    Kyoto was our favorite and the views in Hakone are spectacular too. We would almost book this same trip again to do it all over.

    We missed the dynamic of having a guide to explain the culture, food and help out with little details along the way. Our trip went well but we would probably prefer booking a guided tour next time.

    We usually do group tours but this time we deciding to try something new. I would say that it is a different type of trip and experience but in a country like Japan, it was perfect.

FAQs

    • Can we upgrade the train pass?

      There may be options to upgrade the train pass, please contact our Travel Experts for more information.

    • Where is the meeting location?

      The meet and greet on Day 1 will be at the Tokyo Airport, and we do advise you to meet everybody there. However, if you would rather meet up at the accommodation then this can be arranged.

    • Will there be a tour guide?

      An independent tour means that the tour is unescorted and you will likely not be travelling in a group.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details 4-6 weeks before departure. Under the "What’s Included" tab on each tour page, you can find general info about the accommodations used on the tour before you book.
