A Recent Review of this tour

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.
