We at Huber always try to create an authentic and casual experience--just like you would normally hang out with your friends; And so, the pair-guide system was created, allowing you and your Support Guide to fully immerse yourself with the guests.
ii. To Make Sure our Service Does not Violate the Law of Guide-Interpreter
In accordance to the Japanese Law, accompanying foreigner(s) by providing a guided tour using foreign language with money being involved would require a special license of guide-interpreter.
