Excellent Tour And Guide
Nov 2019 • Couples
Tour was for small group and we ended with our English-speaking guide just for the 2 of us. (4 other Japanese tourist in the same tour had another Japanese-speaking guide). The places visited was good but it was our tour guide, Julie, who was excellent and friendly, who brought made the tour more alive with her sharing interesting stories about the places we visited. She also brought extra heat packs for us.
