fabulous trip!

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

Hi Paul

Our trip was fabulous!! The accommodation – Hotel Monterey in Kyoto was in a great location within easy walking distances of city, Gion areas etc. The room was probably a bit small (but I think they all are!) but clean and comfortable. The day tours were excellent and we certainly learnt a lot of history and saw all the amazing temples. We particularly loved walking around the older parts of Kyoto. Because it was National Holidays so many women and men were wearing traditional clothes which were so beautiful and colourful. The Ryokan Hotel Kikunya on Miyajima was terrific. Highly recommended. We had an ocean view room and loved the Onsen baths. A great experience. And it was very interesting and sad visiting the bomb site and museum in Hiroshima. Miyajima was beautiful and catching the ferry with the JR pass made it very easy.
The JR Pass is a great way to use the trains and we certainly did that!
We also loved our stay in Tokyo and catching up with our friends who live there.
Oh and the weather was perfect – only one day of rain.

So thank you again for all your assistance in making our trip so memorable.

Kindest regards

thank you for saving me!

Hi Olivia … I don’t think I can say thank you enough!! You are wonderful and I sincerely appreciate your help – thank you for saving me! Have a great weekend! Regards, Louise

p.s. I just want to say….

Perfect thank you Christopher, Quick couple of questions; You mentioned if the customer is wanting to keep budget down we could look at staying at a “normal hotel in Hiroshima”. What do you mean by that? I see we have recommended staying at Miyajima seaside hotel Hiroshima which is out on an island in Hiroshima – are there options to stay in Hiroshima on the mainland? Obviously they will not be as nice as the Seaside hotel? Also will there still be snow at the time of year this couple are actually going to Hakuba to ski? I just want to make sure I manage their expectations for the time of year they are travelling. P.S I just want to say you have been absolutely amazing so far – I really hope these clients book and when I get future Japan enquiries you will be my first phone call. Thank you again Christopher. Kind Regards, Brooke

Spectacular Nikko!

Morning John, Brianna went to Nikko and is loving it. Your advice was spectacular and I could not have made the suggestions I did without your guidance. Thank you for allowing my client to make an informed decision, they are absolutely grateful. Kind regards, Graham

Real success

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015
Good morning Clement. Thanks for the message. Everything ran smoothly and the Hotels were great. It was really good to experience two Hotels in Tokyo, but the location of the Shinagawa Prince made getting around a lot easier than it was when we were at the Tokyo Prince. The New Miyako was excellent. The Tours were fine but if we were to do it again we might do walking tours rather than half day tours in Tokyo and Kyoto. Weather was really good apart from the last two days. Thanks again for your help putting it together. All up it was a real success! Patrick

Had a wonderful time

Hi Mende, Just to let you know we had a wonderful time in our travels and thank you for your assistance and advice – all very useful. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to take the ropeway on Miyajima Isand. (We’ll just have to go back!). Would you please pass on our thanks to Paul who saved us from a number of potentially embarrassing moments by his practical teaching and phrase book. Regards, Stephen and Roxley

Above and Beyond!

Hi John, Perfect! That is great. I will keep an eye out for them. You have been great- gone completely above and beyond with this booking particularly regarding the few kinks. I have highly recommended you to my colleagues so I hope you get a few more bookings out of it. Take Care and thanks again! Morgan

In heaven!

Wonderful Service

Friday, September 4th, 2015
Hi Olivia, How are you. We are back after a very good holiday. Everything went according to the plan and there wasn’t any hiccups. Thank you very much for your wonderful service. We have done all the tours and visits as per the plan. Keio Plaza hotel in Shinjuku is excellent. If we were to go to Japan again (very likelihood) we would stay at the same hotel in Tokyo. Unfortunately We cannot say the same thing about Granvia hotel in Kyoto. Granvia in Hiroshima was ok. Just for the information, Airport Limousine bus comes to Narita Terminal 3 where Jetstar lands. NTT Docomo sim card worked well. Kind regards, Don and Sandy

Simply a pleasure to deal with!

Hi Antonia, you really are great at your job, thank you so much, your expertise has really helped me throughout this booking and I have great confidence in this trip even though my Japan knowledge is limited but that is all due to you :-) And you are always friendly, a pleasure to deal with! Cheers, Michelle

Wonderful trip to Japan

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015
Dear Olivia, A very belated thank you to you and your staff, for putting together a wonderful trip to Japan. Every move went on with barely a hitch, and we never lost anybody, even Les, my room mate, who, admittedly at 84, struggled to keep up with everyone. The heat alone was enough for a lot of us at times. So with the club talking of going again in two years, I would be very interested of going again! Many regards, Russ.
