(Jun 28, 2019)

We used Super Value Tours {now Supera Tours} for a trip to Japan in May/June 2019. Our guide, Miki, was excellent: very organized & super efficient in managing all our rooms, transportation, setting up meal reservations, very mindful of food allergies/preference, & giving directions to places of interest (in addition to the scheduled tour) or for transportation at the end of the tour. She was great in relaying history, culture, & whatever questions we threw her way.  We stayed at very nice hotels & had impressive meals which we probably would not have afforded on our own. The itinerary was great & we hit the major sites of interest plus a few extra fun stuff like dressing up in kimonos or as samurai, & a workshop on dyeing a keepsake with multi stencils.  We have now joined our friends as major fans of Super Value Tours & hope to use this tour group for trips in the future.

This is an excellent tour. The activities are well thought out and interesting. The food and accommodation were top notch. Eriko was very friendly and helpful. Will be looking at doing more tours with this company in the future for sure :)

(July 1, 2018)

The tour gave us a nice sampling of the Kanto area and some unique Japanese experiences. There was a nice balance between historical sites, outdoor activities, and shopping and dining. The hotels we stayed at were very comfortable. Eriko went out of her way to accommodate all of our needs. This was a great value and we enjoyed every moment of our tour.

This was our first visit to Japan so we chose the Tokyo Kanto tour. It was a great introduction to Japan. Our tour guide, Eriko, was excellent overall! She did a fantastic job making all the guests feel welcomed and comfortable. She was enthusiastic and worked very hard to make sure we all had a great experience. We also learned a lot about Japanese customs and traditions.....

My wife and I recently returned from the Japan Classics-10 day tour.  We had a great time!  Our tour guide, Eriko Kimura, is the best!!  She was well organized, always friendly, and extremely helpful to everyone in the tour.  She did a good job explaining the history, traditions, and customs of Japan.  She went over and beyond what you might expect a tour guide to do.  The hotels were very, very nice.  The variety of experiences was amazing.  Even sleeping on the floor on futons and tatami mats was surprisingly comfortable.  What a great variety of delicious, glorious food!

The tour is great for first-timers to Japan.  It gives you a nice variety of experiences and leaves you ready for a return trip.

Did I mention that Eriko is the best!!!
