Generally that was great. A bit boring coaching trip to Mt Fuji, not to much actions. A bit disappointing as we didn't see Mt Fuji because of weather conditions.
You will meet several guides as this big tour contains from several small ones (trip to Mt Fuji, Kyoto morning, Kyoto afternoon). Organization was excellent, no chance to be lost. We were staying at New Miyako Hotel - nice place, close to train station and the main point of the next day pick up tours. Highly recommend to choose it.
What we didn't like - Kyoto places (palaces, temples, shrines) are crowded and 40 people in a group is too much.
That was just wonderful. Our guide was lady named Katy, she told us so many interesting facts about Japanese history and religion. Simple words but easy to get it and remember. We also took a rickshaw ride - that was some extraordinary experience. Take it - it worth it!
If you have extra day in Tokyo, definitely go to Kamakura! If you travel with kinds, it can be a bit exhausting - you need to take several trains (local between points too). But we liked it - considered as an extra chance to see a group of Japanese students. They are funny :)
We took this tour at the fist day of our staying in Tokyo - very good to get a general idea about city. Our guide was some funny Japanese old guy called Satou with a good sense of humor ;)
I think it's a good combination of bus, walking and bay cruise tour. You don't get bored.
It's a good option for start but spent also some time just walking over the city streets to feel Japanese culture and spirit
