We had a group of four people and wanted to get away from the tourist traps and see the area. Masumi could not have been more helpful and showed us exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend her.
Amazing experience in a really well organised tour, from the moment I stepped out of my accommodation I was greeted in a comfortable car, I did not have to worry about anything, I just relaxed and let my professional guide keep time and point in the right direction. We hit all the points of interest that met my expectations. Masumi was in communication with me prior to the tour and she hand picked the right locations, she understood exactly what I wanted, and had much great information about the areas, A+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for finding me on this site and the good rate. I had a great time with you, too. I wish I could have more time to talk with you. I am sure you are enjoying a special time in Shizuoka now. I am looking forward to having the photo you took for me. I hope you could come to Okinawa again in the near future. Best wishes for your new business! I am now so interested in Mexican food, or food originated in Mexico!

Masumi's command of the English language is superb! We had a wonderful time with her, especially her choice of a typical Okinawa restaurant. I would recommend her for any tour you are considering of this city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the rating. I hope you had a wonderful time in Ishigaki as well.

I've never been disappointed when I've chosen ToursByLocals. Their guides have always been outstanding. Masumi was one of the best. She treated our group of 12 like family. In spite of being delayed in getting off the ship, we still were able to see Shuri Castle, Okinawa World, and Kokusai Street. Masumi is very personable and helpful. She took care of my mother-in-law while the rest of us walked through Gyokusendo Cave, and she helped us navigate a street market, answering all our questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the rating. I had a good time with all of you. Hope you will come back to Okinawa in the future again.

Masumi took us on a few adventures over our 3 days with her. Highlights included Chuarumi Aquarium, Pineapple Park and Zamami island...paradise!! We are all looking forward to returning to Okinawa!!

Masumi was an excellent guide and was adaptable to modify the tour the day of our arrival to allow for viewing of a local parade with participants in local costumes, She did a great job in showing us many places on Okinawa and her knowledge of local history and customs enhanced the tour. Our group would definitely recommend Masumi to anyone looking for a great day in Okinawa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the rating. I enjoyed the time with your party. I hope you will visit Okinawa again to see different parts and I would be happy to be your tour guide again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Carol for the good rating and comment. I enjoyed thee tour with your group, too. I hope you could come to Okinawa again in the near future!

Masumi is a lovely person and very knowledgeable about her adopted island of Okinawa. We had a really nice day with our personal favourite location being the Peace Park which is beautifully laid out and with extremely interesting exhibits relating to the war and battles on Okinawa of which we knew little before we arrived. Masumi's lovely nature, knowledge and organisation made for a really good tour and the taxi and driver were both high quality as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for using my service and a warm comment. I was happy to be your tour guide. I hope you will come to Okinawa again in the future.

We had a great personalized tour by Masumi that was a nice mix of WWII memorial sites and beautiful natural viewpoints on Okinawa. She helped us find (lookup was in Japanese) a relative who was killed during the Battle of Okinawa at Memorial Peace Park and find their name on the Cornerstone of Peace memorial. While expensive for us, her tour allowed us the flexibility to see and do exactly what was most important to us in the time we had and have someone who could answer all our questions.

Masumi was a fantastic guide! I am the Sensei of an American karate school, and I brought students to train in Okinawa. She was very knowledgeable, great with kids, and she made all the difference on our Northern Okinawa tour (compared to a day when we toured on our own). We plan to make this an annual trip, and look forward to working with Masumi again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating and comment. I really enjoyed the day with you. I am looking forward to seeing you all again in the near future!
