Absolutely wonderful! A wonderful insight into Japanese history and culture. Akiko was a marvellous guide.
A very good tour and well worth the cost. We enjoyed the tour guide, Amy. She had personal connections to family members lost during the bomb. Her life story about the bombing made it very real, and the Memorial Park is very inspiring and sombering. The visit to the island was also very good. The weather was perfect for walking along the path to the temple and viewing the deer roaming freely.
The weather was great and the tour was fantastic. Our guide -Akiko spoke excellent English and was extremely informative and amusing. There were 12 people on the tour (with Akiko and the bus driver - totalled 14) and this was a good number as people mixed and talked to each other. It was definitely the best tour and I would recommend it to all. Unfortunately for me and a few others, we did not have enough time at the museum to see all, so now I have to return and send more time there.
Tour was excellent, great english speaking guide very informative. Needed an extra half hour on island to get to top to see monkeys tho monkeys not always seen. Hiroshima tour was excellent again well informed although i could have spent a whole day in the museum, very recommended will use ViatorJTB again.
The full day Miyajima Island and Peace Memorial Park tour was very good. We enjoyed ourselves, learned a lot and our tour guide spoke good English and she was knowledgeable. We had a great day in Hiroshima even though it was pouring rain!
A must see in Japan, a very moving day and well worth the money. If you have limited time in Hiroshima it is the easiest way to see everything. Tour guide was very professional and spoke very good English.
Despite a trip via bullet train from Ikebukuro totalling more than 15 hours and the resulting sleep deprivation, this tour was totally worthwhile. We received ample time to explore Miyajima Island be sure to taste the delicious momiji manju, their specialty!, and the tour of Hiroshima was incredibly moving. I remember questioning whether or not I should even make the trip to Hiroshima, but now I realize my stay in Japan would have been incomplete without this tour. This is a sacred place rich with a history that we should never forget.
It was an excellent tour. I think everyone should make a effort to see it once in a lifetime.
Great tour and an amazing tour guide!
Another fantastic tour with Viator. We met our guide at a Hiroshima hotel and everything about the day went exactly as described. We had a fantastic few hours at Miyajima, what a gem of a place! Then we continued onto Peace Memorial Park. I can't say enough wonderful things about our tour guide, she has such passion for what she does, she's full of interesting history and personal experience, and she really brought both these places to life for us. I can't rate her and Viator highly enough!
Highly recommended, we had a great time, wonderful guide, fluent English and an interesting mix of fellow passengers.
This was a very informative and enjoyable tour. Our tour guide really made the difference. He was very knowledgeable and personable and presented all the highlights in such a way that we found this tour to be the best we were on while in Japan.
A well organized and informative tour. The tour guide was excellent! She had a genuine passion for these sites and was accessible, thoughtful and spoke very good English. The contrast of the beauty of Miyajima and the sadness of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial provides a lasting memory. The legacy of atomic warfare is a tragic graphic lesson that the world should never forget!
