    The tour was disorganized and completely unprofessional. Both tour guides spoke and understood English very marginally.
    I have attended good tours in Japan, and here is what they do. Note that this tour did none of these;
    1. The tour starting point was poorly communicated. I had to make two phone calls (US charges) to find the bus and tour guides.
    2.Tour guide introduces themself by name and shares a brief background
    3. Tour guide gives you a printed summary of the sequence of stops and where to meet after each stop
    4. Tour guide shares the bus number
    5. Tour guide accompanies the group to the scheduled attractions and shares information on the attraction. The guides on this tour sent us off on our own at each attraction after providing a time to return to the bus.
    6. Price of attractions is supposed to be included in the tour price, but at the Boudoin temple (after the tour guide had disappeared) we all had to pay extra to view the Buddha (which was the main attraction).
    Finally, the tour guides were kind ladies but absolutely clueless on what to do. The local tour operator is at fault here.
