We thoroughly enjoyed touring with Miharu and Barbara! They both did an outstanding excellent job taking care of us, arranging visits to many interesting sites, explaining the Japanese culture, introducing regional Japanese foods and providing a wonderful fun experience that we will always remember. The very well done descriptive placards/slides really helped us remember details of Japanese history and interesting facts of the sights. The accommodations were all excellent. The hotel spas and courteous amenities (toothbrushes, shavers, etc.) were unexpected but appreciated. The hotel breakfasts were very good and we had no problems finding foods to our liking...some Japanese treats and some western foods. We are accustomed to softer bed mattresses but sufficiently coped as part of the travel experience. The bus transportation in well maintained vehicles was comfortable and the professional drivers did an outstanding job keeping us safe on the roads. Rest stops were timed perfectly so everyone was comfortable especially during the longer rides. The tour description was perfect so we knew what to expect. The broad range of sites from temples, shrines, markets, a castle, gardens, and views of the terrain thru the mountains kept the pace surprising and exciting. Your customer support was very helpful arranging our preferred cooked not raw dishes, informative and was always responsive to our needs. We appreciate that you answered all our many questions during the tour and for the pictures you sent along too. Thank you very much!

The group of 6 in Korea worked really well. Big shout- out to Brian (the guide) and Mr Moon (the driver) who worked as a great team even though Brian told us they had not met before. The group of 34 in Japan was obviously a little less straightforward to coordinate and our guide was not quite as good, but we had been spoiled by Brian and there were no problems. The participants were all very good sports and there were no issues with lateness or prima donna behaviour. The hotel rooms were a good standard everywhere. We were a bit disappointed by the breakfasts in Korea.

I am an inexperienced and nervous traveler. I am very glad we chose to book with All Japan Tours, because it made our vacation enjoyable and stress-free. We got to experience a wide range of sites-- natural beauty, temples and shrines, and local markets. We booked extra "personal" days before and after the tour, and when they sent us our tour guide packet it included specific directions for how we could get between the airport and the hotel, down to which train lines to take to which stops. This helped us navigate the trains without issue. AJT is very helpful and flexible! Joyce was an amazing tour guide! She taught us a lot of cultural and historical information, which helped us better understand the sites. She was flexible and smart- - she would tweak our schedule order to avoid being stuck in city traffic, which let us maximize our time at the sites so that we missed nothing. Couldn't ask for a more upbeat or helpful guide.

It would be helpful to have the topo maps when making a decision about which tour is the best fit. This tour was more strenuous than anticipated.

We had such a great time. The tour was great. Joyce our guide was great. And our bus driver was great. Japan was our first international trip and our 25th anniversary and we couldn’t be happier. We saw so many good things in a short time and we could not have done that without AJT. It’s hard to pick our favorite activities as we loved all of them and can’t imagine which we would cut if we had to. When I saw the green tea ceremony and the sushi making, I didn’t think I would like either and honestly, they sounded like time fillers, but having done them I can say we really enjoyed both. They were fun and interesting and we are thankful to have done them. We love Joyce. She did a great job keeping us organized and keeping us informed, but she was also very kind and helpful. I believe we would have said these things either way, but we did have a personal situation that she volunteered to resolve for us. In short, my wife left her phone in a taxi before the tour began and Joyce was able to get the phone recovered for us. She didn’t have to do that and we didn’t ask her to. We were asking her for nearby electronic stores that sold unlocked phones and she asked us why and we explained the situation. She called the taxi. No phone. She messaged the company. They message back. No phone. They will investigate further. Next day they call Joyce. They have the phone. She arranges to have the phone shipped to the Tokyo Metropolitan Hotel where we would arrive in a couple days. Upon arriving at that hotel, the concierge has the phone on top of their desk, and they give us the phone and we pay for the shipping in cash. It will be impossible for us not to give Joyce a 10/10 after taking care of that for us. But also, she did do a very good job on the tour.

Our tour guide,Billy, was excellent! He was so knowledgeable and cared so much! Our bus driver was so skilled, we all commented on it. He was a very safe driver. I cannot say enough about him. The tour showed us so many highlights of Japan. It was a perfect trip! Our only comment is that it would be nice to have a send off dinner or breakfast- after 6-7 days together we started to like each other. Thank you so much for an amazing tour. I will use AJT in the future.
