We spent one day in Kyoto with Makoon and it was one of the highlights of our Japan trip. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the sites we visited and was open to all of our questions. We learned so much about Japanese culture and had a great time. Makoon was very responsive and polite throughout the booking process and he was able to cater the tour to our needs. He was organized when we arrived and had printed out an itinerary for each of us and even had an activity arranged for my 3 year old which was much appreciated. My daughter loved spending time with him and thought he was great fun. We never felt rushed to get from one place to another and we were able to fit all of the activities we wanted to do within the time frame. I highly recommend picking Makoon as your tour guide if you are planning a walking tour in Kyoto!
