    This tour could have been amazing but was totally ruined by the grumpy tour leader who created a terrible atmosphere- we all gave up asking questions as the response was typiclaly abrasive and the group members were made to feel like naughty school children. I was very unimpressed with Tucan and their communication. Tucan provided details and good information about the places we were visiting- unfortunatley the tour leader emailed this to us once we were on tour and had no way of accessing it other than on our phone- effectively useless unless you have an enormous phone. The tour leader was not familiar with the tour- giving a gallic shrug and saying "nothing to do with me" when asked questions or when we asked if we could get copies of the information sheets. The lack of interest in communication and customer care was underlined as a problem at company level. When I complained about the very poor levels of communication I was told that it was me that was the problem. In addition, the tour itinerary was changed which meant that there were two days with very early starts and a lot of travelling and meaning that we had less than 3 hours of daylight at our destination- leaving the following morning before 8am. Tucan simply said that this change was within their rights. They also suggested that my expectations were high as the tour was expensive- I never complained about the standard of the accommodation, which was all good, and indeed better than I had expected. I would not recommend Tucan.

      Unfortunately, the tour operator does not offer airport transfers in Japan and you will, therefore, have to make your own way from and to the airport.

      I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
