2-DAY TOUR OF TATEYAMA KUROBE ALPINE ROUTE / SNOW WALL, SHIRAKAWA-GO & HIDA TAKAYAMA WITH SEAFOOD BUFFET

Overall the tour was good and the tour conductor, Kawai had managed the entourage well. However, as this was a Japanese speaking tour, little English explanation was given and most of the time, the explanation on the history or details of Shirakawa-go was not given in English. The Seafood Buffet was fine except that we were only given less than one hour to gobble up our food, in fact too little time to really digest the good spread. However, the APA Hotel we stayed in was spacious enough and comfortable.

海鮮大餐很豐富白川很美

除了拉車很遠,我們有一個2歲的孩子,導遊很好,怕我們很擠幫我們加了一張床(前提是他說飯店可以的話),我真的覺得很貼心!床就算單人兩張也不是太小的單人床!很推薦很划算值回票價..真的很值得買這個行程

真的很值得好棒的旅行

集合點很好找,本來就知道大阪拉車到高山很遠,但這個行程非常滿意,不管是導遊還是翻譯員服務都非常好。好希望有更長的時間可以逛逛高山跟白川鄉,下次希望有3天2夜的行程在加入兼六園!
