Absolutely excellent guide. Many e-mail communications before our trip to hone and finalize our itinerary. Has a car which made it possible to get to several distant sites of interest. Brought his own camera to take our photos, and e-mailed them to us. He is very informative and knows the area well. Very accommodating. I recommend him highly without hesitation. You'll be fortunate if you are able to book him.
We were so fortunate to have Masaki (Makoon) as our guide for our day tour of Kyoto. Makoon's service started well before our actual tour. Makoon tended to every detail of our group's (4 adults) request via detailed emails prior to our arrival. As we were arriving by ship, Makoon personally met us at the Kobe cruise port. From the very start, we were impressed with Makoon's professional and friendly manner. He was a delight to be with from start to finish! As we had requested a PRIVATE Maiko dinner while in Kyoto, Makoon was able to arrange this for us. This was the highlight of our entire tour of Japan! Thank you, Makoon! Makoon attended to every detail and was always willing to modify our plans based on our desires (especially since we preferred more eating and shopping opportunities, as well as trying to avoid touristy crowds at the popular sites). He was most accommodating. Makoon even took personal pictures of our day which he immediately emailed to us....what a nice touch! We all admitted that Makoon was probably one of the BEST guides that we have ever had (and we have traveled extensively around the world). We would rate Makoon as a "10 star guide" if the rating scale would allow this! If we ever find ourselves back in Kyoto (and we are certain that we will return) we would definitely engage Makoon's services. Thank you, Makoon! Paul, Marie, Robert, and Diana (friends from Hawaii)
We love the flexibility of doing our own itineraries during our travels instead of joining tour groups. For Kyoto, however, I took a risk and hired a private guide with a car to make the most of our one full day in that beautiful city. It was a very smart decision that was worth the money! We were able to see some major attractions which would have been impossible without a car (and with a kid!). We were also treated to historical and cultural background stories of each site, which we would have surely missed had we been on our own. Lastly, our guide took pictures (which was not mentioned in the package) and sent it to us a few hours after the tour. These pictures are very much treasured since we rarely get family pictures that are not selfies during our trips. Makoon, our guide, is highly recommended! He speaks English well and has a knack of sharing stories that kept our interest, including that of our 8 yo son.
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.
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.
