Luxury vehicles are part of the experience
1) Honda Insight Hybrid Sedan- This tour vehicle is what I use for small tours as it seats 4 passengers but only 3 comfortably. It is not a huge vehicle of any sorts but a comfortable ride and very fuel efficient as I usually average 22 to 24 kms per litres of petrol used. One of my objectives in my business and personal endeavors is to reduce my carbon footprint on this Earth and the Honda Insight allows me to do this, quite remarkably may I add.

2) Toyota Estima Hybrid Wagon- I use this tour vehicle for my larger tours and for customers that require more room for comfort as well as for bigger luggage requirements. It carries 7 passengers, 6 comfortably but of course 5 passengers will have more room inside as an ultra space option. It is a fabulous vehicle to drive and to be a passenger too, may I add. It has 4WS and is a Hybrid that averages 14 to 16 kms per litre. It has all the features and mod cons that anyone could ask for in a vehicle and I thoroughly enjoy driving this car at all times!

3) Occasionally i will get a request for a larger party and will upgrade to a larger vehicle like the Toyota Hiace. Check out the specs here:
This vehicle can seat up to 10 people comfortably and is very easy to drive and to get in and out of the vehicle. It is a true people mover but with a high degree of luxury as well. Please contact me if you would like to use this vehicle for your party and I will be happy to provide you with a quoted price for the tour requested!
At present I have no desire and inclination to use a bigger vehicle than those listed above. I have had many comments about how I could transport more people at one time but that idea really is not what I am trying to achieve here.
Tour Nagasaki was born out of the idea of giving people the feeling of being connected with the destination in every facet of the tour. Whether it be from the on board commentary, insights into daily Japanese life, historical and important information of each attraction, cultural experiences, Japanese food and drink tastings as well as personal opinions and facts about what it is truly life to live as an expat in this weird and wonderful country we call Japan.
It is my belief that only a Private Tour consisting of a small numbers of members can create this important connection that will stay with us for the rest of our lives!
