We only stay overnight in Tokyo, and taking this tour gave us the highlight of Tokyo experience. The tour guide did an excellent job to get as much as information in such a short period of time. We would love to see more of Tokyo, and definitely will book through City Discovery again!
"Wewent up in the ToykoTower which gave us a great view of the city. We also went to the Imperial Palace Outer Gardens which we were fortunate to see the Royal Carriage which was transporting an official to the Palace. The guide was very helpful and outgoing."
