A Recent Review of this tour

We booked our tour at the last minute but will hold the memories very dear. We went to Kamakura. My wife had never been to Japan and had a million questions that Eddy sat patiently answering. This tour ranks as one of the best. The thought and work Eddy puts into his work was amazing. He had stacks of documents that took us from early BC to current times. One of the best guides we have encountered.
