Makiko is an exceptional guide. We loved our half day with her. We escaped the typhoon by going to a fascinating museum in the morning and when the weather cleared still managed to see some of the sights. We particularly enjoyed the soba shop she took us to for lunch and the sake cave/ shop. Both great additional experiences! Great guide! Thank you Makiko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very mcuh for wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you had a good day with me. I really had a lovely time with both of you to talk about many things. Hope to see you again! My warm regards to Adrian.

We had a very interesting and pleasant tour. It exceeded our expectations. Makiko was very flexible in adapting and pacing the tour to our needs. Her English is excellent and even though we are not native English speakers it was always easy to communicate. We do private tours regularly and Makiko is clearly among the best guides we ever had. She always paid attention to us rather than trying to getting her tour done, which is what differentiates an excellent from a mediocre tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very mcuh for wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you had a good day with me. I really had a lovely time with both of you to talk about your travel experience and your family. Have a great time for the rest of your time in Japan. Hope to meet you again in Germany or New Zealand! Makiko

Makiko epitomizes a professional tour guide. Not only does her knowledge of Tokyo include deep cultural and social insights, but her ease of relating this information enhances the experience. She obviously takes great pride in her profession, shows warm interpersonal skills, and guides the tourist effortlessly. The flexibility she offered on itinerary was appreciated. Taking us to a top line sake shop and a quaint lunch spot was just as pleasing as being privy to her expertise. What a great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a wonderful review with five stars! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour in Tokyo. I had a lovely time with both of you. Have a great time for the rest of your stay in Tokyo and on the cruise ship. Hope to see you sometime again! My warm regards to Brent. Makiko

We had a wonderful tour with Makiko. My wife and I, both 75, saw the Imperial Palace East Gardens, Meiji Shrine and Nezu museum. Makiko was very knowledgeable on all three sites and very easily navigated us on public transportation. She has traveled a lot and so had we and we had great conversations comparing where we have been. She is an excellent spokesperson and her love of Japan and what it offered was very evident. Makiko is quite personable and we highly recommend her as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a wonderful reveiw! It was a great pleasure to be your guide in Tokyo. I really enjoyed spending time with both of you. Such a nice couple! Hope you had a good time for the rest of your trip in Japan. Hope to see you again! My warm regards to Pat. Makiko

We had a terrific day with Makiko. She customized our tour to synchronize perfectly with our requests which were communicated to her. She is energetic and informative. We would use her again if we returned to Japan as her fund of knowledge seems so deep.

Makiko is a delightful woman and great way to be introduced to Tokyo. We were able to customize the tour and go at a pace that was comfortable for us (we had just arrived the day before, so still had jetlag). Besides the sights we saw, Makiko was able to share Japanese culture and customs, teach us how to use the subway system and introduce us to Japanese cuisine. She was so easy to talk to, and by the time we parted, we felt like we had made a new friend. We would definitely recommend her to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a great review with five stars! Glad you had a good time with me. I really enjoyed to spend time with you. It was such a pleasure to be you guide in Tokyo. Hope you had a wonderful time in Japan. Please come back in differnet season. Hope to see you again! My warm regards to Lynn. Makiko

6 of us travelled with Makiko for 5 hours and had a wonderful time. At her recommendation, we travelled through the Tsukiji Fish market , Hama-Rikyu Gardens, took the water bus down the river , and ended at the Sensoji Temple. She was delightful, outgoing and filled with little historical tidbits which she shared freely with us. She spoke flawless, conversational English and really went that extra mile to take care of us . Highly recommended.

Makiko was really everything a guide should be; knowledgeable, fun, interesting & interested and very flexible with both the planned visits and schedule. We changed our plans early in the tour as she recognized our interest in less touristic sights and despite uncooperative weather we saw and experienced Tokyo exactly as we wanted including a super funky cafe. We could not have been more pleased with the time spent with her and with absolutely no hesitation would recommend her as a guide. Thanks, Makiko

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a great review, Michael! So happy to hear you enjoyed a day with me. I really had a lovely time with both of you.

My wife and I used Makiko for a half-day tour in Tokyo and she was fantastic! She truly is such a cool lady with a great sense of humor and is an excellent guide. Specifically, she was very open minded and willing to customize the tour for what suits us, including what locations we wanted to visit and how much (or how little) time we wanted to spend in each spot. Her English is perfect and she is a very warm person who we learned a lot from and enjoyed spending time with. Highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a great review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed a day with me. I really had a lovely time with you and your wife to talk about several subjects. Hope you had a wonderful time in Japan. Hope to see you sometime again. My warm regards to Jodi, Makiko

We have really enjoyed today's guided tour of Tokyo in the company of Makiko. She came to pick us up at our hotel very punctually. We jointly decided which points of interest to visit. Makiko is extremely knowledgeable. We got to know interesting information and details on all of the places of interest we visited. We had a great Japanse lunch in a restaurant recommanded by Makiko. In all, we spent a wonderful time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a wonderful review with 5 stars! So glad to hear you enjoyed today. I had a lovely time with you to talk about lots of subjects! Have a great time for the rest of stay in Tokyo. Hope to see you again somewhere in future. My warm regards to Stephan. Makiko

I cannot recommend Makiko N. enough! She was prompt and assisted us (6 ladies in total-myself, 2 daughters, 2 siter in laws and daughter's friend) in getting our subway cards at the hotel & navigating Tokyo transit. It was raining, but that didn't stop us. We visited the Tsujiki Market, temples and shrines & managed to sqeeze in some shopping and lunch. She moves quickly so you know you're getting the most out of her time. Informative and great English. Even made recommendations for our time in Kyoto

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a great review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed a day with me. I really had a lovely time with all of you. It was such a fun tour with wondreful ladies! Hope you had a enjoyable days in Kyoto. Hope to see you sometime again. My warm regards to everyone. Makiko

Great guide. We got to see many different sites in Tokyo and some "off the beaten path". Suggested several venues we would not have know about. We have recommended her to family who are visiting next month.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a second review with 5 stars! You are such a kind person. It was great pleasure to be your guide for 2 days. Have a wonderful time on a cruise ship! Hope to see you again. Makiko

While we were in Tokyo we did a half day tour with Makiko. She took us to visit one of the famous temples. She was very informative and gave us a lot of background information that made the visit much more interesting. She also took us to some lovely shops and to a lovely traditional Japanese restaurant where we sat on the floor. We then took the kids for a walk down Takashita street which is famous with teenagers, ending in an animal café which the kids loved. Makiko was a lovely guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for taking time to write a good review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. My warm regards to your family. Makiko

Makiko was a fantastic guide! We did 2 tours with her. She let us customize them to do the things we wanted to do and offered great suggestions. When it rained our second day, she adjusted the tour and brought us to an interesting museum rather than continuing to freeze outside. We were so glad we booked our tours with Makiko! We would highly recommend her if you want a completely personalized experience. After our tours, she gave us perfect directions back to our hotel using the metro system.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a wondrful review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. Great you liked the museum. I had a lovely time to spend a day with you and your mum. Hope to see you again. My warm regards to your mother. Makiko

Makiko was the most wonderful guide. She met us at our hard to find accommodation, showed us how to use the train ticket system, took us to some of the sites and was full of knowledge about them. She helped us find a hedgehog cafe and was just generally wonderful. I can highly recommend Makiko as your guide in Tokyo.
