Japan Tour Reviews

4.5 - Excellent Based on 374 customer reviews
Discovering Myanmar Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
“This has been an outstanding holiday. We have seen some wonderful sights, heard about a delightful country and been given a real insight into life in a country facing many challenges.”
Fantastic introduction to Japan Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
“A packed and very varied two weeks from the majesty and beauty of old Kyoto, through to the traditional ryokans in the Japanese mountains and finally the hustle and bustle of downtown Tokyo. The travelling was a joy in clean, comfortable and punctual trains. The Japanese people were friendly and polite and always happy to help.
The shrines, temples and breathtaking scenery were memorable but so was enjoying traditional Japanese restaurants and being introduced to a vast selection of street food.”
Beautiful Japan Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
“I booked this trip as I wanted to be in Japan for the Autumn colours and it didn't disappoint. Mix the colour with the shrines, temples and culture of this amazing country and it made a for a great trip.”
AOP Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan

“A wonderful trip in a fabulous country”

“A thoroughly enjoyable trip from beginning to end”
Japan Ancient and Modern Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
“Good trip to get a taste of Japan.We'll definitely be going back to explore more.Apart from a day of rain,we were very lucky with the weather which was warm and sunny. The trip involves a lot of journeys by trains and it's essential that all group members are punctual. Food was varied. Hotels etc of a good standard and comfortable. The trip covers busy cities and visits to small villages.”
Japan in Blossom Time! Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
“We were incredibly lucky to visit Japan at peak blossom time and it was absolutely stunning! This trip is a well-planned and well balanced introduction to Japan, ranging from ancient temples and shrines to the buzz of downtown Tokyo, and includes visits to small, rural towns as well as modern cities. Finishing in Tokyo means you are familiar with finding your way around on Japanese trains by the time you get there. The tour packs a lot in and, although it didn't feel rushed, there are some long days and be prepared for plenty of walking.”
Japan - in nearly full bloom! Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
“Whistle-stop tour of Japan's best bits - people have asked if I'd go back - well of course I would if someone was paying my fare! Fantastic country full of culture, contrast and contradiction.”
Best holiday I've ever had Reviewed Tour: Ancient & Modern Japan
5 - Excellent
“We'd never used a tour group before but decided to give it a go for this holiday as we wanted to make sure we fit plenty in. Straight away we knew that we had made a good decision. All of the hotels and Ryokans that we stayed in were excellent. We managed to go to a lot of places and learn a lot about the areas. Having all of the technical details taken care of meant that we could really enjoy our time in Japan.
There was a good mix of places to go and things to see and although there is a lot of walking the pace is quite slow so it's not to bad. The balance between group and free time is very well struck so you can definitely fit in the things that you want to do outside of the tour.”
