    5.0 - Excellent

    The cultural aspect of the tour was excellent. I would have been happy with even more and a few fewer temples/shrines. Accommodations, transportation, and food were excellent. Special dinners were disappointing because two of the three were buffets, which don't promote getting to know your fellow travelers (also, we didn't have name tags) and none of the three had any special activity such as a speaker or music or entertainment. This tour had a full schedule with considerable walking and stair climbing, and limited free time - which was fine with me. I definitely feel like I got my money's worth. Our guide was very knowledgeable, well organized, very helpful, and spoke English quite well.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Will I receive a full refund if you are not able to confirm my travel plans for this reservation?

      It generally takes 2 to 3 business days to receive a response as all hotels and transport suppliers need to be contacted. If space is available, you'll be booked and confirmed on the tour, if space is not available, then you will be issued a full refund.

    • Are there any optional excursions available on this trip?

      All listed activities are included in the price and you will see in the trip notes there are currently no optional excursions listed, which means great value for money. This is subject to change and availability.

    • How do we travel around Japan?

      You will be travelling via private coach and train. The average travel time varies from day to day and can be dependant on traffic - but your guide will ensure there are driving breaks every 2 hours at a minimum and that you are comfortable and breaking up the driving distances. The longest drive day is from Mt Fuji to Takysama via the Alps, and even this drive takes a maximum 5 hours if you drive straight there - you will be stopping to sightsee on the way, so no super long drive days.

    • Carlos4th June 2018
      Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
