Because of the distance and traffic, we spent a lot of time on the coach, but it was worth it. The scenery is breathtaking.

Enjoyed learning about the roles Shinto and Buddhism played in Japan and #39;s history and in daily life today. All told in an interesting way.

Absolutely wonderful and breathtaking experience. No complaints other than that we were not able to see the Shinkyo Bridge in more detail.

Our Tour Guide did an excellent job of telling us ahead of time what we would be seeing, using photos to reinforce her talks. Unfortunately the weather was not the best and we could not see the Kegon Falls when we got there, but the rest of the tour was fine. The Tour Guide kept us on time and made sure no one was late getting back on the bus.

Great trip - tour company has been around for a long time so we had no issues and what they promised they delivered on. The write up is what you will doing - there are no surprises just a follow through with what is promised.

Our guide Amy was great! The only down part of this trip was rainy weather. It would be nice to have a little more free time to shop at the gift shops- that is the only critique I can offer on a otherwise wonderful trip to Nikko.
