Overall, tour was a fun experience

Best Place Visited on the Japan Tour: Kinkakuji Temple and Todaiji Temple

Best Experience on the Japan Tour: Seeing the Cherry Blossoms everywhere!

Want to Visit again/next time: More time in Kyoto and Osaka

Overall, tour was a fun experience. Days 3, 4, and 5 felt rushed at times but we covered many sites. Tour handbook should be clearer on the overnight luggage arrangement for Kyoto and it would be good to include dinner suggestions.
Bus and driver were fine, some of the time allocated to major sites was too little. With a backup guide, may have been more efficient to have 2 groups of 16 each to make instructions and coordination easier. Note: please do not post any of my pictures on your website.
Thanks!
