We were a little concerned about the time traveling when we read the reviews, but we shouldnt have been... the trip was well alanced and was truly amazing.... It absolutely helped that Mt. Fuji was cloud free all day !! Our tour guide was excellent too. The views were brilliant from everywhere.... the bus, from the visitors center, from 5th station, for the boat and then the top of the volcano after a cable car ride... The latter being spectacular. Overall really good value for money to see one of the wonders of the world.
Fabulous, well-organized tour to see Mt Fuji. Our tour guide Takei, was outstanding, charming and funny! He provided tons of information about Japan, Tokyo, Mt Fuji and the surrounding areas. We were also informed well ahead of time of any tour changes due to weather or traffic. Bus driver was superb and friendly too. The Japanese lunch was delightful as well, in a pretty setting. Overall, a great value.
Tour was very nice and our tour leader was very knowledgable and shared lots of really great cultural information. She did a great job and looked like she enjoyed what she was doing. Very enthusiastic!
Only negative was our tour started 20 minutes late. Don't know why as we all sat in bus for that whole time.
Thank you very much! Your company is very good and made the whole experience pain free!!!
Great tour. The guide is flexible and maximise the opportunity for us to see Mt Fuji. It is a cloudy day and the guide gets us up the mountain to see mt fuji just in time before the weather changed and the road closed. Highly recommended.
Great tour! The tour guide was amazing! Totally worth the price.
If you have short time to visit Japan, I recommend this tour. You will be able to see Japan's icon from different views.
The tour was very well organised and we particularly like our Tour Guide. He called himself Harry and was a very funny but informative Guide.
Very good day. Excellent tour guide, Mariko. All went very well, good included lunch and great scenery.
The trip was incredible and very informational. The tour guides were very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is visiting Japan. Thank you so much for the experience and fun.
you get more what you paid for for this tour. We were very lucky to see Mt. Fuji without fogs and clouds. The Lake Ashi and Komagatake Ropeway gave us a panoramic view of the adjacent mountain ranges. The lunch at the Highland Hotel and Resort is awesome. :)
Despite disappointing weather we had a great time. Our guide, Harry, did a great job.
Absolutely wonderful, the best tour I have ever been on, hands down. Our tour guide, Yoko, was very knowledgable and interesting to listen to. I enjoyed the stories and facts she shared with us on the bus and the freedom we had when off the bus. The Japanese bento lunch was delicious. Although we did not have much visibility of Mount Fuji, I would still label this a successful tour, if by Yoko's enthusiasm and engagement alone.
Very nice tour I sure recommend to anyone who wants to visit Mt Fuji area in good condition.
Very enjoyable tour great day, unfortunately Mt Fuji was clouded over. Would of liked the offer to be returned to hotel or bus depot, but we managed.
We had a truly wonderful day going to Mt Fuji! The pickup at the hotel was smooth and on time. From the hotel we had about a 45 minute drive through Tokyo to the bus depot, where, we boarded the bus for our tour.
Through out the whole day the tour guide gave interesting commentary and pointed out all of the important sights along the way.
I have travelled to many cities, and have taken many tours. This ranks near the top in all aspects. Great value for the money.
Well organized, beautiful places included. The lunch was good.the tour guide was awesome.
If you only do one tour in Japan, this is the one to do. A great day - interesting, varied and not something you would easily be able to organise on your own.
Had a great time, opted for the coach so we could see the countryside,had good weather so Mt Fuji visible from many areas, good day
Even though the weather wasn't that great, rain and wind..it was very cold. But our tour guide Sake made it so pleasant. It was a trip to remember. Sake definitely made a huge difference. He spoke fluent English, had a sense or humour and was flexible in what our tour involved due to weather.
We didn't know what to expect, but we were sure glad that we took this trip. The forecast was for rain in the afternoon, but we were lucky and was able to see the top of Mt. Fuji since we got there by 11:30am or so. We had lunch at the nearby hotel, and it was the typical Japanese bento and very good. Afterwards when we went to ride the boat on Lake Ashi, it began to rain. The boat was big and covered so it was no problem. We did get wet when we had to walk to the aerial cableway to ride to the top of Mt. Komagatake. We weren't lucky here since we couldn't see anything due to the rain. After a short time, we rode back and down and had time to shop. Afterwards it was time to go back down the mountain. We were supposed to go back to Tokyo by bus, but since I wasn't feeling well we took the Shinkansen so it was a quicker ride back. We did have to pay extra, but that was okay. Overall, this trip is worth it and the guide Mariko was the best! She speaks English fluently and even has a great sense of humor.

We were very lucky to see Mt Fuji on a clear day which was amazing. The day trip was well planned, the guide very informative, and the coach comfortable. We especially enjoyed the cable car ride and the lunch provide was delicious.
This tour was fantastic! I opted to do a one day trip up to Mt Fuji for the convenience and it was worth every penny! Marieko our guide was hilariously funny and not only went in detail about the Mt Fuji and Hakone area but also Japense culture and other aspects, she was great! Lunch was awesom!
