Important Information

The sightseeing galley boat Esperanza is under maintenance in mid February. Instead, smaller boats will be used.

In high season (New Year holidays, Golden Week and public holidays) it's possible our favored hotels will become fully booked. If your booking request comes late during peak season we can still offer this experience so long as we can secure a guide, but you may need to pay a different price for the hotel.

In that case, we will advice you of such additional costs at the time of booking and you may choose to top up your payment or have the request cancelled and refunded.


What you need to bring

Overnight belongings. If possible, bring a backpack instead of a suitcase.
