This was one of my favorite tours on our trip to Japan! Kevin and Elton were great guides, and we ventured into a side of Osaka that we may not have seen on our own. We has so much fun! And the food was amazing!...More

Apart from three different eat/drink locales, we walked through a pachinko parlour and got a description of how a 'love hotel' functions (no walk through for that though). A small group size limit and a great guide plus more than the three hours promised equalled...More

Went on the tour during our honeymoon. There were 4 of us total (2 couples). Had a fantastic night with our guide Nico! Great food, plenty of information and overall a very fun time. Highly recommend.

I’d give this 5 stars if it weren’t for all the cigarette smoke I was exposed to on this tour. The food was delicious and the guide was witty, but the smoke interferes with taste and you’ll want to wash your clothes afterward. That said,...More

I'll start by saying, this is not your average food tour. I mean this in the best way possible... Kevin our guide delivered a combination of local facts and knowledge with a sizeable and welcome slice of wit. The 3 hours really did fly by!...More
