Huge thanks to Sam and his team! They helped us book at the very last minute and we had a great time. We saw quite a bit of Osaka, much of it through lively neighborhoods and quaint streets we likely wouldn’t have explored on our own. Our guide was informative and fun. Don’t wait, book your tour!

Absolutely the best thing I did in Osaka by far! Yūki was an incredible tour guide with an impressive knowledge of the city, its history, and had plenty of recommendations for what to do even after the tour was over. I would 100% recommend this experience if you get the chance!

Super fun to cycle a couple of hours through Osaka. Our host Mayco brought the city to life with good stories and historic backgrounds. Often illustrated with old photographs to point out the way Osaka has been changing over the century. To be recommended, thanks Mayco!

We enjoyed our bike tour with Remi. The weather was beautiful and the road cycling was not difficult.

Finding the location of the shop was perhaps the most challenging part, but we found it. Allow a little more time before the tour to find the shop just in case you need it.

We really enjoyed our half-day bike tour, and our guide Mayco made it a fun and engaging experience! We learnt some history about Osaka as well as seeing many beautiful sites. We would definitely recommend this experience, especially to anyone with limited time in Osaka wanting to see a lot of the city!

Yuki was our tour guide and he did an excellent job. He gave a lot of background info about architecture, the city, culture and language. It was a fun bike trip on very decent bikes. We would recommend it!

As first timers to Osaka this was an awesome way to see and learn about the city. The ride itself was relatively easy and flat so no problems for people of all fitness levels. We were told about the history of Osaka which was especially interesting. Our guide Yuki was very knowledgeable, eager to tell us all about Osaka and more than happy to answer any of our questions. Would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Yuki!

Great way to start the day. Maiko was super friendly & knowledgeable, and took us to a bunch of cool spots we wouldn't have otherwise seen. Do this at the beginning of your trip to Osaka to gain a bit of insider knowledge for your stay.
