Feedback from Clients

Vanessa F. – 2018 Spring – Thanks for your wonderful staff and guides! The best was the food, Mt. Fuji, and the geisha in Gion
The hotels and food were excellent and guide Hisakazu was the best! He was very attentive, knowledgeable, and very kind. The sights were very good and full of culture. I really enjoyed our tour with Mr. Kazu, if anything I wished we had a bit more time to see everything.
Dylan D. – 2019 Autumn – Overall extremely happy and satisfied with the tour, how it was planned and organized
We were very happy and satisfied with the tour, all hotels were good, the Japanese food was varied and of great quality. Guide Kazu was very good, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We liked the fact that it was a small tour group.
