Tour: #564287, Full Day South Okinawa UNESCO World Heritage Sites Tour, Okinawa, Japan    view tour
Date: May 27/19

My wife and I were welcomed by Kumiko at the Okinawa cruise port. We got to see UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the island. The Tours By Locals website is easy to use for tour reservations and payments are secure with Paypal. It helps that we were able to communicate through email from our home and cruise ports to set up the all day tour according to our interests and preferences. Kumiko knows where to go for a good Japanese seafood lunch at a reasonable price. She made sure we had great tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Milton san, Thank you very much for your good rating on the tour! I am very happy to know you liked the seafood lunch. I also had a great time at every place we went together with a friendly, kind couple like you! I hope you will use ToursByLocals again to visit Okinawa to explore more charms of Okinawa!

Date: Apr 21/19

Kumiko is an excellent guide. She is passionate, knowledgeable and adjusts the itinerary to your needs. We had lunch at many wonderful restaurants that only the locals know, where the food was fresh, well prepared and at really good prices. We wanted more of a unique experience, and Kumiko was able to really plan our visits according to what we asked for. She not only met, but exceeded expectations. Would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Helena san, thank you very much for your kind comment! I really had a lot of fun showing your family around Okinawa! I am very grateful to you for giving a great opportunity to meet your happy, friendly family! I hope you will visit Okinawa again to explore more in our beautiful islands!

Tour: Blue Zone Okinawa Tour for Sameer and Tim on April 15 (Day Five), Okinawa, Japan
Date: Apr 15/19

Had a sanshin lesson with a wonderful elderly couple, which was the perfect way to wrap up our 5-day blue zone tour. Highly highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a comprehensive overview/understanding/immersion in the Okinawan blue zone culture. I've been to 2 of the other 5 blue zones and this was really the best way to see a blue zone! Kumiko is attentive, thorough, and always ready to help adjust the tour to your needs. Was a packed schedule with unforgettable experienxe

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sameer san, thank you so so much for your kind review despite of your busy schedule. I am happy to know that you liked the customized tour! I just tried to make it something that gives you a good idea for your new business with elderly people. I really appreciate that you gave me a wonderful opportunity of creating the blue zone tour. It was fun to tour around Okinawa with you as we made good friends with local senior citizens! I hope you will visit Okinawa again to make them happy and live longer!

Tour: Blue Zone Okinawa Tour for Sameer and Tim on April 14 (Day Four), Okinawa, Japan
Date: Apr 14/19

Amazing tour with an early morning start participating in a radio morning workout with Okinawan elders (average age of the elders was 82!). We then had a 2 hour karate session with a famous 74 year old sensei... such unique experiences that left us with an even deeper understanding of this blue zone's culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sameer san, Thank you very much for your kind review. I am happy to know that you deepened your understanding of the longevity of Okinawa: not only in Ogimi Village but also in other parts of Okinawa, there are still secrets you can find from the culture and lifestyle of Okinawa. I am looking forward to our Day 5!

Action packed tour learning about vegetable art, gateball, and doing the minpaku program (home stay) with a wonderful elderly couple.

We learned a lot on this tour about Okinawan culture and enjoyed being so close to the locals

Date: Apr 11/19

Kumiko-san picked us up from the airport with a thoughtful, handcrafted welcome sign - so cute! She was exceptionally knowledgeable about everything to do with Okinawa, longevity, and the blue zones. She got us invited to a very unique experience with Okinawan elderly people at their community centre where we enjoyed karaoke and dancing with the elders. Also enjoyed the fresh food market where we ate a delicious lunch. Can't wait for the next 4 days!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sameer san, thank you very much for your kind review! Your participation in the event at the community hall made the senior citizens very happy! Also I am happy to know my favorite farmers market! I will be looking forward to our next 4 days as well!

Tour: Full-Day Okinawa Private Tour for Mr. Leif Öster, Okinawa, Japan
Date: Apr 6/19

A perfect introduction to Okinawa We had a nice day with our guide. Our ambitious guide Kumiko gave us an good introduction to the island. She made a tailormade day with history, gardens and local food. Our guide have a lot of important knowledge and she work with a very god driver with a nice car. The only little problem is that the Okinawa-English is little hard to understand for us coming from Sweden

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Leif Öster, Thank you very much for your kind review! I am happy that all of your group members enjoyed the customized tour. I will try to speak English more slowly and clearly. I hope you will visit Okinawa again to explore more charms about the beautiful islands! With Warmest Regards, Kumiko T.
