The tour is great and worth the money. One note though, it was a large group tour. The tour guide on our second day was not the best. She was running ahead of the group and when the tail end of the tour group catches up, she had already finished the presentation. Her name is Saico ( like psycho).

Great 2 day trip. Action packed. Unfortunately Mt Fuji was clouded over but Lake Ashi and Hakone were great to visit. Kyoto was amazing. Would recommend at least 2 full days in Kyoto.

A great 2 day tour. Day 1 was excellent featuring Mt Fuji, Lake Ashigarashimo-Gun and the scenic ropeway gondola ride. Well organised at every point. Guides slightly difficult to understand English pronunciation.
Shinkansen bullet train ride to KYOTO very good.
Day 2 featured 5 shrines and temples with imperial palace. Most temples were excellent.
A great easy introduction to Kyoto.

Terrific, well organized, and professional. Only complaint: we had no idea where our hotel in Kyoto was located -- and we managed to select the one farthest from the gathering point, making us last to our hotel and first to be picked up the next morning -- all at the highest price charged Hotel Okura. Also, breakfast was not included at this expensive hotel it would have been an extra 60 for both of us. Had we known more, we would have selected a closer, cheaper hotel with other breakfast options. We had no breakfast as a result.

Otherwise, a wonderfully organized and beautiful tour.

Our tour in Kyoto was a disaster . It was one tour guide for 80-100 people with no earphones and microphone!! It was like looking at photos with no explanation. What a waste of time. Worst experience.

The Mt Fuji portion of the tour was great! Great tour guide and great itinerary The place selected for the included lunch was outstanding! Best meal we had in Japan. But the Kyoto portion of the tours was unimpressive. The tour guide was in a hurry to the point of having to run to catch up to her. Many folks just gave up and returned to the bus early. Although she had some type of voice enhancing device, it was difficult to hear her. The size of the group was too large! The place selected for the included lunch was a tourist trap. Subpar buffet lunch on the second floor of a local gift shop. The room was too small for the crowd and the staff encouraged patrons not to stand in line and just go and cut in line. It turned into a mob! Terrible food and service.

We spent more time on a bus or train than viewing the sites. While the Mt. Fuji tour was shortened due to weather which of course is out of the tour guide's control, the activities we did do were shortened. And, we ended up taking the train that was 4 hours instead of 2 hours to Kyoto which got us into to Kyoto at 11:00 pm versus 8:30 pm. If I had know that, I would not have booked the nicer hotel as we didn't get to enjoy it or the location the hotel was in. Also, the tour in Kyoto included 4 temples once you have see about 2 temples, there are other sites that would have been more interesting. In addition, they gave us 2 hours for a terrible cafeteria style lunch in a neighborhood where there was nothing to really see so we waited about 1 hour and 15 minutes of doing nothing until our bus came to take us to another temple. If I had understood this, I would not have selected this tour. Very disappointed.
