  • Claire's review about another Intrepid Travel tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    A great intro to Japanese food, transport systems and etiquette. A lot in a short amount of time. We had an amazing leader Hitomi who could recommend the most amazing places to eat in every city.

  • Jose Luis Valerio da Silva's review about another Intrepid Travel tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    Fascinating Tour! Excellent Guide!

  • Thomas Gorman's review about another Intrepid Travel tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    A great tour of the highlights of Japan - well paced and organised. Tour leader (Ken) was extremely enthusiastic and went above and beyond. Pack light, where slip on shoes, vegetarians might struggle but will cope (I did!).
