Highly recommended, The tour did not disappoint but I wish we had more time at Lake Chuzenji, as the scenery was so beautiful it rivals the Zurich Lake. the town around Kegon falls was nice and quaint. The Nikko Toshogu was great as well.

Wow! Nikko was an amazing place to visit. Everyone in my family loved the tour. Aside from beautiful Nikko, visiting the lake and falls was an added bonus. We especially enjoyed the fantastic, delicious lunch! Would take this tour again in a second. Thanks Viator for making the experience one of the best in Japan!

Words cannot do justice to the beautiful place Nikko is. You have to be there to really experience it. This was my 2nd tour with the same company. They are really professional, guide was excellent. They take care of every person on the tour. I was a solo traveler but didn't feel left out. The shrine was amazing, lake was absolutely beautiful and the marvel of this tour is the waterfall. Simply amazing.

I highly recommend this tour for those who happen to be in Tokyo and do not have enough time to spend a night in Nikko. There are many beautiful sceneries to see and learn about the history of Japan. There was an uncontrolled incident that caused a delay on our trip. However, Yoko, the guide, handled that very well. She proactively worked with us to reorganize the itinerary and ensured that we saw most attractions. Despite the fact that we ended up spending more time on the bus than at the actual sites, I did not regret taking the trip. It was fulfilled and I learned a lot from it.
