Customer's Voice (1)

Yumiko was a fantastic guide. She was very caring and organized. She picked us up from my hotel in Osaka and travelled to Kobe by train. She communicates very well with my son talking about his favourite sport on the way. We went to a cruise and Maritime museum. My son liked it so much with the flight simulator and model trains. In the afternoon we took the cable car going up the Rokko mountain. The herb garden was so relaxing. Me and my wife enjoyed a lot while Yumiko was leading my son moving around the garden. The tour should finish at Kobe but she was so kind to escort us back to Osaka from Kobe. As she lived in Kobe, so she had to make another trip back home from Osaka. It was a wonderful day for my family. we highly recommend her especially if you are going as a family and have children. She is an amazing guide for families. Thanks so much.
