Both the Japanese language speaking tour guide and the English speaking tour guide was really friendly and nice. I really enjoyed this 1 day tour. Wish we had more time at Takayama and Shirakawago, but I understand that the journey was far and it took quite a look for travelling time. The food at the hotel was so- so only to me. There were a lot of variety but the taste is average to me. Food at Takayama City was much nicer. For people who doesn't have much time but would ike to see Shirakawago and Takayama, I highly recommend this 1 day tour. I've been to Shirakawago before during winter last time and join the tour this time to experience Shirakawago during summer instead. It's truly a very scenic place.
