I had been on a Tokyo bike tour by myself a couple of years ago. I bought my family to do the same tour. Unfortunately I mixed up the name and ended up on Noel’s tour, instead of soshis Pros: very fast, lots of miles mostly on main roads. Safety is his focus Cons: not the best maintained bikes. No water bottles included. He gives out a red helmet to a rider who is stuck at the end of the tour the whole time Set the seats so both feet are flat on the floor which was way too low for me and then was irked when I asked to raise my seat. Was hoping for more culture and stories about living in Japan. Didn’t get enough.

My husband and I take cycling tours in cities whenever we can. In Tokyo, we took Noel’s full day Cultural Tour. Noel knows the best back routes to cycle around the city’s highlights and he really knows his history for when we stopped. We had a great overview of Tokyo in 6 hours, hitting the highlights as described on the website. One downside was the pretty mediocre selection of bikes, of which very few are a large enough size for many visitors. My bike seat post had to be extended to the max and the saddle was still too low for my long legs. Also, we do a ton of cycling so we found the “how to ride” directions quite patronizing, although non riders might not notice that. The last negative was the speed that we had to tour various sites so if you go on this tour, just take note of your own personal highlights so you can go back the next day. In the end, we enjoyed being able to ride around such a massive city and would recommend this type of tour for sure.

Last week we joined Noel and a group of five others on a whole day biking tour around Tokyo. It was a superb day out, and a great way to get orientated in this mega-city. We wished we'd done it on our first day there. This was not our first visit to Tokyo, but our geographical awareness of the city was greatly enhanced afterwards. The day began with a very thorough safety briefing from Noel and the allocation of bicycles.The bikes are all in very good condition, and great care was taken to ensure that they were correctly adjusted to suit each rider. Be aware though, that because the bikes are made in Asia, they will likely feel a little different to Western bikes. Getting used to this takes only a few minutes, and its well worth the small mental and physical adjustment for such an excellent tour. The tour covers the Tsukiji fish market, a ride through Ginza's upmarket shops, the Imperial Palace, Akihabara, Ueno Park and lots more besides, all of which have been listed by other reviewers. Lunch consisted of some excellent Ramen noodles and Gyoza dumplings at a small local restaurant which Noel describes as one of his favourites. I can see why - they were really good! The background knowledge both of Tokyo and its chequered history and of Japanese culture which Noel brings to this tour is invaluable, and offers many cultural and historical insights. We'd highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo.

Today we biked with Noel to all his favorite and secret places. He is the best tour guide we have ever had-knowledgeable, kind, and genuinely cared about what individuals in the group were interested in. Most importantly, he carefully led us thru the streets and sidewalks of busy Tokyo. Lunch was at a small restaurant with fabulous soba noodle dishes. We saw the Imperial Palace Gardens, electri city, oldest temple in Tokyo... and the secret garden...a complete tour you could not do on a bus! Highly recommend this one!

I did a biking tour with this tour guide (Noel Curry) 3 years ago with my family. I recently came back to visit Japan for 2 weeks with my boyfriend and enjoyed my last tour so much that I booked another tour with Noel. We did the tour today and it just reminded me how amazing it was to see all of Tokyo on a bike. We'd been here for 3 days prior and haven't been able to cover nearly as much just by walking and taking the subway. Overall, I can't overstate how well worth your time this tour is. You'll learn so much, see so many things, and even get more recommendations for food/places you should explore on your own from the very knowledgeable Noel. Much of what you get to see and do on this tour would be difficult to do on your own without a great guide like Noel. Whether you're visiting Tokyo for the first time or for the tenth time, a biking trip throughout the city is the best thing you can do to start off your trip! Can't wait to come back and bike around Tokyo again!
