    The beautiful Himeji Castle floating above you on the horizon when walking towards it from the station. Hiroshima was very moving. (more)Yasmin Dastur
    There were many `most memorable“things such as the autumn colours, the gardens, the Japanese people, the food, the variety you offered on this tour, the numerous surprises Japan has in store by being so different, the group, the tour leader. (more)Inge Kerber
    The highlight was meeting the Japanese people - they were so friendly and provided a fabulous service, all of them doing there best to help out the 'non Japanese' speaking tourists. Also, the country was virtually 'spotlessly' clean with no litter, graffiti or the usual grime one associates with Europe. (more)Roger Bayliss

    We saw various places all of which were very interesting. There is not one particular place or experience that stands out over and above everything else. It was great to cover so much ground and there was a lot to do every day. Our tour leader was helpful and very knowledgeable. (more)Catherine Cassidy
    The entire trip was so awesome. Lots of exciting things to taste, see and experience. Great way to meet people who enjoy travelling as much as I do. Fantastic trip. (more)Anuschka Veckranges
    Really enjoyed the variety of visiting different regions of Japan e.g. busy Tokyo, tranquil Hakone, beautiful Kyoto and Nara and Kamakura. (more)Eva Jolly

    Not the best holiday we have ever been on, too many problems, Some poor hotels, Guides who weren't that knowledgeable. Japanese not too helpful. Poor signposts not many in English, (more)JULIE HARRISON
    The autumn colours were just amazing in Japan. Its a fascinating culture with so many memorable experiences, just a few spring to mind, walking the Nakesendo highway, staying at the Mitsui Garden hotel in Tokyo, the views are mind blowing from here, Geisha spotting in Kyoto...

    We particularly enjoyed Kyoto which gave a mix of city living with the cultural experiences. We visited Sanjusangendo temple which holds 1001 life sized statues... (more)Lisa Thompson
    This was an excellent trip. ...Walking in the countryside - seeing parts of Japan that I would never have discovered on my own and being guided by a reliable expert. Asuka, Dorogawa and the Mitarai Gorge were particularly memorable. Also - wonderful exotic food, charming ryokans and soothing onsens. (more)Una Dinning

    Memorable parts? The cherry blossom in Japan. Tips? Take an umbrella, be ready to walk a lot and have fun. Local benefits? Yes, especially the local hotels amd ryokan. Overall rating? Excellent. Very good guide (Kimi) who went beyond the holiday description, taking us on tours, and explaining the local customs. We explored other tours before booking with this company and this was best value for money. (more)Mary-Anne Rose

    Memorable parts? A painting exhibition in Hiroshima. Tips? It actually isn't that difficult getting around Japan but a few simple Japanese phrases help break the ice. Local benefits? 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. Overall rating? Reasonable.
