My husband and I booked this as our first tour when arriving in Tokyo. It was a fantastic way to learn a few different areas in the city while enjoying some delicious ramen! There was one other couple that joined us, so it made for a nice and intimate tour. We did a lot of walking and stopped at a few locations that had picture-perfect views along the way. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind! Overall we had a great experience and really enjoyed the various ramens.
