    The English tour guide was very helpful and provided us with information of the different places along the way to our destination. Both tour guides were friendly and checked to see if we needed help whenever they saw us during the free time. Information brochures and maps were given out in English and Chinese to help us with knowing each area better as well.

    The allotted time at the Shirakawa was quite short as there was a lot of walking and sightseeing to do there. The itinerary was quite compressed. The buffet lunch at the restaurant was quite awesome as there were a wide selection of Western and Japanese food.
  • SIE YEE 7 Dec 2018
    Awesome tour with friendly tour guide. They can speak English and Chinese very well. Too bad it was raining. Will join again in the future.
  • Marie Clarise 7 Dec 2018

  • Yim Peng 6 Dec 2018

  • Kim Kha 5 Dec 2018
    Maps are given by the tour guide and they gave us explainations along the way to Takayama and Shirakawa-go. Although it is rain, the trip was fun and excellent. *Should have spare umbrella for the passengers during rainy day. We doesn’t have any umbrella and we were wet ran inside the rain. Postcard as a souvenir is a good idea, memorable! English translater was good in English and the tour guide were friendly.

  • Andrew Shang Kwee 4 Dec 2018
    Worth visiting even though the journey is long. Tour guide and bus guide done a great job. Overall a good experience.
  • Kathrina 2 Dec 2018
    Very friendly and efficient guides and driver. Even if it says in the description that info about the attractions will only be explained in Japanese, the English-speaking guide was more than willing to answer questions and explain points of interest that we pass by during the ride. They also made sure everyone was back before leaving an area. The pickup area is also very easy to find, with clear signages pointing the way. Very smooth experience end to end! 👍😊👍
