A great food and drink tour! Tak was a wonderful tour guide and a pleasure to talk with. I highly suggest this tour. It's a great way to see parts of the city that you might have missed on your own.

My husband and I did this tour on our first night in Tokyo and we loved it! It was a great introduction to Shinjuku and the perfect way to try local food and drinks. Our tour guide Yu was excellent and we would highly recommend this tour to other travellers. A great way to learn about Tokyo and the Japanese culture.

This was such an amazing experience. Yu was so friendly, gracious and informative. Learned a lot about Tokyo and Japanese culture, met some great people and had a wonderful night. My favorite part was golden gai. What an interesting and eclectic place. I highly recommend this tour.

My partner and I did the Shinjuku evening highlights food and drinks tour with Yu. We both agree that this was the best experience we have ever had on a tour! Yu was an amazing host, who made the night amazing. We felt like we were being shown around by a friend, not a host. We will definitely being doing the tour again when we return to Japan, and would recommend this tour to everyone.
