This tour was a fantastic introduction to Japan - the culture, gardens, food and clock work efficiency of the country can be appreciated with the help of your wonderful tour guides.
Very professional and personable tour
Very professional and personable tour guides and excellent transport arrangements. Hotels well positioned in each city and very high quality choice of meals.
An excellent well-balanced tour
I found the Discover Japan tour to be an excellent well-balanced tour ranging from magnificent sight-seeing to cultural experiences such as the Ryokan stay and Japanese food, gardens and religions. I particularly appreciated that many of the hotels were conveniently located near railway stations so that we were able to walk to our accommodation.
Thank you for thinking of us
This tour was excellent. The flights were good and the seats you arranged were fine. We were very happy with the way the tour was organised in every respect. We were met at the airport by our guide and taken to our hotel, and everything was well organised and flowed beautifully. Great hotels, good food, sightseeing was well organised and we very much enjoyed the trains.Thank you for looking after us and we have been recommending you and the tour to anyone who will listen. Hope to deal with you again in the future.
