Tour Review

Who loves our tour?

  • Laura Wright

    Great way to spend a morning around Hida

    Fantastic tour of the local area, with interesting stories and information from our guide. It was great to get insight into the local culture and see some areas we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Lunch was a real treat too, consisting of a prepacked chiller bag filled with local delicacies. Final note is that using e-bikes makes it easy for people of any fitness level to do. The hike up the waterfalls and back was a bit more effort but there are lots of rest stops so it’s OK. Altogether well worth the time and money to do this tour!

    Brilliant day out in beautiful countryside

    This was our best day in Japan so far! You bike through the town through paddyfields and up into the hills, then hike up past stunningly beautiful waterfalls. The e-bikes were very well maintained and make the hills a breeze so if you're not feeling fit it won't matter. The guides spoke excellent English and were really nice - knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna and very friendly. (they also took some great photos for us and emailed them to us the same day). Our picnic lunch (food included) was tasty too!"
