“Mt. Fuji 1 Day tour”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Today we took a tour with this agency to Mt. Fuji and were very pleased by their service and their guide Emikosun.

Even though we were not picked up at our hotel, as with Grey Line Tours, the trip was very well organized and the guide spoke very good English.

The weather wasn't promising and we almost lost hope to see the peak but to everyone's surprise we got very lucky and the clouds cleared up. Through out the entire trip our guide had told us about the Japanese culture, interesting facts about it, and a few funny jokes. She reminded of a very patient, kind hearted, school teacher who took care of us, made sure we learned well, and then got home safely.

Tip: book this trip days in advance, it sells out very quickly.

“Could have seen more”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

My son and I did a full day tour of Tokyo. Although a pleasant day out, the pace was a little too leisurely - leaving us feeling that we could have got more out of the day. Instead of a visit to Tokyo Tower we would have preferred a visit to Tokyo Skytree, which is newer, taller and hard to get to. The included lunch was of a high standard, however the river cruise was somewhat meaningless as there was no accompanying commentary.

“Sunrise Tours to tour Japan”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I booked through Viator.com, 3 different tours with Sunrise tours. Specifically, i took a half-day Narra tour, Full-day Kyoto tour, and Full-day Hiroshima/Miyajima tour.

I specifically was looking for english speaking tour guides. As we were going through the tours, seems like there were two other companies that had english speaking tours.

My feedback is primarily general:

1) Please make sure you double/triple check your pickup if you are not going to meet them at the initial location and have a pickup scheduled with them. In 2/3 tours, we used a pickup location and were not picked up until several calls to them.

2) English is not their primary language of course, so you never know who you will get. On one of the tours, the person english was really weak, and he was talking very fast that it was hard to understand him.

3) The guides, know many of the general items, which you will hear. but very little was shared when it came to true historical details or tying the historical flow together.

4) They need to add time to the tours to enjoy a little more. You really don't get enough time at the stops for the pictures or just to walk around for shopping.

I am not sure if I would use their services again.

“Tokyo morning tour”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

When we arrived in Tokyo we had a sunrise tour booked to see some of the Tokyo sites.
The tour guide Mai san was excellent she took us on a bus tour of Tokyo Tour, Imperial Palace, a Shrine and then drive through Ueno and Ginza. These tours are a great way to get orientated when you arrive in Japan and the tour guides are really helpful with providing you with support in other areas. Was very pleased by the tour and the guide's professionalism.
I recommend the Nara Afternoon tour as well the guide was not as good as in Tokyo but it is any easy way to see attractions and to get supporting information on different attractions.
All tour guides have very good English speaking skills.

“Excellent day trip to Mt Fuji and Hakone; return to Tokyo via bullet train”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Tour itinerary was well-planned and tour was very well organized. Entire trip was worth every cent paid--from the coach drive to Mt Fuji, the lunch, the cruise on Lake Ashi, the Komaga-take ropeway ride, right to the bullet train back to Tokyo. We had a very patient, attentive, caring and well-versed Japanese guide, Harry san, who spoke good English, and was above all, humorous! He not only gave a running commentary of sights along the way and the history of Japan, he entertained us with jokes and interesting anecdotes. He also made sure we all knew how to return to our hotels from our different drop off points. The coach driver was very careful and the drive was smooth throughout. To top all that, the view of Mt Fuji was fantastic! Well done, Harry san! Well done, Sunrise Tours!
