    The guide was kind and a very fun guy
    The sights were nice places to explore, and it was especially the guide who made the tour fun, he was kind, funny, and a very good guy. The hotels were clean and well maintained. And the monkeys were so cute!

    Jonathan N. – 2019 Winter –
    This tour has it all
    We saw so many different places on this tour, I feel like we got a good overview of the middle of Japan. I was also very happy to see the snow monkeys as it looks like a place that is not so easy to reach by yourself. Guide Kazu was a brilliant addition to the tour, his explanations were easy to understand and he gave great service.
