“ Full-service guide that kept our large group moving ”

Hideo was a super tour guide! We booked professional tours through the cruise ship at other destinations, and this tour was very comparable to those, at a fraction of the cost. I can highly recommend Hideo, based on this experience. I helped to organize the tour with Hideo for a group from Cruise Critic, that ended up being 25 people. Hideo consolidated all of the costs (travel, entry fees, lunch, etc) into a total fee, and Hideo took care of arranging and planning everything. He met us at the pre-arranged time on the dock and had us back to the dock on schedule. The original plan was to use local public transportation, but Hideo organized private transportation using a comfortable bus, due to the size of the group and concerns about keeping everyone together. Hideo also offered to arrange for headphones so participants could hear his commentary at the crowded sites. Both changes improved the experience significantly, at a very reasonable cost. Hideo accommodated all of our special requests, including dropping some of us off at the Atomic Bomb Memorial site early, while the others enjoyed a nice lunch at a local restaurant. Hideo was very organized, provided a written itinerary, had a binder full of information to share, and was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. He was very good natured and was adept at keeping the group moving on a very tight schedule. We had adequate time to see everything, take pictures, etc,; but we did have to keep moving to not fall behind schedule. Many on the tour had very positive things to say about Hideo. Thanks Hideo for making our visit to Hiroshima enjoyable and a great success!
