Who loves our tour?
Excellent e-bike tour in the Hida countryside
We had a wonderful time on this e-bike tour through the countryside around Furukawa. Juri was a brilliant guide: friendly, informative and charming. We learned a lot throughout the day about the local lifestyle and culture as we travelled through the beautiful and peaceful scenery. The e-bikes were in excellent condition and were hugely helpful in reaching the top of a nearby mountain, from which there are stunning views across the Japanese Alps. The attention to detail and hospitality we encountered throughout the day cannot be faulted. Highly recommended, and thank you again Juri!
Fun and informative
The Hidden Gems e-bike tour was great fun. It was a brilliant way to see both the local countryside and also the town. Our guide Juri was very knowledgeable, and not just about the tour but also all the other questions we asked her (from student loans to politics to attitudes to marriage!).
Best experience on our 9 day trip thru parts of central Japan
The 5hr Panoramic/Private e-bike tour was exactly what I had hoped for on my 5th trip to Japan. I've wanted to meet & connect w/ local people in order to better understand the culture & share in their own experiences. Initially I booked the 2.5hr flat tour thru the countryside, but upgraded at the mention of a new tour our guide offered. Shinji, our local guide spoke perfect English; we stopped to visit of a couple local farms, enjoyed a light snack & tea made from the fresh spring water & visited a shrine in the hills. Most of ride was flat thru country lanes & backstreets while the last part was a little more challenging for myself w/ a 6km climb up the mountain. However, the e-bike made it easier considering I am not a highly athletic person & biking up a trail we had all to ourselves was the best part. At the top, the view was amazing even though it got a little cloudy. We had a delicious lunch provided by a local chef & were able to relax & chat more with Shinji before returning to the town. This is the perfect tour if you wish to stray away from packed tourist sites & learn about the local culture & people. We enjoyed the experience so much that we're considering a return in the spring.
