This is a great tour of Nikko, you see the best of the town in one day. The tour guide was awesome and really polite.
The tour was amazing! The tour guide was fantastic, and the trip itself was very funny. The site is worth every penny, fantastic to go in autum, with that red, green, and yellow colors of the trees. The Nikko Toshoogu shrine is a world wonder itself and the imperial villa was a relaxing ending
As this was our first cultural tour of Japan it was a facinating insight into Japanese culture, history and religion. Long day but worth it . Many highlights.
The Nikko Day trip was a wonderful experience; the guide was entertaining and very thorough with her explanations. The autumn colours, the temples and palace, and waterfal that we visited were fantastic. We opted for the lunch option and were very happy (and surprised) with the quality of food and service. In all a great day!
I really enjoyed the tour. The buses were clean. The guide and bus driver were kind and helpful. The sites were great and the lunch was good. I will use Viatar again for future tours.
Excellent tour, guide was very knowledgeable and her English was excellent
Excellent tour guide from Sunrise Tours. She provided ample history of the region and its culture to fill in the gaps during the journey. She gave adequate roaming time and did not rush us too much, very clear about meeting and departure times.
Fully enjoyed our tour with Mr Hara! He is a wealth of knowledge and was very careful with me, because I can't walk so well. Went out of his way to make sure we got home ok with his instructions, by calling us at the hotel afterwards, and recommending an even better way for me to get around Tokyo! Very wonderful tour to such a beautiful place!
Wonderful tour! The tour guide narrated the entire trip up to Nikko (2.5 Hrs.) with Japanese History 101, and wove all the historical significance of Nikko into it. Nikko is colder than Tokyo by about 20 degrees, pack a shawl. We also visited the imperial palace, which was incredible! I got the best pictures of my Japan trip. Also, the bus was brand new and better than any tour bus I've seen in America. Lunch, also incredible. Do it!
An enjoyable day; although I always enjoy any visit to Japan. The day was long but for those interested in learning about the Soul of Japan then a trip to Nikko is a must do. The guide for the trip was wonderful, and provide us with sufficient information but not too much to make us switch-off. An excellent day.
Good trip, very beautiful sightseeings.
The guide was Tadashi san, a really great and passionate person. Maybe his english pronounce wasn't perfect but still he made our day very pleasant with a lot of interesting and fun informations. I will be happy to buy other trips from you in the future.
It was a wonderful trip and truly appreciated the guide's knowledge and enthusiasm. All sites visited were worth it, but I especially liked the Nikko site and wish we had more time at this site.
This was a very well organized day the scenery was beautiful and the shrine fantastic
Fabulous sites, tour guide is very knowledgeable and helpful, everything is very well organised. Highly recommended.
We decided to book a day tour to Nikko as opposed to traveling there by train and spending one or two nights. The Viator tour was the right choice. It was apparent that we (3 of us traveling together) would have spent most of our time just arranging transportation, walking miles, and studying local maps and probably requiring 2 days to cover what the tour did in one day. Our leader Mr. Takadashi was extremely knowledgable about all aspects of Japanese culture, especially economics and current affairs. And, the Japanese lunch included in our tour was excellent, one of the best in our two-week stay. I still have my origami Samurai helmet (miniature) and instructions
The tour guide was wonderful and had a wonderful sense of humor. I loved that she set the ground curtesy rules at the beginning of tour. Her english was really good and she was very knowledgeable on the different sights that we went to, even places en route, definitely made the trip very entertaining for me.
The meal was ready right when we got there, which was awesome. It was delicious, filling but not overstuffing. I loved the tour, the sights were beautiful, overall this is a very wonderful tour that I would highly recommend to anyone.
Great day out, if a little long by coach. Fantastic lunch included and stunning views
It was a wonderful trip, the temples with the woods and snow was magical. Lunch was tasty and beautifully presented. Our guide was very helpful, love to go again during warmer climate.
Excellent tour, sites, and guides, very happy. The sites selected for the tour are great.
Well done, informative, well organized, personal, and all around a great cultural exploration. Kudos to the tour guide, assistants, driver, and organizer: only the Japanese can be so thoroughly prepared, on-time, and absolutely friendly.
I would recommend this tour for everyone. We had plenty of time at each of the stops for taking photos, also the boat ride is about 25minutes. We just missed the fall foilage by about three weeks. This trip also came with a meal. Our tour guide was excellent and very helpfull for giving directions after the tour was over. loved this trip.
The tour was great and the guide, Katie, was absolutely fantastic; knowledgeable and spoke perfect English, she'd go the extra mile so we could have a great trip. I definitely recommend it.
