The bus was clean and comfortable , the places we visited were interesting and the boat trip and chair lift were a bonus . Best of all was our guide who was pleasant , informative and had a good sense of humour. We have used Viator several times now and will do so in the future.
Our tour in mt fuji was awesome i like our tour guide coz its organized... Food was ok but we were able to see the whole view of mt fuji .. Which must of the day during winter it is covered with clouds. Which we are already considered lucky that day.
The guide is great, she never stop talking about the history of the country and each one of the places of the tour. Getting to Mt Fuji and to the other locations of this tour can be a bit tricky on your own, so the tour takes care of that for you which is great. Lake Ashi is wonderful and well Mt Fuji depends a lot on the weather it can be beautiful or just a great view of pure fog. Overall I highly recommended this tour.
Absolutely loved the tour. We were incredibly lucky and had beautiful weather with unbelievable views of Mt Fuji. Our whole family - 2 kids 12 and 14 loved the day and we were particularly impressed with our guide Amy. She was knowledgable, funny and made the whole experience fantastic.A must do!!
very nice tour. It takes a while to fight through traffic but once it is worth it.
Outstanding chance to sample key points in Japan in a single day's event. Guide was very personable and helpful especially at conclusion of trip to get everyone to their destination. Do not miss the bullet train option as it is a first class conclusion of the day. 1st time traveler to Japan. CC
Great trip which my family of 5 enjoyed! The pick up was punctual and our tour guide spoke good English. The tour covered quite a bit for a one day trip. We wouldn't possibly be able to do that on our own though we really wish we had more time in each area of attraction. We only had half an hr on mount fuji itself to take photos and similar at other points of attraction. Lunch included a Japanese bento set consisting a variety of Japanese items like rice, sashimi, tempura, udon, miso soup etc. Weather on Mt Fuji was minus 1 deg C in early December...considered cold for someone who comes from a country which is practically summer throughout. Do bring your winter clothing. Also, do remember to bring some sweets or take motion sickness pills if u are prone to motion sickness. My children were not used to the long bus journey up and down were a bit nauseous towards the end of the bus journey. That aside, we enjoyed our trip.
Tour guide was able to fill us in with a lot of information. Good lunch. Enjoyed the cruise and cable car ride. Good view of Mt Fuji.
The tour was great. The guide Hari was very knowledgable and spoke good English and gave us lots of useful information throughout the tour. Would thoroughly recommend!
Great Tour with many great views and lots of information about Mt. Fuji and the surrounding areas. The Bullet Train experience was also something great which we had never done before.
All-in-all a great itinerary with a lot to see.
This trip was AMAZING! We had "Mr. Fish" as our guide -- he was extremely courteous and knowledgeable about everything we saw from Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal to Mt. Fuji to Hokone! I will admit, the bus ride was LOOOOONG, but the seats were comfortable, and we got to see a lot more of the countryside that way then simply riding the train. The views of Mt. Fuji were GLORIOUS! She came out of hiding the day we came to visit her. The bullet train was a bucket-list experience for me as well! Thanks for a great trip! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I've got to say our trip to Mt Fuji arranged through Viator was amazing, simply awesome. Our tour guide Taki (hope I've spelt his name correctly) was wonderful in every respect. Had a few challenges linking up with the tour which started at 9am from the Bus station but aprt from that it was 10 out of 10. We have traveled all over the world and participated in many tours but this one was the best organized, the best guided and the best value by far.
perfect experience. the process of the tour is very organized. tour guide is very very helpful. he helped ALL participants in going back to the respective hotels from the shinkansen ride, to tokyo station to respective train going home to hotels. the tour guide should be given a reward by the company. the tour was successful mainly because of the tour guide. tour guide is excellent in his job and was even able to handle a difficult customer who happens to be uncooperative and unreasonable on his requests. 5 stars to the very good tour guide.
Great experience because of a very informative and resourceful tour guide. Enjoyed the majestic view of Mount Fuji at the 5th station and by the lake. Shinkansen train is another exciting highlight of the tour.
Fantastic day out. Although it took a little while to find the coach station (arrive in plenty of time) the organisation once we arrived was brilliant, and we were soon whisked off on our bus towards Fuji. Our guide, Take, was funny and engaging and knowledgeable - telling us about lots of things which would have passed us by if we'd been on our own. Views from the 5th Station at Fuji were excellent, the boat ride was cold but pretty and the sunset over Hakone was absolutely stunning - we've got some great photos! On the downside, we weren't much of a fan of the food... it was a bit fish-heavy. But then, that probably tells you more that we don't like traditional Japanese food much! Brilliant to have our first Shinkansen experience with a guide - made it much easier when we did our own train travel afterwards. Great trip, thanks!
It was a fantastic experience! I felt the organizer's concern over our safety when they cancelled our Lake Ashi cruise due to bad weather condition. But the moment the weather changed, they immediately informed us that everything will proceed as per schedule! That was really a well applauded announcement.
Very knowledgeable and well organized guide, good food with breathtaking view and locations.
Nuestro viaje fue fabuloso...mas de lo que esperábamos, fue un pequeño viaje pero estuvo muy bien diseñado para que nos divirtiéramos mucho, nuestra guía fue muy profesional nos aclaro todas nuestras dudas ... Primero visitamos la gran montaña Fuji y luego un paseo por el lago, después el teleférico y nuestro regreso en el Tren Bala...todo fue increíble.
