Andy was such a good tour guide! He showed us the spots where no tourist usually goes to. On top, he gave us interesting side facts about Osaka and Japan. The food was delicious and varied a lot. Besides that, the group dymanic was great. I definitely recommend the tour and especially Andy! The only thing I could complain about is that we did not get the gift chopsticks that are mentioned in the Get your Guide description. Nonetheless, I give 10/10.

Guide Kevin was a great person to hang out with to drink. His effervescence led to good cohesion and amazing energy within the group (which started off the night as a group of strangers). Food was brilliantly tasty; drinks were unique with many to choose from; makes for an excellent way to spend an evening in Osaka.

There was a wide variety of cuisine on this tour. I was able to enjoy gyoza, beef esophagus, tofu, and more. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. He also included fun little trivia quizzes for our group. I think we all had an excellent time.

Andy was amazing! Even though I had travel issues and missed my original tour date, Andy was willing to work with me. The food was all amazing, and the spots we went to were all great! Definitely felt like a local.

I really enjoyed this tour! It was great to experience a variety of food from places I wouldn’t usually have tried. I learnt a lot from tour guide Andy and thought the tour was great value for money!
