It was a well organised your which started on time.Our guide June was friendly and full of informations. Osaka Castle was very crowded but our guide managed to get our group up the castle without waiting too long in the queue. The best part of this tour was the four course lunch at Granvia hotel restaurant. The river cruise was a good way of seeing the sites along the river banks.We enjoyed this walking tour of Osaka and would recommend it to everyone visiting Osaka.

I enjoyed my tour and the highlight was Osaka Palace. it was cherry blossom season and the feeling was magical. the tours was at a... good pace. I enjoyed it more than a bus tour. the observation tower and the cruise was also most enjoyable. Osaka is a big place the subways are complicated. this is a good way to see some key sites within reach. the lobby of the Granvia hotel is not easy to locate so start early. more
