    The trip was good but not worth the amount paid for it. There were multiple attractions that we couldn’t attend due to the corona virus which is understandable, however, I feel this should have been compensated on some way. There was a lot of waiting... Show more

    Overall it was excellent but our guide was very negative about my vegan diet which I was assured wouldn't be a problem before the trip. There was also a lot of pressure to drink alcohol, which I think prople should know about in advance.
    The Dragon Trip commented on this review
    Hi Alan, it is very challenging to stick to a vegan diet in Japan as the vast majority of their favourite dishes consist of fish or traces of it. Our Adventure Leaders know all of the best spots to eat and try to consider all dietary requirements, plus... Show more

    Don’t go. Or at least wait until after the Olympics. All of the World Heritage sites are under renovation. I had this trip booked for months and the tour company didn’t bother to tell me that half the things on the itinerary were not available.
    The Dragon Trip commented on this review
    Hi Stefne, we are very sorry that some sites were closed. Only two were shut for scheduled renovation with three closed because of the recent typhoon or volcanic activity. We always monitor the situation closely, do our best to navigate these obstacles... Show more
