Yokohama: Eat Like a Local Private & Personalized Tour

Get ready for a slice of that diversity as you join one of our hosts to eat your way around Yokohama, visiting local haunts full of culinary delights.

You'll indulge in the Chinatown specialty, Annin soft cream, slurp on the best ramen in town at the Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum (more of a food court than a museum) and sample beer from a local brewery. Within 24 hours of booking, you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city's food scene so special. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do. Together with your host, you’ll visit two or three different restaurants, eateries and markets and try 6 - 8 dishes, which could be anything from the house special to the dish of the day, chosen specially for you. Your host can't wait to introduce to the many dishes that define the city's best foods – just make sure you come hungry.

Really useful for traveling round Japan and looking up information on the go. I was traveling by myself so I felt safer knowing I was connected in case I needed help or got lost. Also easy to set up and good customer service - they can send it straight to your hotel.

Everything was handled perfectly. They clarified our date of arrival to our Shibuya hotel (I was originally off by one day on the date of our arrival). The SIM card was waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived. Highly recommend. The card works in our iPhones.

Will gladly do it again and recommend this all my family and friends!

Driver was patient and courteous! Vehicle was clean! Driver knew exactly where to go. I will enroll in your service again and recommend it to all my family and friends! This is the only way to go from the airport to the hotel and back! Thank you! Franklin Lau

I gave this experience as a gift for my dad and he loved it! Nik was fantastic and took him to so many places, even if the language barrier was present it was overcome without problems!

Definitely worth it and also absolutely necessary because some don't speak English or often look through maps themselves for where and how they're going
