“ Bad experience in Tokyo ”

although our tour guide was friendly and polite, he was extremely disorganized and everything seemed to be an issue. We spent way too much time in a car or wasting way too much trying to figure out meeting places. When we got to the shibuya crosswalk we informed him that we wanted to walk around and look in some shops and we were informed that we were unable to do so. When we got to harajuku we were more persistent on wanting to get out and after much debate we were able to get out of the car to have a little bit of free time. We believe that the price we paid for this tour was way too high as we spent majority of our day sitting in a car viewing the sites rather than getting out and walking them as we had wanted to. We informed the driver that we wanted to do some shopping but I think he understood it as showing up the shopping from the car window. We were extremely disappointed with this tour and it really did not give us a good experience in Tokyo. We felt extremely anxious, frustrated and angry for majority of the day to the point where we just wanted to go back to the boat. After he took us for dinner we still had some free time left and we stressed that we wanted to go outside somewhere to walk around but he kept insisting that we drive across a bridge to look at it from the car window. After much debate he let us out on the Ginza shopping streeet where we only had 20 minutes to look because so much time was spent in frustration. We would like a refunded for the day in which we felt was wasted.
