She was having trouble with public transportation and was not as organized. Besides that she was flexible polite. Helpful and accommodating to our needs. She could improve by providing more details about different sightseeing locations and offer more ideas about what to do and see in her city.
Yuriko was a very nice guide to spend time with. Her English is very good and she is knowledgeable and organised. She thinks ahead and tries to sort out all planning ahead of time. She kindly spent some time in the evening with me as well and we had a very nice meal together. I would happily recommend her and wish her will with her guiding! Thanks Yuriko
