The itinerary was packed so we had to move quickly from one place to the next, but our tour guide Hiro was very nice and polite so I didn't feel like we were being rushed excessively. His English was pretty good, and his explanations on the history/significance of Mt Fuji were easy to follow. He even gave us random facts about Japan throughout the trip, which were interesting to listen to! Apart from the great tour guide, we had a great driver too the ride was comfortable and smooth. We opted for the lunch option, and although it wasn't anything fancy, the meal was enjoyable. We got lucky and had a great view of Mt Fuji. We could only stop at the 4th Station instead of the 5th Station due to the snow-covered roads, but all in all, I would say that this day trip was worth every penny.
This was an amazing trip and I really enjoined it. I like the tour "Sunshine" and she is a very nice person. She looks after all of us nicely in the group. And I would like to recommend you to join in this wonderful one day Fuji trip and the lovely guide :)
This tour was great and lots of fun! The guide really knew her stuff about the history and area of Mt. Fuji! I would recommend this tour to anyone I knew going to Tokyo for vacation!
Fantastic tour, very accommodating throughout all the struggles of Japanese weather! The tour guide spoke fantastic English and was very insightful and funny.
It was an awesome tour. In the winter time, there is no other way to get up the mountain (obviously how far you can go is dependent on the weather) and I highly recommend this. The Lake Ashi boat tour and Tram ride also provided excellent views. Our tour guide Marie was great and very friendly.
It was a fantastic tour!!! We were very blessed with beautiful clear blue skies and we could see Mt. Fuji all the time at every angle! We highly recommend this tour because everything is all mapped out for you... we just sat back and let our bus driver and guide take us around to all the best spots! Our guide Sachiko was very caring ,kind, sweet, comical, and knowledgeable! She was attentive to our interests, answered all our questions, and made sure we returned on the correct train back to Tokyo. This tour is very well organized and we enjoyed it immensely!
I highly recommend this trip, I felt like we crammed a lot into one day. We were quite lucky with the weather as got a great view of Fuji in the morning, unfortunately, it has disappeared behind the cloud once we got to Lake Ashi. The guide, Amy, was amazing - good English, knowledgeable and very entertaining.
We were very lucky to gave such a clear crisp day and a great tour guide.
Excellent Tour! Worth every penny. Great tour guide who gave all the information about Mt. Fuji. Highly recommended this tour if you are visiting Japan and have 1 day to spare.
Very well organised from pickup at Tokyo station to termination at Odawara station.It had snowed on the previous day which meant the road to the 5th station on mount Fuji was closed to the bus but today the sky was so clear with the sun shining which was ideal for photos of Mt Fuji from the bus and viewing areas.I bought my own lunch at the midday stop which wasn't expensive and very good. The Lake Ashi cruise and Mt Komagatake cable car provide splendid opportunities for photos due to the clear sky and sunshine.My trip terminated at Odawara station as I had a shinkansen pass so returned to Tokyo on the Hikari bullet train.I would recommend this tour and company to everyone.
Japanese people are very organized. So no need for more coments. Tour is fantastic.
Perfect weather! Nice View!
Guido-san talked english perfectly and even sang for us :D
I would re-visit it again!
The whole experience was "Great" would recommend to anyone to do it!!.... The only downside was the wifi on the bus was tetchy
The day was planned to a tee, clean bus, perfect driver, Yoko the tour guide was just "great" the lunch was superb.
All in all a relaxing day full of wonderful memories of Mt Fuji..
Our first booking via viator. Was skeptical at first but overall experience was fantastic.
We were lucky to see Mt Fuji during our trip. the tour was great. Our japanese tour guide was really good. The lunch was good. It is better to get the lunch with the tour so you don't need to worry about anything. Overall, excellent trip.
The whole process was convenient from the start, taking our tags to the end, letting off at the drop off points. The guide was informative and had a cheerful disposition.
We had a great day and great view of the mountain. Our guide was also great and very kind!
This tour was fantastic. The tour guide was very informative and we were lucky to have a clear day and could see Mt Fuji at her finest. Unfortunately due to icy conditions we were unable to go up to station 5, but the view from Hokane made up for it. Absolutely loved this tour.
Fascinating tour with a wonderful tour guide. Unfortunately, shy Fuji did not make an appearance due to poor weather.
We loved this tour. The guide Sunny was fantastic. It was pretty cold by the end of the day but you really couldn't fault anything about the content of the tour. We got the bullet train back and got back about 7.30pm, the coach was a bit cramped and slow so would advise getting the train back. We saw some brilliant views of mount Fuji and met some lovely people.
Although the weather was bad, the guide and experience was good. The lunch was typical Japanese and my wife and I did not feel it was worth the money. The hotel had an Italian restaurant that would have been cheaper to eat at than what we paid.
