“ He was the best guide We could experience. ”

It was very comftable trip. He has his own car to take us to the inportant place we needed to visit. His english was pretty good compared to other guides I met in Japan. He could explain all the histories and meanings of the places. Very kind and friendly. I would absolutely recomend to other peoples.

Dear Sabina Thank you for taking time to write a kind review. I am happy that I could be a help for you and your family to have a good memory. Eventhough we covered a lot of places in 1 day, there are a lot more interesting places in Kyoto! Please come back and hope to see you again in the near future!! Best Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Highly professional guide. Covered all that we requested to see including an authentic lunch. ”

We had the most wonderful day with Masaki. I specified what I wanted to see in Kyoto after doing some research and he covered everything with complete knowledge of the sites including background information. He made the day fun and convenient. His knowledge of English was perfect and providing private transportation helped us to efficiently and comfortably get around without losing time. We learned so much from him and felt as if we were spending the day with a friend. He paid attention to detail in his e-mail conversations with us before our visit so that we had all the information we needed to meet him for our day of touring. We highly recommend Masaki for his professionalism and knowledge of history and current events.

Dear Nancy and Simcha Thank you very much for amazing review. It was great to show you around this ancient city, and sharing the history! I was also really happy to share the great conversation together, again I was guiding you in Kyoto but you were guiding me my life!! I am really looking forward to meeting you both again! Best Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Excellent guide ”

My husband and our two daughters (13 and 8 years old) recently spent a couple of weeks travelling around Japan. We paid for a number of tours in different cities, but without doubt Makoon was the best guide we hired. He was very organised, spoke excellent English, understood what we wanted to achieve and was very friendly. We covered a lot on our tour and it all went very smoothly, including choosing an excellent place for lunch that met our various culinary tastes! Both of our daughters enjoyed his company and we found him to be very professional. If you have children do visit Monkey Mountain, we are from England but we live in Asia and thought we wouldn't bother because we are use to seeing monkeys, but it is good fun and worth the walk. Highly recommended, you won't find a better tour guide.

Dear Cassandra Thank you very much for taking time to write an amazing review! I really enjoyed the day with you and your family! You came in one of the busiest days of the year, but the traffic and crowd were surprinsingly light! Good karma you have! I still remember the very happy face of Cara's happy face with that sushi set! Once again, I am really happy that I could help you with making a great memory in Kyoto. Hope to see you everybody again in the near future!! Best Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Best Kyoto Guide ever! ”

Masaki is an amazing guide. Knowledgeable, friendly, very attentive and really enjoys what he is doing. We had a great trip around Kyoto area with him and when we come back to Japan, will surely want him to give us excursions. I highly recommend Masaki to anyone traveling to Kyoto.

Dear Natalya Thank you very much for your kind review. It was great taking you to a tour, it was great to see you enjoy cherry blossoms, local lunch, and Japanese culture and history! Next time, I will make sure you will enjoy Geiko/Maiko dinner! Hope to see you again in the near future! Kind Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Amazing tour guide ”

We toured with Masaki for two days and would have done a third if he had not already been booked. He was so knowledgeable and personable. My 2 teen boys had a great time with him. He helped us before we came to figure out a flow to fit in all the things we wanted to see, he gave us a guide each day of what we were seeing, took us to great lunch locations, took family photos for us and knew so much about everything we visited. It was also great he had a car as we could get between sights very efficiently. Highly recommend him!

Dear Alex I'd like to appreciate your kind review. It is my pleasure and passion to introduce my city and help my guests with making a great memory! You have such a happy family and even teen boys were interested in the culture and history here! Really hope to see you again in the near future! Warm Regards, Makoon
