Essential JAPAN TRIPS
“The whole tour was incredible. We saw so many amazing things and places, and had a lot of fun while doing it. Much of that was due to Evan. He made everything much easier, and a lot of fun. Even when plans didn't work out due to unforeseen problems, he always had a backup plan ready to go, some of which wound up being even more fun! The trip was an amazing experience, and I will definitely be wanting to return to Japan sometime in the future. I will, without questions, be recommending PacSet to others, and hope that I can do another tour with them in the future.” - Nick Kuras, Pawprint Pathways 2017
“I was really scared coming on this tour cause I had done no research of Japan, and in all reality I came so my Best Friend wouldn't be alone. That being said: Evan and Christine were just outstanding! They quickly showed use their true outgoing selves (especially Evan!). I just felt like with them starting the show (Evan) we all started showing how we all truly are as well. This let us, well at least me, make some good friendships. Evan and Christine were very knowledgeable over pretty much everything! From whats in the food that we ate to history from over the town we were in /or passed by! Those 2 guides were what made the tour ever more enjoyable!” - Toree Johnson, Taste of Japan 2017
“I like how the tour uses public transportation, not a rented bus to chauffeur us around. This let us have more first hand experience with the country and people. Tour guides were friendly and helpful. The food was amazing! I hope I come back to Japan some day and I would definitely travel with PacSet again.” - Flora, Taste of Japan 2017
“The FanFest Tour 2018 was everything we expected it to be, full of discoveries, fun, and yum! Full of new experiences, walking, walking, waking, heat and humidity and shopping!!! Taking the tours advice, we left our expectations at the door and it helped make our vacation what we wanted it to be. The guides were helpful, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Not to mention great traveling co-horts. I can’t say enough great things about the tour or PacSet except that I would highly recommend them to everyone and anyone that would want to take a trip to Japan and would not bat an eye if we plan to come back again.” - Rodney Teves, FanFest 2018
“It all started back at AX. I believe it was either 2015 or 2014. I don't remember, ask my wife, she knows. Anyways, I was shopping and looking at the interesting booth and I saw the PacSet Tours booth sitting there with many cool pictures of Japan. I was engaged at the time and I remember talking to my wife about where to have our honeymoon. So after spending 10 minutes at the booth, I knew right then and there that this was the place I wanted to go for my honeymoon experience. After showing the booth to my wife, we decided PacSet was the way to go. Everything was planned precisely on how we wanted to do our trip, we wanted go carts, BOOM, our guide made reservations. It was my first international tour and it was amazing. We hit amazing spots, ate amazing food, and our guide knew everything in every area. He even packed medicine, etc, etc in his backpack for our every need! I'm so impressed by this company my wife and I are definitely coming back for another tour.” - Donavin Tuiteleleapaga, Japan Holiday 2016
ANIME/POP CULTURE TRIPS
“I loved the integration of anime into actual culture of Japan. It was a very relatable segway into Japan and for myself, it could not have been done better.” – Brandon, Third Impact 2014
“The moment I try to find the words to describe PacSet, I always feel like they aren't good enough. I could say, "amazing, spectacular, wonderful, awesome," but they feel so diluted. You don't just get a tour, you get a new perspective. You gain meaningful friendships, and a sense of camaraderie with your fellow tourists that come out of nowhere. Once you're a PacSet tourist, you join a very special and unique group of people that you will never forget. Thank you all SO much for all of the hard and dedicated work you do to make the exceptional experience you provide so many people.” - Kyle Bongard, Anime De-Tour 2018
“I cannot praise my experience with the tour any higher. From the first step of the process to the end, everything went better than I could have ever dreamed.” – Aaron, Animated Summer 2015
“PacSet offers lovingly hand-crafted tour, taking you through parts and places of Japan that even locals might miss. No matter the circumstance, the guides do their utmost to keep you safe, happy and having fun. This is a fantastic tour service, and I will be traveling with you again!” - Nicole Most, Kyushu Hideaways 2017
“Kyushu is beautiful and despite the rain this trip, was amazing. I don't think I ever got a chance to even get hungry with all the amazing food we were eating. I 100% want to come back. The hat tricks that were pulled to ensure everything went smoothly were amazing. With PacSet you know that you're safe and you'll get to where you need to go typhoons be damned. :) <3” - Anonymous, Kyushu Hideaways 2017
RELAX MODE TRIPS
“Had a blast and would wholeheartedly recommend PacSet to folks looking to visit Japan on a guided tour. Our guide, Val, really made the experience special, she was patient, understanding, and very kind. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.” - Sofia, Sun and Sakura 2018
“The overall tour experience was great. I felt I got a fairly good taste of what Northern Japan had to offer. Our tour guide (Evan) was very knowledgeable, accommodating, nice, entertaining, and probably a host of other positive adjectives that I can’t think of right now.” – Eric, Soul of Autumn 2014
