    We saw various places all of which were very interesting. There is not one particular place or experience that stands out over and above everything else. It was great to cover so much ground and there was a lot to do every day. Our tour leader was helpful and very knowledgeable. (more)Catherine Cassidy
    The entire trip was so awesome. Lots of exciting things to taste, see and experience. Great way to meet people who enjoy traveling as much as I do. Fantastic trip. (more)Anuschka Veckranges

    This was an excellent trip. ...Walking in the countryside - seeing parts of Japan that I would never have discovered on my own and being guided by a reliable expert.

    Memorable parts? The cherry blossom in Japan. Tips? Take an umbrella, be ready to walk a lot and have fun. Local benefits? Yes, especially the local hotels amd ryokan. Overall rating? Excellent. Very good guide (Kimi) who went beyond the vacation description, taking us on tours, and explaining the local customs. We explored other tours before booking with this company and this was best value for money. (more)Mary-Anne Rose

    Memorable parts? A painting exhibition in Hiroshima. Tips? It actually isn't that difficult getting around Japan but a few simple Japanese phrases help break the ice. Local benefits? We had very little interaction with local people and employed no local guides which was really a pity. We impacted on the environment just as much as any other tourists. Overall rating? Reasonable.
