Super engaging day trip around Nikko with Jack!

Jack is a very experienced guide who is very fluent in English. He is very knowledgeable with rich cultural and historical details to share throughout the trip. Jack is also very sensitive to my tour mate’s and my needs. Very engaging and comfortable to spend the day to Nikko with Jack. I especially enjoyed the details he shared at various tour sites, which is something that we will never know if we tour on our own. He is also very flexible to run an itin based on our interest and time we have for the day. Thus, thank you very much Jack! Really enjoyed the trip with you…

Thank you PS. Thank you for your nice word. In fact I really enjoyed the day myself with you. Hope you enjoy staying one of luxurious hotels in Nikko. Jack

Nice visit to Nikko

We had a very nice day at Nikko, thanks to the arrangements by Jack. Jack speaks very good English, and his arrangement of booking and driving a rental car (covered by this fee) made transportation around for the trip quick and simple. And it was a chilly day, so we were most grateful for this. Jack showed us the highlights of the impressive Toshogu shrine, and then to a delicious soba restaurant for lunch, before driving us to the beautiful Churenji lake. We then visited 2 very different falls - Ryuzu and Kegon falls. Breathtaking! We requested a relaxed pace and a mix of highlights of Toshogu shrine with some nature, and Jack delivered that wonderfully. Jack san, ありがとうございました!

Thank you for your compliment, Ken. I really had a good time with you and your wife, of course your sister. I learned quite a few from you guys. Appreciate you chose me. Jack

Amazing Day!

“Greedy” tour (& Jack) were absolutely amazing! With Jack’s guidance, we were able to see so many wonderful things in just one day - mountains, lakes, waterfalls, snow, monkeys, shrines, temples, Imperial Villa… Also worked in an terrific lunch (Soba). Jack’s English is impeccable. He’s very knowledgeable. Engaging and humorous. it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. My wife and I HIGHLY recommend you spend your day in Nikko with Jack! Be Greedy!!!
