Good arrangement/ nice guide with fruitful information.
Yuko did a fabulous job guiding us around Miyajima and Hiroshima. Highly recommend this tour!
Although the trip was a drizzly day, the arrangement with the tour company, the tour representative and tour guide were very accommodating. They made sure we were by their sides when moving through the busy train stations, at the train's platforms and awaiting taxi service. They even offered to cover part of the taxi cost back to our hotel at the end. Mariko was very patient with questions and made the trip very informational and fun. She was very knowledgeable.
It was a beautiful day and a wonderful trip. Tour guide very enthusiastic.
