Enjoyed the programmer , just some suggestion for time should give more time. The guide Kim is very friendly and helpful. Lunch is not so good. Traffics also very bad
It was a Great Experience. I belong to small group so it was easier 😎
This tour is good if one is in Japan for a short period and does not want to miss a visit to Mt. Fuji. Well organized, but the various stops we did during the day were very short and in places that seemed specifically set-up for tourists, especially the "Ninja village" where we had lunch. Given that you depend on the group in your bus, there is no freedom in deciding what you do during the 20-30 min max stop. There is an audioguide that speaks during the trip and the actual guide barely adds something to that information. They are all polite, but overall the tour is nothing very special- except the presence of Mt Fuji.
We had Jessica as our guide and she was great. She gave us a birds eye view of Tokyo. We could then focus on our points of interest during the rest of our stay. And for a more hands on those areas we had a walking tour with another wonderful guide (but that's a separate review). The experience gave us the confidence to have future bookings with TripleLights.
We chose this company's tour of Mt Fuji and Hakone as it used Shinjuku to start and finish the guide Makato was knowledgeable and accommodating to all the bus had narrow but comfortable seats up 4 steps We were not warned of the lack of handicaps essay many stops and points. No elevators just 2-3 flights of stairs to climb and hundreds of yards to walk on inot maintained paths This tour should be rated As not for those with mobility problems and not for those who can not com flights of stairs in near freezing weather We also learnned that the company brochure addresses summer weather and never statesthat in March the tour does not go to 5th stage and winter snow means less than 10percent chance seeing Fuji in winter The tour was exhausting for senior citizens and is not recommended for them. The crowds were rude and inconsiderate at times to slower walkers. Bus mates were kind The driver was wonderful with mountain roads the guide worked with every passenger personally to make their day and to get them to their hotel safely. Makato is a national Japan guide and helped some with future travel in detail Nd with good humor
