We travelled 5 day panoramic Europe trip and was really impressed by the service star tours have provided us.
I was never into travelling with tour companies but heard so much about star tours so thought of giving it a try and was not at all disappointed.
Our tour guide (Mrs Yesha) made sure to give us the most memorable experience and did everything best in her hands. I really appreciate her every effort which makes star tours different than any other tour companies. Our caption (Mr Sharma) driving was bumpy free which made our trip very comfortable.
I highly recommend star tours to everyone

Me and my wife booked a 7 day Europe tour and we were blown away with every details that went in to organize this tour.
From hotels stay to sites visit to restaurants and food, every detail was managed very well.
Yes it was all possible only when we had our tour manager Shaji and his trainee Vincent and the driver Shaun.
Great trip. Looking forward to another one soon.
Recommend to everyone and all.

We Travelled 3 Days Paris Trip With Disney & Our Tour Manager Was Anshu. Believe Me Guys ... Anshu Is Just Excellent In His Ways For Conducting The Tour. He Is A Very Helpful & Funny Guy Also Very Much Well Mannered. The Collection Of Bollywood Songs That He Played In The Entire Trip Was Lovely.

Regarding The Trip, I Swear You Won’t Find Anyway Cheaper If You Are Planning Of Your Own. Very Delicious Dinner In Indian Restaurant. Of Course The Breakfast Have Less Menu But In Europe You Can’t Expect More From Hotel. Regarding The Novotel Hotels ... They Are Just Awesome. Lovely Rooms With Clean & Tidy Environment. Staffs Are Very Helpful Too.

Star Tours Is Simply WOW For The Paris Trip With Disney & I Would Highly Recommend The Same.

Thanks

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 Star Tours

      Offering escorted and tailor made holidays, Star Tours is one of the most popular ways to find fully pre-packaged trips around the world.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Star Tours is a tour operator specializing in escorted and tailor made holidays around the world, but focused in London and Asia.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Groups of 20 or more attend their coach tours, or you can hop on a pre-planned tour with a smaller group. They do request a single supplement so this may not the best choice for solo travelers.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Star Tours has tours all over the world, but are well known for the London and Asia tours.

      Why Travel With Them?

      If you are interested in learning the history and culture of a new destination, on a tour led by experienced tour operators, and without the hassle of planning the logistics of your trip, Star Tours is a good option.
