Thank you Makoon for a wonderful tour in Kyoto! Makoon is an expert guide, a wonderful storyteller and a really special person. Makoon’s easy going communications style and superb English made sure we could benefit from not only facts and sights but also from the atmosphere and unique “feel” of Kyoto. We saw and experienced things we could have never seen without the experience and thoughtful guidance by Makoon. The great passion Makoon has to guiding visitors to his great town of Kyoto and to sharing his knowledge of Japanese culture and history are immediately evident and added a unique depth to our tour. Our tour together exceeded our expectations in the depth of knowledge, the sights we visited and the great fun of experiencing Kyoto with a local. It was like having a friend showing you around their hometown. He customized a tour which perfectly fit our interests. You could not ask for anything more in a special tour than the special experience we had with Makoon on our first day in Kyoto. Makoon’s pre-tour preparations and in depth information made sure we were prepared and allowed us to get the most out of our time together. Makoon is both very patient and has a wealth and depth of knowledge making our tour a unique fun and learning experience. We wish we had more time with Makoon and will recommend Makoon to all travelers to Japan and hope to meet him again in our next trip to Japan.
