It was beautiful!!!! Just far frim tokyo. About 3 hrs each way. Food in the stalls were yummy. Served lunch was good too.
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.
Great experience - wish we had more time to enjoy the shrine, lake and meal. Our guide, Amy, was awesome and kept us engaged the whole time!
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.
I really enjoyed this tour--there was virtually no time pressure as everything seemed well-planned. I recommend it!
The tour was excellent. It did feel a little rushed, but the tour guide was excellent, the food served during the tour was really good. It was money well spent!
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.
Magnificent landscape. Very cold and exciting scenic views.
Highly recommended. 100 enjoyable!!
This tour is probably better in the fall so you could see the fall foliage. However, I visited in April and it is still very nice to see the shrine. The waterfall was less than spectacular. The bus dropped us off at Shinjuku at 6:30PM. The trip to Nikko was nice especially if you would like to see the countryside.
FULGENCIO A USA
A must see tour. See one of the very last temple of the shogun, well preserved and a lot of history of Japan in it. We had also a very knowledgeable English speaking tourists guide. Very nice sceneries on the way to Nikko. Highly Recommended
This trip was taken in mid-winter, and even then, it was beautiful. It is a long drive to get there, running into traffic jams to get back to Tokyo, but well worth it. Lunch was so-so.
A most wonderful day trip and well organised. We enjoyed our experience very much and the lunch was amazing, a truly Japanese experience. We took the most awesome photos of the park, temples and lake and our guide was positive, friendly and clear in his explanations and organisation for the day. We would recommend this trip because it is so interesting to leave the city and drive out into the beautiful National Park where nature abounds. Loved It.
Anne, our guide was awesome. She kept us entertained the entire bus ride to Nikko. Nikko itself was a lot of fun and definitely worth doing. The shrine was fun to explore, though there were quite a few stairs to get to the memorial itself. Lunch was also a fun experience though there wasn't much time for souvenir shopping afterwards. During winter, the lake was extremely cold and we were happy getting back on the warm bus after 5 minutes! The waterfall was beautiful too. This was our favorite tour in Japan that we did and would recommend it to others. It was nice to get away from the busyness of Tokyo.
Long day in the tour bus, however, it is a definite must see!!! Nikko national park is beautiful even in the winter, the toshogu shrine is absolutely stunning, just make sure you are wearing socks for when you have to take your shoes off in some areas, It and #39;s freezing!
Such a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend the Nikko tour as you get to really see the beauty of Japanese culture. The scenery and temples were beautiful and breathtaking. Our tour guide, Take was very informative and kept us engaged throughout the tour and had a warm personality. We saw wild monkeys that even chased one of the ladies because she got too close while we visited the waterfall and that was one of the most memorable experiences we had.
great day - scenery is spectacular especially the lake. we will go back someday
I booked a tour to Nikko to get away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, and it did not disappoint! Toshogu Shrine is a beautiful complex, followed by an excellent lunch, and even though it was very cold and windy, the visits to Lake Chuzenji and Kegon Waterfall were great!
the tour was well organized, the tour guide was very helpful and gave us all the needed information. the meal was very special and tasty.
Started off a little confusing at the pick up point / transfer bus station once the tour began though the guide and bus driver were excellent . Later in the day the rain spoiled what would have been a outstanding day . All in all a very good value with the staff that day .
