It was an almost perfect day for the tour. We had an informative guide who was very pleasant and accommodating. At our request he brought us to a restaurant that served a delicious lunch. And he brought us to a few vantage points from where we had the best views of the majestic mountain.

Yukio Provided us with a very enjoyable tour he was very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant to deal with The one word that would best describe Yukio is that he is a gentleman We very much enjoyed his tour And would recommend anyone to take his tour
