“ Awesome visit with great guide ”

My wife and I had the good fortune to have selected Makiko as our guide in Tokyo for four days. She was very attentive to our needs and was pleasant to be with. She escorted us around Tokyo in an efficient and time effective manner. We usually used public transportation which was efficient and fast. Tokyo’s subway and train system is amazing. Makiko is well versed in the history, culture and religion of Japan. Her command of English is excellent. We highly recommend Makiko.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review! Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. It was a pleasure to be your guide for 3 days. Such a lovely time for me to spend with both of you. Hope to see you again. My warm regards to Sandy. Makiko

Makiko is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the wonderful city . Her English is perfect . She is also thoroughly in taking us thru the maze of the subway system. She really went the extra mile in getting us back the station we needed to get to , even though she had a appointment with a friend . We would highly recommend her as a guide. . Emery / Susan

“ Day Trip from Tokyo to Nikko ”

Makiko was really fun to be with and clearly enjoys what she does. She is great at explaining details on temples and shrines that one cannot find in a guide book. She also took us to a very enjoyable small local restaurant that had been open for over a hundred years and was delicious.

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a great review and your generosity. Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour in Nikko. I really had a lovely time with you and your family. They are such amazing children! Hope to see you again sometime in future. My warm regards to all of them in your family. Makiko

“ See Tokyo and Hakone with an expert ”

We delighted in having Makiko as a guide because she attended to our every need and was very attentive to our requests, regardless of how particular they were. She took cues from us and noted our pace, what we enjoyed and how long we wanted to stay at each place. She helped us with our souvenir shopping, our particular vegetarian tastes, love of artisanal chocolates, crafts , etc., and she was a totally charming guide. We felt as if we had always known her— she taught us a lot of things about Japanese life and culture, and we could not have asked for a more perfect time!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a wonderful review with five stars! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour in Tokyo and Hakone. I had a lovely time with both of you. Such a fun to talk with you about several subjects! Have a great time for the rest of your stay in Japan. Hope to see you sometime again. Please come back in different season! My warm regards to Steve. Makiko
