    Memorable parts? It was outstanding and hard to pinpoint a single thing. Experiencing the Onsens, seeing a whole valley flowering with cherry blossom, eating lots and lots of extraordinary food. A guide who was always patient and smiling and couldn't do enough to make sure every single person got what they wanted. Walking though beautiful valleys and mountains..... I could go on and on. Tips? Carry as little as possible - all the ryokans and hotels do provide sleepwear and toiletries... (more)Ruth Patterson

    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

    Experiencing such a different culture and all things Japanese was the best. Excellent. Fumiko was a very helpful, informative and patient guide. We saw amazing temples, landscape etc. (more)Janet Barwell
    The whole thing was tremendous - felt we got a real insight into Japan today and in the past....One of the best holidays we have been on - very well planned to give a varied taste of the Japanese culture. (more)Anne Cooper
    The most memorable part of the holiday was getting a bit of an insight into the people and culture of everyday Japan by travelling on local trains and buses and staying in local inns in rural areas rather than faceless hotels. (more)Nicola Lindsey

    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? It was all fabulous! There was an ideal mix of pace and sightseeing between frenetic Tokyo, to gentle Nikko and beautiful Kyoto. Our guide Koi was so organised and helpful, her assistance in getting around really made travelling, navigating public transport or busy sightseeing spots enjoyable rather than stressful. Tips? Double check your itinerary, as it was not clear from the notes that we would have a guide on hand throughout the trip and that our travel between... (more)Lisa Watson
