    The trip was completely different to what we expected but we had a great time anyway. We had no idea there would have been so much walking and as we are in early 70's found this very hard going and it is just as well we are both very fit and able to keep up. This should be made very clear on your tour so people our age are aware of it. The accommodation was average and some of the hotels were very small. Our CEO Kaoru Abera was amazing and she made the trip what it was.

    The tour covered a great deal of Japan in 7 days; I think that there should be an extra day in Hakone, which seemed to offer many interesting sights and galleries. As it was, much of the time was spent travelling.

    Overall, the trip was great. This tour gives you the full flavour of Japan, from the traditional beginnings to modern day Japan. Our tour guide, which they call your CEO (chief experience officer), was fantastic and part of this is that G Adventures only hires knowledgeable locals. The main caution is to just ensure you know what this trip is. It is an express trip, so you are constantly travelling. This means you need to pack light/efficient and expect to be on your feet a lot. Part of the experience of this trip is that you travel from city to city with the local transit/train system. This is definitely something to experience but it also means you're not always sitting in a comfy bus and you need to carry things with you. So this is not the trip for someone who is out of shape or has issues being on their feet for prolonged periods. Also, the experience definitely differs based on when you go. We went in Feb, which is winter. When planning what to pack, we only had the information on the website, which to be fair is meant to be promotional. However, when we met our CEO on the first day, she provided extremely valuable and practical information I wish we had prior to landing in Japan. One part of this trip is visiting the temples in Koyasan. It was extremely cold with snow. I live in Toronto Canada so am well prepared for these conditions. But the rest of Japan was not this cold so I didn't bring the winter gear that would have prepared me better. For example, you are constantly taking your shoes off at temples so imagine not wearing proper socks walking on wood in negative Celsius conditions. Could I have done more detailed research about this specific location? Perhaps, but then why am I paying to be on this tour? So if you book, see if you can get in touch with your specific CEO to see if you can get the more detailed and practical information before leaving for Japan.

Our tour guide, Takae Suzuki, was an absolute gem - extremely generous with her time, a great sense of fun, enthusiasm for showcasing the best her country has to offer, and flexible if fellow travellers wanted to separate from the group to do their own thing. I would recommend this tour for those short on time in Japan, to have the expertise of a local at their disposal. I also like the small group size of G Adventures tours.
