Very educational. It afforded us to have various glimpses of the beautiful Himeji Castle -- from afar and up close-- and enough time to explore inside. The tour of the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge was also an exhilarating experience. Very good, efficient tour guide as well. The lunch was superb!
We had a great day at Himeji, made all the more special by our guide Tyco. She was very knowledgable, liked a laugh and interacted so well. Himeji castle is a magic place and a must see. Akashi bridge is nice but a filler really. I would just do Himeji castle.
My two daughters and I were the only people on the tour that day. Our tour guide, Gucchi, made it fun, interesting, and enjoyable. She answered our questions, kept us moving, and told us informative and interesting facts about the areas where we visited. Himeji Castle was incredible but be prepared to walk along slippery wooden floors and steep steps in your socks as you check in your shoes at the door. The gardens are extensive, beautiful and peaceful. The bridge, a modern day wonder, was quite interesting too. I'm very glad I took the tour, and if I had to spend the day in Japan with a stranger and see these sites, I'm very glad I did it with Gucchi!

A great and interesa ing place to visit and Saiko made it great With Her knowledge, patience and good explanación of everything. Have to be in good shape to support the good walking for gringa through the Himeji Castle, great place to visit. The Akashi Kaikyo Bridge something really impressive. we made a good choise.
We really enjoyed this tour - this is a smaller group, only 6 of us 2 other couples plus us, so tour quite intimate, and our guide was able to customize and explain things more in detail. Plus we only visit mainly 1 spot - Himeji Castle, so we really get to learn inside and out about the castle in depth. The Akashi Kaikyo Bridge is all right, nothing too glamorous. The lunch buffet is also quite nice - nice ambience, and enough time for us to eat, chat and mingle. Overall, I find this tour quite relaxing, not as rushed as other tours. Our guide very friendly and knowledgable. Will recommend this tour to others.
Himeji Castle is amazing but such a long queue for tickets and another long queue to enter (2 hours)!
Koko-en Garden is truly amazing...would love to come back for an autumn visit! Super tour guide who is very helpful, speaks very good English and very knowledgable!
It felt the guide was just there babysitting us. The tour title is Himeji, Koko en garden and Akashi..when I asked her about Koko en garden which we didn't visit by the way she said that was not included. Myself and another person told her that is included as per the title, her reply is that there is nothing to see there. It also felt she was always directing us towards the souvenir shops as if she is to get a commission. Not much informative tour and like I said she was mainly there with us as a babysitter as opposed to an informational tour guide.
