This tour was fantastic, we really enjoyed the day with Yuji. He provided transport around in his van which was great. He has excellent English and is really friendly and informative. He provided both cultural and funny facts throughout the day. He also gave us free time throughout the day to look over the areas ourselves which was a nice touch. Overally this tour was great and we highly recommend it as a way to see Hiroshima.
