The Tour organisation and guide were exellent. The weather was not so good today. The only day we had rain and cloud was the day we went to Mount Fuji. The fog was so thick we could not see our bus from 50 metres and the road to the 5th station was blocked by ice.The bus went as far as the 1st Station and we ran around in the fog. This was the luck of the draw, we enjoyed the rest of the tour, the cable car ride was fun, we didn't have lunch included but found a great restaurant on the second floor of a shop nearby and had a good feed of chicken and pork (English menus) and hot coffee. The boat ride on Lake Ashi was also weather affected but we had no complaints. The guide was great fun and we all received a gift of Mt Fuji postcards, as we didn't get to see the real thing. A good day that was only affected by the weather. Would recommend this tour on a fine day.
We are a family with 2 young children 11 and 9. The tour started with a complimentary pickup at a nearby hotel and was very well organised. Of course each attraction was packed with other tour groups, but we still had clear directions and precise times to meet our schedule and to make sure that we saw all the sites. With so many places to visit and busy traffic, time at each spot is limited. The good thing about Kyoto is that if you want to go back the next day and have a really good look at one or two of the attractions it can be easily done as they are relatively close. The included lunch was good, the kids had a different menu more suited to them. We would thoroughly recommend this tour. The guides, drivers and buses are excellent. We are so glad that we chose this tour.
