she showed us a bunch of shops and arcades to play games but not much knowledge sharing or learning like other context tours we've been on. it was definitely disappointing.
Thank you! We had such a great experience.. Aquiles was a great guide and listened to every question we had and went out of his way to make sure that we had a great day! He even pointed us in the right direction of our next adventure when our tour was over! Thank you!
The guide was very well-informed and provided interesting information. We did not enjoy the maid cafe experience, especially after the content of the tour explored the darker side of Akihabara. The guide seemed to have a relationship with the cafe and did not have to pay for food/drinks, which left us wondering if she and the cafe had an arrangement to funnel tourists through it. The cafe experience should have been presented as optional, and the cafe experience should have been fully explained before our group was taken there.
