Let me begin with my conclusion: Makiko is an excellent guide whom I would recommend highly. Here is why. My wife and I spent five days in and around Kyoto, visiting many significant historical and cultural sites. We traveled to Tokyo knowing we were going to a great world city, a modern metropolis. But, we maintained our interest in the historic and cultural. Makiko skillfully put together tours in Tokyo, espcially in the wonderful gardens. She also organized a very special day for us to visit Nikko, which was an exceptional experience, both from the cultural historic perspective and that of nature, with mountains, the lake and a wonderful waterfall. In short, Makiko put together a plan that worked well for us. I am confident that had we wanted to see other perspectives on Tokyo, she would have been able to provide those, as well. Makiko was organized, punctual, helpful, courteous and very attentive to our needs. I am sure she will be the same for you if you engage her as your guide. Many thanks to her for her valuable help in making our time in and around Tokyo so meaningful and enjoyable.
Thank you very much for a wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. I truly had a lovely time with you and your wife. It was great pleasure to be your guide. Such a nice couple you are! Have a safe journey back home. Hope to see you sometime again! Please come back in different season. My warm regards to Mardi, Makiko
