Japan 12-Day Tour Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 12 customer reviews
An unforgettable experience
5 - Excellent
  • Diana Irimia
“This company made travelling through Japan easier, less stressful and undoubtedly more enjoyable. As Japan is definitely different in terms of culture and food from everything my sister and I have seen before, we were quite nervous at the start of our trip. Seeing the detailed itinerary (with maps and links for locations and hotels) put our nerves at ease. They are extremely knowledgeable about Japanese culture and language and has created a bespoke itinerary to match our interests. At the same time, they were always ready if anything went different from the already planned schedule. This tour definitely exceeded our expectations. Everything from planning to inside tips on where to eat was on point. Definitely recommend booking a guided tour in each city you visit, it makes a big difference and would've learned a lot more about Kyoto if we had one as was the case with the other places we visited. Thank you again for this unforgettable experience!”
Phenomenal tour
5 - Excellent
  • Jacob Wilson
“Our tour leader was absolutely phenomenal. His knowledge of the culture as well as his practical skills as a guide undoubtedly enhanced my experience in Japan in a way that can only be expressed verbally as exponentially positive. He always had a ton of energy, was always excited and engaged with what we were doing, and just genuinely made the trip so much fun. I love all things athletic and outdoor activities like hiking and climbing and our tour leader was giving me a true run for my money on all of our outdoor activities. The fact that our tour leader was also one of the best hikers and runners made the trip that much more enjoyable. Overall, amazing. No negative feedback, I had the best time of my life.”
Fell in love with Japan
5 - Excellent
  • Chelsea Jones
“Everything from Mount Fuji to the blazing lights of Tokyo was completely breathtaking! I fell in love with Japan the second we arrived! I was happy to be with such knowledgeable guides during this tour. They helped me feel comfortable in a country where I didn't speak their language. Thank you, operator!”
