“ Excellent experience ”

After a long week of skiing, my family had the great pleasure of being shown around Tokyo by Mack. He was an excellent tour guide because he was extremely organised and knew his way around the city very well. We were very grateful for Mack’s generosity and patience. It was an exciting and memorable experience. I cannot recommend Mack highly enough.

Mack:

Dear Matt San. Thank you for having me as your guide today. Since this is in the middle of new year holiday, some services were not available. However you did my best and I hope you and your children enjoyed the day. Please have a safe flight. I hope I can see you again. Best regards, Mack

“ Full day of Historical sites and gardens ”

I have taken many tours and I must say Mack was one of my most favorite guides. Prior to our trip I let Mack know that we wanted to see as many historical sites as possible and we were okay with any suggestions he may have. Well Mack delivered, we went all over Tokyo and saw most everything we wanted to see and then some. A couple of the highlights were one Mack planned and one I believe we just stumbled on. The impromptu highlight was a dance (parade of dancers) contest going on in the city that was fun to watch. The other was one Mack planned for us, a Buddhist drum ceremony that was also very interesting to see. Mack also took us to a very delicious restaurant that was off the beaten path for lunch. He also helped us purchase train tickets that would have been very complicated for us t... read more

“ Our Tokyo tour with Mack - Simply the BEST ”

To put it simply, booking a tour with Mack was the best thing we could have done! We spent two days under Mack’s expert guidance and visited many wonderful sights of Tokyo by foot and rail. Mack taught us how to use the subway and JR lines which set us up beautifully for the rest of our trip to Hiroshima and Kyoto which we did on our own. Mack sent us a well prepared itinerary before we arrived in Japan which included all the things we thought we would like to do, plus many more. He was so organized and showed us maps and simple illustrations to explain parts of the history, culture and religion of Japan which put perspective on the places we visited. This was all part of the fabulous ‘hidden gems’. He is also a great listener and will tailor the tour to your suggestions. Mack ... read more

“ Mack is the best ”

Mack picked us up from our Airbnb and took us around Tokyo. He came up with a plan to optimize the day we had and completed everything. But most importantly he showed us how to use the subway system to get around in Tokyo. He also planned our trip to Mt Hakone and sent it in writing giving us clear instructions. I would ask Mack for help anytime.

Mack:

Dear Sumant San Thank you for choosing me as your guide this time. I did my best to make your family trip the most wonderful. I am glad to know you successfully accomplish your journey to Hakone. I think it’s great job and I am happy to be your help. I hope you visit Japan again and I am willing to be your help anytime. Best regards, Mack
