    The trip was awesome. The itinerary kept us on the move, which greatly helped with the jet lag (13 hour difference) and yet still gave us enough free time to shop and explore the different cities. Our bus driver (NG) and guide (David) were the absolute... Show more

    It was a good tour however, it was not made clear that it would be also done in Spanish. The Spaniards had no respect for the Japanese culture and quite a few were incredibly racist. If I knew about them, I wouldn't have gone to spare the headache.
