This tour was awesome from start to end. Hakone is like Switzerland of Japan with lots of things to do and relax. We loved the Bullet Train and traditional Japanese resort in Hakone. Viator staff was knowledgeable and friendly.
This tour was amazing!
An excellent tour, exceeded our expectations. We were lucky to see the mountain so clearly, which really made the trip special and memorable. The tour is very well organised and we had a very knowledgeable and amusing guide Mr Hera. The lunch on day 1 was very good in a lovely location. If you are not sure which hotel to go for, the Kowakien Ten-yu Hotel is exceptional - it is a brand new, h hotel and the rooms are exquisite, beautifully and comfortably furnished in traditional Japanese style, including everything you need to enjoy the onsen/spa experience even kimonos to wear in the dining room, if you wish!. The private spa bath on the balcony makes it very special. The staff greet you like celebrities. The included Japanese dinner is also an experience not to miss.
Day 2 is for you to do your own thing before taking the bullet train back, with all travel included in the daily pass provided as part of the package. We used the ticket to get to the train station too - be aware that it takes about an hour to get to the mainline station using this route but the taxis are very expensive! Be aware that the return train is for a set time, although you can use the same ticket on a later train no seat reservation but not an earlier one, so if you want to be back at a certain time, then request that when you book.
Tip: if possible, try to travel light for the trip rather than have to cart around your full luggage.

Superb to see Mount Fuji, one of those places that give you a special feeling. Great guide. Lovely onsen experience, although not luxury, but still very lovely. Bullet train is an experience in itself, almost like taking a flight.
This tour was amazing!
This trip totally exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was so nice and knowledgeable, and she told us a lot of factoids about Japan and the Japanese culture on our way to Mt Fuji. Then the lunch was incredible! I was expecting a measly sandwich or something like that, but we were treated to a multicourse traditional Japanese meal in a most beautiful setting! The only two negative things I have to say about this tour are foggy weather that prevented us from seeing Mt Fuji nothing anyone could control, and feeling rushed all the time but that's typical of a tour. I highly recommend this tour!
It was a great tour, the guide is very helpful and knowledgeable. Everything went well logistically and time wise. We had a wonderful time in Mt. Fuji and specially in Hakone. Very interesting place.
The 1st day was spent touring around Mt Fuji and parts of Hakone with a guide. The 2nd day was spent on my own with an all-day pass to roam around Hakone. I stayed at Yunohana Prince Hotel with dinner and breakfast. Great food, service, and hot spring. Room was dated but clean. Pricy but luxurious
I loved this tour. The guide and the company is well organised. Managed to see mount fuji just for 5 minutes because of the weather. But i won't get that chance if I didn't book this tour. Nice timing too. If you are focusing on Onsen spa then book Hakone Kowaki-en Hotel. This is very near to the bus and train stations too. If you booked Price hotel you might be lucky enough to see the mount fuji from your garden.
