    I’ve never taken a tour before in my 40 years of international travel. So I have no comparison. Our tour was very organized, was led by a cheerful and orderly guide.

    The trip overall was excellent and better than expected. Was able to learn and experience Japanese culture in a way, I would not have traveling alone. Tasted the best Japanese cuisine from every city we visited. Would definitely travel again to Japan. Did not enjoy traveling with our luggage and bags on crowded public trains. G-Adventures should make accommodations of transporting bags during short distances. Would look at other tours that provide that service, before using G-Adventures again.
