It's a winning combination of spectacular scenery, historical sites and Shinkansen train excitement. The flexible travel and accommodation options make this highly detailed tour even more appealing.
We could not fault the organisation of this tour nor the efficiently and knowledge of all the tour guides. Even when changing trains at Nagoya from one side of a platform to the other a tour guide was on the platform to assist us. The hotel in Kyoto was superb and we saw everything we wishes to see. We wiill certainly use Viator again in the future. Well done!
Great guides, good historical and local area information between stops, clear instructions and all transfers were seamless and excellently organised.
This was a fantastic trip! Very well organised with well trained, knowledgeable guides! I would definitely recommend it. Be advised however, if you've been dreaming of seeing Mt Fuji your whole life avoid going during the summer. It's very unlikely that the mountain will be visible. Go in winter when the air is cooler and there is less cloud. The guides cannot control the weather!
Simply excellent !
Outstanding service and customer care. Well organized and very punctual. Despite the rain and mist, It was very enjoyable.
Great tour when you have a limited time in Tokyo and Japan. Both guides Mickey and Psycho were very friendly and informative. All aspects of the journeys were fully taken care of.
This was a very well organised tour from start to finish.

Enjoyed different views of Mt Fuji, from the drive up, to the 5th station, as well as from the lake. Weather was a touch windy/cloudy but we were still able to get glimpses/photos of the peak. The rail to Kyoto had transfers in it, but a guide met us at each stop to get us through the transfers. Late night into Kyoto, so make sure you pick up dinner before getting on the Train - To eat on the train. We stayed at the New Miyako Hotel, which is conveniently located across the street from the Kyoto station. So, after we arrived, a guide met us and walked us over to check into the Hotel. (Other tour members were staying at the alternate hotels, and they were taken to those via Taxi). The Hotel Room was recently renovated, so, was clean and comfortable. Although it's just for the night, then off to an early morning for the Kyoto tour, which meets at the Hotel Lobby. The Kyoto tour covered a lot of traditional/historical sites, and the tour guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Then another train ride back to Tokyo, where we were dropped off at our Hotel there. All in all a good taste of Traditional and Historical Japan. Definitely recommend it.
It was fantastic, despite the heat we were still very much enjoying ourselves, all the tour guides we engaged in the entire trip were excellent, will definitely book in with this tour company again.
Honestly so much better then I could have imagined. This was my first time to Japan and travelling solo I was a little unsure and worried, however there was no need for worry as everything was taken care off. There was somebody to help every step of the way from waiting with me and making sure I caught the right train and escorting me to awaiting cars. All transfers were taken care of. Very well organized tour and ran to schedule, all of the staff were nice and had good sense of humor which made the tour a lot of fun. The only down side was we didn't make it to the 5th station as the heavy snow had blocked the road. Highly recommended
