I highly recommend this tour. It is a great way to see sights outside of Tokyo without having to do a lot of planning or research. The tour guides were all well informed and spoke good English. First you are picked up at your hotel in Tokyo and travel with a small group by bus to Mt Fuji, where you go halfway up the mountain. There are great photo ops and a gift store. We were blessed with a very crisp clear November day. Then you will stop for lunch, which was surprisingly excellent! Then you take a ferry and a cable car up Mt Hakone, where there are great views of Mt Fuji. We were then dropped off at the Shinkansen station to travel on to Kyoto. Tour operators met us every step along the way during bus, rail, and hotel transfers. In Kyoto, the hotel was first class! The next day you are in for a whirlwind day: touring palaces in Kyoto in the morning, another great buffet lunch, then an afternoon bus ride to Nara where you will absolutely marvel at the World's Largest Bronze Buddha an eerie ancient Shinto Shrine and hundreds of deer roaming free. The following day you are free to explore Kyoto on your own, and I would highly recommend the Old City Ninenzawa district. Then at 1700 you are picked up at the hotel, back on the Shinkansen to Tokyo, and taxi'd back to your hotel. This tour was well worth the money, and when we consider all we saw and the superior service, was actually quite reasonably priced!

We enjoyed all aspects of our tour...even got to see Mt. Fuji which isn't always available. Very good tour guides entertained us.

We absolutely loved the trip! It was perfectly organised, on time, very professional and kind tour guides, they accompanied us until the very last minute we took the train back to Tokyo. We were very impressed. Would recommend to everyone!

The tour guides were great! They picked us up from the hotel, and took us to the train platform to get on. A tour guide on the next platform helped us transfer to the train to Kyoto. When we got to Kyoto station, another tour guide picked us up and got us a taxi to the hotel. The lunches were great!

We loved this trip! It was the easiest, most enjoyable way to hit places we never could have gotten to on our own. We were so grateful to our tour guides, who guided us through every step. A guide met us at every arrival point and showed us the way. Everyone we spoke to felt the same way. Thank you!
