One thing you can say with confidence about Japan is you will never run out of things to see and do. It really does offer an endless stream of new experiences and fascinating sights. Everything you will see and experience is culturally unique and distinct from anywhere else in the world. Even a trip to Macdonalds in Japan is quite an eye opener. Teriyaki tofu burger anyone?

We have collected together some sightseeing experiences you may like to add to your Fully Tailored Trip or to one of our Self-Guided Adventures. Whether you would like to gain a little extra insight through the company of a private guide for a day, or fancy seeing the Tokyo skyline from the very different perspective provided by a helicopter, we have something for you.

We are always adding new experiences so if you do not see your interest listed in our experiences section please let us know.

8 hours private guide service


There is no better way to get to get that extra insight into a destination than to have the company of an expert local guide for a day. We are delighted to be able to include private guiding services in Tokyo and Kyoto. Your local guide will come to your hotel at a time you decide and take you on a day of sightseeing. We can design an itinerary for you or if you prefer, leave the itinerary open so you can have the flexibility to decide what to see and do. Your guide will have some recommendations of their own for you and these are sure to include some of their own personal highlights. As well as providing that extra detail about the sights you will visit, your day with a guide is also a great opportunity to learn more about every day life in modern Japan and to talk with a local resident.

All our guides are fully licensed by the Japanese Guiding Association and a day with a private guide is always a highlight of any trip.

The private guide service is included as standard on many of our Self-Guided Adventures and can be added to any Fully Tailored Trip

The 8 hour private guide service is available in Kyoto and Tokyo. We can also supply private guides in other destinations on request. Please mentin when contacting us about your trip

The private guide service is available 365 days a year. However, the number of guides is limited so if you are travelling at peak seasons such as Spring and Autumn or over New Year then please be sure to let us know well in advance.
