My husband and I and three friends took a cruise from Shanghai to Tokyo and decided to book a few private tours as opposed to going through our cruise line. We found Shore Excursions Asia online and I cannot say enough good things about them, right from when I initiated my enquiry to the tours themselves. Tracey, my initial contact, was responsive (responded to e-mails within 24 hours) and her summary of tours, costs, and inclusions/exclusions were very clear. The English speaking guides and drivers on all 3 tours were very knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. Mark took us to Shifen where we had a Shifen Sky Lantern experience, among other sites around Keelung. Masumi took us to the Ishigaki Island Stalactite Cave which was amazing as well as other stops in the area. Aki made sure that we had a great experience in Kyoto, taking us to the Nicole-jo Castle, helped us choose our lunch in the Nishiki Market, along with other stops. She made this tour very enjoyable despite the rain. We really enjoyed our time on these three tours. I give Shore Excursions Asia 5 stars. I want to say thank you again to Tracey, Mark, Masumi and Aki who were very instrumental in helping us have enjoyable cruise port experiences. I highly recommend this Tour Company to anyone who is looking at doing private tours off of cruise ships.
