The tour was amazing! My family and I had a blast during the tour. One of the best features of the tour would have to be the flexibility. The tour guides accommodate to you extremely well and know the best food places during lunch. They try their best to help you even after the tour is finished and give so much free time to spend in the areas you decided to go to. We certainly would not have able to navigate Japan as efficiently without them.
