Unfortunately the weather was not in our favour to see Mt Fuji. The views of the lake from the cable car were spectacular and the tour guide was wonderful. The bullet train to Kyoto was an experience not to be missed. Kyoto was wonderful.
Knowledgable guides, very friendly and helpful. Very well organised eg staff members on the platform to put us on the next train and very punctual. Comfortable clean buses and good choices of accommodation and places of interest to visit. Well done Viator
The tour was amazing. With limited time we had, this was what we needed. Everything was organized for us so that we don't have to stress about anything. Highly recommend. You won't get disappointed.
This was an awesome trip and great way to see a fair bit of Japan in a short time. Coach trip out of Tokyo gave a glimpse of how big the city is. The trip to, and time spent at Mt Fuji was spectacular, apparently we were blessed with really clear weather so the mountain was majestic. Day 2 took as on a Tour of Kyoto and Nara, good history day. Day 3 was a free day to explore Kyoto. Only complaint is the lateness of arrival in Kyoto on the first night, it was too late and something we were not told about. Arrival back in Tokyo night 3 was also late, but at least we were warned about that. Overall a fantastic way to experience Japan in a short timeframe.
Everything was organised extremely well and made the best of available time in Kyoto whilst giving you your own time to explore. Pick up and drop off at hotel was a real bonus. The tour company took care of everything and travel arrangements went like clockwork. We had never done an organised tour before but would thoroughly recommend this one to anybody visiting Japan for the first time. Wonderful!
Well organized. For the experienced and the novice in international travel equally interesting. Such good tour guides.
Awesome tour, so well organised it was impossible to get lost or late. We were able to see some great scenery. We couldn't see Mt Fuji since it was too cloudy (in autumn they say the sky is heavy, the clouds come down and so, you can't see) but hey, we were in the clouds and we took some scary picturse which are nice too. My favorite place was Nara, the buddhas and deers were incredible. By the way, the deers bow to you if you feed them just like people thanking you, amazing. The guides speak engrish but are so nice that you don't care. Try to seat in the front row, it's more enjoyable and you will understand them more easily. Thank you !!! We took good pictures and also thanks to viator, it was incredible.
Had a guide at every step. The stops were amazing and food provided was excellent. Wouldn't change one thing about it.
Excellently organized, knowledgeable guide, interesting sites.
This was an exceptional tour and great value for money. The tour guides were brilliant and very informative and attentive. We were very well looked after and there was even a representative from teh company to help us change trains. I would highly recommend this trip
The arrangement of the transportation was excellent, and the included lunches were very tasty. Our tour guides were very polite. Highly recommend visitors to go with this tour!
A very well organised tour of various shrines, temples and the sights of Kyoto, Nara and of course not forgetting Mount Fuji and Lake Ashi. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and being allowed on the bullet train not just once, but twice. Brilliant, well organised!
We had a very good experience. We were always met by a representative and taken to where we wanted to go.Everyone was very pleasent
Very happy experience.
Tip top services specially given by every tour guides.
Very details explanation in every transit.
Thanks very much.
We had a lot of fun on this tour. My favourite part was seeing Mt Fuji for the first time. That morning it had been raining and cloudy in Tokyo but by the time we arrived the clouds had parted and we got a magnificent view of the mountain. We only got to the first station but the view was amazing from there. The rest of the tour was really good too, the tour guides (Amy and Yuki) were very friendly and informative. The temples/shrines, boat cruise, gondola ride and the bullet train rides were definitely a highlight. As well as driving through the hills and seeing different colour trees and pink cherry blossom spots strategically placed amongst the green and red trees. Just beautiful. I would definitely recommend this tour to any of my friends!
Tour was extremely good.tour guides are superb.very punctual.value for money.
Everything about this trip was outstanding. The staff made sure we were accompanied every step of the way, including platform transfers on the Shinkansen. If you're looking to get out of Tokyo and see more of Japan, this is the way to go.
Outstanding! The most organised tour we have ever been on. Everything ran like clockwork. V knowledgeable guides. Interesting varied itinerary and a great way to get a flavour of Japan outside of Tokyo. Quality of hotel surpassed our expectations and added to the enjoyment.
Long days but excellent and well worth it. The organisation was excellent and no issues encountered with good guides.
Perfect tour and organization. Every thing was as expected if no better.
excellent tour would highly recommend. Staff very informative and helpful even taking you to train station and making sure you got on right train. If going in summer weather is extreamly hot high 30s,
The tour was incredibly organized and event-filled. There was someone guiding us each step along the way. The hotel in Kyoto was awesome and the location couldn't be more convenient. We were so happy that we chose to use this travel service.
We enjoyed the hospitality and organization of this tour. My husband and I travelled with 2 children (1 and 3 y/o). We were taken care of each step of the trip, enjoyed a surprise upgrade at the Hotel Okura, delicious lunches and beautiful scenery. I recommend this trip highly.
