Feedback from Clients

Young S. – 2018 Spring –
The guide was very knowledgeable
I liked the Nijo Palace in Kyoto the best, especially with the historical background that our excellent guide Hide gave us. That really brought the places we visited alive. I love Japanese history and culture and I wasn’t disappointed with the information we received.

Soran S. – 2019 Spring –
I loved the history, culture, and food of Japan
The guide gave us good explanations about the sites we visited, I feel like I learned a lot during this tour. The food was also very good, there were so many culinary treats every day. I recommend everyone to go on this tour if they want to see the highlights during spring.
Debra W. – 2019 Spring –
Thank you for such a wonderful tour, guide, driver and new friends
The absolute highlight of this tour was our attentive, informative, funny, patient, hard-working, kind, and gentle guide Hide. It was really the people who made this week amazing. The hotels were very comfortable and close to nightlife, and the food was a great variety of Western and Japanese food. I can’t recommend this tour enough!
