Has anyone ever been on the Dynamic Tokyo Tour by Sunrise Tours? Was it worth? Is this the best way to see Tokyo or does someone else have a better suggestion?
While I%26#39;m not discouraging you from an escorted tour, it%26#39;s quite easy to see Tokyo on your own.
Thanks for the advice. I was wondering about that. Is that the same for Kyoto?
Yes. All of Japan.
Without and insulation of a tour, language barrier will be the biggest issue but that%26#39;s really how you learn about a country and its culture. It will also give you lasting memories of your trip when you get something to work.
Transportation is usually the other major concern. Japan%26#39;s public transport system is so good though that you can learn how it works in your first day or two.
So...go on your own!
I booked them on my first trip and learned a lot, however, with the amount of material on line, you should be able to duplicate the tour. If you%26#39;re the type to not read a little of the history and explore on your own, a tour may be for you.
