“ Great tour to Mt Fuji ”

Great tour to Mt Fuji even on a busy holiday. We had a fun time and saw a lot of sights in a short time. We all enjoyed it.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately Jan 2 is one of the busiest days in Japan, so we faced a long queue and a heavy trafic jam. Even so, it is my great pleasure to know that you enjoyed beautiful Mt. Fuji and other sceneries. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Nobu

“ Very dedicated, patient and informed guide that plans ahead ”

We are very happy to have Nobu as our guide during the hectic Christmas and New Year season. We approached Nobu to do a 1 day Fuji tour and 1 day City tour that is catered to our family with 2 young boys ( 4 yo and 21month old). He is on the ball when it comes to replying to our many enquiries as we were extra cautious when we bring our 2 boys. He gave us various options as well as costings quickly which make it easier for our decision making and budgeting during the peak season. During the trip, he was very friendly and help to entertain our little ones here and there when we need to attend to something i.e. we were given pockets of opportunities to buy and gobble down some nice Sashimi in the overly crowded Tsukiji market while Nobu kindly tend to them; My boy vomitted on myself ... read more

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Cheryl. I really enjoyed being with you and your family for the 2 days! I actually had the itinerary for each day, but I did not show it to you because I thought it would be changed from time to time. I should have shown it to you in any Event. I am Looking Forward to meeting you, your husband and your boys again in the future! Nobu
