The tour was very good organised with our professional guide. Despite the rainy day we saw a lot of Nagasaky and the japanese culture. One highlight was the cherry blossom we could see. Old and modern places in Nagasagy were included in our day-tour. Thanks to Minnie.

Very useful since this audio guide gives you a perfect structure of your trip. But save a lot of time at each sight and have in mind the entrance fees, too. Doing the full tour takes easily 6 hours, so if you have less time, set your priorities.

Great native English speaker guide, made everything easy and relaxed including travel from our accommodation. We’re ahead of schedule so he showed us to a great street for lunch.

I enjoyed Tim’s guidance through Nagasaki City. Tim was flexible as I requested a change in the tour schedule. He was generous in sharing his experience living in Nagasaki.

Great guide, a great and eventful day. Well planned, informative and super friendly. Thank you, see you next time in Osaka
