    Andy was a top host for this off the beaten track tour of the city. Very different to other tours out there. We had a great time, met some fellow travellers and learnt a lot along the way. Highly recommended! Scott and JenMore

    My teenage sons (18 and 14) and I very much enjoyed the tour. It was our last activity before leaving Japan and we saw a whole different side of the city. It was fun and we learnt a lot!
