“ Koya-San- Historic/beautiful and what Tranquil. ”

We spent a full day with Makoto (Mac). He got to our hotel for pickup early as we needed to get a very useful KOYA-San Heritage Pass at the station prior to the touring. It was a great way to get the transportation needed as well as discounted entrances to our sites. Good value and definitely saved us money. As far as the tour, we saw what we had wanted to do, lead by a mature, very professional and pleasant guide. He used the time we had efficiently and he got us to every locale in an very timely manner. He knew what the sites and areas had to offer and explained them to us. His command of English was superb and there was never a communication problem. We had a very good traditional lunch near the next site we were to visit and when it came time to leave, we were escorted back to our point of origin which for us was our hotel In Osaka. No reservations in recommending Mac for the Koya-San tour and I’m sure whatever others he leads will be worthwhile too. Thanks for a great day.
