The schedule of the tour was very punctual and the destinations were beautiful. The lunch provided tasted great. I can't rate the lodging as we didn't book our lodging with the tour. As for our guide, she was very informative, helpful and very welcoming. Would love to have her as a guide again someday. Overall we had a wonderful experience for the trip!

Fabulous day trip with plenty of time in each stop. Guide very informative.
Mr. / 30-39 / Italy
The tour was very good! Our guide Meiko was so nice and helpful. She had a good balance between show/explain everything and leave for free time and self exploration. We were a small group of 6 persons in total. We had enough time to see everything, takayama morning market and shirakawago little town.

Super pleased with this shuttle tour - great value for money and since there was only 3 of us it was almost like a personalised tour. Our guide Sumiko was fantastic and had a great sense of humour! She sang, made origami and played little kanji quizzes with us during the drive. Of course, she also provided plenty of interesting information about Shirakawago, Miboro Dam and other spots. Lunch was nutritious Japanese countryside cuisine, and the weather was perfect. Being conveniently dropped off at Kanazawa Station at the end of the day so we could continue our travels was great too. Couldn't recommend this shuttle plan more!

We were pleasantly surprised how lovely this tour was. We had a deluxe mini bus with large windows. The tour guide provided lots of information throughout the day together with maps and tourist information pamphlets. She even helped us catch a taxi at the end of the tour! It would have been nice to have a little longer at the market in the morning. We only had 30 minutes so felt a bit rushed. Lunch was lovely and authentic Japanese. We thought we’d missed cherry blossoms being the end of April; however we were so lucky that we were able to see them! Our tour finished early than expected but overall thought it was a great tour and good value for money.

It would be good if the tour would bring you back to originating point or best warned travelers that best to stay the night in Kanazawa, since transportation to next destination might be limited.

This plan was great. We used a chartered bus, which was really comfortable. The time in the morning market was a bit long, but it gave me the chance to walk around other areas. Shirakawago was beautiful and interesting, and there was a good balance between the guided visit and free time to explore. Our guide (Sumiko) was excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable. I even got a personalised souvenir from her.
