    A very enjoyable tour despite two 'lost' days due to the weather and a friendly, outgoing tour group. Nagasaki was a pleasant surprise but Fukuoka was disappointing. Tour leader Charles was very helpful and attentive. I liked all the train travel.

    Some trips especially to castles were pretty heavy going, should just have been pointed out that they were steep stairs and plenty of them.

    Charles was excellent, knowledgeable, helpful and patient. At the beginning of the trip, when we were all new to the country, I would have appreciated a bit more guidance in finding the desired bus, etc.
