fabulous trip!

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 […]

The two tours we had booked, the Mt Fuji-Hakone tour and the all day Kyoto tour, were facilitated by energetic, enthusiastic guides […]

We had a fantastic time

Hi Steven, We had a fantastic time, everything went smoothly and I was very thankful for JTB sending someone to meet me at the airport to arrange all the train tickets and JR pass etc. The students said Kyoto and Takayama were their favourite places and experiences.

Yelp Review

This review was taken from the JTB Australia Yelp Page Picture a sweaty bald man hurtling down the street armed to the teeth with luggage (suitcase, laptop and camera backpack). Then throw into the mix the following phrase “If you go to Japan you need a Japan Rail Pass… Oh and you have to book them about 2 weeks in advance!”  It was with this knowledge […]
