Japan Express

My tour guide was awesome. Made our time in a Japan stress free and full of excitement. I especially loved the Nara tour feeding the deers and all the local cuisines. Would be happy to have him as a guide in the future

Japan Express

Intrepid Japan Express tour packed a lot into the Tokyo section of the trip. Nikko slowed the pace considerably. Kyoto was definitely free wheeling. Be prepared for a last minute changes to start and finishing points to the tour, so leave pre and post tour accommodation, if any, with options to change as needed. If you need definite and leisurely meal times, this tour is not for you. If you want to experience different accommodation, not necessarily 100% comfortable or convenient, but different. Then you are good to go. Great country to visit.

Japan Highlights

We’ve just finished this tour and found it to be a fantastic way to quickly cover some major spots in Japan. . Our tour guide Nono was terrific - friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and well organised. Read the extended itinerary- this is very fast paced with lots of walking (sometimes with luggage) so you need to be reasonably fit. Mostly buy your own food but it’s quite cheap. The farm stay was a highlight. The hike mostly uphill but with some flat sections to recover in.

Japan is a wonderful country with so much to see and do. The Classic Japan tour fits a lot in and gives a great a good flavour of the country. Mariko our guide was outstanding. She was fun and went way above and beyond to make sure we all had the trip of a lifetime!

The Classic Japan tour was both my first experience of Japan and Intrepid. Loved the trip and very impressed with the organisation from Intrepid. We had a great group and our guide Mariko was absolutely excellent.
