We invite you to read what others had to say about their Tokyo experience.
Everything about this experience was fabulous. Five-stars to Marathon Tours & Travel across the board.
As the non-runner of our group, I found the experience so amazing and memorable. Thank you so much Nicole and MTT staff for an outstanding job, making my husband's dream of completing the six majors come true. It was an absolutely wonderful time and it was wonderful to meet up with other runners from previous excursions (London) here at Tokyo.
Nicole, as the coordinator for this trip was always fantastic. She responds quickly if you have concerns about the whole ordeal during the pre- trip and post- race. Well organized. I have used MTT since 2015 and they never fail from your expectations.
MTT staff are a treasure for those of us that have used them. I think that this is my 5th trip with your company and every one of them has exceeded my expectations!
Wow! Kyoto was an incredible highlight of the trip. Everything was fabulous! The hotel, food, tours and especially our tour guides.
Traveling with Marathon Tours & Travel is the way to go for international races. MTT provides a nice balance of scheduled events and free time. And everyone on the tour is either a runner or a family member/friend to a runner--everyone has similar interests and it makes it easy to connect and relate to each other.
Nicole was amazing throughout this looooong process from Tokyo 2020 to 2023. I personally ended up throwing some curveballs her way with flights and issues, and she handled them quickly and helpfully. I cannot say enough about how thankful I am to her and Marathon Tours & Travel.
Marathon Tours & Travel is the premier tours group in helping runners navigate the expo, start, and finish of a marathon along with touring the local sights and sounds of the host location.
My favorite thing about Marathon Tours is that you put the runners and their health, safety and comfort as your number one priorities!
This is just a quick note to remind you of the incredible services that each of you offer, and I myself have just been so thankful for all of you over these years. As a wife, mother, professional and runner you have brought such peace of mind to my life. I am so thankful to know that when it comes to the one activity of me that brings me joy, I know I can count on all of you for help when I want to do something adventurous!
Thank you for all that you do to make people’s dreams come true and support them even when they just have to wait a bit longer. In the end, Marathon Tours and their agents are always going to be ready and willing to make sure that each person gets the best of the best! I just wanted you to know that for some of us, our experiences with marathon tours holds deep meaning in our lives because of all the goodness you have contributed.
Was a little nervous traveling somewhere that English is not the primary language. MT had everything covered so it was not an issue. Fellow travelers, staff made this a wonderful experience. Extension to Kyoto gave me a better feel of Japan than being in the big city (Tokyo). Well worth the extra time and money. And who doesn’t like a trip with Jacqui on it??!!
I can't thank the MTT staff and the Abbott people for the support, encouragement and recognition.
MT staff are helpful and made it such an easy trip. I appreciate the organization and that everything was taken care of. I think what I enjoyed the most was meeting other runners and making new friends that I hope to connect with on future trips and future races. The hotels were great with excellent locations too.
The volunteers on the race course were amazing. MTT staff were great too. I appreciated being with a group to take care of me, as I traveled by myself.
The extension to Kyoto was fabulous. The transfer to the train station and to Kyoto was very smoothly executed and I always felt like we were in good hands. Our guide - Harumi - was phenomenal - a true gem. She was so informational and really, really funny - she truly made the trip. I loved the itinerary and the various temples we saw.
I thought that Nicole and Jeff and the the entire Tokyo Marathon group did an excellent job in sending out an email and asking athletes for their questions on the trip and addressing it in the Conference call, and further following it up with an email so that everyone that missed the opportunity to participate that day and time still had the ability to benefit from it. It was very proactive and forward thinking. Kudos to you wonderful people!
I received my Six Star, so hard to beat the feeling of accomplishment. The commradere of the
group, being so well taken care of/supported by the Marathon Tours staff and the Japanese
people themselves....are all tied for next best.
I love meeting fellow runners from the Marathon Tours group, great camaraderie, great stories,
great fun! Insights on the course, start area, recognition of Seven Continents Club and AbbottWMM Six Star finisihers,
you truly feel like a community when you travel with Marathon Tours!
Every Marathon Tours trip is unique in its' own way. The Park Hyatt was incredible as was having the chance to experience Tokyo in general. The post race gathering at the Park Hyatt was also outstanding. It was a wonderful experience.
Loved the tour activities: shrine & temples, tea ceremony, drumming ceremony, etc.
Meals were varied, interesting and so good!! Loved the bullet train. Thanks Nicole for getting us all
there and on time! A stressful day, but well done. The shuttle to the airport at the conclusion of the
tour was awesome, and so appreciated. Nicole told us to trust her...it will all work well, and it really
Communication with the Marathon Tours and Travel staff was excellent. Nicole was very
responsive, and incredibly helpful. Her emails with trip details were thorough and easy to
understand. I was nervous about traveling to a country that I didn't speak the language, but felt
much better with all of the detailed information that was provided.
One of the things I appreciate most is that Marathon Tours plans
everything, all I have to do is show up. I love the people on this tour - staff and other travelers!
How do you manage to put together such a nice group of people to travel with? I love how
knowledgeable the staff is about the race and the destination.
