This is a great trip to get your bearings in Tokyo and would recommend doing it on your first day. The busses are very efficient and easy to use. The only issue is that unlike many major other cities, most of Tokyo’s major sites aren’t accessible/visible by road so you do need to get off the bus and walk for a few minutes if you want to see everything… that being said the info you recieve about each site is at a good level

Our guide Yeonmi was just a godsend, booked online at the last minute. She helped us navigate Tokyo with great insights into the culture and ways of the Japanese people. She was funny, considerate and helpful to the utmost. Her advice on how best to utilise our short time in Tokyo was invaluable in making the most of our trip. We cannot recommend her enough.

This is a must go because it will let you have an overview of Tokyo. And the customer service team of this app is extremely responsive and helpful. My flight was delayed and immigration was so crowded and they helped to arrange the next day.

The guide was very good English speaker and well know of the area. We really enjoyed the tour guide until the last minutes. I really recommend.

Lines timing doesn’t connect properly Not enough bus frequency
