      Tokyo accomodation was okay but pretty low in comparison to the rest of the tours amazing standard. Not many included meals so that's the only reason it got a low rating, I didn't mind paying for my own food though. Overall the tour was great and I had... Show more

      A great way to see some of the big cities in the south of Japan. Some really great things to do and see. Ask for Yukko as a guide - she knew everything about everything
      The Dragon Trip commented on this review
      Thanks for your review. Our Adventure Leaders are all amazing but we will pass your comments on to Yukko's manager as well.

      Echo was lovely and catered to everyone’s needs. Kamakura and Kyotos’ onomyaki wasn’t so good but that was out of Echos control. Those places were expensive and just weren’t worth the cost. Again not Echos fault. Her knowledge of areas history was... Show more
