A GREAT day with Pancho, our guide, who planned the itinerary based on our interests and managed to time things to miss crowds + get best opportunities to absorb the experience! Itinerary sent in advance and was flexible to adaptation if required.( but it was perfect). Knowledgeable local guide Pancho made the experience so authentic and was very generous to kindly share his insights. It was a real pleasure to have him spend time with us.and provide context to our trip to hiroshima and Miyajima. Pancho had also sourced vegetarian / vegan restaurants for us. Interesting to learn about the sights but also general life from the guide. We wish we had more time to do another trip with Pancho, he was that good!!

Mr. Shin was an excellent host, knowledgeable (he has done his home work very well) and with good command over English language. He has dedicatedly shown us each important location and explained the background very well which has made this trip worthwhile for me and my wife. Thank you Mr. Shin for the trip and the gift, paper crane and the post card which we will keep with to remember this memorable trip.

Great to visit full day tour I recommend to before visit these city family must book from this app to avoids lots of free mindset’s
