Finding the Right Bus Tours in Tokyo

By now, you might be considering of booking a bus tour for your trip in Tokyo. It clearly saves you the trouble of navigating your way through Tokyo’s complex transport system.

 

The real question is,...

How do you find one?

 

If you want to join one, you can simply go to the company’s website and book a tour. Some of them also accept reservation by phone. Other companies also offer bus tours without reservation but it would be a gamble. I would not recommend not reserving a tour since you’d never know if it’s full or not.

 

Each company that offers city tour buses have a list of specific services that they provide in the tour. So, make sure that you have chosen the best bus tour itinerary that fits your taste before you book!

Where to find the perfect bus tours for you?

One thing you need to remember:

 

Booking a bus tour could be a gamble. You will never quite know if a tour is worth its price or not until you actually join it.

If you do decide to book a city tour bus tours, I would recommend booking from the Triplelights website. They offer a vast option of guided bus tours in Tokyo and other destinations too, with reasonable costs. It is all according to your needs and preferences.

We had a great time with Yoshi. We subwayed and walked all over (30k steps) Tokyo. We saw so many things that we never would’ve even known to see or, if we had known, wouldn’t have known how to get to efficiently. We also learned a lot about the history of Tokyo, ate excellent sushi, and left with a plan that worked perfectly for the next day. Thank you, Yoshi!
