Sorry I took me so long to write this review. In a short 1 day tour, she took us to all the "must see" places. She found the best location for us to have the best view of our visiting places. For example, she took us to the top floor of a building so we could see the complete view of Asakusa Temple. She managed to guide us into the inner part of Tsukiji Fish Market for a view that otherwise we wouldn't have been able to see. We were very happy with her guide and highly recommend Makiko.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Suzanne, Thank you very much for a wonderful review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. Hope you had a great time for the rest of your trip. Hope you come back and see you again. My warmest regards to your family.

It was a joy to have Makiko as our guide for a bespoke tour in the Shinjuko area. Fluent in English she was able to help us with obtaining train tickets, navigating the metro, showing us the sights from the Metropolitan Government building's south tower, helping with a bit of shopping and ordering lunch before leaving us at the Ota Print Museum. Lovely company during the 5 hour tour. We would certainly use Makiko again.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Alan, Thank you very much for a wonderful review! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. Hope you had a lovely time for the rest of stay in Japan. My warmest regards to Janet. Hope to see you! Makiko

Great tour. Makiko is an experienced guide she knows Tokyo really well. When we decided not to stop for lunch at the Tsukiji market because of the crowd, she took us to a really nice sushi restaurant close to the market where the sushi was great. Its unfortunate my wife wasn't feeling well to enjoy the whole experience. Makiko is very knowledgeable and has a very friendly disposition. I would recommend her guide services to anyone and we will use her services again when in Tokyo.

Tour Guide Comment: Dear Kovan, Thank you so much for a lovely review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. How's Ana? Hope she is OK now. I imagine you are very busy for organizing a new life. Hope to see you again in Tokyo. Thank you again and my best regards to Ana.
