We had a great day with Hero this past week. His English is excellent and he knows the Kansai region very well. Even though he doesn't live in Kobe, he took us on a great tour of the city. We asked him to take 5 of us out for a private food and drink tour, and he found many interesting places to take us. I would recommend him to anyone.
