The best of Japan
Headed for Japan? Make sure these highlights are on your bucket list.
Walk the lantern-lit streets of traditional ryokan and practising geisha. Kyoto is the capital of Japanese culture - and a true work of art. Find a tour.
A stunning national park, home to Japan's most iconic view. Mount Fuji sits atop striking scenes of green woodland, crystal clear lakes, and inviting hot springs. Find a tour.
Ever-evolving skylines, cosmopolitan corners, and neon-lit streets. Tokyo is a city headed for the future. But look closely for kabuki, sumo, tea, and sushi - tradition is everywhere. Find a tour.
An enchanting island of rural charm, just off the coast of Hiroshima. Home to the floating torii gate of the Itsukushima Shrine, and stunning views of Mount Misen and the Inland Sea. Find a tour.
Our Signature group tours place local interaction and authenticity at the heart of your travel experience.
For our Signature range, we maximize your days with excitement and then bring you home to specially selected accommodation with extra character, convenience and comfort, whether that's a five-star river boat on the Nile or a traditional Japanese Ryokan. Accommodation in this range features comfortable western standards, air-conditioning, WiFi and, where appropriate, a swimming pool.
On a Signature holiday, you’ll be escorted throughout your trip by our qualified English-speaking local guides who’ll show you all the must-see attractions and even the lesser-known sights.To further add to that special touch, the group sizes in our Signature range are mid-sized: small enough to be intimate, but large enough that you can bond with new friends over common interests.
On our Tailor-made trips, we give you the flexibility and choice to do things just the way you want, all alongside the great service we’re famous for.
Whether you’re travelling solo, with a partner, family, extended family or as group of friends we’ll customise your arrangements to suit your exact needs and budget. Our Tailor-made trips are designed for your needs and you don't have to join other travellers like you would on a group tour. Just tell us what you’d like to see and when you’d like to go, and we’ll design the perfect holiday for you.
The Tailor-made itineraries we've suggested are designed to give you an idea of what you could do with us, they can be booked as they are, or adapted to suit you. If you'd like to change any aspect of the trips you see, please get in touch. If you aren’t quite sure of what you want to do, that’s no problem either! One of our experienced travel consultants can make suggestions then together you can tweak until it’s the perfect fit.
