Absolutely the best thing I did in Osaka by far! Yūki was an incredible tour guide with an impressive knowledge of the city, its history, and had plenty of recommendations for what to do even after the tour was over. I would 100% recommend this experience if you get the chance!

This was a great tour with Matt and apologies for belatedly posting this review. Directions on the meeting point were very clear and we travelled by train to our meeting point at the Tsutenkaku Tower. Just my husband and I on this tour which was well paced, a variety of great food including Korean and a wonderful way to gain a little insider knowledge about this part of Osaka. We concluded with a demonstratIon at Tower knives and then did a tour of the Tsutenkaku Tower which hosted an amazing Billiken display, we had already met a number of these happy creatures on our our ride.

First full day in Osaka and an excellent way to see the city. Matt the tour guide was very informative throughout the tour providing information not just on Osaka but Japan in general. Cycle provided was fine, streets were not as busy as expected, so a nice pleasant ride.

Had such a great time in our small group, our guide Mayco also was a lot of fun, very knowledgeable, informative and very helpful. Biking distance was manageable for any fitness level and the tour I was on was a nice sunny day. I would do a bike tour again (Hopefully with Mayco haha! ) but would probably try the full day Osaka tour instead of the food tour. Great food, great company and wow what a beautiful amazing city!

Super fun to cycle a couple of hours through Osaka. Our host Mayco brought the city to life with good stories and historic backgrounds. Often illustrated with old photographs to point out the way Osaka has been changing over the century. To be recommended, thanks Mayco!
