Japan Budget Tour Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 28 customer reviews
Got to see a good range of Japan.
5 - Excellent
  • Scott Hillerby
“Japan was a place I was intimidated to travel to on my own. I'm so happy I found this trip! I would not have been able to plan something on my own that flowed so easy from one place to the other! From the secluded mountain region to bustling streets in Tokyo, I feel like I got to see a good range of Japan. The food was also delicious.”
Perfect for me
5 - Excellent
  • Dennis Laehn
“The group leader was very good and we were able to experience all the places well with little explanations/suggestions, which was exactly the right thing for me. If you expect to get every detail of every place like a museum tour, you may want to choose another option. However, after we had explored independently, the guide was able to answer most of the questions that arose.”
Really enjoyed it
5 - Excellent
  • Sean Alexander Richards
“This was my first solo holiday and I really enjoyed my time on the trip, hit all the hot spots of Japan with enough free time every day to look around and take it all in. The food and entertainment suggestions provided by our guide Ricardo were excellent but the free time in the evening also allowed us to explore our own options. Ricardo was a great guide, knowledgeable and fun and was helpful to have around for any language barriers. The travel on public transport was easy enough, however, There is A LOT of walking, so bring some comfy shoes! All in all, a great experience for anyone's first time to Japan!”
