Went for day trip to see autumn foliage and was satisfied with the service. The driver drives smoothly, the car was clean and comfortable and suitable for quite large group.
The team really helped in planning the trip and gave a lot of recommendation.

Since autumn is peak season in Nikko, the traffic was quite heavy.
But the view is out of the world
Recommended one!
Decent choice, recommended with hesitation.

Nikko in the autumn is one of the quintessential voyages one must do in their lifetime! The experience was pleasant and efficient, however, the communication with the tour company and experience with the driver could be improved. The insistence of using WhatsApp was not appreciated. While it may be the tour company's and driver's preference, insisting that I download and use this app while on this tour was annoying. I don't use this app in the US and I am not familiar with using this app, so having to download it in Japan while sitting in the car and figuring out how to use this app on the fly was not appreciated.

The driver's attitude was a bit colder that I would have preferred for this line of work, however, he drove us very quickly and we made all of the stops as promised in the tour. We weren't dropped off at the main door of the Toshogu Shrine, but at the other shrines, so we were confused once we walked around to get to the "main" shrine. I would have preferred to have been dropped off at the main Toshogu Shrine.
