Yumi was outstanding, She made all of us feel very welcome and like family the whole trip. She always made sure everyone was in the group was comfortable as possible on the trains(which can get crowded). She is very knowledgeable and learning more all the time. We will differently be booking her again and again in future trips. Thank you very much Yumi:)
