    The guide was helpful and friendly
    The highlight of this tour was definitely the impressive Giant Buddha, the Golden Pavillion was also breathtaking. We only had good food during the tour, and the guide was so nice that he is the main reason I will recommend this tour to my family and friends.

    Everything was wonderful except for the weather
    The hotels were all centrally located with many restaurants nearby. I appreciated that there were also usually Western food options as I’m not the most adventurous eater. The guide was amazing, and the only thing I would change if I could would be the subpar weather.
    Mei A. – 2020 Spring –
    The sakura festival in Ueno was our highlight
    It was a wonderful tour, the guide was especially excellent and we liked the sights that were included. It was very nice to be able to experience the vibrance of the sakura festival in Ueno, amazing. We were amazed by the cleanliness in Japan.
