Yasuko explained with grace and very elocuently the different sites.
Ines san, thank you so much for an excellent review. I'm really happy to enjoy my tour for all of you. And I appreciated your cooperation and trying to speak in Spanish. Enjoy the rest of the cruise trip in Japan.
Be prepared for some serious steps. We had cooperative weather, so got good visibility for Mt Fuji. The shrine was great, but be prepared to climb many steps! We'd love to go with Yasuko-san again!
Thank you Hy-san for writing a good review. I am pleased that you all enjoyed my tour. It was good weather for a view of Mt.Fuji. In the shrine, there were lots of steps, so I am sorry for being a bit tough. You would be back here in a different season.
We went on a half-day, guided tour of north/central Izu and can honestly say it was an amazing tour! Yasuko-san was a terrific guide who provided a very appealing itinerary that included, among other things, a tour of waterfalls and wasabi fields. She communicated with us on a regular basis leading up to the tour and readily accommodated us based on our interests and time constraints. She met us promptly at the train station on the day of the tour and assisted us in securing a chartered taxi ahead of time. Yasuko-san and the driver took us to outstanding and remote points of interest that we would’ve never discovered on our own. The Izu region is simply beautiful with an abundance of nature, charm, and history. Bottom line, we highly recommend hiring Yasuko-san as a guide. She was warm, personable, and very professional. Moreover, we highly recommend going with this company as they helped resolve an initial problem with another guide and subsequently referred us to Yasuko-san.
Thank you so much for an excellent review. I'm happy to hear you had a great time on my tour. There were few tourists on the contrary it rained, we could see more water from the waterfalls, too. I agree that our driver offered really good service, so I'll recommend other guides to use that. Thank you so much end enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.
Our group of 8 was taken good care of by our guide, Yasuko. She made extra care of all aspects of the day tour as one in our group has some mobility issue. Because of that, all of us still enjoyed our day trip around Mt Fuji. Yasuko even took the extra effort to take numerous pictures of the group. We really appreciate her efforts and her hospitality.
Thank you so much for an excellent review. I'm really happy to hear that you all enjoyed the tour of the Mt. Fuji area. We were luckily able to see a view of Mt. Fuji, too. Thank you for your cooperation in time management.
