Tour Review

Who loves our tour?

  • Andrew Bowden

    Perfect rainy day

    Due to rain our cycle tour had to be cancelled a great disappointed but Juri our lovely guide gave us an excellent walking tour of Takayama instead. Her knowledge was immense but she was never boring and we learnt a lot about the town and its traditions. Juri was the perfect guide.

    Walking Tour

    Really interesting insight into the history and life in a small Japanese town in the mountain area of Hida would recommend this tour on foot or by bicycle
