1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Walking the old samurai trials was incredible, as well as exploring the many temples and shrines in Kyoto.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

This self guided tour was perfect if you like to be free to explore and not be tied to a group, but like to have the support and information to help you find your way around.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The hotels were all conscious of reducing environmental impact, for example one hotel offered free bottled water to guests who didn't need their room cleaned every day.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Amazing, we loved every moment.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Japan is a fascinating and exhilerating place to visit. The cultural differences are marked, and with so many great sights, both traditional and modern, there is so much to see and experience. The people are very welcoming and really do want you to have the best time possible.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take adavntage of the felxibility offered by the vacation provider but stick with their main ideas/routes. Their experience really helped.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It definitely felt that the majority of our expenditure was focused on Japanese people and businesses. In terms of the environment, Japan is a challenging place with loads of packaging, and turning down bags offered can seem a little uncomfortable sometimes. But get your own chopsticks and carry your own carry bag. Using public transport is very easy, if a little crowded in some of the interchanges.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent, stunning, huge variety of tastes, sights and experiences. We went budget but it was definitely first class!
