Upon first introduction, Makoon asked us to fill out a questionnaire which detailed our interests which allowed him to plan a unique day-long itinerary specifically dedicated to us. This was so thoughtful, and made the entire experience even more special. Leading up to our trip, he even created and shared booklets with us that gave us a detailed look into his food recommendations for the city, and a plan of action for the second day where we would not be with him – this was not something he had to do, but something he WANTED to do, which meant the world to us. Every single one of his recommendations were AMAZING, he even introduced us to an authentic tea ceremony shop to provide us with a special 40 minute experience in the heart of Kyoto. During our tour with Makoon, he was filled with knowledge, kindness and respect – we thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with him, learning about the history and culture in Kyoto and will cherish it for the rest of our lives. All in all, it was an unforgettable day, and truly could not have been possible without Makoon’s upbeat attitude, dedication to planning and genuine happiness for our well-being. Makoon is also an incredible photographer, a one-in-a-million type of man and someone we’d whole heartedly recommend to anyone looking for a one on one tour around this beautiful city. When we come to visit again, we will definitely re-book with Makoon!!!
