      The Discover Japan tour was excellent primarily thanks to our Chief Experience Officer (CEO) Ted (Tetsuji Watanabe). Most outstanding was his care of every detail of our trip which started on the day that Japan was hit by a typhoon. Other than minor... Show more

      This tour was fun, informative, and exciting. Our guide, Kiyoe Naria, was wonderful. She went over and above her responsibilities and helped make the trip a terrific experience. There was a lot of walking, which was fine for everyone on our trip, but... Show more

      Our guide was excellant and kind however the tour was slowed down considerably by having a 91 year old woman who though very good for her age but could not keep up. We had to wait for her quite a lot of the time.
      G Adventures commented on this review
      Thanks for the review Paresha. I hope I'm doing things like this when I'm 91!

      Guide was highly informative, definitely need to be ready to do lots of walking, and the caution to travel light is necessary as so much is on public trains. Got to see both normal (ie crowded) tourist areas, and some less known areas. Local knowledge... Show more
