Well worth the experience even though we didn and #39;t see the peak of Mt Fuji (cloud/mist)
Great tour with an excellent japonese guide I cant remember the name.
Mount Fuji top was visible during a while so everything went well.
Worth every cent we paid for this tour. Sadly no view of Mt Fuji but enjoyed the cruise on lake Ashi and the ropeway up the mountain even though we only saw fog. Tour very well organised and brilliant tour guide. Highly recommended
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Mary was great. We loved every moment from the time we boarded the bus to riding the Bullet Train. Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi was the breath taking. We saw so much of Japan in one day. Highly recommend this tour!
Mt Fuji was good. Dropped off at Welcome center for view of mountain and vistas. No hiking involved. The Aokigahara forest was excellent. It's a large park. We hiked for about twenty minutes to the wind cave. Be prepared for close quarters and wear appropriate clothing and shoes.
Good variety of scenery and routes taken to Mt Fuji and return. Overall well organised and good value
Guide made the tour fantastic...especially since it was cloudy and we couldn't see Fujisan. Schedule was perfect and all timed. Meal was great too. Would travel with Viator again for sure.
Mika-San was a great guide. We were fortunate to see the mountain from many locations. It rained a bit so we left the 5th station quickly. It was very crowded so it won't have been much fun anyway. We had lunch nearby which was wonderful and perhaps the best part of the trip was Lake Ashi and Mount Hakone. We got a great view of Fuji from the top of Mt. Hakone too. The Bullet train back in was an entertaining novelty as well.
Really good tour to know Mt Fuji and escape a bit from Tokyo. Beautiful panorama and great traditional japanese lunch.
The tour was great and what we had expected based on their descriptions. The guide was very patient and very accommodating. When we reached the 5th station of mt fuji, we didnt get to see the peak since it was cloudy. But on the way back home, the skies started to clear up and we are very very grateful tp the driver im sorry i forgot his name : for stopping at a location where we got down and had our pctures taken even if we were already running late going home. Thank you sooo much and will definitely recommend this to our friends!:
VERY punctual tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide! Lunch at the amusement park in front of Fuji was great: a very authentic local lunch of tempura and shabu soup that was ready immediately upon arrival. Everything worked flawlessly and the trip back on the Shinkasen though brief was great. Only hiccup was the ticket I had, which was supposed to work on the metro, did not. The officers at the turnstile let me through once they saw the ticket, though, so all good.
Both tours (tokyo asakusa skytree; mt fuji ) was amazing! Both tour guides were great- I would recommend to anyone to take these tours for a first timer in Japan- such a beautiful country!
Everything was great from booking to the tour. Although it was a very cloudy day to view Mt. Fuji, when it cleared, our guide, Miho, asked the bus driver to pull over so we could take pictures. Everything was great.
This is by far the best value for money. The tour guide Sake San is fantastic. Gives you a great overview of Yamanashi and Mt Fuji and Hakaone areas. You cant get a bus tour with so many things tied to it...pickup from the city, Mt Fuji, Boat ride on a beautiful lake, Lift tickets to a scenic mountain, and a ride back on a Shinkansen bullet train...all for less than 150. Its amazing value. Only tip...dont spend too much time in that gift shop at Mt Fuji 5th station..as youve got only 30 min. Enjoy the view from different areas..take a small hike if u can. Trinkets can wait.
We had a long bus trip to see Mt. Fuji due to a traffic accident and had a limited time to spend in the 5th station to take pictures of Mt. Fuji. We were fortunate that we were able to see the peak of the mountain before we left and was able to take good shots. Our tour guide made sure that we were able to make it to our other scheduled tours in time. The lunch was great! The Lake Ashi boat trip was scenic though brief. The sky cable train was wonderful! To top it off we were able to take the bullet train back to Tokyo. We are glad that we chose this tour.
Our guide Ryoko was amazing! She was very knowledgable and kind. Our driver was also very thoughtful! He stopped a few times out of the way so that we could take photos of Mt Fuji as the sky cleared. I would recommend this tour, Mt Fuji is a must see!
I LOVED this tour! So great! I think only 1 negative is that you should arrive to the pick up location 30mins ahead of time to make sure you know where you are meeting the tour group. It was not entirely clear, but they wanted to meet on the 3rd floor of the Shinjuku Washington Hotel.
But other than that, I loved it! The castle, the Pirate ship, and the drive to mount Fuji-San!
This was a long but enjoyable tour. Even though the day was cloudy we had some great views of the Mt. Fuji summit. Mt. Fuji is not like the photos since much of the snow has melted and we understand that in the summer there is no snow on Mt. Fuji. Our guide was very interesting and funny and tried to give us information about the history of Japan and some of its demographics. His English was often difficult to understand but we did manage to get the gist of most of everything that he had to say. The lunch stop was at a resort and the lunch was very good Japanese cuisine. I certainly would recommend this trip but be advised that there may be traffic jams going out to Mt Fuji which may cause delays up to an hour.
Great tour, guide changed things around a bit due to the weather but worked out perfectly. Had a great view of Mt Fuji and remainder of trip was great
We loved it! Marie was an amazing tour guide, so knowledgeable, friendly and animated! I'd go again just to have her as a guide : Fujisan was amazing as was Lake Ashi, beautiful sights. Hakone was covered in cloud when we went up but it added to the mystery and made us felt like we were on top of the world. Definitely recommend this day trip!
This was a good tour and we were lucky that it was a clear morning and early afternoon, so we saw Mt. Fuji. As the day progressed, however, the clouds obscured the cable car ropeway ride entirely. The guide was excellent and really took very good care of us.
Really enjoyed this one. We had a completely clear day and were able to see Mt. Fuji all day long a rarity as we understand it. We rode by bus up to the 5th station and you are practically to the top of the mountain there. The cruise is only 30 minutes, but was fine, nothing particularly special. The lunch had a wide variety of food and even my very picky granddaughter found something she would eat. Castle was interesting.
Great guide, perfectly organized tour. The coach was comfortable and there was just the right amount of time for walking around at each location less would have been a problem though. Mt. Ashi and the Lake Cruise was very scenic. Mt. Fuji 5th station is not that scenic and was more like ticking it off the list. Lunch was good, nothing too special but very reasonable. Would recommend to everyone who wants to see sth else around Tokyo than just concrete and is on a schedule.
It was excellent. It was wonderful being taken rather than running a tour/school group. The guide was quite funny and spoke fairly good English. I learnt quite a lot of information about Mt Fuji, the area and the history of the area and Japan in general. Originally I had wanted to stay overnight but in the end decided on a one-day tour and was glad I did. It was relaxing to leave my luggage in my hotel room in Tokyo and head out for the day. The pick up was convenient and timely, although while you will need to go to the toilet before embarking on your day tour, be sure to be back before the meeting time, not right on the meeting time as the group had already been taken to the bus. Just a heads up. The lunch inclusion was also excellent and is highly recommended. A fantastic trip. Another to add to a school trip and one I am glad I did.
