We have travelled with this Company on numerous holidays and never had a complaint. The hotels we have stayed at have been clean, comfortable and staff friendly and efficient. Tour guides are good and very informative about places visited and the history of these places,
Got back today from visiting Ireland and the Giants Causeway and again the holiday was excellent, the Station Hotel in Letterkenny was clean, comfortable with friendly staff and Brian Dodd certainly made sure we had a good holiday. Thank you to all concerned.

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.

      About Newmarket Holidays

      Surrey, England-based Newmarket Holidays, in business since 1983 and one of Britain’s largest independently owned group tour operators, runs escorted coach tours in the UK, Europe, North America and elsewhere. They also arrange rail trips and cruises. 

      What Makes Them Stand Out? 

      With more than 30 years’ experience, they provide well-trained tour managers to accompany each trip and offer good value. 

      Who Travels With Them?

      Newmarket Holidays has a heavily British clientele, mostly aged 50-plus. 

      Where Do They Operate?

      Coach tours cover popular regions of the UK and Ireland, continental Europe (primarily France, the Netherlands, Spain and Italy), the United States and Canada as well as a few in India and Southeast Asia. Sea--going cruises leave mainly from English ports and explore the Baltic, the Norwegian coast, and beyond, while river cruises focus heavily on the Rhine. 

      How Does It Work?

      Join one of their regular guided coach tours or put together your own group of 40 or more and organize your own coach tour. 

      Why Travel With Them? 

      They’re a dependable agency that offers a variety of affordable escorted coach tours to popular destinations.
