Our guide, Kenji, was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions - and my husband asks a lot of questions! Kenji was also very friendly and personable. He was considerate of my health limitations without being over solicitous. He made sure we made it to public transportation for our next adventure. Would go on a tour anywhere with him to guide us. Very satisfied!
