Hiro is just the best. So thorough and knowledgeable about Tokyo, its neighborhoods and history. In regards to the bikes and cycling through the city, rest assured you are in amazing hands. His equipment is top of the line and he is very safe is navigating you and your group even in rush hour traffic. Along the way you will get to enjoy some local delicacies and even sit for a lovely sushi lunch in the historic fish market. My husband and I are decent cyclists and we completely enjoyed the almost 5 hour leisurely tour of Tokyo and loved every minute we spent with Hiro. Even if you are a beginner cyclist you will enjoy this tour!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Romana. It was the quick intro we needed for Tokyo, to familiarize ourselves with the public transportation system and to see some of the city highlights. Even though it was a dreary day, weather-wise, we enjoyed that there weren't many other people around, which made it easier to take photos and see all the sites, without crowds.

100% recommended. We had a lot of fun, we met, ate and lived the experience like a local riding a bike around the city. Hiro was very kind and careful, we loved the tour with him.

We had a lovely time with our guide Mo. she was very attentive to our interests and gave us great insight on Japanese culture! I would recommend this tour !

I loved personally putting together the itinerary of those 6 hours, I was able to see many iconic places!!!
