Warning: Do Not Book This Tour It Is a Scam
Heather
, Feb 2020
Warning to fellow travelers, do not book this tour. It is a scam. I arrived 20 minutes early to the designated location and the location instructions were incorrect. I called the contact number provided and the person I spoke to was unwilling to assist me even though I provided my exact location via a maps pin drop. After calling back several times over a 30 minute period trying to help we had no choice but to turn back. I reached out to Viator for a refund and they were unable to provide one. Again, this is a scam, do not book.

Ichi, our guide was really informative taking us to temples, on the roads, across bridges and through quaint authentic villages. Had a 10 yr old with us who managed to keep up too! Highly recommended.

Comfortable bikes that are easy to control. Our guide was knowledgeable, enjoyable and engaging. A great way to get a quick glimpse of Tokyo. If I were to do it again, I would do a full day tour.

SEE TOKYO UP CLOSE (WE WERE A PART OF HISTORY)

WOW how to see Tokyo and feel involved! The transition of the Emporer to his son took place the day we did the tour. First it was a little unclear where to meet but with the help of some Tokyo citizens we managed to get to the right place to start our trip. There was a lovely Italian restaurant just nest to the spot so because we went early we were able to eat lunch right outside beside where we left for the trip. (La Mermma). Our tour guide was Hideki "MORI" and was he great! Knowledgable (like a seasoned professor), patient, FUN, calm, a lovely person! Gave a very warm feeling for Japanese residents. Took us even down a beautiful alley with a private small neighborhood temple! explained about various neighborhoods! so knowledgable! love that behind the scene stuff! what a beautiful clean city!! so gorgeous and quaint I filmed a video of it! Saw more military and police than I have seen in my life!! so exciting! I felt so safe. Even riding in urban area with so much traffic was NOT threatened (and I am trauma surgeon)!! Such a small group we really got to know other riders! (six guests including us!!) Mori even took us to a shrine where they were playing drums and flutes for a festival! That was unexpected! Note: my husband and I are nearly 70 and we did not feel out of place or crazy for doing this (but we can ride bikes!) it was three hours (about 5 miles) but the best three hours we spent in Japan. If I come back I will certainly contact Mori for some more interactive touring in Tokyo. I feel like I have a Japanese friend!! what a day!!

Lots of Fun

We enjoyed this electric bike tour very much. It was well suited for adults and our 13 year old. Our guide took us to neighborhoods around Tokyo we never would have seen otherwise. He was also flexible with where we went and customized our tour a little to accommodate a request from the group. The bikes have electric power to support pedaling and you hardly have to work at all if you don’t want to. We enjoyed our afternoon very much! A great way to see Tokyo, and get some fresh air and exercise at the same time.

Yoshi, our tour guide, was excellent. He taught us a lot about the history of Japan and its emperors and shoguns, and he showed us a great overview of Tokyo. Because we had electric bikes, he was able to take us to places not accessible with buses or cars. We recommend the electric bike tour and would do it again to see other places.

My 17 year old son and I had a great time on the electric bike tour. Guide was upbeat and interesting. Tons of foot traffic because of cherry blossom season but after a couple of stretches where we had to walk our bikes things opened up and we got to see so many parts of the city we just would not have explored on foot. Great tour!
