A Recent Review of this tour

We had such a wonderful tour from Kanazawa to the Noto Peninsula with Takashi! He speaks enough English that we were able to communicate well between us and he saw to it that we were right there with him from bus rides to tours of the Fish Market, the floats museum, lacquer shops, etc. Truly enjoyed our day with him and all of the things we experienced.
