One of the best tours

Makato was great! He was very flexible and adjusted to our schedule. He also changed the tour based on what we wanted to see, which made it more enjoyable. Makato helped us navigate Osaka and eliminate any complications throughout the day. He even stayed with us to find my son the dessert he wanted. Makato made the day unforgettable! On top of everything, we enjoyed his sense of humor and his ability to make the tour extra fun!

Leonid S.

Dear Leonid, Thanks for your nice comments for my tour. I also enjoyed very much with the conversation with you and your sense of humor. The best part is that your son mentioned about the samurai picture stating that this samurai is being interviewed after the big battle. I will never forget this sense as the picture was really indicating that situation. I hope that your son will take you to Japan next time. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide this time. Makoto
