Fantastic, hotel was amazing. Guides were so knowledgeable. Whole experience was brilliant. totally recommend it. Bullet train incredible!
I finished a fantastic Tauck tour of China in Hong
Kong. I ,then went on to Tokyo to start your tour
on my own. I , did not know what to expect on this
mini tour. Your people in Japan were fantastic,
always on time, never letting me get lost and
always polite and helpful. Thank you.
We have taken tours all over the world, and the tour guides on this tour and one other that we took with the same company are the best we have ever had. We learned so much from them, and they answered all of our questions with enthusiasm and honesty.
Thoroughly enjoyable tour. Definitely a must do if you are planning to spend at least a week in Japan. The trip was well organised and ran like clockwork. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. Kyoto was the hightlight of our time in Japan, a very interesting and pretty city. The Bullet train was also a great experience.
Everything was perfect except perhaps the hotel. It was not clear for me, when I ordered, in which kind of hotel I would stay. I thought I would stay in a ryokan in Kyoto, but I had to stay in a modern hotel... nevermind, I'll be back !!!
I was fortunate and saw Mt Fuji to the top. The tour guide for Mt Fujo, Meko was thoughtful and attentive.
Excellent opportunity to visit Mt Fuji and Kyoto when on a tight schedule. Guide service was exemplary! They took such good care of us! They all spoke English and worked to provide a lovely trip. They truly cared for us during the journey and activities. The tour hotel was wonderful. We enjoyed the sights and tours tremendously. We especially appreciated the drop-off and pick-up services at our hotels and train stations.
Very well organized. Tour guides were thorough, friendly, and informative. The whole tour went off without a hitch. Guides met us at trains and escorted us to taxis. I was travelling alone with my 14 year old daughter, and we felt secure and comfortable at all times.
The tour operator really has its act together. A representative met us at each station and took us to the next train. There were absolutely no problems whatsoever.
This trip takes you very close to nature, and our guide gave us an insight into Buddhist history. Spectacular!
Our tour got changed at the last moment unfortunately due to the closure of the ropeway. We did get to go up another ropeway which was less interesting however. Mt. Fuji put on a lovely display for us though so we felt really lucky overall. This tour was arranged really well with guides meeting us at every stage along the way as planned and no hitches. Overall really glad we did it, it was a great introduction to this part of the country.
The Kyoto-Nara part of our tour was amazing! Our guide was brilliant -very knowledgeable and keen to answer all of our questions.the food however was below average.And the quantity of it inadequate for Western people. Mt fuji was not bad either -even though our guide was struggling with his english
The tour was organised meticulously, and as such ran really well. We were very lucky that the sun was out on the first day and we saw Mt Fuji in all its glory! After all the travel to Kyto and rolling to the hotel at 10pm we very tired! The second day was temple and shrine overload. Great overall.
Great trip, loved Kyoto, sadly several fellow passages struggling to get back the coach on time. The guides were very informative with a good knowledge of Japanese history and we had some great views of Mt Fuji
All in all the tour was very good. The guides were very nice and knowledgeable. The only negative point I have is: the first day was about Mount Fuji and we did not see it at all. This part of the tour doesn't make sence if the weather is bad. I think it should be canceled in case of bad weather.
This tour was great!! We learned alot of history from the tour. Everything was very well organized to the minute. We were well take care off. I recommande this toir to everyone.
I thought this was a great tour and incredibly well organised. We would never have seen so much on our own and definitely recommend this tour to others. We preferred the second day's tour of Kyoto temples, shrines and to Nara over the first day's tour of Mount Fuji and Hakone. The tour guides were all excellent.
Fantastic trip. Well worth the trip-saw so much. Loved the shrines and temples that were there. Learnt so much about the history of Kyoto and Nara. Weather dampened part of the trip but was worth it anyhow. Wished we could have had longer in Kyoto to see the night life as arrival was too late to see or do anything. Could have done with bit of extra guidance of where to perhaps see for our free day in Kyoto.
Well organised and covered all the must see sights in Kyoto.
The first thing is your third Day there is nothing to do and you need to check out hotel at 11 and they booked your ticket at 7 pm and you can not change the time cause if u wanna change you need to pay again! The second thing is the hotel never give you king or queen bed its only twins bed !
The tour was well organized and executed. The tour guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, good humored and attentive. There was quite a bit packed into this tour. We had to deal with some weather issues that prevented us from seeing Fujisan, but who can control the weather? The bus driver was excellent and a true professional driving in the mountains with plenty rain. The hand off and directions from the bus to the bullet trains couldn't have worked smoother. The greeters/direction advisers were most cheerful and helpful. The sites in Kyoto where covered at rather a brisk pace, but they were very efficient. The bus driver in Kyoto/Nara was excellent as well. The sites in Nara were covered at a more leisurely pace. Overall, a great tour conducted by wonderful people. This tour is well worth taking, but make sure you are up for a couple of days of busy traveling. Wear comfortable walking shoes (slip offs will make things a little easier). Hotel accommodations at Kyoto Hotel Okura were 4-star for Japan, 5-Star in the USA. Don't forget to keep your umbrella handy. The deer at Nara know how to get your attention if you are passing out food, so be ready for the deer to nudge you in some tender places to get your attention.
