  • とても満足しています。サミュエルさんはドミニカの歴史に詳しく、また様々なコミュニティに知り合いがいるため、色々な話を聞けます。私の場合、日本語学校の中に入らせてもらいJICAの先生とお話ししたり、かなり高級なお店の中に入らせてもらったりしました。また、ラテンアメリカの中でのドミニカの特殊性など、興味深い講義をしてくれました。単なる観光ツアーでなく、ドミニカの国や人を知ることができ、とても良い体験でした。I am very pleased for his guide. Mr. Samuel is familiar with Domincan history and familiar with many community. So, I could hear many stories. As to me, I could go to Japanese school in Dominica and talked with Jica dispatched representatives, and entered in deluxe rooms with  his invitation.  Additionally, he taught me some interesting story, especially, about particularity of Domonica. This was not just a tour, but a good experience to know about a Dominican history, and charactor.More
