“Almost ten years later, we still treasure our Japanese experience. A master of details, Connie literally MADE the experience. In those quiet moments now, I hear the clip-clop of wooden shoes on stone streets…I smile at the sheer delight of our daughter mesmerized by geisha’s playing board games with our son…and feel gratified that we were able to dine with Japanese friends whose experience with an American was a first; just as ours was with a Japanese.”

“Dear Elite Tours International. How can I ever thank you for the tour you put together for me and my family. We had a life changing experience and will be forever grateful to you for all the effort you put into making our vacation a trip of a lifetime.”

“To be able to travel through Japan and witness and experience everything not as tourist but as insiders and guests, made our trip so much more special and something we remember fondly to this day. Elite Tours International and Connie’s personal attention to detail made our trip one of the best we have ever taken and we can’t wait to travel with Elite Tours International again!”

“On my desk sits an eight-year-old picture of Connie, me, and Mieko, the wonderful owner of a beautiful Japanese bath house outside of Nagano. Connie took us on a trip to a faraway land and a foreign culture and made it deeply personal; I still think of the wonderful days we spent off the beaten path. From Tokyo to Kyoto, Zenko-ji Temple to the Tsukiji Fish Market, every day of our two weeks brought new delights. I couldn’t ask for a more perfectly planned vacation.”

“I spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Japan with Elite Tours International and Connie as my tour guide. Not only was she able to show us cultural and historic landmarks normally off limits to tourists, she smoothed over any difficulties which arose due to the language barrier with remarkable skill. Connie’s knowledge of Japan- the culture, places of interest and cuisine – are impressive and I look forward to traveling with her again in the near future!
