This tour was not very organized...
Laverne A
, Dec 2017
This tour was not very organized especially for a Japanese company. I liked the idea that when they pick you upat the Hearton Hotel they already have your seat signed to you so no confusion, But after that they take you to the Namba station where you have to check in again. Our tour had 3 groups doing 3 different tours with in a this tour group, plus it was in 3 different languages Chinese, English and Japanese. This tour basically just get you to the destination and make sure you are where you need to be at the time designated. No other information offered, so if you are looking for just transportations this is a good tour but if you are looking for some local knowledge about the area visiting this is not it! I would not use this vendor again.
