Macky took me to multiple places around Mt Fuji I would have never know about. Several great views of Mt Fuji from the various stops. He was very kind and informative. I can't imagine how I could have made the day any better!
Our day with Macky was excellent. In every way, Macky delivered. We had a full itinerary planned, and even with a last minute request to change one of our stops from a bike ride to a winery visit, Macky was able to accommodate. If you are looking for a guide that will find a way to squeeze in all that you want to do within a short time frame without sacrificing the integrity of your trip, Macky is your guide. Prior to our tour, Macky sent us a detailed itinerary down to the hour (while also allowing for flexibility). He really listened to what we wanted to do and what we wanted to accomplish in one day and he made it all happen. Macky is a great tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about Japan who will work with your requests and make sure your day/tour is time extremely well-spent. Thank you, Macky!
Dear Aubrey, It was really pleasure to have you guided the areas where you can see Mt. Fuji. Thank you very much for rating your high evaluation to my guide. I really appreciated your comments. I will work hard to make my guests more enjoyable in my guided tour in the future. I hope you have enjoyed tours in Tokyo and return to your home safely. I wish you and your parents have healthy and enjoyable life. Best regards, Macky Hagiya
