Thank you Alison for all the work you did in organising a fantastic holiday . Hakuba was an unbelievable place to stay and the two weeks I spent there , it will always be one of the best holidays ever .
The staff at the Gondola Lodge we very helpful the rooms / amenities were always clean and being opposite Gondola Adam made it so easy to hit the powder first thing (after breky)
Only 1 problem I should have gone to the JHN counter on arrival for Hakuba transfer (bit of confusion at the airport)
Top shelf Ski Travel Company
We just got back from our ski trip to Hakuba this morning and it was amazing! We all had an absolutely fantastic time and everything was extremely well organised. The only slight error was that we requested western beds and we got Japanese beds but they were very comfortable and we survived intact!
Thanks again for all the organisation on your and Carly’s behalf. It was a blast!
Came back from our trip a couple of days ago.
Had a great time. The hotel room was a bit small but everything else was great, especially the organisational details. All went precisely as planned.
Next time we’ll stay longer to make the very long tiring trip worthwhile.
