Alternatively, meet at a central landmark or intersection to start your walking tour. Venture beyond the usual tourist sites and discover places you would never read about in the guidebooks. Avail of an itinerary that can be tailored to your interests and specific needs. Ride on the public transportation system, at your own expense, if you prefer. Chat with your guide about life in the city and its many traditions. Feel more confident getting around and exploring on your own by the end of your experience.

    Andrew was knowledgeable of the area and the Japanese culture. My main concern was to get acclimated of the area I was in and locating the meeting points of my future tours. Very helpful. I highly recommend hiring a private guide upon arrival, especially if you’re a solo traveler. Two hours is too short of time if you want to go to various sites. Depending on where you’re staying. I was in Umeda. Thank you Andrew for your fine hospitality!

Amazing local restaurants and street food stands plus some hints on Osaka history presented by great guide/mate are the perfect combination for a excellent night out little far behind the major touristic dotombori area. And food very nice, yes could be challenging somehow but so distant from the classic I had in mind and imdeed so satisfatory. Little piece of joy mixed with cultural shock. Totally recommended both Osaka and the tour.

The tour with Luca was great! The food was delicious and loved the stories about the lacal food and the neighbourhood. I can really recommend this tour to everybody of every age. Make sure you don't eat too much before the tour because you will get a lot of food during the tour!
