The guide was excellent, and even though the weather was rainy we had a lovely day.
The tour was excellent and so was our guide. We learnt a lot about Mount Fiji, but we weren't lucky as for the weather: it was very cloudy. We weren't able to see Mount Fuji, however, the tour was worth taking. The onsen was amazing and the mall was for every taste. I highly recommend.
I had a great time with a very informative and humorous guide. One hour at the onsen is unfortunately short, I'd prefer to take an extra 30 minutes out of the shopping, but all in all, it was a great day!
We had a wonderful time! Our tour guide, Takei, was the best - very informatve, organized, charming, and funny. The barbecue lunch was great. My niece who did the onsen was ecstatic about the experience. And she also found very good bargains of lego toys at the outlets.

If you like nature that goes along with shopping, I definitely recommend this Day Trip! Although Mt. Fuji was shy enough at the 5th station, we were still able to take good photos on our descent. Delicious DIY bbq lunch. Unique Onsen Experience and Shop-running at Gotemba Outlets. Great guide Katy!
This was great. There was plenty of free time to wonder around and explore. The guide explained the bath house procedures and it was a unique cultural experience. The lunch was great and fun to prepare. Make sure to pack a coat as Mt Fuji is very very cold. Also, if you have any tattoos, you will need to cover these with a bandaid or bandage or you wont be allowed entry into the bath house.
My tour guide, Motoko Abe, deserves a standing ovation! Her English was good and she never wasted not even one minute of the trip - telling us stories about Mt Fuji, making us sing songs, and folding origami. Worth it to see Mt Fuji. Onsen was good, but do note that you have to go in naked, and the guide goes in with you. Can be quite awkward. The outlet shopping trip was ok, things are not cheaper than where I'm from, but 2 hours is good enough to go around the outlet.
The bus tour to mt fuji was amazing in itself the scenery on the way up to mt fuji was spectacular took some amazing photos ,
The Onsen was an interesting experience I had never done anything like it before definately highly recommend to do it if ur curious I felt so clean and relaxed afterward !! Had a few more hot spring experiences in osaka as well! !!! The tour guide spoke really well English and explained any questions u may have had quite thoroughly Very polite never experienced so much politeness highly recommend the tour Thankyou beb from perth australia
We were really lucky with the weather, we had an amazing view of Mt. Fuji. Lunch was good, but the view even better. Our tourguide was really sweet. They should have told us beforehand that the Onsen is naked only. 2 hours shopping was a bit on the shortside. Really nice tour!! Go to Mt. Fuji!
Everything was great except the onsen time...if it could be 1hr +1/2 to 2hrs, it would be better, with less shopping time at the outlets. Also a bit longer at the Fuji mountain, as i felt we were rushed in and rushed out without sufficient time...both at mountain and onsen. Otherwise it was a great trip! Even the tour guide sang us a song towards the end on the bus during traffic back to Tokyo.
The tour guide is very informative and helpful through out the trip. However the onsen's time is too short, maybe can lengthen the time for onsen as we are not satisfied with the onsen but we have to get ready to be back to the tour bus. But overall I will rate this tour is good!
Mt Fuji- due to the avalanche, we were not able to go to the 5th station observatory and just stayed at the 1st station :-( Nevertheless we were afforded excellent and unobstructed cuew of Fuji for the entire tor duration.
Onsen- very very relaxing
Gotemba- good buys -Seiko watches for 4,000 yen!
