What people are saying about Shinjuku City

A guided tour through Harajuku and Shibuya was a great way to cover these key areas efficiently and cover the highlights. After the tour we wandered again through some of the areas we had been shown eg Cat Street and the cool little roads around there.

My tour guide was Patrick. I can only recommend him to everyone, he knows Tokyo very well and was able to show me many places that I would never have found on my own. The food, drink and the trip through the alleys - everything was just awesome!

It was a pleasant walk and the weather was good. I wish it would have been longer but I was able to stop by and buy some fruits. The only thing I am still scared to go out on my own not very good with directions and not familiar with the dialect

very nice day. sumpa and exciting guide! to do absolutely!

our guide Anna was amazing and we had so much fun!
