Mie was on time meeting us at our hotel. She was knowledgeable about places of interest and able to clearly explain us the importance of Japanese culture and beliefs. She was caring and compassionate with our young family members. She was considerate got us back to our hotel safely. She saved us some money directing the correct bus route to take back to our hotel and informing us about the hotel pick up schedule to avoid spending a lot of money in taxis. Thanks.

Mie's English is very clear. She adjusted to our schedule very well. It is always nice to be met at the train station when one is not sure where we are going. We would recommend her for anyone taking an independent tour.

Mie was knowledgeable, flexible and pleasant. She gave us a great tour of Miyajima, which was great fun, and Hiroshima, which was enlightening and heart rendering. She accommodated our special requests, gave us insights into Japanese culture and was very enjoyable to have as a guide.

Very nice guide.

We booked a full day and spent it seeing the shrine on Miyajima and then the Hiroshima A bomb site.

This is probably too long a time, as most of the Hiroshima site is the museum, where you do not need a guide.

Apart form that Mie was nice, accommodating and knowledgeable, and a pleasure to speak to.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your comment. I also enjoyed the tour with you! I hope you enjoyed your whole trip in Japan. I'm also looking forward to having more tours with you again.
