“ Pleasant and Professional ”

Jack’s knowledge of Japanese history and wonderful Nikko National Park is deep and interesting. He was eager to share his love of the subjects with our foursome on his Greedy Nikko Tour. While the weather was not the best – low visibility hid famous Kegon Falls from sight – we thoroughly enjoyed our drive with its hairpin turns, walks through woods, and views of other waterfalls, the hot springs, etc. Jack’s expertise shone at magnificent Toshu-gu Shrine. He guided us through the spacious site with its multiple buildings and crowds, pointed out and explained many features and details, and easily answered all our questions. His English is very good, and his manner attentive and kind. We would definitely hire Jack again.

Jack:

Hi Linda, Thank you very much for your comments. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with you. Looking forward to seeing you next time you are in Japan. Kind regards, Jack

“ The day in Nikko ”

Had a terrific day in Nikko with Jack. Lots to see and learn. Jack was communicative and informative and I enjoyed his company through the day. We met in Nikko since I was already in the area and spent the day walking and climbing all over the area from the World Heritage Sites to the Villa and beyond. It’s was great. Couple things I should note. First wear shoes that you can easily slip on and off because you will be talking them off multiple times at these sites. Second, if you are in any way mobility challenged, Nikko will be very difficult for you: the place is just not suited for wheelchairs, walkers, or even canes. And we walked 11 miles plus did over 50 floors of stairs (the stairs are uneven and with no railings, FYI). If you can get around, it is a terrific place to see an... read more

Jack:

Hello Jim, Thank you for your comment and I really enjoyed the day with you. Unexpectedly my train delayed a little bit but you accept the situation nicely. How did you enjoy staying in Sendai? I hope you bring nice memories back to your hometown. Kind regards, Jack

“ What an incredible day in Nikko! ”

From the very beginning till the end we had a wonderful time. Jack is very knowledgable and he is a great story teller. We love nature and Jack tailored our day towards lakes, waterfalls, mountains, but did not leave out important historical places. Itinerary is packed for one day and we had to be prompt in some places, but we managed to find enough time to have a great lunch in local restaurant - yummy! We were lucky with the weather, as it started to rain really heavy, while we were driving back to the station. It was a fantastic day and Jack is a rock-star! We loved it and highly recommend this tour. Kasia & Maciej

Jack:

Hello Maciej and Kasia, Thank you for your compliments. It is certainly due to the weather but we really enjoyed a whole day. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan. Kind regards, Jack
