“Great bike tour of Tokyo”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

One of our favorite things to do when visiting a new city is to take a bike tour. Akio, the owner and tour guide of Tokyo Bike Tour, did a great job showing the local sights during our 7 hour tour. Bikes are in great condition and it’s an easy ride with just a couple of hills. Several stops along the way including a stop for lunch in the afternoon. Tour starts and ends close to the Shinjuku station so even if you’re not staying in the area it’s an easy place to get to. Akio was also very responsive to emails that were sent prior to our visit to reserve the tour as well as sending pictures he took along the way after we returned home. Top notch tour company!

“Great way to spend a day exploring Tokyo”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Thank you Akio, he was very friendly and knowledgeable.
i took the tour on our last day in Tokyo but i should have done it on my first day.
Gives you perspective of the city and you get to see the main sights.
Bikes were great and the riding is very easy.

“Couldnt think of a better way to be introduced to Tokyo.”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Great way to see the more known sites, but also get a feel of the city and it's people.

Dress warm if going in winter... gloves, beanie, jacket etc

“Fabulous way to spend a day”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Akio was a friendly and knowledgeable guide. The tour was a wonderful way to get an overview of the city, get a glimpse of many neighborhoods, and see a lot of the major sites. The biking was pretty easy, only one real hill at the end, and a very safe route. The bikes provided are simple to use and in good condition. Tokyo puts bike lanes on the sidewalk, so you just have to watch out for pedestrians. I'd recommend this to anyone.

“Favourite visit in Japan”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We were visiting Japan for five days, mainly for the 2014 Tokyo marathon, but while there to visit Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara. So apart from the marathon, this was our favourite: easy going, no stress, a nice and quick way to see back roads and some big sights. Akio (who is the company) is knowledgeable enough and easy going, making the whole tour great fun and really relaxing. The cycling was easy (I had run 42k the day before, so was a touch tired) and safe. Note in Japan 90% of cycling is on the footpath/pavement meaning safe from cars, although you have the responsibility to avoid pedestrians. Our mountain bikes were in flawless condition: even the gears worked perfectly.
Much better than getting the metro: recommended 100%
