    Our ride arrived on time but we are late and he waited patiently. An hour of our road trip the tire burst and we were escorted by the traffic police to a safe location. His friend arrived to take us to our tour and seems our ride got better. Takayama is a nice place and Shirakawa as well though not much snow fall yet.

    The family was able to see a lot of places in a very short time. Klook was able to arrange an english speaking driver that made things much easier. A good change from busy Japanese cities as one gets to see the beautiful Japanese mountains and countryside timed nicely with fall colors.

    The driver is very good and responsible. However, it made me worry because the driver didn’t call and confirm me in the earlier time

    Wasn't as expected. The driver (Zhang) contacted us late at night before the day which means we had unhappily planned for another schedule thinking that our activity was somehow "cancelled" (I was ready to argue with Klook for a full refund). He also contacted me by phone call, not by whatsapp or email as described (it costed me quite high taking the roaming call). If I didn't activated any roaming package on my phone, he wouldn't be able to contact me. Another problem is that we are quite disappointed with the service we got after all that fuss. - He wasn't friendly at all. He didn't looked interested in conversing with us so the whole road trip was silent. There wasn't any greeting every time we came back to the car. We had to wake him up to get in the car. No words at all also when he took us to the entrance of the sites before he left us (not even a "let's go"). - He didn't look so well (probably had a flu) and sleepy all the time so there were a couple of times his driving was dangerous (my parents got really scared and tried to keep him awake by coughing). - There was barely any explanation on the sites we visited. Every description was very brief and something we already knew beforehand (always ended with "I'll wait in car"). - It feels like we were there only for the ride, which is the only good thing. The car was very nice and comfy and actually cheaper than taking a bus. However, due to his carelessness in driving I'd recommend other people to take buses instead for safety issue. P.S: My review was purely based on my personal experience on a particular driver. Other drivers may not have the same issue.

    The local driver’s guide “Abu” was very comprehensive and caring for the elderly. He did not hesitate to answer our request. So that we can come to this beautiful Shirakawago on a sunny day and taste the delicious Hida!

    A great trip. The first time I participated, I went to the car in the evening before the departure to contact the car information, scaring the baby. But I will still recommend the road, because it is convenient and time-saving.

    Talk to the driver and learn to work with a work permit! So I am not familiar with the place, did not specifically introduce nearby attractions, just stop the Alpine Array House & Hezhang Village according to the order. There is no special way to tell you how much time to wait until the information is available! This time it is a chartered car! No good and bad reviews! But also the hard drive for a long time! Thank you!
