    LOVED THIS TOUR. This was my first time booking with a tour company so I was quite anxious going in as I didn't know if I'd enjoy it. But the risk paid off... The tour was well organised, made new friends and got to experience things I probably wouldn't have if I travelled alone. I recommend travelling to Japan in Sakura Season like I did, although it's slightly more expensive and busier, you won't regret it. It's beautiful! Most people in the group were solo travellers (I'd say about 70%) and everyone Australian. We stayed in 3-4 star hotels which were nice and well located, as well as two nights in a guesthouse where we slept on Tatami Matts. All travel was included - 7 day bullet train pass, and travel within each city we visited. It was a good mix of group activities and down time. Before I left, I made a list of things that I wanted to do in each city on the itinerary and managed to see quite a lot so I'd recommend planning ahead too, as it can be quite a fast paced tour at times.. (we had about 45mins at the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto which isn't a lot of time as it's huge and you can easily get lost!) Overall, I'd go this tour over and over again. Loved every minute and loved Japan even more. I think when visiting Japan for the first time, it would be crucial to do a tour as English isn't widely spoken throughout Japan!

  • March 1, 2016

    Is there an actual tour guide that takes care of everything or are you basically pointed in the right direction by a guide?

    All group trips are accompanied by one group leader. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. Geckos endeavours to provide the services of an experienced leader however, due to the seasonality of travel, rare situations may arise where your leader is new to a particular region or training other group leaders. Your leader will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. Geckos aims to support local guides who have specialized knowledge of the regions they visit.

    Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
