“This rates as one of the best day tours I have done. The structure of the tour was great, little things that made a big difference included entering through gate 3 and then leaving through the back gate, the late afternoon walk through San Francisco and the local businesses we visited. The commentary and information provided was just the right balance. I have to say how impressed I was with Rodriguez, having worked in hotels for many years I have seen the good and bad of customer service, he was fantastic, what really showed his great customer skills was the way he gently persuaded one of our group to climb the Pyramid of the Sun even though she was afraid of heights, it was a perfect example of how to look after your customers and you could tell she was incredibly happy that he talked her into doing it and then made sure she was OK through the whole experience.”

“Itzel was such a fun tour guide! She was spunky and super energetic. I wasn't really sure what to expect with this tour but it far exceeded our expectations. We had such a great time and would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a really fun night out in Mexico City.”

Shinjuku, Tokyo’s entertainment town, is where locals go to grab a bite and a drink after dark. And we’re joining them on this drink tour that’ll introduce you to local nightlife. Our evening will kick off at a Japanese izakaya-style eatery for happy hour. As is a favourite pastime for many Japanese, you’ll start the night off spending some leisurely time chatting with your fellow tourmates over drinks and snacks.

Once we’re warmed up, we’ll meander through Omoide Yokocho, a collection of alleyways full of tiny bars and eateries. Get a peek at the different types of food joints the locals usually eat at, from yakitori restaurants and soba shops to cafes and bars. Should you like to come visit again on your own time, Omoide Yokocho can be a great place to sit and eat elbow-to-elbow with the businessmen and see how they unwind after working hours.

Our tour takes us onward to Kabukicho, an area full to the brim with over 3,000 shops, restaurants, nightclubs, karaoke and the like. Awash in bright neon lights, Kabukicho is one of Tokyo’s most photogenic areas. With streets filled with people and music blaring from every corner, you’re sure never to have a boring evening in Kabukicho!

The evening will end in Golden Gai, a compact neighbourhood full of tiny bars that can usually only seat six to eight people at a time. It is here in Shinjuku’s most popular drinking spot where we’ll pop into one of your guide’s favourite bars and say kanpai (cheers!) over more drinks.

From here, your guide can either give you directions back to your hotel or next destination, or leave you chatting through the night with new friends.
