“ Excellent tour guide ”

Travelling with kids is a challenge, especially when travelling with toddlers who are energetic and inquisitive. Thanks to Makiko for accommodating our needs during our tour in Tokyo. Makiko managed it well for us to enjoy both outdoor & indoor activities. She made sure the locations are kids friendly and looked after the needs of our little ones. We definitely found our trip enjoyable with Makiko and we highly recommend her!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for your great review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. I totally understand your situations as I was exactly same when my daughter was small. Your are great parents! I loved your kids. They were so well behaved and so cute. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Please come back and spend more time in Japan, maybe in different season. My warmest regards to your beautiful family. Makiko

Makiko was an excellent guide and was very happy to accommodate the needs of my family. Makiko was punctual in meeting us at our hotel.
