We have come back from doing the 'In the wake of Scott and Shackleton' expedition in February/March and it was the most amazing experience. The scenery and the wildlife were just too amazing to try to describe. There was never a dull moment; whether on the bridge, on an island, going to one of the fabulously enriching lectures, or eating the first class meals. Although the ship did some rock'n and rollin it was comfortable and the Russian crew were great. Our thanks to the Captain who went out of his way to follow orcas and whales so that we could get a better look. As for the Heritage crew, you couldn't get a more helpful, caring, safety conscious and friendly group.
Thanks Heritage for the trip of a life time.

I had the trip of a lifetime, the boat, crew and expedition leaders were WORLD CLASS! We cruised from Papua New Guinea through the Solomon Islands (Melanesia) for two weeks. The wildlife was wonderful as the indigenous peoples were friendly - Cant wait to do another one of their trips.

We walked the self-guided Nakasendo Trail in October coordinated through Oku Japan. Everything was perfect, maps were easy to follow, accommodation was amazing and the scenery and walk was beautiful. The customer service from Oku Japan was above and beyond. We are already thinking about our next trip and will definitely be booking through them again. Well done Oku Japan we had a great time and apologies for not doing a review sooner.

absolutely amazing experience using oku japan for a 4 day kumano kodo trail self-guided tour (november 2016), the attention to detail and organization, the quality of materials, the fabulous experience on the trail and my evenings/mornings at local inns, and also visited the kumano kodo local office and spent some time with the lovely oku japan staff; I did underestimate the rigor of the hike, especially the opening, “passing through the womb” section of the trail, but managed to adjust, and it was a deeply moving, meaningfully, spiritual experience, much gratitude, highly recommended

Just returned from the Nakasendo Trail walking tour. It was fabulous! Our guide, Naomi, was outstanding and Oku Japan was an excellent company to deal with. I highly recommend them and would use them again without reservation.
