    Review An effective time efficient and stress free multi-hit trip. Joyful vigorous recommendation. Good balance of activities/travelling with insider/fixer insight and free time for exploring. The lighter the bag the better, quite a bit of gentle walking and a handful of areas where stairs unavoidable. It might appeal if there was an option to choose a longer JR pass for adventures outside the tour period. I hesitated before booking a planned group trip but am really pleased I went for it. We did and saw so much and a nice side effect was getting to hang out with a great gang and very splendid tour leader. Akiko cared for our group with supremely helpful perceptive kind graceful deftness.

    Mayumi made the trip as wonderful as it was. The trip Was the perfect length for me. There was not a lot of time to rest on the trip, always on the go so that’s why I think the length was the right amount of time.

    This was a whirlwind of fun. Buses, trains, cablecars, monasteries, ryokans,and shared baths with strangers! I loved every minute of it! Mari, our CEO kept us on target with time and was a wealth of knowledge and energy. She loves what she does and it shows! I highly suggest you get to Osaka 2 or 3 nights prior because you do not spend much time there during the tour.

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Lynette12th April 2018
      I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
