This was the best tour we have ever been on. Firstly the weather was in our favour with warm clear conditions that allowed us to view Mt Fuji from every vantage point. Even though the itinerary had to be changed because of a bike race on Mt Fuji, the tour guide (Yoko) and the tour operators made the best options available to us and we thoughly enjoyed the tour. The lake cruise was terrific. The view from the cable car to Mt Fiji was great. Seeing snow on the ground at Station 5 was exciting for us who don't have snow at home. The trip back on the Bullet Train was an experience to observe especially when waiting at the station and having express bullet trains flying past at over 200 kms per hour. The boxed lunch was the first try of genuine Japanese food and it was very appetizing. Over all the tour content, the tour guide and most of all the lovely scenery was a once in a life time event for us that we are glad we took part in. Highly recommended.
We had a great day, even though Mt Fuji covered in cloud and rain. Lake Ashi and the cable car very good. Our guide was excellent. The Bullet train back to Tokyo was a great experience.
Day was clear enough to see Mt. Fugi, but very cloudy on the gondola ride. All in all a great trip.
Wonderful tour. The tour guide was informative and charming. The transportation was comfortable and easy. The vegetarian meal was delicious according to my vegetarian sister.
We would recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see the countryside, the scenery etc. unfortunately for us the day was not good for viewing Mt Fiji and we only were able to go to the first station. The rest of the tour was excellent and the guide was excellent even to the point of enduring all people got on the correct trains when we returned to Tokyo. Great day and recommend everyone to take this tour.
The tour guide are very accommodating, well organized and very attentive for the group until the end of tour. It's so much fun and very memorable.
This tour is a must for everyone visiting Japan. We really enjoyed the day thou due to climate conditions some of the activities could not be attempted or completed to the full extent. However the parts that we saw was enough to amaze us. Well organised tour with good English speaking guides.
This was an excellent tour! Our Tour Guide Kaori (Katy) was very knowledgeable, humorous, friendly, approachable and also efficient in keeping everyone to our time-table. When we visited Mt Fuji the Mountain was cloaked in cloud. However, as we left for our next destination some of the cloud did lift so Kaori and Driver San were very accommodating in stopping to the side of road to allow us to take some wonderful photo's. I enjoyed every part of the trip, especially visiting a Shinto temple, Lake Ashi, Hakone and travelling on the Shinkansen (Bullet train) back to Tokyo city. I would highly recommend this day trip as it is very well organised from the time of pick up from the hotel and the return trip to Tokyo. Arigatogosaimus!
Excellent Tour. The guide was brilliant. Would recommend you take the lunch option as there is not much else nearby. Everything went very smooth. Thank You.
The trip was excellent. The only thing we didn't really like was the supposed Japanese lunch.
We very much enjoyed the trip to Mt Fuji. Fortunately there were enough people who met at our hotel for a bus-load so we didn't need to go to the bus station. The guide was very informative on the trip out giving interesting information about a range of topics relating to Japan. She was also a very pleasant person. Although the day was somewhat cloudy, we managed some glimpses of the top of the mountain while at the 5th station. The traditional lunch was good and the boat cruise and gondola trip also interesting. Having the option of returning on the bullet train also added in another Japanese experience. We felt that this was a very good tour that was well-managed. Thank you.
