The Dragonfly Tours experience was definitely a positive one. I've been wanting to go to Japan for quite a few years now and it was even better than expected. I can safely say that I will return again, but in the mean time I'm going to try and take some Japanese lessons. I loved the whole experience, from the sights to the culture and traditions. So when I'm back in the country (3-4 years) I'll defo give you a ring so we could meet up and have a few rounds of sake

Japan is like an onion, and you need someone guiding you while you try to peel it as your eyes water. Dragonfly is the perfect host, with Russ being a Westerner who is fully in love with Japan and who lives there not as an expat, but as someone who the French aptly describe as an autochtone. Seeing the country through his eyes was wonderful and truly unforgettable. We would not have thought of a better introduction to Japan.

I wanted my visit to Japan to be the holiday of a lifetime, so I spent some time researching all the available tour options on the Internet. I was drawn to Dragonfly Tours as their tour group numbers were limited to 8 and I thought this, combined with their flexible approach to the itinerary, would help to make the holiday a more "tailor-made" experience to suit me. As I am a vegetarian, I thought Japanese dining might be a difficulty but this was never a problem & I enjoyed some of the best meals ever. The holiday surpassed all my expectations and Russ's wealth of local knowledge and his anecdotes together with the tour's regular use of public transport ensured we came away with a much deeper understanding of the country, it's people & history. I would sum up the holiday in one word. "Outstanding." I wish you both all the best for the future. Take care of yourselves

An excellent tour, at the right pace and which encompasses all that Japan has to offer.

For many years I have wanted to go to Japan in cherry blossom season and Dragonfly Tours helped me live my dream. It was a stress free holiday as everything was done for me and if I wanted advice or wasn't sure about something there was always someone to help. My holiday was everything I dreamed it would be, thank you Dragonfly

Thanks so much for the photos Russ - they were great. I promised you an endorsement for the website if you want so here goes: Our family had the great pleasure & privilege of having Russ as our tour guide on a private extended version of the Ancient Highways tour. We had an amazing time - Russ took care of everything, warned us of the dos and donts of being in a different country, adapted to our needs and wishes and generally made sure that our trip was perfect. I would not hesitate to travel with Dragonfly Tours again and have already highly recommended it to many people. Thanks again Russ for a sensational family time we will never forget!!

Dear Russ, A sincere note of thanks for providing us with the perfect introduction to Japanese life, culture and history. We felt we achieved so much in such a short time. Small group tours are definitely our preferred way to travel now as your tour opened our eyes to so many interesting and challenging options, without the high cost of some packaged tours. Our holiday with you gave us so many wonderful memories, not to mention a lot of laughs - we hope that our performance with you in the karaoke room never makes it on to the web! Perhaps the best recommendation we can make is that we want to do it all again, with you - exchange rate permitting!

Hi Russ, here’s some soundbites for your testimonials: "I would definitely recommend Dragonfly Tours for anybody considering visiting Japan. My wife and I went there for our honeymoon and Russ arranged a semi-guided tour specifically for us with a full itinerary for ten days. It was a great set-up -Russ would spend a couple of days with us in each new city helping us orientate ourselves, while being shown every great attraction, interesting hidden little side streets, the best places to eat etc. We were then free to explore by ourselves for a couple of days before moving to the next city - and Russ was at the other end of the phone if we needed his advice. This was exactly how we wanted our honeymoon to go and Russ and his team arranged exactly that. Russ was friendly, knowledgeable company throughout, and it was great fun spending time with him. Thanks again guys, it was a blast!

We really enjoyed our trip to Japan, and thanks again to both you and Mary for making it so special - the walks and the train trips were amazing, and the ryokan made us feel that we were in the real Japan! George is busy looking up on Google exactly where we were - he'll no doubt be e-mailing you with the height of the place at Hakone! Hope the rest of the season goes well for you, and as we said we will be happy to be used as a testimonial any time - your organisation worked really well! Cheers

Thank you for such an enjoyable time in Japan. Seeing that we only had 7 days to see something of Osaka and other 'bits' of Japan, and that other operators did not cater for our specific needs and given time constraints, Dragonfly Japan Tour came up with the best possible options. What impressed us was the flexibility afforded to us by Russ in all the pre-arrival communications (which incidentally, were helpful and fast); even on tour, when we had extra time, Russ suggested 'extras' that helped enhance our daily 'adventures' (like our surprise stop in Kobe). The information provided on tour was illuminating, relating to restaurants, transport options, historical facts, shopping areas, cultural practices and traditions; however, it was never over-whelming. We're now back in Brisbane, amazed that we covered so much (but at our own pace!), ate such a range of interesting food and shopped to our hearts' content, all in a space of a week! Russ, who met us at the airport, showed us around Osaka, Nara, Himeji etc, and farewelled us in Kyoto, was very pleasant company, unobtrusive and yet always there when needed! It was great having someone so fluent in Japanese as well as English; a plus point was the good sense of humour! We'll have no hesitation recommending Dragonfly Tours to our family and friends (who incidentally, loved all the fabulous presents we brought back!)
