MAKOTO HORI Private tour guide in Tokyo, Kyoto - Japan

MAKOTO HORI

Guide profile:

Hi, I am Makoto, but please simply call me Mack.

Let me support you to make your trip unique and special.

I would like to offer you two kinds of tours. One is a highlight tour of Tokyo in which we will visit several must see places in Tokyo, like Tsukiji fish market, Meiji Shrine, Asakusa and so on. This tour is especially good for first time visitors who want to quickly cover the best places in this big city.

The other one is an off the beaten pass tour in which we will visit less touristy area, like Yanesen, Fukagawa, Kagurazaka and so on. I named it Tokyo HIdden Gem Tour. This tour is good for tourists who visited Tokyo several times and want to visit something new to them.

I can combine these two if you give me at least one day.

Let me tailor your trip to suit your need better.

Let's explore this big city Tokyo, mixture of new and old, with me!!

###Guide in Kyoto and Nara

My hometown is Kyoto. I was born there and grew up there until I graduated Kyoto University. Therefore, I know Kyoto and Nara very well including some hidden gems there.

If you want me to guide in Kyoto or Nara, please ask me my availability first before booking.

We are so glad we chose Makoto as our guide for Tokyo. He is a true gentleman; charming, warm and thoughtful who also wants to ensure your expectations are met. We were so impressed with his desire to please.

What sets him apart from other guides is his amazing attention to detail and he generously gave his time to discuss things the day before. He even also offered to accompany us to the correct ticket desk for travel over the next few days. I really cannot recommend him highly enough.
