Best tour and guide ever!! Totally worth every penny. Taiji is brilliant and entertaining. He went out of his way to make sure that we had the best time. Traveling with my 80 year old mother who uses a wheelchair is not easy but he was so helpful and patient with us. Thanks for everything, Taiji!
I only have great things to say about this tour! I was having a hard time choosing the right tour for us since we were total of 7 people - 2 seniors, 3 adults, 1 5yr. old and 1 19mo. old baby. Most tour buses have age requirements, so my kids cannot be included in any tour anymore since the youngest they can accommodate was 6yrs. old. But then I chanced upon this offer and at first I thought it was quite expensive, but when I communicated with the tour guide - Mr. Endo - he was very accommodating and he suggested the right tour options for our group. I trusted his suggestion and I am very glad we did! He brought us to places that were not the usual touristy areas to get a feel of the local vibe. But we still saw the famous areas around Mt. Fuji. He brought us to a lunch place that was very special, a local restaurant that uses their own home grown veggies, fresh salmon from the river and handmade udon noodles - this was really a highlight of our trip! Mr. Endo is very knowledgeable, he speaks good English as well. If we knew about him beforehand, we would have booked him many times during our trip in Tokyo since he also tours in other places and not just in Mt. Fuji. We will definitely book him again when we go back! Oh, and he will pick you up and bring you back to your hotel - this was a real convenience. : Thank you Mr. Endo for the very fun tour! My kids loved you as well, they can't stop asking when they will see you again... :
