Thank you for a wonderful tour.
I appreciate each of the tour guides and their helpfulness.
Each of them was a pleasure to be with.
I had a great time, as did my daughter and her boyfriend.
Everything went off without any problems.
Getting around Japan was easy and enjoyable.

I've been ruminating about our wonderful trip. Every
place we visited gave us memories never to be
The guides were wonderful to us and worked diligently on our behalf. We enjoyed them very much.
The accomodations were splendid and a couple were out of this world.
The sites, shows, gardens, temples, shrines, museums. galleries, markets, subways, trains, busses, and beautiful people were everything I had hoped our trip could be.
Thank you one last time for all of your help and expertise. I hope we can return to Japan someday, and will look forward to working with you again on that return trip.
Your the best!

The guides were first rate. Very knowledgable, caring and considerate. Hiroko in Tokyo was especially charming and engaging. Hiro in Kyoto was a wealth of information. Miki in Hiroshima was very caring. The tour itself was very organized. Pickup at the airport and transport for our departure was very prompt and courteous.

As I was sharing with others about our tour, I became aware our hotel accommodations were very close to the subways and places to shop, eat, etc. I’m glad Kiyoshi planned it this way! While we had a longer bus ride from Tokyo to Kyoto, I’m glad it was fashioned this way, as we had lots of luggage in our group and would have. had a difficult time maneuvering around in the stations. During our long rides, we were entertained and given information about the places we were to visit. Glad we were able to have Eileen as our tour guide the remainder of you trip! Tour is tight with not too much time in some of places we visited, however, I think you tried to acommodate what we wanted to see in the days we had planned. We therefore understand why our schedule was tight. Otherwise we were very happy with everything in our tour!
