We had a street food tour with Haruka and Laura and it was outstanding. We loved the food we ate, learning about the history and customs, and seeing various spots! It was one of our favorite parts of our trip and our guides were extremely friendly and gracious. Definitely recommend!!!

Monkey Kart is very well-run! Fun, safe, and unforgettable! Our guide was Satar. He very clearly knew the roads, traffic light times, etc. He also took many photos of us and kept a good mood. 10/10 this was an awesome experience!

Excellent. Provided costumes and gloves since it was winter. Really cool looking go karts. Knew the route well so made driving safe and enjoyable.

The experience was lots of fun. Guide was funny and we enjoyed seeing Tokyo while driving the go carts.
