I am a fairly experienced traveler who had to go to Tokyo on business but had never been to Japan and only had one day to see it. As much as it pained me to take such a “touristy” tour - I usually do the more intimate “off the beaten path” kind of things - I decided to give it a try, knowing I would be back. I had very low expectations, so it would be hard to disappoint me. At the beginning, it was what I expected - cattle call checking in, going to other hotels to get a variety of tourists, etc. But as the day progressed, I relaxed a bit and just went with it. I did the Grand Tokyo day tour by the way, and included the lunch option. The lunch was actually fairly decent. I also met some other individuals that were in the same situation as me, and by the end of the day, we all agreed that it was time well spent - particularly the afternoon half (though our guide Hashimoto was not the friendliest or best English speaker - Jinko, our morning guide, was much better). Overall, I would recommend the tour to someone in my situation.
