Tour guide was very good, excellent at organising everyone to get them to the meeting points. Very knowledgeable and was able to use humour throughout the trip.
The bus from our hotel (Grand Prince New Takanawa) to meeting point (Hamamastcho Station) was easy and smoothly operated.
Transfers to Mount Fuji was comfortable on a nice bus.
The first stop was where lunch was available. We didn't chose to eat the Japanese meal available and went for the alacarte on offer, in all honesty it was not worth the money. But it wasn't awful or anything.
We then went onto Mt Fuji and due to the snow we could only get to phase four, the views were beautiful and it was a really nice experience being above the clouds.
We then went on from there to ride the boat on lake ashi which was really nice and offered lovely views of the volcanoe.
Once we were off the boat we went up the cable car to the top, which on a nice day would of been lovely but because of the fog we couldn't see further than 10m or so in front of us.
Once we had finished there we got back onto the bus and headed for the Shinkansen. Needless to say this was an amazing experience which got us back to our closest station Shinigawa in under 30 or so minutes.
All in all a fantastic trip, run very well and well worth the money.
The Panoramic Tokyo day tour was a fantastic way of seeing all the major sites of Tokyo in one day.
The tour guide was excellent, incredibly knowledgeable, spoke excellent English and was very good at organising everyone in the group.
On the day we did our tour it rained and was windy but this took nothing away from a brilliant day.
The meal although was small (for me anyway) was very tastey (I had the beef).
The cruise on Tokyo bay was very nice on a big boat.
At the end of the day we were in Odaiba and we asked if we could make our own way back from there, which was fine. We were very grateful for the tour guide who had given us all the information needed for us to get home using the trains. Odaiba is really nice, with loads of shops, theme park and visitor attractions to see. Including a Statue of Liberty, rainbow bridge and views of Tokyo Tower.
All in all this trip was well worth the money, we definitely recommend it.
