Makayla gave four of us a tour of Tokyo by night last evening. It was simply wonderful. She was friendly, knowledgeable and a great pleasure to see the city with. Makayla tailored the tour to our interests and ages and gave us insights that we would never have seen on our own. She is a delightful person and we would highly recommend her to others.

Tour: #3266, Hanami - Private Cherry Blossom Viewing Tour in Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Apr 12/19

What a beautiful way to be introduced to Tokyo. Our enthusiastic guide Makayla S. walked us through magnificent gardens with blooming Sakura conveying her knowledge about decades old trees. We so appreciated the manner in which she shared her joy of the blossoming cherry trees. She prepared a Hanami picnic for us that was done with great care since my wife has a gluten allergy. Makayla was extremely kind and patient with me since I use a walker. This was an exceptional tour. We would rate it a 10!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Allan, Thank you for your kind words! It was such a pleasure to share the morning with both of you. I hope the rest of your trip is very, very enjoyable! Warmest Regards, Makayla

I wish I could give Makayla 10 stars, she was fantastic. She took us to different areas of the city and we saw and learned so much. Makayla helped us buy our Pasco card and Shinkansen tickets and gave us tips on places to visit after we were on our own. I highly recommend Makayla, there is no way we could have done as much without her help.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joan, I am so glad I could be of help and you enjoyed our time exploring Tokyo. It was a pleasure being your guide. I wish you a wonderful time for the rest of your trip in Japan. Warmest regards, Makayla

Although this your guide is not a native Japanese, she was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable. She really helped us not only navigate but truly understand the train system. She gave us the confidence we needed for the rest of our time in Tokyo. I loved the fact that the tour evolved as we saw and did things. She was extremely flexible when we needed to go slower or have a rest period. She teaches Japanese and taught my husband a few useful pHrases. I highly recommend her tours.

Makayla was a great guide. She had historical knowledge to go deep on a subject and explain to us why something was interesting, complete with the stories behind them. Makayla was very flexible with our last minute itinerary and making change along the way, especially given we were a larger group (10 people) with four kids under 10. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary and Co., It was such pleasure to be your guide in Tokyo! I am glad you enjoyed your day and I am wishing you more happy explanations while you are here. Makayla

Makayla was outstanding. I had two granddaughters with me as well as my son and sister-in-law. Makayla was great with the girls and besides preparing an outstanding itinerary was willing to listen to our ideas. In addition she added a site that was new in Tokyo she had read about that was great. I would use her again without hesitation. She was a five on a scale of 1-5.

Because it was cherry blossom season, all the normal tourist spots were super crowded. Makayla suggested we go to Yanaka instead which has an old town ambience. At Yanaka there's also a beautiful cemetery and the famous Cherry Blossom lane where we experienced beautiful cherry blossom without the crowds which was the highlight of our tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Belinda, I am so glad you enjoyed Yanaka! I hope I get to meet you again in Tokyo one day. Warm greetings to you and your family, Makayla

Makayla was a lovely lady who organised a fantastic full day tour for us. we were able to see so much of Tokyo in one day with her. If we tried to do it ourselves we would have seen two things instead of the six!!!!! she took us to. Thanks Makayla very much.
