    Tour starting point was easy to find and met with Kevin without hassle. We were a mixed group of nine and Kevin was awesome. He is engaging and answered all our questions. Any he wasn’t sure of, he found out along the way. The tour itself is one the best we have done and really shows you the behind the scenes aspect that tourists wouldn’t normally see. A fantastic night and highly recommend!!!

    I had a great time with Remi! Would recommend the tour to every vegan visiting Tokyo! I laughed a lot and really enjoyed the food. :)

    We booked a tour in Osaka with our 5+7 year old boys. We spent 4 hours eating our way through different neighborhoods, stopping in arcades with the boys and having the best time. Our guides were so warm, friendly and knowledgeable. And our entire family felt at home. Even as residents of Japan, this tour was so super valuable. What a cool way to explore a city. We couldn’t recommended this experience more!!!

    This is the second time I've done Rodney's drinking tour and it was just as memorable as the first. His knowledge of all those hidden Osaka bars is first class. We had some delicious food, some fantastic drinks and met a load of great characters. Seriously, if you're only going to do one thing in Osaka make it this tour!

    ...and I owe it all to youuuuu! No but seriously, such a great night out. I did this tour ages ago but saw some photos the other day that made me remember how amazing it was. I was a little nervous to be honest because I was a solo female but the guides, Pukka and Kate, made me feel so comfortable and I had SO MUCH FUN. I made friendships I’ll keep in contact with for years to come and memories I will never forget.

    Basically, if you want a night out in Tokyo, this is the only one to consider!

    Our guide Hori was very fun and had great command of English. She also lived in France for 20 yrs.. made us feel at ease. Our conversations were not small talk and it felt like we got to know her and other tour members well. small group of 4. Almost like a couple of friends bar hopping and joking around. The first stop was delicious- okonomiyaki hiroshima style. The grapefruit sour drink was so good I had to order 2! next stop was a gyoza joint in an underground basement. Also very delicious with fun games where you can win drinks. Grape sour drink was very yummy. Both places we would never have found without this tour. Last stop was a sake bar. By then we were all very full, relaxed, having a good time with great company.

    What a wonderful evening. Great food and a brilliant guide. Only 3 of us on the tour so very intimate. I could not fault the tour or our guide at all.

    Despite being entirely online (during COVID19), I had a great time! The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and I learned so much about the Fushimi Inari shrine! Thank you Akiko-san!

    We did three food tours with Pinpoint Traveler in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. They were all great, though Mardi in Kyoto was really special. She put a lot of planning into our destinations and all of the food was delicious. My husband and I really enjoyed our time in Japan, getting to try the local cuisine. Highly recommend!

    For years, we have watched the documentaries about the Japanese snow monkeys that come down from the mountains and sit in the hot springs. When we found we were going to be in Tokyo, we decided to take a day trip to see them. If you decide to do a day trip, be forewarned: it is a long day! Not knowing the area, we decided to book a small (6 person) tour. We were lucky enough to be the only 2 on the tour. We also felt lucky to have Ryoko Aosaki as our tour guide. She is knowledgeable, respectful and flexible. She tailored the trip to us. We are willing to keep moving so we were able to cover a lot of ground. In addition to the snow monkeys which were an absolute delight—despite the tourist crowds—we visited the lovely Zenjoki Temple. It was a great day in the Nagano area, and I would highly recommend Ryoko as your guide if you are unfamiliar with the area.

    Booked the local Shibuya tour which was highly recommended by my sister and had one of the best nights ever. Period.

    Not usually a fan of tours, Naoki San and Kevin San have such a bright and beautiful spirit and energy that I fell right at ease. The tour brought in-depth insider knowledge and information about the nuances of Japanese culture, the location, and people. The first-hand experience of Japanese bar culture was definitely an eye-opener. Who knew Tokyo's tiny bars would create an intimate, friendly, and cozy atmosphere.

    The highlight of the night would hands-down be the genuine connection I made with random strangers and most obviously, Naoki San and Kevin San. Which I feel is particularly unique to Tokyo Handsome Boys.

    To sum it all up, started the night as a tour, and ended as an amazing night as friends.

    Hee and Maho were great hosts! It was also a good group that made it feel like just a bunch of friends hanging out. We got to see some bars that you wouldn't normally find on your own, and had some great drinks and food. I would definitely recommend this tour!

    The whole experience was wonderful. Gizem showed us some incredible sights and superb eating experiences. Her knowledge is second to none and she really made the trip for us. Can’t wait to come back and continue to be surprised and excited through Foodie Adventure Japan’s magical tours. Thanks so much Gizem.
