Okinawa Private Tours

Okinawa tours, Okinawa private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
Welcome to the balmy island of Okinawa-Honto, home to swaying palm trees and unique culinary, artistic and musical traditions. Take a private Okinawa tour with a local guide and discover the best parts of the island, while experiencing the gracious hospitality of your Japanese host.

In the city of Naha, you can walk through a 500-year-old stone gate to Shurijo Castle, a designated World Heritage site and former home of the Okinawan Royal Family. Your guide can help you shop for a unique souvenir in Tsuboya, the city's traditional centre of ceramics production since the 17th century. Enjoy a colourful walk along Kokusai Street, Naha's main shopping and entertainment avenue, and stop for lunch at one of many charming cafes. Outside of the city, you can explore the incredible Gyokusendo Limestone Cave, a nearly 5km-long underground network of caves dripping with stalactites.

Your guide is looking forward to customizing a unique Okinawa tour just for you!

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
