This tour is a great value a wide range of beautiful scenery, convenient transportation, ample opportunities for souvenirs, and our guide, Tohko-san, was knowledgeable and charming. I recommend the bullet train option: It'll get you back to the city in speed an comfort, and is an experience in itself!
My entire family had a great time. We thought Mt Fuji was the highlight and that was it. But the sightseeing to Lake Ashi and Mt Komagatake were also unforgettable.
Our tour guide was very informative and went out of her way to ensure that we had a great time. We went in the rainy season so we couldn't see the whole of mount Fuji, but up past the fifth station we got some good views of the peak above the clouds. Highly recommend tour, you wont be disappointed!
This tour's description doesn't do itself justice! The guide was so considerate, trying to get us the best views possible in very changeable weather. Mt Fuji itself was playing coy the day of the tour but everything else was just amazing. The lake cruise gave excellent views of Mt Fuji and the surrounding area the Mt Komagatake Ropeway this is a cable car up the mountain was fogged over but the fog lifted and we could see everything around us. The luncheon upgrade was a cultural joy: it's absolutely not to be missed. Would have liked more time at Mt Fuji but it is very popular and it was a long day. Still have my free souvenir bear bell! :D
It was well organized. Tour guide spoke English well and very informative. Got to take lots of pictures and Japanese lunch was yummy. We went on a perfect day and there was no clouds covering the mountain. Wish we had more time shopping at the 5th station where we took pictures of mount Fuji. Bring extra food to snack on along the way and your portable charger. Also had a nice 15 minute cruise to Hakone. Took the cable car up there and saw a nice view from up top. The cable car doesn't have AC and you will be pack with others to get to the top so get a seat first or you'll end up standing all the way up there. I had fun and it was a great learning trip.
great trip, great value for money considering everything that is included. Our guide Mari did an excellent job at keeping everyone entertained and organized. A must see. The drive to Mount Fuji and the scenic views from the cruise and cable car are a can't miss.
The morning arrangements were chaos in regard to loading the buses for the various tours at the central bus depot. Firstly, I would recommend that you use a rest room prior to making your way to the bus station as the queues were long and the time short. That being the only downside, once loaded on the busses we were on our way! Marie, our tour guide, was an absolute character!! She warmly welcomed the group before setting off to the first stop. There was ample time to see the sights at each location, and plans were changed when poor weather set in we went to a different lake for the boat cup ruse because the original location was fogged over. Lunch was great. Marie ended the day with her magical entertainment as the U.S. headed back to the city. Would thoroughly recommend.
Full day tour. Guide was excellent. Lunch awesome. Highly recommend using this group.
Really nice view on the cruise. The tour guide, Marry, made the tour even better with her information and jokes. We enjoyed the ride and recommend everyone to experience it also.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide, Harry, was so informative and made the day extra special. I would definitely recommend!
Really good tour to know Mt Fuji and escape a bit from Tokyo. Beautiful panorama and great traditional japanese lunch.
This was a long but enjoyable tour. Even though the day was cloudy we had some great views of the Mt. Fuji summit. Mt. Fuji is not like the photos since much of the snow has melted and we understand that in the summer there is no snow on Mt. Fuji. Our guide was very interesting and funny and tried to give us information about the history of Japan and some of its demographics. His English was often difficult to understand but we did manage to get the gist of most of everything that he had to say. The lunch stop was at a resort and the lunch was very good Japanese cuisine. I certainly would recommend this trip but be advised that there may be traffic jams going out to Mt Fuji which may cause delays up to an hour.
Great tour, guide changed things around a bit due to the weather but worked out perfectly. Had a great view of Mt Fuji and remainder of trip was great
Great tour! Nato, our tour guide, was very informative and entertaining. It was definitely worth doing this tour.
Great guide, perfectly organized tour. The coach was comfortable and there was just the right amount of time for walking around at each location less would have been a problem though. Mt. Ashi and the Lake Cruise was very scenic. Mt. Fuji 5th station is not that scenic and was more like ticking it off the list. Lunch was good, nothing too special but very reasonable. Would recommend to everyone who wants to see sth else around Tokyo than just concrete and is on a schedule.
With one word - perfect! I was surprised with so beautiful places included in that tour. Kighly recommended :
This day was great! We had perfect views of Mt. Fuji from every stop, and the stops were spaced out very nicely so we didn't feel stuck on the bus. Going up to the top of Hakone was my favorite, as we had time to hike around and had great views of Fuji from up there. Take this trip for sure!
It was an excellent experience. The tour guide, Hiro, was very knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and loving-fun person. Our lunch was so yummy. Will absolutely book with Viator in the future. Very, very happy.
1. The trip was fabulous.
2. Having just booked some trips in China, i assumed Wrongly that there would be unnecessary stops at Pearl shops and Silk factories. But the Tour guide took us to ONLY the three spots mentioned in the brochure. Thus, we had ample time to admire the landscape and take some good photos.
3. The cruise was good, the boat was Not overly crowded and there was enough space on the deck.
4. Our guide was extremely cooperative. She was also knowledgeable.
5. We were very very very happy to see that a Vegetarian lunch had been cooked for us, at our request.
6. There is absiloutely no Hurry Hurry , it was quite moderately paced, even with two small kids, we did not face any problem
