Meal fee, shuttle ship fee, and rental car fee are not included in the guiding fee, you will pay those on-site in cash.
We might not be able to observe inside of the churches because of the church condition(Sunday MASS, special event, etc...).
Please remember, we cannot resist the weather, sea conditions such as typhoon, strong wind and high wave. Because of bad weather the tour would be cancelled or restrected partially.
You don't have to book the all 4days of the tour. If you book the entire tour(4days), you can cover most of GOTO high-lights spots.
If possible I recommend you to book all 4days tours. You can book partially (1 to 3 days), but it depends on which island. Because GOTO islands are composed of many islands, and there are poor transportations among islands and to and from the mainland NAGASAKI.
Please ask me first.
Yes, you can change the starting port to NAGASAKI port. In this case, we need to change the tour itinerary, too. You need to coordinate with me before your booking.
Yukihiro our tour guide is very friendly and knowedgable so far with all things that we’ve asked him, especialy about history and localities. We also felt comfortable with him as our tour guide.
Dear Geraldine, I am so happy to be evaluated greatly as your comment. I feel sorry that we couldn’t go Mt. Inasa outlook because of unexpected construction on the route. Please try again at night in the future, you will be able to observe the one of 3 greatest night view of Japan. Hero
Great tour with Hero. Anything you'd ask, he replies. 4hr is really jampacked and no problem with communication. :)
Thank you very much for high evaluation, Cessy ! This time was short tour, so couldn’t visit many places. I hope you to stay Nagasaki longer next time. Hero
We had an awsome full day with Hero, he was literally our hero. He fixed a custom tour at our request, following alot of the coast and scenic spots around Kjukushima, Sasebo, and Omura bay. His local knowledge is excelent and his English is good. Expect a jovial host, which is always smiling, and a dash of humor. Will recommend! ? ?
Dear Marius, Thank you very much for great evaluation. I appreciate early evaluation on the way of your tour. I could take you many places as many as I could, but made you tired because of long driving. I drove more than 600km in a day!! Actually this is my first meeting with Norwegians who talk to. During the tour I could have a lot of conversation with you so that I understood lot about Norwegian culture, terrain, food, climate, custom, vegetation and so on. I have never been to Norway, but now I am so interested in your country. My view of knowledge was expanded. Take care and enjoy rest of days in Japan. Hope to see you in Norway someday. Hero
He plan a great schedule. He picked the locations i needed to see. His English are good, easy to communication. he also kept me on schedule. Excellent service provided by Mr.Yukihiro. I will highly recommend Yukihiro. Thanks
Hello Hieng!! Thank you very much for great evaluation for me. Next time I will show you around Unzen and Nagasaki. There are many good natural Onsen in Unzen. Okinawa is my another hometown. When you visit Japan again, free to ask me. Yukihiro
