What people are saying about Taito City

Good value for money. We were very lucky to have an excellent full view of Mt Fuji the entire day. Among the places we went to Arakurayama Sengen Park was the best, Lake Kawaguchi came second, but it was a little too much time given to that place. Guide Ai was very polite; they provided disinfectant at the bus, which was very appropriate as I was a little nervous about going on a bus trip at the time of an outbreak. They changed the last stop to another village because the one on the original itinerary was temporarily closed. Overall it felt a little too long for such an easy tour, but I was satisfied thanks to great weather and perfect views of Mt Fuji.

Tour was fantastic! Naow was a great guide - informative, kind, great English, very helpful and went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves such as by being our personal photographer!! We were very lucky with the weather and had great views - would recommend checking the weather in advance to booking. Ps. At the lake, get bento boxes or the like from a 7 eleven and enjoy the views of the mountain whilst eating!! Better than the restaurant!

It is my first time in Tokyo and this was a perfect introduction to the city. Tomoko was great - showing me the old and the new - and giving me the background to the sites we visited. This was a great experience.

This was a wonderful day trip with extraordinary sights of breathtaking Mt. Fugi. Even though our driver Was limited English speaking, (private van tour) he was kind and caring beyond belief.

The spots our guide took us to we're amazing. We took lots of pictures and hope to go back and see a few more.
