Good experience but could have been better

Reviewed by: Deepali Prabhu, 2019/11/17

It was a good experience for us visiting Mount Fuji and Hakone. The weather was perfect and we could see Mount Fuji clearly. We started at 7.45 from our hotel but left at only 9.15 from Hamamoutchi bus terminal. A lot of time was spent in picking up guests from each location. By the time we left we faced a lot of traffic. We didn't get enough time at each stop with about 45mins at 5th station, 15 mins cruise and about 30 mins at the Ropeway. So for a total of 90 mins of actual sightseeing we spent about 8.5 hours in bus (including an hour for lunch). Hence I think time management could have been better with only 1 pickup location at leaving Tokyo at 8 to avoid traffic. Hamamoutchi should be completely avoided.

Apart from this, the tour was good. The bus was comfortable. The guide spoke English well and provided a lot of information. There were 2 options for lunch, vegetarian and chicken. The lunch was good and the staff at the restaurant was very friendly. Overall it was a good experience but they could have managed the time better.

An enjoyable Day

Although it was cloudy so we could not see the top of Mt. Fuji most of the time. Our tour guide did his best to show us the mountain and the lake, with a cable car view.

Definitely a over hype tour

- i dont have any complaints about the tour operator/tour guide as such
- veg lunch was good and all

issues were around
- travel times between the sites is high so you end up spending lot of time in travelling rather than on sites
- mount fuji is big let down, nothing much really. just a snow covered mountain
- boat trip is only for 15 mins, so it ends before you know it
- ropeway was also so so. fact that there were clouds on top didnt help as it got so cold that nobody could even go out and enjoy any scenic views

i wouldnt recommend this tour as there was nothing special. the only saving grace was the return shinkasen ride which is a very unique experience. but this can be done standalone also without any tour. dont waste 11 hrs on this when you can do so many things within tokyo.
