    Feedback from Clients

    Yudistira L. – 2019 Spring –
    Japanese food is excellent and good portions
    We were traveling with 3 people and we really appreciated that all hotels provided an extra bed so we could stay in the same room. The Japanese food was excellent and the portion is also right, we had great meals every day. Guide Hide speaks very good English and he is a very nice person. The sightseeing was excellent, we only would have liked a bit more time for taking pictures at a few sights.
    Edward L. – 2019 Spring –
    I was in Japan before, but this was a new and unique experience
    In 2005 I came to Japan with a different tour company, and I was happy to feel that this trip was an entirely new experience again. The guide was great, his English was good and easy to understand. The hotel rooms were a bit small but very clean and well maintained.
    Roberto S. – 2020 Spring –
    Japan comes as a package: the people, the places, the food. All is magic.
    Guide Hide has active knowledge and experience, he truly made the tour unique. I loved the sights we saw, everything I wanted to see was included. The tour was well-organized, if I have one complaint it was that it was too short!
