Excellent tour, can’t recommend highly enough
Amanda

We booked this tour after finding out that the Hiroshima Peace Museum was closed due to coronavirus. We still wanted the chance to find out more about the atomic bomb and the impact this had from a Japanese perspective so booked the tour instead. Our guide, Yuko, was absolutely fantastic! I can’t recommend her highly enough. Yuko and her tour surpassed all expectations and was so much better than I imagine the museum would have been. I emailed Yuko in advance of the tour to discuss what we wanted to see. As so many local places are currently closed due to coronavirus, Yuko was really flexible in working out an appropriate itinerary and agreed to shorten the tour to two hours instead of four hours for half the price which worked really well. We focused on walking around the peace memorial park, ground zero and the A bomb dome and nearby Hiroshima castle. Throughout the tour she provided us with boundless enthusiasm, impressive historical knowledge and a compassionate local perspective on the A bomb and its impact. The tour was humbling, informative and left us feeling hopeful for the future. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in history and learning from the mistakes of the past.

Thank you for such a lovely comment. Your words definitely motivate me! I am also grateful that you came to Hiroshima in this difficult situation. Although the tour was short, we talked four hours worth you initially booked, didn’t we? I was impressed by your enthusiasm for the history of Hiroshima. It was very interesting to compare our cultures and discover something new. You made my day! Oh, by the way, my husband was very excited to have the donut from you. I will never forget the precious time we spent together. Yuko

Excellent guide from a local!

We were lucky to get Tom, who is a local of Hiroshima, as our guide. He was very informative, spoke with compassion and made our tour memorable. It was just unfortunate that the weather did not cooperate during our tour- it was rainy and very cold! We did not manage to do the Hiroshima castle and gardens because of the bad weather. But Tom made our tour of the Peace Park and museum truly enlightening! I would recommend Tom to any first timers of Hiroshima. Thanks Tom-san. 😊❤️

Custom tours are the way to go. Our guide Noriko reached out to us in advance to talk about our interests and plan our activities, she picked us up at the train station and just spent the afternoon with us showing us all the sights. This is perfect, even when we were on a strange land we felt right at home. She was also very patient with out kids and took us off the beaten path. We enjoyed our visit very much. I wish we found guides like this everywhere we go.

This is not a private tour

I was promised to a private tour, with no mention that it would be 'on foot using public transportation' that I'd have to pay extra for. The transportation and entrance fees were not included and you're paying for someone to just walk with you, which is you could do yourself. This is company is a third party that charged us, but only when the actual tour company confirmed that it is not what Viator promised, we needed to cancel (because my sister couldn't walk because she sprained her ankle). Viator did NOTHING to help cancel. They did not refund our money and they didn't even communicate with the tour company, who showed up to take us on the tour. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!!!

We had an informative and interesting tour with Tomoyo. She was easy to communicate with prior to the tour and handled all of the transportation details during the day with ease. Tomoyo was professional, knowledgeable and very pleasant. We very much enjoyed spending the day with her.

Thank you for your review. I also had a great time with you talking not only about Japan but also about your country and the neighboring countries. I am looking forward to see you again in Hiroshima! (Tomoyo)

We are very grateful to Tomoyo for guiding us around Hiroshima. This is an important place in human history and Tomoyo was the perfect guide: knowledgeable, sensitive and flexible. She contacted us beforehand to come up with an itinerary that would meet our interests and kept us informed each step of the way. Our family highly recommends visiting Hiroshima with Tomoyo.

Thank you for your kind review. You were all very friendly, and I felt like we had been friends for a long time. We talked a lot about ourselves, the war, and the history. It was a precious time. I hope you will visit Hiroshima and me again. Tomoyo

Our tour guide Miyuki was excellant and informative in explaining everything to us, we enjoyed her company very much. She is a good ambassador for your country and for your company Viator. We would recommend her anytime.

It was great to meet adventurous people! We took a streetcar to go into the city, just like local people. You spoke to a stranger on the street and found out that he was an Atomic Bomb survivor and he was happy to take photos with all of you. We visited the Orizuru Tower and three of you chose to slide down to the 1st floor. We laughed a lot and had a great time. Thank you! (Miyuki)

This was a very pleasant experience. Our tour guide, Miyuki, was awesome! Very nice and patient lady that walked with us under the rain all around Hiroshima. She planned in advance our visit and took us early in the morning to the Memorial. An hour later, the memorial was impossible to access. The line was huge!! She shared lots of historic facts, photos, stories, of Hiroshima. Wonderful tour. I highly recommend this tour and MIyuki.

Thank you for your kind comment. How was the Pokemon center in Hiroshima and Hiroshima castle after the tour? I was happy to take you to a hidden local peace museum and the former bank of Japan (the original location of the Human Shadow Etched in Stone) before visiting Peace Memorial Museum. Miyuki
