Don’t waste your money
Apr 2019 • Friends
I believe that you can get same experience from walking though markets on your own. Guide was great but think that if we were on our own we would have got to taste same food as they were giving tasting to tourists. Would have save money just walking though markets and stopping at interesting foods outlets.

Thank you very much for your review. We are so sorry we couldn't meet your expectation for the tour. We always would like to show the off the beaten tracks and help our guests understand locals and back ground of food culture. We guess our guide didn't tell enough to make each spot and food special. Your review will give us good clues to improve our tour. We need to discover more new and authentic eateries that hard to go by their own and how to tell why it's special. Thank you again.

Excellent tour with fantastic guide
Did the night private tour with Akie. She was a really pleasant guide who had plenty of interesting nuggets to share about Osaka and insights into the best places to eat. She also has a pretty good command of English so that shouldn’t be a problem for people to understand her. Tour is customizable based on your preferences which really helps, especially if there are things you’ve done which you want to give a miss and Akie is very accommodating. Brought us to an excellent tempura joint and a sushi joint. Food quality was top notch. So good that I had to go back again on my own the next day. Restaurants are not your typical tourist joints and filled with locals for an authentic experience. Akie also showed us to various alleys out of sight for the general tourist which made for a great experience. Market tour was also good with Akie pointing out the best things to eat. Overall a 5 star experience. Would recommend to all and would definitely do it again. Tour price is inclusive of food and Akie doesn’t scrim on the food. Left the tour feeling absolutely stuffed.

Thank you very much for your warm and thoughtful review! We are happy to hear you had a great time and enjoyed food on tipsy tour in Osaka. Sushi, Tempura and other Japanese food are already popular in other countries so tour should be more special and memorable..We'll try hard! Looked forward to offering tour again! Thank you, Ookini!

Wonderful food and experience
This was a highlight of a my day trip to Osaka. Akie-San was a very well informed and gracious tour guide. Tried a wide variety of cuisines at various places, and managed to avoid the crowded tourist spots to go where the locals shop and eat instead. Yummy food and authentic experience. Highly recommended.

Amazing foodie tour of Osaka
Mar 2019 • Couples
We had an amazing time exploring Osaka with Aki on the Foodies Tour when we visited Japan on our Honeymoon. We ate our way around the city and learned so much about Japanese culture, both food-related and otherwise. In a city so full of delicious markets and restaurants, it's difficult as a tourist to know where to begin, but we were in good hands with Aki, visiting a range of authentic places with plenty of local charm.

We were only in Osaka on a Wednesday, and the website states that they normally don't run this tour on Wednesdays. When I enquired about this, we discovered that this was because the normal market visited on this tour isn't open on Weds. Nonetheless, Aki was so accommodating and took us to a different market instead, giving us a local's insight into the authentic stalls and foods. We then proceeded to explore the city, sampling all the delights Osaka has to offer. Aki was warm, friendly and knowledgeable, and we can't recommend her tours enough!

A must-do in Osaka!
Jan 2019 • Couples
I've taken the food tour twice now with All Star Osaka Walk, and it's fantastic every time! My family and I loved it so much three years ago that when I came to Osaka with my boyfriend, I had to take him on it. All our guides have been lovely & knowledgeable (Minako, Ichiro, and Keiko). They brought us to a great range of different food in Osaka, from the morning fish market to try fresh sashimi & traditional side dishes, to a famous Okonomiyaki restaurant (so delicious!), to a cute kushikatsu place. I have now tried both the sake & dessert options at the end, and both are great. The dessert was delicious, and the sake place they brought us to was a beautiful old-fashioned cellar where we got to try three different types of sake. This tour allows you to see different neighborhoods of Osaka, as well as try almost all the famous Osakan dishes, so it's a great overview of the city. Even if you're only in Osaka for one day, do this tour!

To have good connections with repeaters is one of our goals and we'd like to show them new places and have more experience and good memories. Ookini! ALL STAR OSAKA WALK

Amazing experience with Aki
We had been told great things about the “Osaka 5 Hour Foodie Tour” by a close friend Aki was very easy to communicate with and had reserved an excursion for my wife and I on fairly short notice. Aki met us at our hotel at 9:30 AM the next day and off to the fish market via metro we went. It was a great experience from start to finish. We stopped for Fugu (blowfish), we stopped into a stall that sold whale meat, we had katsu (deep fried meat and veggies), we sampled countless delicacies along the way, we played with a live octopus and we had delicious cabbage pancakes. Aki also helped us to do a bit of shopping along the way (swim goggles, and Japanese curry). It was a great way to experience Osaka and we can’t recommend the tour highly enough. All the food is included and the metro fare’s we included in our JR rail passes. Aki went above and beyond and I think the tour lasted closer to 6 hours. If you love food and have a 1/2 day in Osaka, this is a great way to spend it!

Wonderful food tour
We thoroughly enjoyed our Osaka food walking tour with Minako. There were plenty of food tasting stops and we had the opportunity to taste new foods such as raw sea urchin. The okonomiyaki lunch was very good and interesting to sit at the bbq bench and watch it being made. Another highlight was the fried food on skewers
(We chose cheeses, fish and pumpkin) sitting in the back of a 1960’s model VW Kombi van. Minako was a lovely guide, very informative and also humorous with good English. Highly recommend this tour.
