Ms. Linda's review for another Urban Adventures tour
“Overall a great experience. As it was my birthday and another guest's birthday Karima had her staff ran out and brought back one of most delicious birthday cakes. I want to thank Karima and her lovely young staff (I can't remember her name) for the highlight of my 50th Birthday Tour of Morocco. Thank you for a magical afternoon. My one suggestions is that they printed and handed out the recipes at the end or beginning of the class. It would make a wonderful souvenir of that day. I can't wait to make Chicken Tagine for my friends.”

“The guide Mardi and driver Katut were incredible. I hope you can pass that on to their managers as they made the day better than ever! We would do the same tour and request them anyday!!”
ITINERARY

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.

Private 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.
