We hired Masaki (Makoon) for 2 days while we were in Kyoto. He was exactly what we weee looking for. My kids absolutely loved him and his tour. He was so knowledgeable about Japanese history (including the Relstiknships between the Shogun and the Emperor) and was able to explain it to our children in such a fun and easy way. He has his own car so we were able to avoid the hot days when we traveled from different sites. He took us to the popular sites and even some less frequented sites that were amazing. (We even had one site to ourselves for awhile with views of the entire city of Kyoto.). One of highlights for the tour for my kids was having lunch at a sushi conveyor belt restaurant where we ordered food on an IPad like device. The food was delivered on a belt. We deposited our empty plates in a dispenser and for every 5 plates we would get a chance to win a prize. Definitely something to check out if you are traveling with your family. He also gave us some great recommendations for dinners while we were in Kyoto. Honestly, the 2 days with Makoon were the highlight of our trip in Japan. I highly recommend hiring Makoon for your trip in Kyoto.
We engaged Masaki for three full days in Kyoto. He was wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable, totally fluent in English and has a wonderful personality. He also has his own car which made it easy to get around. He was flexible for changes we made. He takes great photos as well!! 5 stars and highly recommended. He loves his city and his work and he made out tour delightful
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!
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!
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.
