We had the pleasure of taking Japan Deluxe Tour in May and having taken many a tour before, we found this one to surpass them all. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and planned our trip so that we saw the best of Japan and were able to experience things we never could have done on our own without the guided tour.
The meals (which were my biggest concern) were absolutely fabulous, and were included in the price of the Japan tour package (very nice). Unlike other tours we have taken, this one was nicely paced and we had time to shop and enjoy the beauty of each area we visited. The hotels were absolutely top notch, and the room accommodations were far beyond our expectations. The bus, which transported us to most of our destinations was very comfortable and equipped with a speaker system which our tour guide used to educate us along the way about the sites we were about to visit, about the people and the culture of Japan, and would tell us about the things we saw along the way.
The tours were absolutely awesome and the private tea ceremony indeed was a highlight of the trip. Kimono fashion shows, river boat rides, fabulous shopping opportunities, Mount Fuji (something you have got to see!), the Giant Buddha (with all it's friendly deer),the Golden Pavilion, Shinsaibashi (a fabulous shopping district in Osaka), Japanese TV, the list doesn't stop on all the wonderful things you get to see and do. The Shinkansen ride is worth the price of the trip alone, and will make you yearn for more. What really made this tour exceptionally nice was that the tour guide took time to answer all your questions, and to help you with any transactions or other items that you needed help with. We were staying another week after the tour, and our tour guide helped us make dinner reservations, gave us advice, and even escorted us to the train station to make sure we got on the right train.
This tour group goes above and beyond, and everything is included, so you can't beat the price. If this is your first trip to Japan (like it was ours) I highly recommend this escorted tour! If you have been to Japan before, then I highly recommend this tour agency. They are easy to work with and bend over backwards to make sure that your trip to Japan is all you hoped it would be. Everyone should go to Japan at least once in their lives. But then, once you go on this Japan tour, you will be trying to figure out how and when you can come back!
