Ellie was our tour guide and she did a wonderful job to keep the group entertained throughout the day. She was working pretty hard, paid attention to all details, communicated very clearly and shared some personal insights into Japanese culture, life and religion. The tour was well paced, enough pit-stops. Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to go up to the 5th station, but later on we still caught the sight of Mt. Fuji.
Japanese lunch was nice, although not my taste. Still plenty and well presented.
There are a lot of shopping opportunities during this tour, in addition to the cultural sights. The cablecar was a great experience, and the Shinkanzen at the end is a blast! A very good tour.
