If you love onsens, then this tour is for you!

I would like to say that Joe, our other guide, was great! He was funny and upbeat throughout.

Visiting and experiencing onsen and sauna after a long day of cycling was one of the most luxurious trip I ever had. The Japanese food and sake was also wonderful especially having them with other fun cyclists. Our guide Eric and Soko was such a pleasure. I highly recommend this trip especially if you like climbing hills!

Wonderful route, fabulous hotels and meals, a great cultural insight into Japan. There were many positives to the tour. The choice of hotels was excellent (I loved the onsens), the route was beautiful, the bikes were high quality, and all the meals were delicious and plentiful.
