A fantastic & fun tour. Through our guide JP we learned so much more about Rajasthan & India than we could have ever hoped for. Informative, interesting with a touch of humor thrown in.

We stumbled upon the Wild Frontiers website while trying to sort out a 3 week trip to SE Asia at short notice. We had no real feel for whether it was a good idea or not (we hadn't had recommendations) but once we engaged with Nathan by phone it rapidly became apparent that there was a genuine desire on the company's part to provide a genuine service where the travelling customer is at its heart. We were supported throughout the process of tailoring our tour until we agreed upon the final itinerary (which we were extremely pleased with when we followed it on the ground). The behind the scenes planning was excellent and carefully thought through, meaning that all the joining up of different elements of the trip were entirely seamless. When a completely unexpected issue arose in the middle of Vietnam, Nathan was quick to handle it and resolve it much to our relief. We would thoroughly recommend them and the team (and Nathan in particular).

We had been planning a trip to southern India when we saw the Gill Charlton/Wild Frontiers article in the Telegraph - almost exactly what we were thinking of. WF were so good at accommodating the changes we had in mind and putting the itinerary together. It worked seamlessly from end to end and we had a magical holiday. Thanks Guys.

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.
