Mie did a fantastic job guiding us through Miyajima and Hiroshima. She was so positive and kind with our large group. We covered so much ground even on a rainy day, and the Peace Memorial Park was all the more sobering because of her personal connection. Thank you, Mie!

Mie was an excellent guide for our visits of Hiroshima and Miajima. She is very well versed in both the modern and ancient histories of the two sites and did a great job bringing it all to life. Beyond the tour, Mie was extremely helpful sorting out some crucial logistical challenges we were facing that were compounded by the language barrier. We very much appreciated her stepping up to make our pre and post-tour arrangements run more smoothly. Thank you, Mie, for your help and a very informative tour!

Our family of 7 (parents, grandparents & kids 10-12-14) had a good day with Mie as she showed us her Hiroshima. Unfortunately for Mie, our group was already exhausted from touring, when she met us at the train station. It was also unfortunate that we were travelling during a heavy school excursion period as the peace memorial museum was unsafely full during our tour. Mie is a very knowledgeable, patient and kind tour guide. Her English is great and her insight into the history of Hiroshima is amazing.

A fantastic, informative, knowledgeable half day tour. In view of the history, unfortunately Hiroshima is not to be missed but it will be busy. Mie was a perfect guide and if you are lucky enough to find she is available on your day then you would do well to book immediately

We considered our visit to Hiroshima to be a key day within our vacation and so we booked with Tours by Locals. Our tour guide Mie did a wonderful job of slowly taking us throughout the entire Atomic Bomb site and supplying us with all kinds of interesting and thought provoking information. All we had hoped for and more. The tour also took us through the main garden area in the city which was absolutely fantastic and not to be missed. Seeing we only had a short window of time, Mie did a great job.

Mie had excellent English. She was very knowledgeable, had an itinerary that had the key areas to see but was flexible to match what I wanted to see and do as well as . Since it was raining we got to see some areas that were not on her initial itinerary but were really great finds. Had a great personality and was a very good companion for the day

Mie is an expert on the Atomic situation and gives a thorough overview of the historic aspects and then the Peace gardens and Museum and contemporary context. I have in the past had her take clients to Miyajima for the wonderful Itsukushima Floating Torii Gate but it is now under construction so there is time for Hiroshima Castle which has wonderful views from the top and good collections. Mie explains and answers questions and is thoughtful and more than a great guide.

Our guide, Mei, was excellent. We had some very specific needs and requests and she graciously accommodated every one. She had extensive knowledge of history and culture, and found us a great place for okonomiyaki at Miyajima. We highly recommend Mei for tours in Hiroshima.

Mie was a pleasant, lovely lady. Spoke English well and provided good information on all that we had planned to see on the tour. Walked a little too fast for four of the older persons on our tour. Didn't wait for all the group to be together before providing information.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Really sorry for that it was a busy tour for you and I made you tired. I keep your words in mind so that travelers in every generations can enjoy my tours. I hope that you enjoyed your stay in Japan.

Mie-san is a great tour guide. She was thoroughly prepared for our tour in Miyajima and Iwakuni. You couldn't ask for a more organized tour guide either. I highly recommend Mie-san for your tour!

We had a wonderful tour with Mie. Her English is excellent and far better than any guide on tours provided by our cruise line in Japan. Mie was waiting for us as we left our ship and had texted when she arrived at the pier. It was pouring rain the entire day and whenever there were lines queuing outside a museum she offered to wait for us so we could be inside. Her knowledge of everything in the Peace Museum was superior, and at all the sights at Miyajima as well. We highly recommend Mie.

When our cruise line replaced an overnight stay in Hiroshima with a 9 hour stop, we wanted to make the most of it. Mie gave us a visit that exceeded our hopes and expectations. Our tour of the Peace Park and Miyajima Island, including the ropeway, included plenty of time for shopping and multiple local food experiences. She was superbly organized and informative. Highly recommended.

Mie provided what we wanted, an overview tour of the Hiroshima memorials. As well, a beautiful Japanese garden(in full cherry blossom bloom) and, the exterior of the Hiroshima castle. Mie was knowledgeable and a fine teacher. The afternoon went very quickly as there was considerable distance and walking time between the sights. Mie covered all the highlights with us. Kudos for her sensitivity after many visits. More crowded with other tourists than expected.
