I traveled through Japan by myself in 2019 and had a great time bar hopping with Tommy and others in Tokyo! As a solo female traveler, I was a little worried about going out at night by myself but Tommy put me immediately at ease. He was a great tour guide and I highly recommend MagicalTrip if you want to experience parts of Tokyo that you might not normally see. So sad that I probably won't be able to go to Japan again anytime soon but once I can, I'm making sure to book another tour. Thanks Tommy and MagicalTrip!

Really enjoyed this tour of Izakayas that we would never be able to find ourselves. The options at each Izakaya were great and allowed preference for 2x food 1x drink or 1 x food 2 x drink at each Izakaya. Ended up in a sake bar at the top floor in the building which offered us good quality sake for 550¥ p/glass! I have never really enjoyed sake before but loved it at this place. All together a great experience!

Our tour guide was Yusuke and he did an amazing job. He got many of us to try drinks and foods we wouldn't normally but also didn't push anyway to venture completely out of their comfort zone. I think you try different bars depending on the night and tour guide, but we went to three different places and Yusuke had great recommendations at each. The highlight was a sake bar that had an English notecard on the four different types of sake and the flavors you could look for in each.

I went to the incorrect door of Uniqlo and could not meet up with the group. I had no way of contacting them either, so I sadly paid $100 for nothing and could not receive a refund. I wish I could have attended; it looks great!

I’ve been to Japan twice, this was my third time and first time with my wife. While I try to do my research every time, some spots are just really tough to discover on your own, or order the right things. We went on a tour with Mana and a very small group of other tourists. Mana was incredible. She somehow managed to be both fun and educational. I can’t imagine a better way of exploring Tokyo as a tourist short have a best friend who lives there.

We had an absolute blast trying the night dives and having local food. It started my love affair with umeboshi lol. One day, soon, this pandemic will calm down, and my wife and I will return to Japan. We will absolutely try the other Magical Tours options (we also did Asakusa magical tour on that trip and it was also great!).

We had a great night with our tour guide, Rai. We paid about $80 per person and went to three different bars. Included in that price was 2 drinks and a food item at each of the bars. We really enjoyed going out with Rai. It was nice to interact with a local since we don’t speak japan3se. We found some great spots that we ended up at again before our stay in Tokyo was over.

The tour is great, you feel as if you're hanging out with friends. Rina was amazing and we are even still keeping in touch. We were just 3 people in the tour and it wasn't akward at all. Moving from one spot to the other by train is a very local experience.

The tour was done in March 2018 (the website doesn't allow me to mark that date)

This is my second time doing a tour with the company. Despite barely making it to the meet up location I was able to find my tour guide Mami. No one else had booked so it ended up being just the two of us. She took me to some great bars with good food and drinks. We talked and chatted for almost the entire 3 hour gap. Since she studied in America we had a lot of stuff to talk about and converse with. I really enjoyed the scenery, the history, and the connections made throughout the entire experience. Doing Magical Trip for my first day in Japan has become my tradition to introduce me to places I'd never see or experience alone. Even if their service is considered a tour guide, it's way more than that. I look forward to using them again at some point.

Luckily I was the only one so it felt like a private tour. Misa has been a fantastic host and had great fun with her. I enjoyed the Karaoke experience, especially since Misa is a real singer/artist so it felt special to me.

Kazuya was the best tour guide we could have asked for. He was informative, humorous, and genuine. He even showed us a local restaurant after the tour and helped us order some traditional Japanese dishes.
