“ An amazing day with the best tour guide! ”

Our family had the most wonderful day touring Kyoto with Makoon. We’ve toured many cities in Asia and Europe with a private guide, and Makoon was one of the best tour guides we’ve ever had. Makoon created an itinerary that was perfect for our family (kids’ ages 15, 13, and 10), and he shared really interesting facts and historical context that made the sites so much more enjoyable to visit. Makoon is very thoughtful, attentive, and kind, and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. We will definitely recommend him to our family and friends.

“ Excellent! ”

Makoon was a truly wonderful tour guide! He was very knowledgeable about everything we did and saw, and was flexible to include the sights we want to visit in Kyoto. He was engaging, friendly, very enthusiastic about our tour, and he spoke English very well. He was also very understanding and accommodating about our numerous dietary restrictions. His tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan and I would highly recommend him!

“ Two amazing days in Kyoto ”

Two outstanding days in Kyoto with Makoon (Masaki)! We were a family of 6 -- 2 adults, 3 teenagers, and one six-year-old. Makoon took some ideas we gave him in advance and created a customized 2-day itinerary to hit everything and more. He developed a little sticker game for the little one to play, and adjusted his speed and topics so that all the kids stayed interested. He was very patient at adjusting to our pace, answering questions, and keeping us all together. The first day included a bunch of traditional and modern sites in the city with lots of great food stops along the way. A highlight was the Mieko/Geiko district where Makoon has a deep knowledge of culture and traditions -- one of the highlights of the trip. The second day included nature and the countryside which the kids loved. Also at our request he took us to a typical local mall where we bought rainboots for our little hike and wandered around a grocery store picking up snacks and fun foods which was surprisingly fun. He also left us with good recommendations for dinner and shows each day after our tour. Makoon is an outstanding Kyoto guide. Be sure to ask him to breakdance for you. Thank you!

“ Best Tour Guide...a must hire ”

If you are looking for a private tour guide, Masaki ("Makoon") is a must hire. From the moment we met him, it felt like we were friends for a long time. He helped coordinate our tour via email and it was a good mix of sightseeing, food and shopping. He is also very passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Kyoto so we learned a lot. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and I would definitely recommend him to all my friends as well as use him again. Thank you Makoon, we had a great time.

“ Great Day! ”

Masaki aka Makoon was the absolute best! After 5 minutes together, my wife and myself felt like we were with a friend we had known for many years! Not only is he a wonderful person, he was an amazing guide! The day spent with Makoon was the highlight of our visit to Kyoto! He customized everything about the day from places we visited to the food we ate. My only regret is we only had one day to spend with Masaki! I recommend you book your time with him ASAP when visiting Kyoto!
