.. and the resultCustomer Testimonials
The walk exceeded my expectations. Our guide Danny -best guide ever!-was the driving force- working really with an excellent local guide Kiyomi. And excellent driver Sun. Their planning and where necessary-amendments to scheduling- was seamless in delivering a great, safe experience. 6 of the group of 9 were all late 60s early 70s- they paced us well. The walk itself was glorious- we walked through different and varied terrain. Lots of laughter and good fun. Danny boiled the billy for morning tea- always a treat. Lunches were good. Accommodation was fabulous- and again varied. Our two nights in Ichikawa Inn were a fabulous initiation into Japanese culture- a wonderful family run business who treated us so warmly and enthusiastically. The accommodation was fabulous- loved the variety. The last night in particular was my favourite- the architecture and philosophy of Shishi Iwa House in Kuruiswa was an extraordinary experience. It was a great finale to a wonderful week. Goes without saying that the food throughout was fabulous- the detail of the presentation also a good insight into Japanese culture. Overall- this was a fabulous walk (and we have done many around the world and in Australia) The company was recommended by a friend- she had said that it was the extra experiences added in to the walk that set it apart and I couldn't agree more. Loved our printmaking session and sake brewery tasting! And of course it was an unexpected bonus getting to meet and spend a couple of days with Mark the Company DIrector! Thanks to the team for a great time. We'll certainly be back for more adventures.
