The travel planner and I worked on our trip (9 days to Kyoto, Nara and Toyko) for months before we left. I changed the itinerary several times and the planner was very patient and accommodating.The trip went off without a hitch, everything was perfect and as advertised. We had two guides, our guide in Kyoto and our guide in Toyko who spoke very good English and were a pleasure to be with. They were very nice, knowledgeable and fun to tour with.The hotels we stayed a were 4 to 5 star and were great, the meals that were set up for us were great (best sushi in Toyko I ever had).My son who traveled with me got sick during the trip and our travel planner was communicating with us twice a day on how he was doing and offering to help anyway he could. He was very concerned.The planner's follow-up is excellent, for me that's really important. Through out the whole process from beginning to end his response time was amazing.Our planner gave us a hot spot wifi device to use for free for our entire trip, it was a great amenity as we could text, email and google while we were touring. Little amenities like that can make or break a trip.For anybody traveling Japan the language is a real problem unless you speak Japanese, not many English speaking people. I would strongly recommend having a guide to make your trip more pleasant. Overall our travel planner gets a 5 star rating from both my son and I. He was terrific.
One last thing, I've traveled a lot over the last 30 years and been to just about everywhere including Antartica, Madagascar and the Arctic, Japan is a very safe and cool country to visit. I always do private tours and I put the planner's company at the very top for detail, price and planning. Trust me he's well worth the investment.
