Just got back from 2 weeks in Vietnem and Cambodia with private tour organised by Insider Journeys. Never heard of Private Tours but if you want to explore, see, experience and understand a destination, then Private Tour is the answer.
Insider Journeys had drivers and guides waiting for us, took us everywhere and explained it all. They made this an awesome holiday that we have no problems recommending to family and friends.
Thank you

As it was my first time overseas I don't have anything to compare to but in saying that I had the best time ever. The whole trip was filled to the brim with culture, spirituality, humility, great food, the making of long friendships, terrific local guides who were so informative & just great people. I cannot speak highly enough of our tour guide Dave who went above & beyond with all aspects of the tour. Nothing was of any trouble to him (especially for me as I got a tummy bug in the middle of the trip) as he had a wide rang of ages to accommodate. I would not hesitate in recommending the Highlights Tour Of Vietnam to anyone and look forward to the day that I can return to do it all again. Thank you Insider Journeys...

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.
