Arlene Santos and her team at DAI Travel in Nashville, TN, planned and flawlessly delivered a 2-week trip to Japan for my family and me in April, 2016. We gave Arlene a few ideas on which cities we wanted to visit and the kind of things we liked to do and she put together a terrific bespoke set of accommodations, activities, and in-country travel arrangements that moved us masterfully from one friendly, knowledgeable English-speaking guide to another across 4 cities – Tokyo, Kyoto, Hakone, & Takayama -all with the stunning beauty of Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms as the backdrop.
Highlights included a private sushi-making class in Tokyo, sake tasting in Kyoto, and an unforgettable stay at a ryoken in Hakone. The success of this first encounter with Arlene has ensured that we will absolutely turn to her for our future travel planning needs.
