      Booked via get your guide and the team.will reach out to you via WhatsApp or.similar nearer the time to ensure you find the meetup in Akhibara. If you enjoy gaming,.anime,.electronics, I'd recommend to get there at least 2 hours to peruse around the area, there's a lot to see. Saady and Ayumu were absolutely easy to chill.and chat with. Their range of cars allowed me to see and experience things along the way that you can't see/do elsewhere More importantly, they are your ticket to Daikoku where they show you around and also give you enough time to do what you want. If you're willing to pay or have that charm, you may be able to get a drive in some of the other visitors with their special cars. After that, the crew will take you for a bit of photos around various spots like the Tokyo tower. What a memorable experience, especially at night, even on an off peak day such as Monday, can't imagine a Friday/Saturday night here! Thank you for the unforgettable memories

      Most amazing experience that any car lover can have.
      Amazing tour with Hitomi, she was an amazing and really enthusiastic guide. It was an amazing ride together with the other GTR’s and later even more cars. The music in the car by Hitomi was also on point and really good, we even got to play our own songs!

      Husband approved
      From the revs to the drift & everything in between , this tour has been the best if not the best experiences we had in Tokyo! Nero was great in touring us & bringing the fast & the furious experience to life ! He is quite a driver with great handle of the GTR 35! He was quite patient as we got lost in navigating Tokyo’s train system on our meet up point. From Daikoku to Tokyo Bay, my husband was in heaven drift . Kurt was far more accommodating as he went above & beyond in dropping us off to our hotel making sure we made it back to the hotel safely . This tour is husband approved and he claims as his Best. Birthday-gift. Ever.

      First time in a GTR
      This is totally legit. Had a great time with Kaito as a driver. He was extremely polite and gave us an exciting experience in the lbw gtr. Daikouku was such an amazing experience. Thank you

      Amazing Car Enthusiast experience
      For 2 years I've wanted to explore the wangan and this tour finally allowed me to do it. The meet up place was in akihabara and was very interesting in itself. The drivers were very welcoming and very much had a love for cars and the car community of tokyo.

    booked this tour a month in advance and booked it for a friday
    but on thursday the day before the tour they reached out saying the parking lot was closed for the day and if i wanted to reschedule for sunday or get a refund
    which i understand it’s out of their control when the parking lot closes but it was one of the things i wanted to do most in japan. being it my first time there so i decided to reschedule for sunday like they suggested. they confirmed the rescheduling, the date and time said it was all good *
    come sunday i message them an hour before the scheduled pick up time saying I was on my way and asking in what car will they be picking me up

    no answer
    waited in the pick up spot for 2+ hours as well as messaging them and emailing them several times and still no answer

    decided to leave after wasting my time just waiting for an answer and sent them a last message asking for a refund

    till this day. more than a month after they still haven’t answered any of my emails or messages not even to apologize

    had to contact trip advisor customer service in order to get my refund

    Terrible experience don’t recommend to anyone.

    I only selected this as I didn't have a car hired for this trip & really wanted to see the cars. We didn't end up going to Tatsumi parking lot & we weren't actually told why we didn't get to go there. I only realised that was missed when I returned looking at my itinerary. The PIT Autobac was also a little disappointing. It didn't even stock standard Honda items which I wanted to purchase to take back to Sydney & surprisingly they had loads of TESLA items there which I found odd. We got to Daikoku & although the vibe was exciting & seeing the cars that turned up, I was surprised at how quiet it was throughout the parking lot. Not that I was expecting a rave, but some sort of atmosphere would've made the experience a little more real I suppose. Also the selection of cars out that night weren't that far & wide. We had our JDM cars turn up & I was extremely impressed to see 2 lady drivers! I had trouble booking the car ride when I made my booking but was happy to get photos either way. I think the lady drivers made the atmosphere that night in my opinion.

    Our guide was efficient but I think wasn't too prepared on his group, there were only 4 of us & he didn't seem to know who had booked what. If we hadn't scoped out the JDM cars that were there for our photo op we would've missed out. Suggest that the guide was equipped on who had paid for what & ensured his group were aware of which cars were part of the package.

    Either way, I was surprised it included the return trip to my AirBnB which was fabulous as it was almost 11pm when I got back to my family. I recommend & hope when you book there are more cars for happy viewing.

    If your really into cars then maybe this is a good tour for you?
    We were under the impression that this tour was at least partially in a hot sports car but no its just in a van (it was a nicely appointed van)
    Went to a shop to start with which was very ho-hum, I mean I can go to a car parts shop at home any time I want to.
    We then went on to the Daikoku parking area to see a large variety of sports cars which was kind of interesting.
    The drive back to the hotel was interesting for all the wrong reasons, suddenly our driver seemed to think he was driving a rally car rather than a people mover van making quite a few of our party quite anxious especially as he tailgated other cars getting far too close at excessive speed.

    Expensive and I would never bother to do any car themed tour based on my experience but then again I don't really get the whole car thing.

    We arrived at the meet up location at 5 pm. We tried to email the trip coordinator at 5 PM to see if we were in the correct location and we did not get a response. When we checked in with the gentleman he sent us two streets over and told us that there was going to be a car over there waiting to take us to the tour, however, there was no car at the second street over so we walked back and by this time multiple people had checked in. He then stated that there was not gonna be enough cars “van“ to take us on the tour. we had scheduled a car. One gentleman scheduled a GTR arrived. He had to reschedule which there were still no GTR for him to take. He then stated that we would have to reschedule. However, I leave. Tokyo the next day, and was unable to reschedule. They then told us that there was a car meet that we could go attend across the street. Multiple people had been rescheduled and told to come back the next day. We were one of the first people to check in and then we were the last people to have to wait for a van that“might come”. The driver stated “if the van does not come, you can request a refund”. The driver then stated that he has multiple companies that he answers to. And he apologized, an apology does not fix the disorganize way of managing a business. One of the drivers gave us the “owners information,” which was the same gentleman The told us he was not the owner. he then stopped answering our phone calls and WhatsApp messages.

    This company is very unorganized, save yourself time and money, and do not book with them. Listen to the one star reviews not everyone has a great experience with this company. they are all for profit multiple over bookings are done.

    Arrived to the meeting location 20 minutes early, the scheduled time was for 6PM. About 10-12 people waited until around 6:45-6:50 after we tried commenting on their Instagram posts and DMing them before the first car showed up. They took about 7-8 people around 7:15pm when the second car came. They left 4 people behind and said another car was coming to pick us up. We waited 2 hours until 9:30ish. No one ever came for us, we ended up leaving. Waste of time and money. Originally booked on Expedia, couldn’t even get a refund from them.

    Honestly the worst tour we have taken on trip advisor, we drove for hours trying to find a site where there would be ‘cars’ then were told they closed the site, we then drove to the next site to see cars for 45 minutes, they say never meet your idols and this tour sums it up. They tried to make it up to us by taking us to Tokyo tower but for the price we paid for the tour I think this added insult to injury. Honestly do not book this tour, it is false advertising, as people who are keen petrol heads we were left disappointed. My advise, mark and avoid.

    This experience was amazing, riding with Anderson was great, such a nice and kind person, we loved talking with. We went together to a store for car lovers, which was great and then we went to Daikoku in Yokohama, even though it was Monday, we got to see plenty of great dream cars and we was thrilled to see this art in a shape of cars. Riding for 9 minutes on the GTR35 was insane! We loved every moment of it while listening to the iconic song of Tokyo drift. If you have the chance to do this attraction as a car enthusiasts, don’t hesitate and make sure to do so - Anderson said it’s best to book on weekends because there will be more amazing cars to see.

    Tour has three main parts:
    1. Automobile parts shop
    2. Daikoku PA visit
    3. A highway ride on tuned GTR sportcar (as a passenger, of course)

    1. For me, the only interesting things here were cool exhaust systems, and full engine kit, displayed on the second floor. And also there are a lot of books and magazines, some of which are quite insteresting (e.g. Ita-sha Heaven)
    2. There were a lot of beautiful (and fast, I believe) cars at the parking. But you should talk with people out there to make most of the visit. Some can tell stories about cars, interesting facts, personal experience.
    3. I'd say the first two points are no more than "just interesting", but the third one was AWESOME! It's absolutely unique experience, expecially for those, who is not deep into cars, or don't drive at all. And yes, it totally worth the price.

    Also, our guide Nicolas and Nito, owner of the GTR were very friendly, it was cool to chat with them.

    The tour was freaking amazing, everything I’d ever dreamed Japan car life would be. The drivers were amazing, Shun my drive went way out of his way to make sure I had the greatest experience. If you’re looking to have a peek into real JDM life book this tour!

    The tour was fun! A nice way to see some Japanese car culture as a foreigner. Organization is a little chaotic, so plan for some delays, but they make accommodations. Rides in the GTR are in short supply so be sure to confirm you are booked to ride before coming. I can’t speak on the ride itself as the car was overbooked, it did look the part though. Drop off was a little late, but convenient if you don’t want to take the train/Uber back to your hotel.
