The trip is nice but coverage is not good considering the price. One more place should be covered to complete the second day. We reached very early by 4:30 compare to other tours though the price is less. The tour guide is very good.

I recommend this tour!

It was a good tour. The first day of the tour is okay since we covered most of the areas. The tour guide is nice. The concern I have is that the tour guide should be more organized because it was a little upsetting that we would get told at the last minute of what are the next things we would be doing or if there are any changes. The itinerary was rushed. I hope we were given more time to look at the attractions on the second day of the tour since there is still plenty of time that day to visit the tourist attraction. We arrived in our drop off location earlier as I expected. Overall, the whole trip was okay.

I recommend this tour!

The tour was well worth the money. The tour guide was friendly, the hotel was great. Since the tour had a small amount of people, we took a smaller bus without a bathroom, which was okay since we made a few stops, but not if you are pregnant or have bladder issues. The itinerary felt a bit rushed at times but I think that is typical of these tours. However we did cover all the areas promised.

I recommend this tour!

We (my wife and I) just got back from our tour this weekend, and were quite satisfied with the tour. We got a small bus as there were only around 23 people registered for the tour. Our guide, John, did a fantastic job all along. He had a good sense of humor, warm and friendly nature. It was raining both the days, so that was annoying. Of course we couldn't enjoy the full Cherry Blossom due to weather factors. But surely no one can do anything in this regard. The hotel accommodation was excellent, and the rest of trip was very good. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends. The next two weeks are expected to have full blossom. Just check out for the weather predictions, no worries from the tour organizers that I can confirm!
