We bumped into Hiro by accident when hailing a taxi and booked him for a tour the next day.
What a good day. He took us everywhere, speaks excellent English and has a good knowledge of Kyoto and Japanese history.
The fact that our 2 teenagers (age 17 and 14) really enjoyed the day says it all.
We would recommend him unhesitatingly.

Hi Michael,

Thanks very much for your positive review of your taxi tour! We are so happy that our driver could entertain not only you, but your whole family :) Kyoto is a wealth of beauty, both open and hidden, and MK Kyoto driver/guides are experts at showing our valuable customers as much as they can in the time they have! Thanks again for your review, and we look forward to maybe welcoming you back another day ;)

Kyoto is a beautiful and inspiring city full of great food and astonishing history and culture. It was made all the better by our kind and gracious driver/guide Shozo Saka who looked after myself, my wife and two young children for a day. He was thoughtful, knowledgable and very experienced and helped us have a wonderful day as he patiently drove us from place to place around the city. He helped us with luggage, pushchairs and local information. He knew the history of the places we visited, helped us take photographs and was patient and very kind. We couldn’t recommend a guide more strongly and couldn’t have had a nicer day. Thank you, Shozo San.

Thank you so much Jeremy, and welcome to the world of Shozo fans! As a brief glance at many of the reviews below will show, Shozo is our MOST popular driver/guide, famed for amazing and satisfying customers from all over the world for decades at MK! He, like all of our private guide/drivers, really does his best to make sure that his customers have a great time here, and embodies the Japanese spirit of 'omotenashi' perfectly. He ,and we, really appreciate you taking the time to write this review, and hopefully we'll have the pleasure of welcoming you back some day again?! Thanks again.

I tried both MK and other services like KLOOK and I must say that MK's service exceeds its competitor by miles!! We were very impressed with the extra ancillary services provided in the car (wifi, heat pad, water, umbrella etc), cleanliness of the vehicle, pro-active engagement by the driver to help manage our itinerary and very skilled driving. Highly recommended!! Remember to book in-advance because MK is popular!
