We had a great time. Like Nick said, this was the best vacation he has ever taken (and he and I have been on a number of adventures through the years). Samurai Tours was great. Thank you very much for your assistance. You guys were wonderful. I will highly recommend your company for anyone interested in traveling to Japan.
Very clear instructions / directions which were logically laid out for each day of our trip. Details for navigating Japan's transportation services excellent and easy to follow. High praise for Samurai Tours itinerary.
Hotels were excellent. Especially the traditional Japanese hotel in Nikko. All hotels were close to the train stations so transportation easy to access. Especially appreciated prefilling out the luggage transfer forms for moving between major locations so we did not have to move heavy backpacks.
The food was great, never had a bad or unpleasant experience. The noodle shops around Shinagawa station were excellent. The meals at the ryokan were superb.
The meeting service upon our arrival was very helpful getting us through the Tokyo airport, securing our JR passes / reservations and getting us on to Kyoto (what a blessing). The guide on Monday (Faye) was excellent. Very knowledgeable of the historical background of the temples visited and adding extra experiences (i.e... tea ceremony) to our day was very appreciated. Highly recommend.
What can you say....you knocked the cover off the ball and provided relevant and very useful information before out trip.
