Tokyo city tour by Electric Bicycle A
Tour Description by Japan city tour
One of the most fun ways to explore a city is by (electric) bicycle. You can see more in a shorter period of time, you get a good feel for the city and as a bonus, you get less tired compared to walking so you will have plenty of energy to discover Tokyo by night after the tour.
Another big plus is that the crowds can largely be avoided by using bicycles, making this tour more corona-proof than some other tours. One more great point about our bicycle tour compared to other suppliers is that our tour lasts between 6-7 hours as opposed to 2-3 hours, which makes for a full, active day program.

- Highly recommended!
The guide didn’t only tell us a lot about the history of Japan but she also told us a lot about Japanese customs and culture. We used the knowledge we gained during the tour throughout the rest of our trip in Japan, it is very useful to do a private tour at the start of your holiday so that the rest of your trip becomes a lot smoother.

- Very interesting bicycle tour through Tokyo
The day after we arrived we did a bicycle tour through Tokyo with a very pleasant guide. She told us a lot during the tour and was very helpful in giving tips for the rest of the day. The tour was varied, with a bunch of different sights in a short period of time. It was also interesting to receive background explanation from someone with a non-Japanese background in addition to the Japanese guides we had during the rest of our stay as it gave a different perspective on past and current events. This was a great tour!
