We spent a wonderful day exploring Nagasaki with Hero! He was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We saw so many more sights in one day than we could ever have done on our own. Highly recommend Hero as a guide!

Rainy day in Nagasaki

Despite the weather we had a great day in Nagasaki with our private guide Hero. He went out of his way to rent a large comfortable vehicle for our group of 5 and rearranged the tour to accommodate the rain. He was very receptive and flexible and had a lot of knowledge to share!

Karen W.

Hi Karen, Thank you very much for the great review for me; I so appreciate it. I hope to see you at some other opportunity in the future!! Hero

A great first day + introduction to Nagasaki with Hero - looking forward to more

I'm very grateful for Hero's patience (I took ages photographing virtually everything everywhere), kindness, knowledge, helpfulness and sense of humour - it was a lot to take in but all very relevant to my novel WIP, so am delighted with his assistance for this very important research I am doing. Also very grateful he drove me back to the car park to find my lost wallet and showed me how to reach the train station in the morning. Also had some fun/funny moments too, so a nice bit of comic relief from seriousness of bomb and martyrdom sites.

Jane C.

Hi Jane, Thank you very much for everything today!! Ⅰ have rerieved several time today, I also realized the god’s blessing to us. Tomorrow is another day, hope to see you at the meeting spot smoothly. Have a good night! Hero
