I had an excellent time during my brief stay in Osaka. My tour guide, Kohei, was very friendly and accommodating. Coincidentally, the other members of the tour group were also Bay Area, California natives making the experience more intimate and enjoyable. We all enjoyed the best cuisine Osaka had to offer as well as the sights and sounds of Namba nightlife. I highly recommend it if you’re in town for a short time and open to adventurous dining.

Had a great time. Miori was very knowledgeable and friendly. Got to experience a number of different style bars, some of which I would never have found otherwise. Recommended for a solo traveler or small group looking to hang out with some friendly people and have a great night.

I signed up for a group tour with my parents and girlfriend. It turned out that no other groups signed up for our time so we lucked out with a private tour. Aya was great. She was really informative. I would recommended this to anyone visiting Osaka. It was the highlight of our Osaka trip.

It was great that we didn't have to think about planning and researching the places atleast for one night. We could rely on their recommendations and weren't disappointed.

A friend and I went to a bar hopping tour with Takashi last December in Osaka. It was definitely a highlight of our trip. Takashi was a great, interesting and relatable host who I highly recommend. Thank you to Takashi and Magical Tour for a great time - hope you are doing okay during this difficult time.
