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 Transsiberian

      Transsiberian began when its founder, Hans Lernidee, organized a Russian language course on the Trans-Siberian Railway in 1986, eventually leading him to found his tour company. 

      What Makes Them Stand Out? 

      Transsiberian aims to combine travel with getting to know a destination, through fascinating experiences and cultural and historical insights. Its founder and tour operators travel often in search of inspiring and fresh ideas for new tours. 

      Who Travels With Them? 

      Transsiberian tours are tailor-made for small groups, private groups, and individual travellers. 

      Where Do They Operate? 

      Transsiberian operates tours in several locations. Popular tours include the Trans-Siberian railroad, travel across Africa with Rovos Rail, riding the Orient-Express, and a railway journey through Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.

      Why Travel With Them? 

      Transsiberian presents classic destinations from a new perspective into less-familiar terrain. They add new tours each season and experienced product developers travel the world to research and develop innovative journeys. Local guides on each tour are familiar with the countryside to offer guests fascinating and authentic insights into everyday life.
