I had a great experience from start to finish on the day of this tour on Monday,08 April 2013 !!
The Japanese guide,Yuko,had excellent knowledge of the history and geography of Japan in general and Mt.Fuji plus the surrounding areas in particular.
She was able to communicate this effectively in English and with a geat sense of humour.
If possible,please pass on my personal thanks to her for her patience in explaining the best way for me to get back to my hotel in Hachioji all the way from Shinjuku after what had been an exciting but tiring day.
Plus the weather was beautiful with not a cloud in the sky just as in your brochure !!
Kind regards from S.SHARMA (Mr) -- single traveller.
Excellent value for money. Company staff made every effort to ensure that we had a full itinerary and took great care over our comfort and safety.
Really Good day. Great tour guide who was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately due to the weather, we only got as high as the fourth station and the view wasn't great. However the tour guide kept was apologetic (although she couldn't do anything) and made alternative plans when we couldn't go on the cable car either. I learnt a lot about Japan, got to see some great scenery and had a quick, but unforgettable trip on the bullet train.
Everything was incredible!
The tour guide went way beyond expectations. The whole experience unforgettable.
Tour guide was very good, excellent at organising everyone to get them to the meeting points. Very knowledgeable and was able to use humour throughout the trip.
The bus from our hotel (Grand Prince New Takanawa) to meeting point (Hamamastcho Station) was easy and smoothly operated.
Transfers to Mount Fuji was comfortable on a nice bus.
The first stop was where lunch was available. We didn't chose to eat the Japanese meal available and went for the alacarte on offer, in all honesty it was not worth the money. But it wasn't awful or anything.
We then went onto Mt Fuji and due to the snow we could only get to phase four, the views were beautiful and it was a really nice experience being above the clouds.
We then went on from there to ride the boat on lake ashi which was really nice and offered lovely views of the volcanoe.
Once we were off the boat we went up the cable car to the top, which on a nice day would of been lovely but because of the fog we couldn't see further than 10m or so in front of us.
Once we had finished there we got back onto the bus and headed for the Shinkansen. Needless to say this was an amazing experience which got us back to our closest station Shinigawa in under 30 or so minutes.
All in all a fantastic trip, run very well and well worth the money.
Excellent, my friend and i really enjoyed.it and the.tour guide was very good.
Excellent, but very long day as we were staying at Haneda Airport hotel. Fortunately the weather broke to give us some views of Mt Fuji. The "Bullet Train" was awsome and it was really a bonus to see the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom. Thank You Viator for a great day.
Excellent guide who explained everything and made the trip very interesting.
What a brilliant trip.
It had snowed the night before, so looked beautiful. We could only go as far as base camp 1, but it was well worth it. The trip around lake Ashi was also really lovely and our Guide was brilliant, she even showed me the way and helped me in Yodobashi, a mecca for photography enthusiasts at the end of the day.
I would go again myself in a flash. It is well worth the money and the lunch at the hotel was cool too. The bento box meal was great.
If you do anything whilst you're in Tokyo, take the opportunity to do this, you won't regret it.
Very well organised. Our guide Su, was very informative, interesting and fun to be with. We had a very good day and are glad that we went on the organised tour. Anyone wanting to see Mount Fuji, Lake Ashi and return on the Bullet train, this is the best way to do it because everything is arranged for you.
This was a fantastic tour and if you only have one day to see more of Japan than Tokyo, this is well worth it. For a modest price, the transportation and driver were great, the tour guide was outstanding, and the sights were everything we hoped it would be. The weather was perfect so we were blessed from the start! I highly recommend this trip. It was go, go, go all day but if I was trying to do this on my own, I would have only experienced a fraction of what I saw and did that day. Kudos to all!
Excellent! We had a wonderful day! The food was nicely displayed and a good taste of Japan!
Great trip! We were very lucky to have great views of Mt. Fuji, which not always happens. Guide was knowledgeable and funny. Lake Ashi was wonderful, almost surreal in the mist. Lunch was ok, but it didn't change our good feeling about the whole experience.
