What people are saying about Nikko

On the night before, I came up with the idea, "Let's go to Nikko!" I like traveling by myself. I would recommend this tour for foreigners to the same type of Japanese for the following reasons. [Keep time fair] Everyone is desperate not to get lost in a foreign country. Nobody doesn't follow the meeting time everywhere they go. [I don't smell like alcohol] Japanese ojisans (even though they are themselves) will start drinking sake and canned beer right in their cars, right? For those who don't drink in the daytime, traveling on a savory bus is just painful. That point was really helpful. [It is difficult to talk in the car] If you are caught by another passenger who likes talking on a bus tour, it is the last time. (Only the memories of that person remain from the memories of the trip.) In addition, in the case of a bus tour for Japanese, the guide will talk about everything and let the passengers get tired, but the guide of this tour will talk briefly about t

In this short tour I was able to visit the shrine, see the water fall, the beautiful lake, mountain and enjoyed a local onsen. The two rest stops were worth visiting as well because there were clean toilets (one had ikebana and origami display), nice restaurants and shops :) Every activity was well paced out I think. The tour guide was very patient and helpful. She came prepared with the map drawn by her and English explanation. She gave tips on where we had better spent more time at the shrine. The onsen experience was not really amazing. It's a very small local and indoors onsen. Overall, considering the price that I paid for and places that I have experienced within a day, all's good.

Super nice activity. The sanctuary is a real wonder. The falls are also worth seeing. The different activities are well balanced, not too much downtime. The guide was super good and spoke good English. To recommend.

The ticket bought via get online is cheaper than buy at entrance. Good to buy online advance :) Need to check the shuttle bus/local bus schedule if you don’t drive. Only one or two buses per hour.

Amazing place to visit. Beautiful waterfall and the Shrine was stunning.
