This was a different tour with no set agenda. We had a brief chat about what we wanted to do and set off. It wasn't what we expected having just come off a set itinerary in a Kyoto tour. Nora was lovely and we got a feel of life in Hiroshima and definitely got our bearings on the key things to do.

My tour with Saúl was very informative and fun. He had only lived in Hiroshima for a year but could already tell me a lot about the culture, history and meaning behind things. All of those things I wouldn‘t have been able to find in a travel guide so I‘m very glad I booked this tourand would recommend this to everyone who wants to learn about Hiroshima and japanese culture in general.
Shinichi san planned the trip based on our interest. He explained the history and shared his personal story of a relative that offered us insights to the difficult period of re-building Hiroshima after the 1945 bombing. Shinichi san spoke good English. He paid attention to details and took good care of us.
This was fantastic. Our tour guide, Shinichi, was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We only had one day in Hiroshima and he made it one of the most memorable and enjoyable of our trip
Tour guide did a nice job navigating us through the park and it’s many sites culminating in a final drop off at the museum.
Our guide was well informed, easy to understand and made for a wonderful experience in Hiroshima.
