Our tour guide Aki was so very knowledgeable about the area and the items we’d picked out to visit Guiding us through a labyrinth of public transport and taking time to find and use available lifts where possible due to one of our group being injured Aki is a great help, a knowledgeable and patient guide and very flexible. He has a very good command of English and is easily understood, even providing assistance is buying some items during our tour I would expect to use Aki’s service and knowledge again if I visit this area Well done Aki 👍
