Far East Traveller Reviews - On The Go Tours

Here are some reviews from our past travellers to The Far East. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.

We enjoyed our guide Kaori so much. She was very knowledgeable about all the places we toured, was always on time and was very friendly. At times all the transportation of buses, trains and subways was very hard to handle at times. During certain times of the day there were very crowded. We felt like a lot of time was used with the transportation and other tours might have been included. ”

This tour is highly recommended to those who are looking to go to South Korea!

The only way that you would get to see the best parts is an all inclusive tour and I do not believe that going solo or with a couple by themselves is going to be worthwhile given that S Korea is so big.

It was a lovely tour group that I was with and the activities were amazing and I got some very good snaps!

There is a lot to do on the tour, and you are kept busy, so I do highly recommend it for others.

There is a lot of walking and some hiking in the tour, but that is well explained in the brochure. ”

The South Korean express tour was very enjoyable. It gave me a taste of Korea, so that I can return in future to explore more destinations. Don the tour guide was great, kept my self and fellow tourmates informed and answered all our questions. The day we visited Gyeongju was a public holiday. With the large amount local tourists visiting the city and attractions, road traffic was busy and parking was limited . Don managed all these pressures with good patience and professionalism . ”

The tour took us to many wonderful places. There was too much public transportation especially in Tokyo, getting to Mount Fuji and the day we arrived in Kyoto. I was expecting public transport but not as many as 7 different transports in one day. We were also walking about 7 to 8 miles a day. The reserved trains and buses were great as well as the luggage forwarding. Most of the breakfasts at the hotels had many options and the hotels were all clean and acceptable. The hotels in Kyoto and Takayama were the nicest. The tour guide was very nice but I don't think he had done this tour before as he could not make any recommendations for restaurants except telling us to go to the train station. He had to spend most of his energy on coordinating the transportation and making sure that everyone on the 3 combined tours knew how to return to the airports as well as purchasing and collecting entrance fees. He occasionally would offer some information on the sites but compared to the 2 other touring agencies I have used, his information on the history and the culture of the sites was very minimal. We were never given information on hiking trails at Lake Kawaguchi as we left early. We were never given information on seeing a cultural performance at the Gion Corner Theatre or going to a tea ceremony and the guide initially wanted to exclude Gion and Nijo Castle from the itinerary until a few of us spoke up. We had little free time since we spent so much time with public transportation. The guide did take us to a wonderful Okonomiyaki dinner in HIroshima and he also took people to a few things that were not on the itinerary. We loved Japan and the people and did have a great trip but it was quite exhausting. ”

We had a great time on our tour to Korea. Tommy Ryu was a wonderful & very informative guide. He is passionate & proud of Korea. We learned so much from him.

The accommodations at the CM Park hotel (3 stars) in Andong were comfortable EXCEPT that it did not have shower toiletries & the bed was uncomfortable & hard.”

Tommy was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the sites visited and the history behind them. He communicated well in English and made our visit to S Korea an enjoyable experience. Furthermore he was helpful with our onward connections and transport.

Having lived in Korea previously, seeing the country as a tourist was very interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Transport in a mini bus worked well”

Yumi could have made the tour more enjoyable. In fairness we had a large group, but she struggled to communicate (both instructions and information) to the group. We were constantly asking each other what she had said as only the people closest to her heard what she said. Perhaps choosing quieter places to address the group mould have worked. Also she seemed to get quite irritated when people asked for clarification. Having said that she was pleasant and knowledgeable about the sights we went to.

Public transport required a lot of walking and in some cases a private bus would have made more sense.

The hotels were of a good standard but rooms were exceptionally small in some cases”

I absolutely loved this tour! This is my second tour with On the Go and I really liked this one. I loved the "local's perspective" and affordability of using public transit instead of a coach bus, the variety of things we did, the downtime and special, hidden extras that our guide Toshi took us too (including surprises not included on the tour itinerary, that Toshi took time out of his day to take us to), and the fantastic opportunities to do things I would have never done on my own, like the onsen and traditional inn.

I will say though that this tour needs to be marked as Highly Physical. The amount of walking (10+ miles on every single day of the tour), plus loads of stairs and hours of standing thanks to the subway system, made this tour quite a challenge!”

Our Land of the Samurai tour in Japan was one of the best holidays we have ever had. In just 10 adventure packed days we got a real sense of this wonderful country. From start to finish the organisation was spot on. We were met at the airport by Louis who accompanied us to our first hotel and provided our travel cards and some excellent initial tips by way of introduction to Japan. The following day we met our main tour guide Masa who must be given full credit for the success of our tour. He was knowledgeable, considerate and well organised. He is a true asset to the company. ”

Memorable Japan

Japan, what a country and the Japanese are so respectful, helpful and kind. ‘Our world’ could learn from it. The trip went very well, well organised and under the fantastic guidance of Mashira, our tour guide for the Tokyo to Takayama trip. He went out of his way all the time to answer questions, explain the sites, their history and much more. He also guided us seamlessly through the efficient national network of transport. The hotels were all well positioned within the cities and at Lake Kawaguchi, from which we had an excellent view of Mount Fuji. Having Takayama in your program can be recommended, as it gives another impression of (rural) Japan, after you have visited the (busy) cities. Every part of the program worked, leaving some free time. Some of the food was included, but on those days when it wasn’t, there was so much choice and shops near to the hotels and with good value for money in many cases. And, we had a bit of the cherry blossom.

Thank you for the most enjoyable time and memorable trip. ”

We had a private tour for South Korea and it was amazing. We had great tour guides. Our main tour guide Stephano was great. We spent so much time with him and learned a lot. We were lucky to have Young as our tour guide in Jeju Island. She really showed us the whole island and made the experience so much fun. These tour guides made our trip memorable. ”

This was one of my two favorite group tours than I did with you! All the people were so kind! We were friends since the beginning and finished family at the end. Before starting the tour, the local company created a WhatsApp group that helped a lot our communication, all the messages were clear, the times to meet, and allowed us to sharing photos in the moment they were taken. I am really happy for the whole tour, the accommodation, the food, the activities, the places we visited, the options they gave us according to the flexibility some people needed.

Ari, the guide was one of the best than I knew! She is experienced, and kind, and funny, and you could count on her!!

Your local partner The Dragon Tours does know how to organize a tour in South Korea. Congratulations for them!! ”

The group were completely disconnected. The local company didn’t start the tour promoting good relationships between the members. They didn’t create a WhatsApp group. That complicated the communication, made less clear the messages and the times to meet, and prevent for sharing photos in the moment they were taken.

Kaori, the guide was very kind and respectful but she lacked giving recommendations about places to go to eat, or buy anything. She was less experienced than I expected. She doesn’t have the leader personality for guiding 18 people through the crowds. Tokyo public transportation was crazy and uncomfortable, too many destinations for few days. The rest of the transportation was increíble good and clean. I loved the bullet train.

Hotel Metropolitan Tokyo Marunouchi, Hotel Around Takayama and Nishikinoyu Jimotoya (the traditional Japanese house) were amazing, Ibis Styles Kyoto Station was really awful.

In Hakone: having bad weather the itinerary should have had the flexibility for doing something that did matters instead of fulfilling the schedule with no purpose. Too difficult for Japan? Maybe you should think of changing your local partner. ”

Incredible trip!! I had a blast.

Also, too many trains - we should have used more buses.”

There was nothing wrong with the tour but comparing it to other tours we have done with OTG ie Egypt, Turkey, Morrocco which were out of this world. I didnt feel overall I learnt as much about Japan as I learnt about other countries. I dont eat Asian food but that is my preference and no reflection on the tour. Yumi was not in any way bad, but I'm comparing her to Momo, Lale and Yunis who were brilliant. She did help us with information we asked about extra things to do in our spare time that we had planned. The accommodation overall was okay but the Tokyo accommodation (i think it was Yaesu hotel) was terrible (room was so small) we paid for an upgrade. We stayed before and after the tour in Ryumeikan Hotel in Tokyo - one of the choices you guys offer and this was much better. I think taking ppl to the museum in Tokyo on day 4 was a waste. It should be something they can do on their own in spare time. Just a waste of a day. so many other things that could have been done. I love museums btw this was just flat though. Lake Kawaguchiko was awsum and a very authentic experience. ”

Masa our guide was excellent. Overall the tour was very good, would have liked more free time in Tokyo and Hiroshima but overall was all good. The hotel accommodation was good apart from Tokyo, we were OK with the room being small but the mattresses were old and very uncomfortable and the cleaning staff were not considerate of our belongings, my T-shirt was ruined by bleach when I left it to dry.

We had a few people in our group who were slow and this did impact on our free time, particularly the lady who used a wheelchair for part of the journey and we were often waiting for them often. Masa our tour guide was informative, always answered our questions, looked after us really well. Couldn't have asked for a better guide.”

We would like to let you know that our guide (mrs) Feng was awesome. She went above and beyond for our 10yr old son, who was really worried about going on this trip. He was made to feel a real part of the group and he loved all of the historic facts that were given by both Feng and the local guides. We enjoyed all of the sights and joined in all of the activities, even riding the bike on the city wall. This is our 1st time travelling on a guided tour with him and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. ”

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to China. We saw so much and learnt so much about the country's history. The trip was well organised and planned. A few things had to be changed because of the Nations holiday but we got to see other things instead. We found all the tour guides to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

Excellent tour, everything went seamlessly. Lisa was very helpful and personable.

Only thing that could have been improved was more information/advice on what to do during free time. The recommendation was usually the hotel restaurant or restaurant across the road; whereas, I preferred the idea of going into the city centre and exploring a bit more. ”

Xian was one of the stand out destinations with the cycle on the walls and the visit to the Terracotta warriors. We also did a lot of walking around the city and really enjoyed it.

We thoroughly enjoyed the organised boat trip and cycle tour around in Yangzhou.

Overall, the trip lived up to everything I thought it would be and more.

I enjoyed the tour very much. China is such a remarkable country. I had no idea how much I would fall under its spell.

James, our tour leader, is a remarkable man. He was the perfect host. He got to know us and understood the needs of each of us. He possesses a wealth of information on culture, history, politics, the economy.

Andrew was our local guide in Xi'an. Like James he is proud of his cultural heritage and was happy to respond to our questions.

All hotels were fine. The train sleeper - well, it was what one would except. It was ok.

The food … what can I say? Everything I ate in China was brilliant.

I would return to China any time I could, the tour provided a great introduction to China.

James, Andrew and Matthew are invaluable to the success of On The Go Tours. ”

Our tour was self guided. We had a local guide in Tokyo and Kyoto for one day each. Both guides were knowledgeable and fairly accommodating for things we wanted to see.

Prior to arriving in Japan there was a gap around the timing and details of our transfers but once we received our train tickets and itinerary that gave me comfort.

The hotels were in awesome locations and were all lovely and had their appeal. We added a few tours ourselves including sumo wrestling, go-karting, sake tasting.”

A well paced tour with 2 expert local guides we were in good hands during the tour. Lisa organised everything perfectly in Beijing, from being collected by the bus at every point, and organising the group at Beijing Train Station, her level of professionalism was first class. As we left the tour group in Xian, we would like to thank the local guide Andrew, who surprisingly arrived to meet us at 3am to travel with us to Xian Airport and assist with us checking in for our flights to Vietnam.

It was an awesome sight and although I didn't walk it as much as some, I was happy with what I achieved. I loved the quaintness of the accommodation at Changjuyuan hotel which also gave us great views of the wall and mountains surrounding us.

I was very impressed with almost everything about this tour and the guide, Lisa, who was excellent. The pacing of the holiday was just right for me - we covered a lot of ground but that was exactly what I was hoping for. I was also happy about the ratio of group activities to free time for individuals . Again, that ratio seemed spot on to me.

The only minor quibble was about the two/three visits to local factories (Silk factory, Jade factory)

I'd highly recommend the tour. It was an excellent and fascinating introduction to China and I wish I was still out there!”

I really enjoyed the tour. Most of the arrangements and organisation was very good and our tour guide Yuki was amazing, super polite, patient,really took care of us, went over and above in making our holiday so enjoyable. From the daily well written with cute drawings on her daily schedules, tiny treats she bought us, to the knowledge and expertise in the way she took us through all the public transport so efficient, I give her top marks.

My suggestions are few ....taking the bus in Tokyo was the most inconvenient. There were long waits and buses were overcrowded. Train rides were fine and agree the most efficient but local bus rides in Tokyo could have been on a tour bus instead. If the tour could add a few alternative like visiting The monster cafe, teamlab, robot restaurant, just to give it a mix from temples and museums and considering the varying age groups and interests.

On the hotels, Kyoto and the traditional were good and location of hotel accommodations were very good , Tokyo hotel rooms were very tiny and I a single occupant found it difficult so can only imagine how the couple's managed but I guess it's usual and the location was really good so its a plus.

Overall I did have a great holiday. I enjoy using your company on your escorted tours and will continue to do so. Thank you very much and please share our sincere appreciation with Yuki.
