  • Joey Joey

    Nice & exciting journey

    Good experience and very nice the guide

  • Charlotte Charlotte

    Worth the wait

    This was an amazing experience through tokyo. Driving is safe and streets and speed limits easy to follow. This is a must do if you're in Tokyo. Reccomend the two hours. Bring a go pro or something similar to capture it all. Or they can supply you one.
    Our tour guide was 45 minutes last to the meet up point which was disappointing and fraustrating but worth the wait

  • Taeya Taeya

    SO much fun!!!

    We did Maricar (2 hour trip) after a friend recommended it and we weren't disappointed - it was incredible!! Brilliant experience and a great way of seeing Tokyo. Special thank you to our guide who was extremely friendly and informative!

    Good fun

    Good fun. Bring glasses for eye protection. Worth wearing a face mask. As you will be breathing alit of exhaust fumes. Overall worth doing.

  • Adam Adam

    Amazing!

    Would HIGHLY recommend, there is no more unique way to check out the sights of Tokyo. Our guide was very helpful, kept us safe and the route had some absolutely gorgeous views.

    Fun Driving on the Rainbow Bridge!

    Last minute booking made by me, led to a couple of complications. Fortunately the team was very accommodating. For the price, the 2 hour drive around definitely seems like it's worth it! I would suggest though learning even a bit of geography via, Mori Tower, Tokyo Tower or Sky Tree for greater appreciation. Kart wise, though top speed is about 60-ish on the downhill and 50-ish on straights, It's got enough power to make you smile specially on bridge just red lining it! It's a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast! Thanks for the fun exp! ^_^

    Awesome novelty tour

    So much fun. For those who love MarioKart and go carts this is a must. Great tour guides making sure we are ok and having a great time. Many photo ops, and the crowds love you. Nowhere else you can drive in mario outfits on go carts in the busy streets of tokyo 😊
