I had an amazing time, of which I must congratulate you, Mickey and your team at Laurus Travel for making the trip so very interesting and enjoyable. The travel within Japan was painless – hotels, food, sightseeing, and friendly Japanese people was all excellent. I also found our group to be so interesting, full of information about travels to various countries, fun and so very friendly to me being “The odd man out” so to speak, making me feel very comfortable.

I am still full of memories of my trip to Japan of which I will treasure.

Many thanks for such a happy trip.

Best wishes,

Hi, Julius.

Kathy and I really enjoyed traveling with you in Japan. You and your colleagues did a great job organizing and conducting the tour. You personally are a deep font of interesting information and contributed so positively to the fun and success of our adventure. I am looking forward to receiving your ideas on future trips (as we discussed in Japan).

All the best.

Laurus Travel Japan tours reviews

After exhaustively researching tours to Asia we decided to book a trip to China with Laurus. Several months prior to the trip we added on the 13 day Japan tour as it was a short flight away. This back to back was a leap of faith as we booked with Laurus based on reviews, the website and our interactions with Laurus. We made the right decision! The tours exceeded our expectations.

The tour of Japan was wonderful. Our guide Addy stayed with us for the entire tour and she was terrific. She didn’t just provide information, she kept us interested and even used sang with a samurai puppet. We were on the go all day long. The hotels were quite nice and centrally located. Most of the restaurants were small local places and the food was delicious. Highlights of the trip included meeting with a geisha, who spoke perfect English, visiting Nara and seeing the sika deer and going to Shirakawa-go.

Without any reservation I would highly recommend Laurus. They are genuinely concerned that you are given the best quality tour available at a reasonable price.

As repeat customers (first to China, and now Japan), we recommend Laurus to other people interesting in exploring Asia. We have found the guides to be well-informed; the accommodations, excellent; and the service, high-quality. We were very fortunate to have met Julius Yan, the owner and founder of Laurus, on both of our tours. He traveled with us in Japan, and greatly enhanced our experience there. He is extremely dedicated to providing an outstanding and personal experience for his clients. He is well-versed in Asian history, and provided cultural and historical perspectives that added depth to our experience.

We arrived home yesterday safe and sound. Thank you for a wonderful tour in Japan!

Based on what we heard from our friends about their trip to Japan with your company last year we knew we had picked the right company in choosing Laurus Travel for our own Japan vacation. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Your company delivered as promised and then some. There is no doubt in our mind that we received superior value for our money. Upon checking with the others in the group, we learned that our fellow travelers all felt the same. Laurus Travel should be proud of itself because this is the opinion from a bunch of seasoned travelers who have gone on tours with a large number of tour companies.

Thank you again for a wonderful trip!

I am writing to thank you again for a terrific tour of Japan; Peg and I could not have been happier with any of the many aspects of the tour. We made memories that will last a lifetime (of course, at my age, that’s not terribly long)…

Thanks much,
