This tour is well organized and if you like temples (Nikko is al about that) this tour is a good spot for climb very nice temples in a suggestive environment! The temples are inside a nice forest and this provide them a magic atmosphere :-)
Be ready do climb a lot of steps!
This is the first negative review I have on a viator tour.
For this particular tour I had to pay for all train tickets, entrance tickets for myself and guide, also paid for his lunch. That puts all the extra charge at over 50% of what I already paid for the tour.
There was nothing that I could not have done for myself. The same package can be bought at Asakusa station(where I purchased for myself and the guide). The guide just walk us around the site.
We had to take subway with the guide( I paid for his fare) during Tokyo rush hour in the morning after he met us. Faced the same rush upon our return.
Viator should not have marketed this tour where there too much was not included. Save yourself lots of money and just buy the package at Asakua station yourself.
