Tour Review

Who loves our tour?

  • Gordon Mackenzie

    Fabulous Cycle Tour

    This was one of the highlights of our trip. Shingo was the perfect guide sharing his knowledge and passion for his home area while leading us on an enjoyable cycle. He is extremely professional and is meticulous in his organisation. By the end of the trip we felt we had made a new friend and the photos he has sent to us will serve as a lovely memory of a great morning. Highly recommended.

  • Anna Whitelaw

    A fantastic bike ride and tour

    Don't hesitate to book this great bike ride! We went with Shingo who is the perfect host and tour guide on a wonderful ride. Saw all the beautiful sites and learnt a lot about the area and culture- just great! Took our 7 year old daughter who enjoyed it and had no trouble with the ride.

  • Amy Meech

    Epic Bike Ride

    An outstanding bike ride across the beautiful Hida countryside taking in the rice fields, Hida cows, various shrines, the local market and a very tasty natural spring. Guided superbly by a very knowledgeable tour guide who was kind and very passionate about his town. Greeted by school children and farmers throughout. Would highly recommend. Mainly flat so all cycling abilities would really enjoy this. 5 stars
