What Our Customers Say

Excellent tour with knowledgeable and friendly guide

Our guide, Nozomi, quickly worked out what we were interested in and told us a huge amount about not only the places we visited but also Japanese history and culture in general. She took us to a brilliant and properly Japanese lunch spot. She is a very nice person and we would thoroughly recommend the tour, especially if you have a genuine interest in understanding Japan.
