Our tour guide Amy was fantastic! Very informative, entertaining, and took very good care of us. Although our tour day was incredibly foggy and we couldn't see Mt. Fuji at all, we still enjoyed our day! I would definitely recommend bringing snacks on the tour, as the lunch isn't fantastic. Also, you are at the 5th station for 30 minutes, and mostly at a store, so if you want to take photos make sure to hurry!
this has to be one of the best tours in tokyo the bullett train alll i can say is wow what a ride would go back to japan in a heartbeat
This trip was well worth the time and money. Very well organized. Guide was very good and even the lunch was tasty. My husband is handicapped and travelled with a motorized scooter, so we needed extra help taking the train back to the station near our hotel. We were going to take a cab from Tokyo station (where the Shinkansan train returned us to). However, our guide insisted that the we could take the train back to the Shinjuku station much more quickly and would also avoid a long and expensive taxi ride. He contacted one of the train agents on the Shinkansen during our return from the Fuji area and told her where we needed to go and the rail agents took it from there. We were met upon arrival at Tokyo station, led through the maze of platforms from the Shinkansan tracks to the tracks for our return to the Shinjuku station, and were met there and taken curbside for a taxi. The rail agent even hailed the cab for us!
Even more impressive, later that evening we received a call from the tour guide at our hotel checking that everything had gone well for us.
This tour was operated by a local operator. We also booked a couple of tours with the same company later that week while we were in Kyoto and were quite pleased with those tours as well.
We highly recommend this company.
The day started wet and dreary in Tokyo with no hope of seeing Mt Fuji. Lady Luck was on our side, by lunch time it was a clear fine day and we saw Mt Fuji all the way to the top, wonderful. The bus trip up was informative and leisurely, lunch was spectacular, the ropeway was great and the bullet train back to Tokyo was enjoyable not having been on a train that goes that fast. The tour company were very helpful as we wanted to change our pick-up point, nothing was to much trouble and everything went to plan Highly recommend this tour.
Amazing experience. Beautiful scenery. Everyone was very nice. Tour leader was especially friendly and knowledgeable. Bus driver did an excellent job avoiding some nasty traffic and returned us to our destination in a timely fashion. My only complaint is that the temperature on the bus was very inconsistent. For some reason the air conditioning vents were not blowing air with enough velocity to cool the vehicle and at some of the lower altitudes it became quite stuffy and warm.
Super great guide "Sushi". She really made the drive fun with lots of information. We were granted several good glimpses of Mt. Fugi peeking through the clouds. Nice ride on the bullet train back to Tokyo.
Very good. Unfortunately did not see much of Mt Fuji due to weather. Maybe more viewing options. Bullet train good but once again transfer back to hotel more desirable especially at end of long day. Tour guides great on both tours.
Wonderful day luky with weather beautiful view of mt.Fuji bullet train great.
A fantastic day out. We lucked-in with the weather and got some great photos of Mt Fuji. The bullet train was a tremendous experience to end the day.
This tour was great well worth the money. Got to see lots out side of Tokyo. Quiet a long time spent in the bus but all good overall
We really enjoyed this day trip. Originally we thought we could do it independently but after some research decided it would be easier to go on a tour. What a great decision. It was lovely to sit on the bus and hear all the stories and information about Tokyo and Mt Fuji from our wonderful guide. We were lucky to see the mountain without cloud. The whole day was excellent.
We had a great day! Eight of us together - Picked up from our hotel, on time. The guide was excellent, her English was very good. We saw the top of Mount Fuji as the mist cleared - The driver stopped the coach so we could all get a photo! Lunch was very good, Japanese style. We got the bullet train back to Tokyo - It was very busy, but good. Will use Viator again in another city. :-)
