Honestly so much better then I could have imagined. This was my first time to Japan and travelling solo I was a little unsure and worried, however there was no need for worry as everything was taken care off. There was somebody to help every step of the way from waiting with me and making sure I caught the right train and escorting me to awaiting cars. All transfers were taken care of. Very well organized tour and ran to schedule, all of the staff were nice and had good sense of humor which made the tour a lot of fun. The only down side was we didn't make it to the 5th station as the heavy snow had blocked the road. Highly recommended

I had a GREAT time on this trip and felt like I got to do a lot and hear a lot I wouldn't have gotten had I tried to organize everything myself (which took a load off me). The tour guides were very friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Great job!
