My husband and I have just returned from travelling around the world for the past 9 weeks. Our final port of call was Japan . Normally independent travellers, we decided that by the ninth week of our holiday, we would prefer to have someone do some organising for us which is when I was lucky enough to see your advertisement in the Sunday Age. We were indeed quite tired by the time we arrived in Tokyo, but the JTB organisation was faultless.
A charming representative of JTB was waiting for us when we emerged through customs . He led us to a beautiful limousine which took us straight to our hotel . From then onwards everything ran so smoothly all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. We had enough free time to visit at length all the galleries and museums we wanted to, and the tours we took were all without exception of the highest quality. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful JTB staff and each tour guide genuinely did his or her best to ensure that we all saw and learnt a lot. Included lunches were well served and delicious.
The trains, of course, were exactly on time, clean and comfortable and we were extremely impressed with the JTB organisation whereby if we needed to change trains, a smiling representative of the company was waiting on the platform to show us where to go. We did not book expensive hotels, but were impressed with the quality of our accommodation for the price we paid.
Next time we visit Japan we hope to visit some of the spa resorts throughout this beautiful and hospitable country. Naturally, we will be using the services of JTB again!
Please pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone at JTB for giving us such a memorable first visit to Japan . Also thankyou to Olivia Burke in the Melbourne office who did this booking for us.
We would be interested to receive further information about travel with JTB in Japan to help us plan further visits in the future.
