We visited Kyoto for a few days in April, having a fantastic guide like Maya for one afternoon really enhanced our holiday. She was extremely knowledgable and showed us all the highlights. I would highly recommend Maya as a guide, she went out of her way to be helpful and we couldn't have asked for a better guide!
Mayako-san is the best! We contacted her because we were looking for an interpreter to help us make arrangements and contact venues for our wedding in Kyoto.
We found that she was incredibly helpful and an absolute pleasure to work with. She was also prompt, very professional, intimately knowledgeable about the city, and thorough in her responses. She speaks/writes excellent English. She also has a great sense of humor and seems like the kind of person that just makes you feel at ease. We felt like she had our back and genuinely cared about our needs being met during what were some pretty specific and nuanced negotiations for rental contracts written in complex Japanese etc.
We were also very impressed by her thoughtfulness, as she (on multiple occasions) went above and beyond to help us find multiple options for things without us even having to ask. We highly recommend her for interpretation services and think she'd be a great tour guide! Doumo arigatou gozaimasu Mayako-san!
