My guide Yosu was very friendly and funny. He was very knowledgeable on the history and layout of Osaka. We went around Osaka station, kuromon market, Ebisucho and dotonbori. He was able to recommend places to see and sites to see while in Osaka. We tried a few local dishes on the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone new to Osaka.

Osaka is amazing

Despite me being a terrible person (I showed up 20 mins late, lucky I was the only 1 in the tour), Yasu-san was very kind & even helped me check my luggage to my hotel (Don't forget I was a terrible tourist). We were blessed with great weather so we went around to the key places in Osaka. We didn't do anything crazy but the place is just amazing. There's something about the energy & atmosphere in Osaka that's very inviting, friendly & hospitable. I got to meet some locals thanks to my tour guide, Yasutomo-san. It was great learning a bit of Kansai-ben. I'd definitely recommend the place & the tour

An enjoyable experience with a witty gentleman

Had fun on this tour with venerable witty gentleman Ichi. Ours was a very small group and so felt like I was being shown Osaka with a friend. He took me to places I had not yet seen (I had been in Osaka for 4 days already) and clearly explained the history of many small streets and temples and gave me the history. I thoroughly enjoyed this time with Ichi.

We are happy to hear that we made it for you. We look forward to providing our service again next time you come to Osaka. Thank you. All Star Osaka Walk

This tour was okay but nothing to rave about. Thought we spent far too long looking at the station. Would rather we were out and about on the streets. Guide did take us to pick up out pocket WiFi which was helpful. Tour is probably too short to get a real taste of a vast city. We went to Osaka castle by ourselves after the tour, it was awesome.

Thank you for your feedback. We took your opinion seriously and try to improve the tour. We always hope our guests have fun most! Look forward to seeing you next time! OOKINI All Star Osaka Walk

Learned a lot of good info on Osaka from Minako. She is nice and and and provided good Osaka tidbits and that's why I sign up for these tours so you can learn about the city that you can't get from travel books.

Not what I expected

I must have misread what was to be visited. It was very kitchy, no historic sites. Our guide was very sweet and it was a very hot day and she did a great job. But if you are looking for historic stuff, this is not it.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
Thank you for your review. Yes, this tour is walking around the most popular areas in Osaka to know local people's real life now and then. Actually not historic site tour. We are sorry that it didn't meet your expectation. But we are happy to know that you enjoyed being with our guide despite of the hot weather. We appreciate that. Thank you again for your honest opinion. All Star Osaka Walk

We busted Oasay in April after a 10 day tour of Japan. It was an excellent 3 hour tour of Osaka Train Station and shopping district. Our tour guide Yoshi had a great command of English. We enjoyed the tour throughly. Only down side was finding the Tourist information Center. There are information centers on very floor which makes it confusing. Recommend you tell visitors it’s located on the first floor. When we Googled mapped it we were in the right location, but on a different floor.
