Margaret Good review 7 Nov 2007
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
A painting exhibition in Hiroshima.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
It actually isn't that difficult getting around Japan but a few simple Japanese phrases help break the ice.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
We had very little interaction with local people and employed no local guides which was really a pity. We impacted on the environment just as much as any other tourists.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Dear Margaret, thank you for your comments. Sustainable tourism is a core part of our company. If you have any suggestions, comments, thoughts or ideas on how we may lessen our impact on the environment, and embrace the local culture more, we would be thrilled to hear from you. If you are so inclined, please drop us a line to discuss this further.
