“I had an absolutely fantastic experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable about what she was talking about and was a sweetheart. We had decent amounts of free time everywhere we went. I would recommend this trip to anyone and cannot wait for my next one!” stated Katherine, a Student Traveler who rated the Japan Tour five stars.
“The view from the window of each hotel showed us Japan in so many ways! Each stop was unique in area and style and students loved it. It was easy enough to get around and our tour guide went out of his way to help us and show us places we wanted to go that were not listed. This experience has helped the students to see the world in a different way as well as to climb their own mountain of learning!” said Essie, a Group Leader who rated the trip five stars.
