Good food, fun facts and cycle around the city! Top notch!
Sam was a fantastic guide and conversationalist. We had enough historical info to be interesting but nothing too much! It was a highlight of our trip. The food and drinks were great! It was also refreshing just to be back in the mix and spend time with super cool people in a beautiful city enjoying good food and feeling so free riding these bikes around! What a great return from a season of weirdness!! Thanks CYCLEOSAKA for making this tour go! You rock!

Great food, great guide, and a great tour. A fabulous way to see Osaka with friendly and informative guide. We had the best Nikuman we’ve ever tried along with some other delicious Osaka cuisine. Definitely recommend this bike tour, especially to those who are only in Osaka for a short time and want to see the city’s highlights.

Billiken Heaven
Nov 2019
This was a great tour with Matt and apologies for belatedly posting this review. Directions on the meeting point were very clear and we travelled by train to our meeting point at the Tsutenkaku Tower. Just my husband and I on this tour which was well paced, a variety of great food including Korean and a wonderful way to gain a little insider knowledge about this part of Osaka. We concluded with a demonstratIon at Tower knives and then did a tour of the Tsutenkaku Tower which hosted an amazing Billiken display, we had already met a number of these happy creatures on our our ride.

Can't Recommend Enough! A great way to discover Osaka
Mar 2020
Had such a great time in our small group, our guide Mayco also was a lot of fun, very knowledgeable, informative and very helpful. Biking distance was manageable for any fitness level and the tour I was on was a nice sunny day. I would do a bike tour again (Hopefully with Mayco haha! ) but would probably try the full day Osaka tour instead of the food tour. Great food, great company and wow what a beautiful amazing city!

Lots to learn and eat along the way!

The Osaka biking food tour was definitely a highlight of our trip to Japan. Matt was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and he took us to many places that we wouldn't have even thought to go ourselves. He also had some great personal stories to share that made the whole tour feel very unique and interesting. We ended at one of my favorite sushi places that we visited in all of Japan too!

Great Food, Great Travel
Feb 2020
The tour was a lot of fun and very informative. I was with Mayko, and she was lovely to be with, very knowledgeable and fun. The biking was just enough in terms of distance, and the food was excellent wherever we went. I would highly recommend it for a first timer to Osaka or someone who's interested in Japanese food.

Great bike tour
Great tour, we had only limited time in osaka so this was a great way to sample some hidden street foods. Mat was extremely knowledgeable about the food and history and being on bikes was a great change from all the walking we had been doing

Best Oden Ever
Dec 2019
Rain was a damper but Matt was great :-) Was a little disappointed that we couldn't get on the bike, but I was thankful the tour wasn't cancelled, we rode the subway instead. Got to try the best Oden ever and visited a few memorable shops that I would never think of walking into (e.g. the Oden shop - customers inside looked a little gruff, Korean market with very authentic Korean cuisine, a knife shop - very impressed by the demonstration). Key to a fantastic tour is the guide, and Matt was fantastic. Giving us the insider's scoop to the culture, habits and day-to-day quirks (at least to non-Japanese they appear a little weird) from him spending about half his life here.
