    4.0 - Good

    I think it was a very good trip but too many times when our luggage was sent on and we were left juggling with a rucksack for two nights and three days.

    I highly recommend this trip. Japan & it’s people are wonderful. So courteous & welcoming. Bowing is so gracious compared to shaking hands ...

    This was a well organised tour giving a good introduction to Japan. Our guide was excellent. I appreciated the stay in Hirado which is ‘a bit off the beaten track’. The highlight though is the country itself, the people and the culture.

    The tour was relatively expensive for an Explore tour however I think that probably reflects the generally higher standard of living in Japan with the associated high cost of things like accommodation and public transport.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the range of information and visits offered. To visit the Maiko was very interesting. Tea plantation was very different to those seen in Sri Lanka and India.

    Maybe a longer trip over 14 days with more time in Tokyo.I know this would be more expensive but it's a long way to go and for some people it will be their only opportunity.
