This tour is amazing and well worth the money. You will simply get to relax and enjoy your surroundings instead of rushing around. However, my main review regards Take-san, who was our guide. I left my GoPro in a shop, and then began my 40 minute bus journey to the amazing Edo Wonderland. Half way there, I realised it was missing. I contacted the tour company, and they informed me they would try their best to get it back, but it wasn't certain. Long story short, Take-san, despite being busy himself with the remaining members of the tour, retrieved my GoPro and took it to an office in Tokyo, where I received it in perfect condition. Take-san, I am not sure if you will receive this, but I want you to know you are an exceptional human being, and I cannot thank you sincerely enough for your help.

Amazing experience!! Nikko was one of the best places to visit in Tokyo. The tour was in a rush, so be prepared for sightseeing from one place to another in a flash... On the other side we spent around 3 hours in Edo Wonderland and it was so much fun! It is a little bit expensive because every activity over there was extra. The tour covers the entrance and some free shows worth it, but the rest of activities such as costumes, playing traditional Japanese instruments, writing with tint and the rest of handcraft activities were charged separately, so if you want to enjoy the full experience, take money.
Overall this is a tour were all family members can enjoy and take bunch of pictures! 3

This long tour was the best among our tours in Japan as Nagasaki, Kyoto, Ighasaki, Miyazaki and Tokushima offered by Diamond Princess cruise. The Nikko temple sightseeing was amazing as well as Edo Wonderland. However 3 hours in Edo Wonderland was too much for the activities shown. We suggest to increase more time in Nikko and less in Edo. It will be a perfect trip. Thanks

This is the best way to see the best of Nikko when you don't have much time and I still wanted to experience Edo Wonderland. Nikko was such an experience that I almost missed the bus to Edo wonderland. Yasui, our tour leader ran back down to the bus driver and held him there till I caught up. Never had a tour leader do that for me. thank you Yasui
