So much fun for an organised trip

The trip was well organised, fun and full of activities. It was paired with enough time if you want to chill and do your own thing.
Our guide,Vitor, was marvellous and full of energy. We had viewed cherry blossoms, snow monkeys, had sushi making class, soba noodle making, origami class and the best samurai activity/trainings. Travelling within places were organised smoothly, which was wonderful because we do not understand the local language. The food included by the trip was generous, specifically when we had all you can eat BBQ.

  • Great activities and places visited.
  • Quad share accomodation.
  • Breakfast provided at the accomodation mostly sugar loaded.

Just do it

This trip definitely deserves the name „Japan Adventure“. It is an amazing mix of activities, city life, countryside, party, and free time. In just about 2 weeks you get to experience so much without feeling stressed. Intro has put the itinerary together very thoughtfully and assembled some unique accomodations. I feel that I got a very good first impression of the country, its culture and food.
The size of the group (12 in total) was just perfect and made it easy to travel around. I felt very comfortable in the international group with lots of other solo travelers and had an amazing time and endless fun with some newly found friends.
Our group leader Vitor was super fun and great company at all time, making sure everybody had a good time and felt included throughout the whole trip. He also always gave us tons of recommendations for the free time in our Whats App-group. Can’t recommend this trip enough – just do it 😊

Go to Japan!

Going to Japan with Intro Travel was hands down one of the best decisions I've made. They took care of all the planning, transportation, lodging, etc and that made my trip planning so easy. You'll visit and experience temples, shrines, night life, city life, the luscious countryside, snow monkeys, bamboo forest, delicious food, and so much more.
On top of that, our amazing guide, Vitor was super fun, friendly and charismatic, he definitely made the experience better.
I cannot recommend this trip enough.

  • Almost no planning required
  • Plenty of free time for exploration
  • Tour group was full of cool/fun people

Japan Tour 2023

I originally booked this tour in 2020 but due to COVID had to wait until 2023 to go, but it was absolutely worth the wait! It was a fantastic tour that has a nice mix of group activities and free time, the accommodations were all fabulous and I really felt I got the most out of my time in Japan without any stress. Our group leader Vitor was also a highlight of this trip, he was so friendly and helpful and was determined to make sure everyone had a great time. An absolutely amazing trip which I highly recommend!

  • Fantastic activities
  • Nice accommodations
  • No stress

Amazing Japan trip!

I did my first Intro tour in April 2023 to Japan. It was amazing and so well organised. Our tour leader Michelle was fantastic - so knowledgable and so much fun. She really made sure that we all had the best experience possible.
I would really recommend the Japan tour. It is a perfect mix of cities and smaller places and the activities and day trips are excellent. Michelle also made loads of great recommendations for our free time.
It was so lovely not having to worry about organising trains, accommodation and activities and everything ran so smoothly. The group was really fun and a perfect size with lots of other solo travellers. I would definitely go away with Intro again!

Incredible Japan Trip

Just finished Japan Intro and had Michelle as our tour guide. The whole trip is incredible and really well put together.

There’s a perfect amount of activities and free time and plenty of opportunities to get to know the rest of the group.

Despite the amount of travelling involved it never felt rushed or stressed and Michelle was excellent. The whole tour exceeded my expectations!

A personal highlight was the samurai experience and the gion walking tour. It was a perfect way to end the trip in Kyoto.

Highly Recommend!

I travelled with Intro to Japan in April 2023. This was my first experience travelling with a group and a tour guide so I had no idea what to expect. Safe to say it has exceeded all of my expectations!

It was superbly organised with a great range of activities. Our group was lead by a knowledgeable team leader, Michelle, who became like a big sister to us all, making sure we had the most fun whilst getting us everywhere safely and also making sure we got the most out of our trip by suggesting things to do in our free time.

I would highly recommend this type of trip to anyone who wants to experience the best of what Japan has to offer without the hassle of organising it yourself.

Thank you Michelle for the BEST memories!

  • Met amazing people
  • Incredible Samurai experience
  • Saw the cherry blossom trees

Honeymoon Japan Tour

We did Japan in April 2023 for our honeymoon, we wanted a stress free time that showed us the best bits of Japan and Intro Travel did not disappoint!

Our Tour Leader Michelle was incredible, so friendly and helpful and just a fab person 🥰

Before we flew, we had a few questions as we were travelling after the tour onto a beach stay which Intro happily helped us with, Michelle even helped us sort our onward train tickets to the airport for after the tour.

The tour has the perfect amount of activities and free time, so you felt a good balance and wasn’t rushed around or worried about not getting to do any additional things you wanted. There was also no pressure to attend everything although you wouldn’t want to miss anything anyways. The amount of people on the tour was just right, there was no struggles with getting everyone on trains/buses or in places to eat/drink/dance.

This was our first time travelling with Intro Travel but wouldn’t hesitate to do so again!

  • No stress with transport
  • Heavy luggage is couriered around for you most of the time
  • Michelle - our tour leader!
