If you are having doubts about booking a tour, don't--just do it! Japan is everything I could have hoped for. Singapore Air is one of the best airlines to fly with. Everyone is friendly and helpful.

Age range of the group was mixed, there were a few families, a few couples in their 30's. We made really great friends and enjoyed the tour guide.

Going to Japan has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, and this trip helped me fulfill my dream. I decided to take this trip last minute after finding the Groupon deal. At first I was skeptical, because the process was too easy. Fill in the blanks, pay for the trip, read your confirmation ...

I had a wonderful time during this tour, and it didn't even start off well. LAX withheld my luggage, and I didn't get them for 3 days. But Izumi-san made calls daily on my behalf for the status of my luggage. She is very knowledgeable of Japanese history and locations. The bus rides were very informative! And I loved roaming around Japan. The food was so good and reasonably priced! In short, thank you Affordable World for offering this, ...

This tour came up as a Groupon special. At first I was hesitant, because I had never heard of Affordable World, but I researched reviews of their tours, and found that their feedback was very positive.

Nariko was the very best tour guide- she gave us more than just info about where we went. She also gave us insights into current Japanese culture and daily life.

The only downside to this trip was that the food at the Tominiko hotel at ...

We went on the tour in June, 2015. The trip exceeded our expectations and we hope to go back to Japan and explore other parts of the country someday. For us, the reason for traveling outside our own country is to learn about the history and culture of the region. Thus, we really appreciated that our tour guide, Rumi Yamaguchi, spent a lot of time on the bus explaining the customs and culture of the Japanese people. ...

We enjoyed our trip immensely. Our guide was Noriko and she did a great job of informing us about our venues and arrangements. The hotels in Tokyo and Kyoto turned out to be a Sheraton and Westin.

It was a great experience from start to finish. Our tour guide, Rumi Yamaguchi, was excellent - nice and informative. Accommodations were great. I enjoyed the fact that our days with Rumi-San were generally done by the early afternoon, allowing us to explore our surroundings on our own. If I had to nitpick, the only thing that could be improved upon is maybe foregoing the tour to Ginza, and substituting it for something else, as I feel most of the ...

Our guide Rumi Yamaguchi talked about herself 80% of the time, even pass on picture albums of herself. I did not pay and go to Japan to learn about her personal life.

This was a great experience for me to explore Japan and learn about a different culture. Following are the areas I was not satisfied with: 1. Meals on Plane were not selected for me based on my dietary restrictions. 2. Tour group size was just too large (33 people) 3. Tour Guide did not take inside and explained things to us as a guided tour should. He explained things on the Bus before reaching the destination.

All the hotels were excellent, but I am rating the Tokyo hotel "good" only because of the location. It was quite far away from downtown Tokyo (Shibuya, Shinjuku, etc.) and it was also far away from the subway station, so those two things made it inconvenient to get around. Usually I wouldn't consider that distance too far to walk, but on the last day of the tour we had to pull our large suitcases all the way to the subway ...
