What people are saying about Nikko

I booked several tours and needed internet for the trips. Very user-friendly, just switch on and connect to the mobile phone - simple as it is. Note: Battery does not last all day (when the device is always on). I would recommend either switching off the device when not in use or taking a charger with you.

Excellent driver, calm, punctual and efficient. Beautiful, comfortable, clean car. Have a good trip, interesting tour. Recommendation for an excellent restaurant. At home at the moment. It doesn't get any better.

The ticket bought via get online is cheaper than buy at entrance. Good to buy online advance :) Need to check the shuttle bus/local bus schedule if you don’t drive. Only one or two buses per hour.

Picked up, switched on, connected - and done. The whole time of my stay in Japan I had perfect internet through the router.

Absolutely great!!!!

There is hardly any explanations in English!!!!! Fir that sort of price we expected more...
