“ Best Day of our 10 Day Japan Trip! ”

I normally don't write reviews but I felt compelled after how incredible our day was! Masaki was very informative but in a totally relatable manner. Knowledge was passed on through conversation rather than a history lesson. He catered the trip entirely to us and was very flexible. Truly can't speak highly enough about how great this tour was! We have countless photos and memories of our fantastic Kyoto journey!

Masaki:
Dear Joseph Thank you very much for your kind review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the history and culture! We covered a lot of different sites in one day, but you guys were fit and enjoyed even an extra site! Please enjoy the photos and remember the great day we shared! Kind Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ ABOSLUTELY INCREDIBLE ”

Makoon was one of the nicest tour guides I have ever had in my travels to over 29 countries. He was superiorly knowledgeable, knew the best places and times of days to attend them and responded to my questions before booking within hours. His english was superb and I feel lucky that we had him for the entire day in Kyoto!

Masaki:
Dear Joshua I really appreciate the kind reveiw like yours. It is my honor as a guide to recieve such a message! Once again, I really enjoyed a day with such a friendly and energetic group! we had great conversation, and you made me laugh so hard!! At the same time, I was really happy that you showed respect to the history and culture, and was eager to learn about shinto, buddhism etc... I feel luck that I had great guests like you guys! Looking forward to meeting you again! Masaki Makoon Mori

“ The best of the best!!! ”

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.

Masaki:
Dear Robert Thank you very much for your kind review. Your words really motivate and inspire me to improve as a guide. I spent a great time with you and Avi, and you guys are exactly the family that I and my son would like to be in 20 years! As we promised in Gion, let's meet again 20 years later!! Kind Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Outstanding tour experience in Kyoto thanks to Makoon! ”

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)

Masaki:
Dear Paul, Marie, Robert, and Diana Thank you very much for such a wonderful review. It is really inspriring to receive such a message, and it's my motivation to improve as a guide! I was really happy to spend a day with such a happy and friendly group! Every place we went, I was really happy to see you show respect to the history and culture, and really enjoy the moment. It is truely my honor to share an experience with people like you. The time really flew that day, and it was great that we ended the day with Maiko dinner. I am greatful that I could have shown the very unique part of Kyoto culture. Again, thank you very much for everything. Please do contact me when you come back! I have a lot more to show you here!! Kind Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Highly Recommended Guide! ”

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.

Masaki:
Dear Leah and the family Thank you very much for your kind review. It is truely my honor to receive such review. I'm really glad you like the background stories and history, and liked the pictures a lot. Again I love going on a trip with my family, too. It is often difficult to have family photos. I really hope these pictures will remind you of the day we spent together in this historical city! Looking forward to seeing you all again! Best Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori
