Excellent if you want to see a lot in short time. Also the last day is largely your own exploration which is nice
Great tour that is very well organized!
, Nov 2019
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! All pick ups were super prompt. Guides greeted us at every station and transferred us over. Things in Japan run like clockwork. At one point we only had around 10mins between train transfers. A guide greeted us right outside our train car upon arrival and stayed with us for the 10mins before our next train arrived! Transfers to/from hotels were a combination of riding the bus (same bus used for the main tour proper) or in some cases a taxi just for the few who needed to be transferred over. Busses were very comfortable and the guides did a great job of pointing out highlights during our journey, while also sharing personal anecdotes and providing some great relevant history for the sites we visited. There was adequate free time throughout and I never felt rushed in any manner. The meals included were really good and in good restaurants. Overall I'm extremely satisfied with the way this entire tour was organized and run. If you're looking to experience Mt Fuji, a short cruise on Lake Ashi, enjoying the beautiful sights and sounds of Kyoto and Nara in a comfortable manner with great guides I highly recommend considering this package!

MT Fuji och Kyoto
, Nov 2019
Very good trip we was so lucky to have a great weather and great tour leaders. Can recommend this trip.

Overall trip went very well. Bullet Train back to Tokyo would be better in the afternoon as would be able to see more of the country side.
Full tour

This was a very well organised tour which had to adapt because of the weather. The guide did very well doing this so that we felt we didn't miss out. We were escorted to our bullet train, and had another guide meet us when we had to change trains, we were then met at the Kyoto station and escorted to the hotel - 5 Star Service.
Wonderful tour
, Jun 2019
This was one of the highlights of our Japan holiday. Communications with the company were excellent and everything was straightforward despite the complexity of several different tours combining throughout the 3 days. The hotel in Kyoto was very good and the vehicles used were comfortable and clean. The guides were all excellent. There was a great deal of walking and no time to wander and browse, but this was inevitable, given the amount of sites that were packed in. We were not expecting to be taken back to our hotel on the last night, but we were and we were very grateful as we were happy but exhausted by then. We highly recommend this tour.
Amazing Trip!
, Mar 2019
The trip was well worth the money, especially if this is your first time traveling in Japan -the service was impeccable- the tour guides where knowledgeable and things were timed perfectly so that you can see as much as possible during your tour. Transferring to bullet train to Kyoto there was staff waiting at every stop to guide you to the transfer trains and finally to the hotel. I was absolutely amazed at the orchestration to make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible for the guest. I highly recommend - especially when traveling with Children, I had a 18, 14 and 3 year old with us and it worked out perfect!
Fitting the best in 3 days
, Dec 2018
My husband and I, and our 9 and 11 year old kids, wanted to get the most of our short stay in Japan. It would have been too difficult to do it all on our own. There is a lot of walking, but also a free day on the 3rd day before the round trip back to Tokyo.

our first visit to Japan
, Oct 2018
Our first trip to Japan including going to Kyoto, Mt. Fuji and Nara along with the bullet train. Our hotel was across the street from the Kyoto rail station and is a five minute walk to the hotel. Our room is nice, but a little to warm at night.The next day, we're off and running by bus to Mt Fuji. The clouds broke away and we were able to see the top of the mountain with snow on it. We received a free bell with a coupon, brings good luck. along the way, the road has section the plays a song to U.Lunch was next. we tried the veg menu. Very good and different for us as we are not veg eating normally. After lunch, a short ride to the boat on the river. 15 min ride. We next take the tram to the top of the mountain and a great view. Here we head off to catch the bullet train and Kyoto. Personal guides meet you at station to be sure you are on the right train and how many stops you must go. the same going back to Tokyo two days later.The next day is also a busy day. If you are not use to doing a lot of walking, it may be to much for you. We only walked into the garden, but couldn't go up and down the stairs. Next was lunch. If you are one of the late ones going in at the restaurant the line can be long. two bus loads were here and the line is not moving very fast. By the time we got our meals, we had maybe 25 to 30 mins before are going for the afternoon tour. We saw deer running wild at Nara. Our guide would hold food out to the deer and have bow to us. We opted out at the last stop. my poor feet couldn't make it anymore.We got back to the hotel around 6:30. We left around eight that morning, so it can be a long day for some, but not all. If you tire easily like I did, look into half day tours instead.The last day we meet with a friend at the train station. We checked at the hotel the best way to go to the bamboo gardens. The JR train was the best bet. At y230 per person and a fifteen minute ride. It was about fifteen minutes to walk to the gardens and the walkway is well marked. I would suggest this as place to visit. Many sights to see along here. When we got to the top of the hill, our friend walked down a path and found a tourist train that we could ride. 25 minute ride, great views of the river, trees and some fall colors starting to come in. At the second stop, you get off and walk another fifteen minutes to the JR train station. The cost Y340 is the fare back to the last stop in Kyoto. We enjoy our dinner in the train station.
Overall good

Overall trip was good, however you can’t really go inside half of the temples. Lots of walking but great scenery.
