so I decided to book a nighttime walking tour. Simon delivered. We went to interesting, history laden, hidden spots with some of the best food I've had in all of Tokyo! On top of it, Simon (the guide) was an absolute gem to be around. We laughed, we learned, we laughed some more, and then when it was late into the night and time for us to go, we cried. Such an incredible experience.

tl;dr - Go on this tour. You will thank me later.

A Must do tour!!!
Jun 2019 • Friends
Simon was amazing!! He not only answered all our questions about culture of food in Japan but he was extremely knowledgeable about the history and social culture of the country. Showing us an array of different types of food from street food to sit down restaurant letting us eat our way through 6 hours of the tour. This tour is a must for everyone. Simon was super friendly and was able to cater to our food preferences and amend the schedule if a line was to long or a vebdor sold out. If you plan a trip to Tokyo this tour is a MUST forever one that plans to eat!!!! Thank you again Simon for amazing time.

Great experience to have in a foreign country
Jun 2019 • Couples
Simon was our guide. He provided a comfortable atmosphere which my girlfriend and I could enjoy food in tokyo. Whatever we wanted to try he was able to get. Simon was friendly and very personable. He answered all of our questions and helped us get a better food experience than we could have on our own. Highly recommended, knowledgeable and a must do if you haven't done it before.
