Guided tour of Shirakawa from Kanazawa

My husband and I will be staying two nights in Kanazawa in April and wanted to take a day trip to Shirakawa and possibly Takayama. Does anyone know of a tour guide/company that can take us to Shirakawa from Kanazawa on a guided tour? Thanks in advance for your help.

1. Re: Guided tour of Shirakawa from Kanazawa

If you are independently oriented as to use Tripadvisor, you'd do fine by visiting Shirakawago alone (Shirakawa is White River, adding -Go is necessary to imply the village; there are many Shirakawas in Japan including a rather nice city in Fukushima Prefecture - but probably only one Shirakawago as a village).

Staying in Kanazawa for two nights is fine but I can't help but think that it's better to stay one night in Kanazawa and another in Takayama (arrive in Kanazawa, visit Shirakawago in between, and depart from Takayama - without backtracking).
