My tour guide Ichiro was fantastic! It really felt like Ichiro had a great and authentic connection with the shop and restaurant workers we encountered. It was really nice to see Osaka starting out from Osaka Station. I simply stashed my stuff in a locker and then was able to see the city. The tour does a great job of showing you some highlights of Osaka. I'd definitely recommend going back to some of the places at night!

We did Osaka walking tour with Kaori San as our guide. She has an extremely pleasant personality and showed us all the places with lot of interest and details. Ensured that we were well taken care off. Will recommend her name to our friends who are planning to visit japan and Osaka in near future.

Can warmly recommend this Osaka-Walking-Tour. Very individual tour (not just the usual tourist points) with lots of interesting details I would not have found on my own. I especially liked the little Osaka-Snacks and the fact that is was a walking tour and public transport (not a bus-tour). Would recommend to buy a day-pass for the Osaka metro/bus if you want to explore the city on your own for the rest of the day (Yen 800 on weekdays or 600 on weekends).
I noted that they do also special tours to Kyoto; Nara and surrounding places. Will definitely try to join one of these next time.

We have done over a dozen walking tours around the world, and we found the format of this to be strange and slow-paced. We spent over an hour (so 1/3 of the tour) of the time in Osaka Station City (a shopping complex). Some of the things we saw in this building may have been better as suggestions to check out after the tour. Also, we were rather surprised to attend a sit-down meal in a pretty mediocre restaurant, which was not advertised and cut into the tour time. Everyone found it a bit odd that we had to stop in here. Again, could have been better handled as a recommendation to check out after the tour. We enjoyed the pace of the second half much more (after leaving the restaurant).

If you're only spending a day in Osaka, I would recommend sightseeing on your own as you can likely see much more (unless you are very, very inept at getting around). We were hoping this tour would allow us to pack in more than we could on our own, but this wasn't the case.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you haven't been satisfied with our tour. We understand some would feel a little slow as it' a group tour. That's why we offer a private tour to be flexible to their needs. We'll try to improve our service and sure to provide better one next time. Thank you again. All Star Osaka Walk

4 of us booked this tour at rather late notice, but ended up having a private tour of the city ( they had another large group on a separate tour at the same time). We had a great day seeing the highlights of the city, most time was spent at Osaka Castle, Shinsekai, a knife store, lunch, then an hour or so walking around Dontonbori in Kimono! It was a reasonable spread of activities with a bit of knowledge on the way. My favourite part was the lunch, taking us to a local Okonomiyaki restaurant run by an old lady (not a chain store) and even though I felt like a silly tourist at the start, walking around in Kimono was actually fun and made for some great photos.

We booked a full day walking tour of Kyoto and Osaka with All star Osaka Walk
last April. Our guide met us at the Pier as we were cruising.
From the minute we met Minaka, we knew we were in for a Special day.
Minaka is full of information, she is so much fun, great sense of humour. We went
by Train, Metro, taxi . During the day, she tested our knowledge, just to make sure
that we paid attention and she rewarded us with little gifts or lollies.
We took the normal train in the morning from Osaka to Kyoto in the morning
and the fast train back to Osaka mid afternoon. Minaka will tailor the tour to suit you.
She is a very caring , always making sure that you are ok.
At the end of the day, we didn't say goodbye to a guide, but to a FRIEND.
I hope to go back one day to Osaka and see Minaka.

Ookini for your great review. We are glad you had a good time on our tour. Your review will be helpful to the future guests. Osaka is very convinient to access from airport and to go to Kyoto and Nara. So we'd like more guests to stay in Osaka. Hope to see you again soon. Thank you, All Star Osaka Walk

I was the only person on the tour and they still met me when other tours require at least two people. Akie was a great guide and very kind with plenty of knowledge to share about the areas visited.

Thank you for your review! We always welcome our guests. Thank you for coming in the coldest time in Japan! Spring and autumn have beautiful weather but a lot of tourists come to Japan these days. Winter is a kind of nice choice to come to Osaka and Japan. It's much quieter and enjoyable. Hope to see you again in the near future. Ookini! ALL STAR OSAKA WALK

Ichiro was an outstanding guide. He is very knowledgeable about the local area and made our tour seem very personal with each place we visited. He really loves Osaka and we enjoyed our walking tour with him (and all the photo opportunities). Definitely a must-do if you're visiting the area!
