We had a wonderful day with our guide Keiji. We went across to Miyajima Island first & enjoyed walking around & then going up in the cable car. The view was amazing. Then we went back to Hiroshima & visited the most beautiful gardens ever & then the Peace Park & Memorial Museum. We really appreciated Keiji’s local knowledge & him explaining everything to us. We only wish we had longer to spend in this beautiful City. Thank you Keiji, we really enjoyed our tour with you!!
Dear Wendy, How have you been? Thank you for a good reputatioh and admiring me. I also had a wonderful time with you. I hope to see you again. I wish all of you every happiness. Keiji
Calm, professional, helped us get through a number of bus and train transitions. Always looking out for the group and very attentive. Good interaction with everyone. Wonderful itinerary, and excellent information. English a little difficult to understand, but content and vocabulary excellent. Could speak more slowly and carefully. But that did not get in the way
Dear Bob, Thank you for the great reputation. I'm going to make efforts to improve my English to let customers understand my English. I hope to see you again. Keiji
Very helpful and made sure we are all ok
Dear Esther, Thank you for a good evaluation. I hope you enjoy your trip in Japan.l Keiji
We were disappointed only with Keiji's lack of English as he tells us he is an English Teacher and for a licenced guide he wasn't very forthcoming with information, we found it a bit like pulling teeth trying to get some information from him, he was very quiet and not very talkative about the places we were visiting. We think we could have done this tour without him as we didn't learn anything about the places we visited that we wouldn't have learned on our own. However, he was a pleasant man.
Dear Helen. Thank you for the advice. I 'm going to study hard to satisfy guests. keiji
