At time of writing, Maction Planet is currently ranked 9th out of 298 Tokyo tour offerings listed on TripAdvisor.

Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet, said. “As always, we have our amazing guests to thank for this honour. We are now ranked in the Top 4% of all Tokyo tours – something we only dreamed about when we launched the Maction Planet website in February 2017.”

It’s incredibly motivating to read these reviews because it reflects the quality of service we provide to our guests from all over the world who experience Tokyo and beyond with us. Because we know the city so intimately, our clients have an authentic experience like no other. Many reviewers have written that their time with Maction Planet is the best tour they have ever had, anywhere in the world!”

“We have hit some further milestones since we reached 100 reviews. We have two humbling reviews for our (currently word-of-mouth) pan-Japan adventures from our guests Paul and James. We also have two reviews in German as well as two in Spanish!”

“Our efforts are dedicated to positioning Maction Planet to lead the evolution in Tokyo tourism as visitor numbers to Japan continue to grow.” Mac added

From Tokyo to the world

“On top of all the guiding and touring, Maction Planet Radio continues to go from strength to strength, we continue to see growth in sales of our T-shirts in the run up to summer, and we have launched a new weekly feature on the Maction Planet blog, ‘This Week in Tokyo’. We continue to look for new and innovative ways to bring the Maction Planet experience to you, wherever you are in the world.” said Mac.

Highlights from the reviews

My husband and I booked Mac for 2 full days in Tokyo based on the recommendation of our good friends, and we could not be happier with that the decision. Mac truly cares about your visit as much as you do… He is one of the smartest people we have ever met and also has a great sense of humor–we feel like we have a friend in Tokyo!! Thank you Mac!!” – LisaandSteven

My advice: if you are reading this review and considering hiring Mac for a day, make it two. If you’re considering two, make it a week. You won’t regret it.” – Alex P

[Mac] explodes with interesting stories and nuggets of invaluable information that throw light on this exceptional country. His own completely original and highly educated viewpoints were enlightening. He is probably the best guide we have ever had in all our years of travel. And the best part is that he never felt like a guide, but more like a friend.” – Rohan_8866

Never have I had a guide that was so funny, personable, knowledgeable, and down right fantastic to hang around. I feel like I gained a lifelong friend while having the most amazing, trip of lifetime with Mac!” – JamesNorCali

Als Japan-Neulinge haben wir zur Orientierung gleich bei Ankunft eine private Tour bei einem anderen Anbieter mit sehr guten Bewertungen gebucht, aber der Vergleich machte rasch sichtbar, dass Mac (Inhaber und Führer) einfach unschlagbar ist.” – Steven-John F

Mac’s enthusiasm is contagious and we had so much fun that night. Highly recommended. I would give 6 stars if I could. Absolutely amazing.” – Danielaoliveirasilva

Mac is an amazing tour guide. Forget about a pre-made, cookie cutter tour. Mac creates a custom tour based on your interests and wish list. His passion for Japan shines through which makes the trip interesting from start to finish. Throw in his British wit and you’ll be entertained the whole time you’re with him. We ended our day at a baseball game among his crew of dedicated friends. The highlight of the day.” – DownUnderD

Forget the stiff, boring other options.. Mac is going to show you his city with the kind of zeal that brings it to life in an unforgettable way!”SFRosey

“Don’t be a dummy; do Tokyo with Mac… Sure, there are other Tokyo tours and tour companies and you’ll probably have an OK time with them. But if you really want to experience Tokyo with a passionate local guide, go with Mac. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to experience a Swallows baseball game with him. :-)” – Jennifur85

Die Zeit verging wie im Flug und wenn wir nicht kurze Zeit später zurück nach Europa hätten reisen müssen, hätten wir am nächsten Tag am liebsten gleich mit Mac weiter gemacht. Bei unserem nächsten Tokyo-Aufenthalt werden wir auf jeden Fall versuchen, Mac wieder zu buchen.” – Nilsenmann

Mac was able to answer all our questions including those we didn’t know to ask!” – LongPaddock

“Mac manages to achieve the impossible. He makes a tour of a bewildering, hectic, overwhelming city like Tokyo an intimate experience… Utterly engaging, with the patience of a saint, he will go out of his way to make your tour a one-off experience… Don’t even think of going to Tokyo without him!” – Miren L

“Make time for Maction… You can ask the questions you were afraid to ask and you’ll get answers that are unreserved and often candid but will open your eyes in piecing together a complex and fascinating culture.

I would highly recommend contacting Mac at Maction Planet to enhance your experience whilst in Tokyo.” – Jon E

Will ONLY Do Tours with “Mac” Maction Planet When We Go to Japan Again!!… What can we say more, just read all the reviews on Mac… He is brilliant!.. We learned more in those few hours then we did with “another” full day guide only because we couldn’t get Mac to guide us the previous day because he was fully booked. Seriously, don’t do Japan without Mac!!!” – askittl

“MACnificent in every way! My brother and I had the pleasure of touring for 11 days with Mac on our first visit to Japan. I can tell you that he is a gem of a human being, incredibly bright, perfectly enthusiastic, customer obsessed, uber passionate about Japan, extremely gifted as a guide and ridiculously hilarious. I did a LOT of research before we selected Mac, so I can attest that he is hands down the very best choice for maximum value. I estimate that are trip would only have been 10% as fabulous without him. We haven’t even left Japan and we are already texting friends telling them to book early and plan their trips around Mac’s availability.” – PWB9112

“‘All killer, no filler’ in Tokyo with Maction Planet… If you value your leisure time, invest in a tour with Maction Planet. Great return guaranteed!!” – ginger_traveller2000

“Tokyo with Mac “Maction”, or no Tokyo at all!!! If you are headed to Tokyo, Touring with Mac is a must. Do not bother going at all unless you book time with Mac. If he is booked, reschedule your trip to when he is available… We had many requests and needs that we wanted to hit in the area. We completed our list. We even completed the extra list, that we didn’t know we wanted to hit (Mac’s ideas were off the chart). I never review on Trip Advisor, but Mac was worth the time to post this review.” – Matthew M

I think the difference is that Mac is not just a “Content Provider” sort of tour guide who shows you the sights and reels off a few names and dates, he really is a “Context Provider” who explains why things are as they are. If you’ve seen a lot of tour guides in action you will truly appreciate this difference.” – Reasoned_Traveller

Los lugares que te lleva Mac no son siempre los mismos, son únicos y de acuerdo con el tipo de perfil que visita Japón. Solo dar las gracias por su enorme esfuerzo en que todo saliera perfecto. GRACIAS MAC, SALUDOS DESDE CHILE!” – Camping R

Mac is undoubtedly the BEST tour guide we have ever had in all of our travels… We have already highly recommended him to several friends. Mac has ruined it for all other tour guides to come………he is most definitely a tough act to follow.” – michellefcv

“Mac’s tour was the best I have ever had in any location.” – econandy
