    Our guide, Takae was fantastic. She was able to show us more if Japan than we would ever been able to see ourselves. Japan is such a special place - old and new, the people are respectful and culture and scenery is stunning.

    4.0 - Good

    We saw some fascinating sites with the added funof using the bullet train many times. Takae was an excellent guide, very well organised and efficient. If I had to find fault it would be her command of English which was difficult at times to follow. Perhaps a course in presentation skills would help her. In no way would I want to denigrate her abilities as a sweet and competent guide. We could not have negotiated our travel itinerary so easily without her.

    I loved the country of Japan and the people. The tour was made wonderful and fun by our leader and "hero", Hirono, and the other traveler's from all of the world. The food was excellent and our tour leader provided added surprises and suggestion nearly every day. I would definitely recommend this tour.

    All depends on the CEO ! 15 hours days were the norm ! Yes adding extra bits may sound great back at head office but no joke on the road . A real mystery tour guide,poor English did not help .Very little forward explanation of days events ,just dipping in ones pocket for more temples and sights !

    I had a wonderful trip to Japan and enjoyed all of the tour destinations. Hirono was our tour guide and "hero" who went above and beyond to make the trip special. I'm glad I did the 14 day tour to see as much as possible.
