There was major...
Tiffany_J, June 2023
There was major miscommunication between agency and Viator. My family waited for an hour for tour guide to arrive at pickup point. No one showed up. It's difficult, especially since we are foreigners first time in Japan. The agency thought we cancelled the tour through Viator. This was a terrible experience. We will never book through Viator again.
Wonderful trip to Nikko
Donna_M, Sept 2022
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind. The trip was fantastic and absolute highlight of the trip. It was perfect to go by train, it made for a full, but not too long of a day. Everything was beautiful and very enjoyable.
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Dear Reiko-San and Donna-san Thank you for your kind message. It was really nice to meet you. I also learned a lot from you like the natural beauty of Japan. I haven’t realized how amazing it is when I see it all the time. Please come to Japan again. Best regards, Yumiko Sano

Sad to say my companion was tired of walking thus we cancelled this and went on a Tokyo city tour instead. It was exciting and see all around Tokyo city by public transportation, foodie experience and shopping
Lake and beautiful temples
Tinatin_N, Feb 2020
It was a very good tour! Guide Mr. Yoki was very nice and gave us a good review of the area. Nikko is must visit when in Japan! Historical shrines and temples are beautiful as well as nature.
Outstanding Tour Guide
VANESSA_H, July 2019
I have done many tours in Europe and now a few in Japan using Viator. Hands down our tour guide to the BEAUTIFUL city of Nikko - Yoki Nakajima has been the most punctual, knowledgeable, and understanding guide. Rain didn't even put a damper in our tour. He was very well prepared and ever brought us each a little clear folder with ready materials on all the sights we were going to visit. Nikko was one of the most beautiful places we visited in Japan even though it rained most of the day.
Response from Host, July 2019
Thank you very much for your generous review. I am really glad to know that you left Japan with a good memory of Nikko. Your review really encourages me to further improve my skills to become a truly professional guide. My goal is to make the customer's tour a unforgettable, happy experience of his or her life. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Yoki Nakajima
