Testimonials

Will definitely recommend this to others. The experience and knowledge of the leaders was exceptional! Having a group of likeminded people to share the experience makes all the difference. Ruby Mok, Japan Study Tour 2018

Auckland University’s Japan Study Tour gave us the opportunity to dive in and explore many significant and beautiful destinations, with excellent expertise and brilliant organisation and care.

Jennifer Hillas, Japan Study Tour 2018

Many thanks for organising and leading such a fabulous trip. For me it was a perfect introduction to Japan’s art and architecture. We had a great group and the leaders ensured that everyone’s needs were catered for.
Ross & Liz Jewell, Japan Study Tour 2018

This was an extremely well planned tour. We would not have been able to do the planning for much of it ourselves, and would not have known much of it.

Thoroughly recommend this tour giving a huge overview of Japanese and architecture in a small space of time.

I appreciated the security and care provided for the whole tour. The great organisation for getting to and from our accommodation as well as the programme which allowed time for personal undertakings. The Opera Tours were the highlight of my retirement years.

Smooth planning, plenty of advice and information, guides who were so knowledgeable, so energetic & so friendly. They expertly led us through 12 extraordinary days and evenings, every destination unique, ‘cherry picked’ for our education and delight.
Janey Christopherson, Japan Study Tour 2018

This is a wonderful introductory tour to some key architectural and artistic highlights of Japan. The variety I experienced on the tour constantly took me by surprise – from the most exciting modern architecture in Tokyo to the contemplative beauty of temples, palaces and shrines in Kyoto. I felt privileged to wander in magnificent gardens, relax in tea houses and get acquainted with many new culinary experiences. The organisation and tour leaders were excellent, ensuring we all had a memorable time.
Anne Manchester, Japan Study Tour 2018

I wish I had done a yearly trip of this nature each year of my adult life. I would be better informed and would have met so many interesting people as well.

This was a wonderful chance to view a world class art exhibition at the only available venue in the Southern Hemisphere, with input and advice available from an academic expert.
