Wayfairer Reviews

What people are saying about Wayfairer

Elena Makarova

Perfect planning, perfect execution of our vacation, can absolutely recommend this agency to others!

Elaine Kottler

Superbly arranged holiday by Wayfairer Travel. Their knowledge and experience meant they picked superb and very different locations for us, all of which complimented each other but gave vastly different experiences. By booking through Wayfairer it meant we never had to think about any travel arrangements outside getting to our local airport! Would recommend anyone booking this type of holiday to book through them.

Jackie James

Wayfairer were given a huge challenge to arrange a 5 week holiday for us with some very specific places we wanted to visit. They were prepared to listen to our demands and also to advise on many things that we were unsure about. We stayed in 14 different places all together and the accommodation arranged for us was perfect. The car hire was also arranged for us and our itinerary planned in detail with maps and detailed driving instructions given.

Essentially, for a long complicated holiday we did not experience any problems and Wayfairer obviously played a key role in this with their prior arrangements. This allowed us to focus on enjoying the whole holiday, which is one of the best we have ever had!

Preferred hotels

A small selection of Wayfairer's carefully-selected hotels. All hotels can be changed to suit your requirements and budget


Iwaso Ryokan

Located on the small island of Miyajima in the tranquil Seto Inland Sea, Iwaso is a luxury ryokan offering Japanese-style rooms, hot-spring baths and traditional kaiseki-style meals.


Hyatt Regency

The Hyatt Regency Kyoto is a luxury hotel tucked away in the east of Kyoto, in the quiet and green district of Higashiyama Shichijo. This area was once home to the ancient capital’s imperial court, but today it’s a great base for sightseeing.

Décor is contemporary and chic with traditional details, such as antique kimono wall hangings and headboards, as well as the gentle glow from paper lamps.


The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon

The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon (also called The Gate Hotel Asakusa Kaminarimon by Hulic) is located in the heart of Tokyo, directly opposite the dramatic Kaminarimon Gate (Thunder Gate) at the entrance of Sensoji Temple - the city’s oldest temple and one of Asakusa’s most famous landmarks.

This modern and sleek hotel, set in a 14-storey former office block, has 136 rooms all of which offer incredible views of either Sensoji Temple or Tokyo Skytree.
