“ Worth his weight in gold! ”

We had a more memorable day than we could have even dreamed of! Mack's superb forward planning and organisation meant that the day went like clockwork and we saw and experienced SO much in one day. He was in regular contact up until the day we met to ensure that the tour was tailored perfectly to our needs. His knowledge is extensive and he is such a friendly person too. We could not recommend Mack more highly! Book him today!!

“ Excellent History Tour ”

Mack is knowledgeable in the history of Tokyo. He is very accommodating. My sister walk slow and he slow the pace to the point that we were over the end time. He also pick us up at the hotel and bring us back to the station near the hotel even though I told him that it was not necessary. I will not hesitate to book him again.
