Really friendly and helpful!

Saki was great to have as a guide. I had a personalized tour and she took me all around Nagoya and showed me some of its sub-cultures. She also gave a lot of information about Nagoya. She was prepared and got all reservations aligned for a smooth tour. All in all, she gave me a fantastic experience.
