“ Nagasaki Japan ”

Kao was an excellent guide very knowledgeable and caring. Nothing was any trouble, my husband has a bad back and Kao took particular care to make sure he didn’t have to walk too far. She took us to the Spectacle Bridge which was fun. All in all I would highly recommend Kao as an excellent guide Sue Barty
