“ Absolutely wonderful experience with Bonnie ”

My 24 year old son and I spent a wonderful day with Bonnie in Takayama and Shirakawago! Bonnie is super-friendly, knowledgeable, organized, and fluent in both English and Chinese. She was flexible and went above and beyond to help us with things like making dinner reservations in the next town we were going to. I can’t recommend Bonnie highly enough- I wish she were our guide throughout our trip!!


Thank you so much for your positive feedback. I am glad that you like the tour arrangement and also the tour. It is a enjoyable day with your family. I hope you and your son enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any help in Japan! Hope that we can meet again in the future! Wish you and your family all the best!
