Kumiko is very kind, flexible, knowledgeable, and professional. We really enjoyed our tour of the Kingdom of Ryukyu UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the Tsuboya Pottery Village. She also arranged a fabulous lunch for us in a small, family-owned restaurant that was very authentically Okinawan - just as we wanted. I highly recommend Kumiko, especially for the historical perspective she provides.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kristin! Thank you very much for taking time to offer good rating! I am so happy to know that you liked the historical perspective I provide during the tour and that you found potteries of your favorite type! The local seafood restaurant owner will be happy to hear that you liked their food! I am glad that I met a lovely mother and a kind daughter who always care about her mother. I really appreciate you found me on the ToursByLocals site and hope you will visit Okinawa again!

Kumiko was great. She was on time as we met at the hotel in Naha, had the day prepared and was very knowledgeable on all sites visited. She had some very interesting local insight which added additional understanding of the sites. She is very passionate with her tours and it shows.

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!
