Mitsuro foi muito pontual, responsável, organizou tudo aproveitando muito bem o tempo, conhecemos lugares maravilhosos o que seria impossível sem o guia, pois ficamos em Tokyo visitando muitos lugares, muitas linhas de metro, trens e ficaríamos desorientados, perdidos sem a orientação do guia. Para Brasileiros perfeito pois domina o Português, recomendo portando Mitsuro

Mak was great - we saw the Nijo-Jo castle and the Golden Pavilion and 2 other wonderful sites. We ate an authentic Japanese lunch and we even had green tea ice cream. Mak is knowledgeable and communicates well. WE glided about the city in cabs and even took the metro. I would use Mak again and will recommend him to any of my friends who travel to Japan.

He met us at Ippudo and then we toured Western Kyoto (Arashiyama bamboo forest, monkey park, and boating on the Hozugawa river). I was struck by his genuine kindness. For example, when I mentioned I was afraid to f...
