This was one of the best tours I and #39;ve ever taken! Our guide, Luka, is very personable and knowledge about the sites we visited. We did so many things in one day that made the trip worthwhile. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

Absolutely brilliant! Our guide, Shinji, was exceptionally knowledgeable not just about the snow monkeys but Nagano in general. His English is superb, and his recommendations about other places in Japan to visit were spot on. The snow monkey park itself is great, and that's coming from someone visiting in the autumn. In winter it will no doubt be better.

Small group and very personal. Our tour guide was a young guy from the Netherlands, now living in Japan Shark ?. He was extremely knowledgeable and made our trip very pleasant. Negano was the highlight of our Japan tour. Thank you.

We were pleased to see the snow monkeys even though there was no snow. We spent over an hour at the monkey park. We saw the monkeys with their babies. Got some nice pictures. Our guide Sjaark was very patient when I stopped to take pictures. We also enjoyed going to the Zenkoji-Jo Temple and the explanations of the customs at the temple. We would recommend this tour.

This ended up being a private tour as we were the only ones there! And it was brilliant. Our young guide spoke perfect English, and was so knowledgeable. Provided loads of interesting facts and information during Temple visit and our Japanese lunch was extremely tasty. The highlight of course was the Snow Monkeys themselves, and what an experience it was. There wasn't any snow but plenty of monkeys running about, jumping in the spring, climbing up, over and under the bridge, scrambling up and down the surrounding hills. A 100 must do.
