Granger Family
Attended Tour: 7 Days Essence of Spring | Hiroshima - Cherry Blossom Seasonal Tour From Tokyo To Kyoto

  • Overall satisfaction:

Saw a lot of areas that weren't tourist attractions.

Best place visited on the tour: Todaiji Temple, Meiji, Mt. Fuji

Best experience you had in Japan: Petting deer, Shinkansen, cultural immersion

Want to visit next: More of Mt. Fuji. Add a day of hiking in place of some of the side trips.
A little more free time to investigate areas after activities might be nice. Following a day of group tours, we've enjoyed family dinners in local restaurants and finding some shops and activities. Our son took the opportunity to ride the roller coaster at Tokyo Dome and we found a small sushi spot.

They were upscale, appointed accommodations with breakfast included. It made mornings easy. The room at Hotellerie Maille-Coeur was great

2. What did you think about the food? (Taste, variety)

Very Good

We got to try a lot of different foods with American options. We enjoyed the variety.

3. Was the tour guide helpful? (Knowledge, communication, attitude)


She wrote out the daily itinerary with expected times. She encouraged guests to change bus seats to allow different viewpoints. She was very knowledgeable, informative, patient, and organized.

4. How would you rate the sightseeing spots we have visited? (Favorite place, least favorite)

Very Good

We saw a lot of typical, daily local areas that weren't tourist attractions. The guide offered a lot of information about people and daily living.
