    I really enjoyed the tour. Mayumi was amazing! She helped me catch up with the group after they had already left Osaka (due to a missed connection flight). I even got on the wrong bullet train but made my way back to the group (that was a fun experience).... Read more

    We had a great guide and group of people. I had been skeptical about group tours before but if they are like the one I did then no problems.

    Mayumi was excellent. But trip was far too strenuous for us. It says 8-80 year olds. No more like 50 only. We walked at least 4 hours each day. Also accommodation was poor in most hotels. Toldxwe would not sleep on floor at Buddhist temple but we... Read more

    The real issue with this tour is that it really is beyond the capacities of anybody with fitness issues. A minimum of 4hrs walking each day would be hard for the average 70 yr old. Also extra costs as we had to send bags at our cost to forward hotels as it... Read more

    To clarify, I did not take this tour but needed to fill out something to make a comment. I wanted to comment on their policy regarding the non-refundable deposit. I paid $250 deposit for a tour in March. I made it 6 months before the tour was supposed to... Read more

    Thanks for the review. Apprecite the frustrations, and to add context from our side we do incur costs when the booking is made which is why the depsoit is non refundable. Rather than keeping it, we do allow your deposit to be a Lifetime Deposit that can be used toward a future trip with us. You also have the options of gifting it to a family member or friend, or converting it to a charitable donation to Planeterra. Please reach out to 'experience@gadventures.com' if this is something you would like to pursue.
