We have had three more than wonderful travel experiences through Nature Expeditions to Tanzania, Vietnam, and Peru. The more exotic the location - the more their services and guidance are needed.

Our 3 week trip to Japan was wonderful and fun packed full of interesting and exciting sights and foods. We saw lots of shrines and temples, and people. The accommodations were top notch and the included meals were too. We loved the ryokans and enjoyed the osen baths-very relaxing. The Japanese gardens (especially the moss garden at the Hakone Art Museum) were amazing. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The train/car transfer assistants were on cue and seamless. We really appreciate the planning it took to coordinate everything.

My deepest thanks for the extraordinary job NEI did in organizing the ten-day trip to Japan for my wife, granddaughter, and me! We really gave you a logistical challenge, since our granddaughter loves anime, pop culture, and shopping; and my wife and I were interested in Japanese history and culture.

NEI came through with an absolutely perfect itinerary! The local guides in Tokyo and Kyoto were delightful and knowledgeable, organizing our days for the most efficient travel. And, they suggested shops, restaurants, and attractions that greatly enhanced our experience.

We also deeply appreciate that NEI suggested ways we could save money in Japan, while maintaining quality—for example, booking us with group tours to Mount Fuji and Nara.

The hotels were first-rate, especially the charming traditional ryokan Hotel Nanpuso. The dinner we were served the night of our stay was quite simply the most beautiful I have ever experienced.

During our trip, the private tea ceremony, and the lessons in drum, calligraphy, and sushi-making were marvelous, giving us insight into Japanese culture we couldn’t have gotten any other way.

Our experience represented yet another example of NEI’s superior quality and professionalism! We hope to work with you many times in the future!

From Nature Expeditions International

Founded in 1973, Nature Expeditions International (NEI) offers upscale wildlife viewing, "soft" adventure and cultural tours to over 25 countries on five continents. Each NEI tour offers a variety of soft adventure excursions, meaningful cultural experiences, a choice of lecture topics and first class or deluxe accommodations. All of our adventures are low intensity and elective, and may be replaced by cultural excursions, wildlife viewing or free time. Geared for active travelers over 40 (as well as for some children), NEI's distinctive tours offer a unique (and customizable) blend of adventure and cultural variety.

Based on years of feedback, we believe that NEI's tours compare favorably with those of our competitors in terms of the quality and creativity of our itineraries, their educational content, flexibility and the variety of adventure and cultural experiences offered.
