The Dragon Trip Review
“Had an amazing 2 weeks travelling Japan with The Dragon Trip. Both Juno and Chipa were amazing tour guides, making sure everyone was happy and having fun. Every day was full of fun activities and enough free time to explore on your own if you wanted to.
Had the loveliest group of people who made everyday loads of fun! A big thank you to Chipa who was always happy to help us by providing really useful recommendations and advice in every place we visited and was flexible to fit around the groups desires. Would 100% recommend The Japan Dragon Trip to anyone who wants to visit Japan.” – Taia Fry
