    This was my first tour in Japan, but I have made a number of trips with similar small group companies in other countries. I enjoyed the tour overall, and I enjoyed the company of my fellow travelers, and that of our guide Yasu, who I feel did an excellent job under difficult circumstances in dealing with some "entitled" clients. I think Bamba are new to the group travel scene, being more familiar with independent travel, and could benefit from the practice of older operators. For example there were no local guides employed to give in-depth information about our destinations. There was also some confusion about exactly what was included. Generally admissions to the places visited were not included. The Hakone Pass, which is quite expensive, was initially not included, despite being described in the itinerary. After some argument the company decided to provide it. On our last night in Tokyo we dragged our luggage about 1 km to a far inferior capsule hostel where we spent the night in crowded conditions among hordes of Western backpackers (I used to be one). I hurt my back in the awkwardly shaped capsule. Why we were moved from the original hostel I can't imagine. There were some sites I would have liked to see that we did not visit, but you can't see everything in ten days. I hope to return to Japan. We did have the wonderful good fortune to have almost perfect weather, and even better, to have the Sakura cherry blossom season arrive just as we began our tour. I do think the tour was priced too high given what some other operators offer, but at the discount I received it was good value. Thank you Bamba for an enjoyable trip.

    The tour itself was good and Japan is amazing. The reason I do not normally take tours is because they feel rushed, this one was no different but I was happy with the overview of Japan. Our guide Yasuki was awesome during difficult circumstances. We had some terrible people on our tour who were very nasty to our guide. He handled this exceptionally well. The itinerary wasn't what we stuck to exactly but I am a flexible traveler so can work with what I have. It would be nice to outline all not included costs including transfer of luggage and being without this for 2 nights. Having multiple accommodations in Tokyo is a waste of time. Find a suitable place in a central location and stick to it. Do advise people that this is not a guided tour as such. We are chaperoned around and then left with a lot of free time which I have no issue with. There was lots of complaining from people who were not happy with this or the amount of walking involved. Definitely specify that there is a lot of walking on this tour and not always flat or easy

    The accommodations in Tokyo were abominable, as they were not twin share as advertised, but 14-30 people, coed in a room. I have sent a separate email detailing all the problems in the whole trip requesting a partial refund. We did not know that it was an option to change hotels, as some guests were accommodated. This was very unfair to all on the trip.

    Overall tour was great, our guide Yasu was fantastic. There is a lot of walking so would not recommend to older people or anyone who tired easily.

The itinerary was packed full but that was exactly what we wanted - to see as much of Japan as we could in the small amount of time that we had. The only thing that I would change - and you absolutely need to - is the accomodation in capsule hostels. Save the hostels for the 25 and under crowd. Even if you upgrade to basic hotels and raise the cost of the tour a bit, you would still charge less than the competition does for the same tour. All the other accomodations were really good. All in all, it was a great tour! I would absolutely recommend this tour as a great way to see Japan. And thanks again to Yasu!
