Amazing. It was simply amazing. We couldn’t cover all the places we went to all by ourselves. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Overall, the trip was great with timely departures and a great guide in Marie. Can provide for some additional time @ Enoshima as it may be tough to reach up to the Sea candle and then walk back down. Would definitely recommend this tour from Sunrise as an ideal day trip from Tokyo

The sites which are visited are very interesting and there is a good mix of activities fro the tea experience to the large Buddha and the island.

Hiro was an excellent tour guide who kept us on track while showing us a Shinto shrine where we had a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and time to take pictures of the beautiful garden. The bamboo forest was spectacular as was the temple. The Great Buddha was amazing and the traditional Japanese dinner was tasty even for those new to Japanese dishes. The best part of the trip was exploring Enoshima Island and the spectacular views of the gardens, temples, shrines and market. A little time to shop for traditional Japanese gifts was a plus. A true Japanese cultural adventure.

I loved this day tour - I love this history of the Shoguns and Kamakura was the political birth place of the shoguns and this tour covers some of the history. We experienced a tea ceremony at our first shrine and it was such a special experience watching the precision of the tea making process. Unfortunately due to a pre-existing leg injury I was unable to climb the stairs for the second shrine but I enjoyed my quiet time in the gardens whilst waiting for the rest of the tour to come back Our group then moved to Kamakura to see the giant buddha and it was amazing. I loved the tour in that we got some time to take in the sights in our own time. Our tour guide Hiro was fantastic - very knowledgeable and interesting - very gentile and respectful. She made sure that everyone on the tour was looked after and gave plenty of time for people to look around at their own pace. Our group then went for a traditional Japanese lunch and it was delicious. I think my own suggestion would be a little more information about what we were eating but this was a minor issue. We then took a drive to Enoshima Island - it was great weather and we were right on the Pacific Ocean. Again due to my leg I was unable to go up to the shrine but there was plenty to see and I had plenty of time to enjoy the great weather and I got some lovely gifts to take home. I can thoroughly recommend this tour It was a great way to see and experience many aspects of Japan.

Wish we could spent more time in Enoshima. Ninety minutes was too short, maybe leave earlier or eliminate one other tour.

Kamakura was very impressive and this day trip was really worth it. Mika was a delightful and knowledgeable guide

Shima was a great tour guide! This allows you to see a maximum amount of Kamakura in a short amount of time. Yes, you get approximately 30-45 minutes per temple/shrine, but if you don't want the hassle of organizing this trip and the transportation on your own it is worth it. The lunch was okay, but there was plenty of things to try and plenty of other places to grab snacks as well. Would take again.

It was lengthy and only Kamakura was significant. I wouldn’t do it again. The shorter trip would be better. My teenage daughters did not like it at all!
