Southern Okinawa Cultural Bus Tour with Optional Naha Airport Drop-Off

Great budget tour of Okinawa

Reviewed by: UCCHANG, 2015/01/06

Though I have visited Sefa-Utaki and the Himeyuri monument before, I decided to revisit them while listening to the explanation of the tour conductor. The fee for the tour was cheap at 900 Yen, so I was a bit skeptical about the quality when getting on the bus. After arriving at Sefa-Utaki we were asked about whether we wanted to visit Mibaru Beach or Okinawa World. I chose Okinawa World as I wanted to go to the Gyokusan Cave. Then we paid a visit to Himeyuri Tower then the airport, and finally ended at Palette Kumoji around 13:20.
As a number of people got off at the airport, I felt that many people participated in the tour before the they flew home.

Although had to get together kind of early in the morning and had to pay for the admission at each sightseeing spot, it was a good tour as we could around the sights efficiently.

Our guide this time joined the company in less than 1 year ago. She was so enthusiastic in her work. We felt her enthusiasm, which was contagious!

The price of the tour is cheaper than the bus that runs in the city, in fact it is an incredible deal. When you go sightseeing in southern Okinawa, I strongly recommend this half day tour.

Southern Okinawa Cultural Bus Tour with Optional Naha Airport Drop-Off

Great half day tour

Reviewed by: Rin, 2017/04/30

Nice half day tour with drop off at airport for afternoon flights. All destinations were great, and we felt the time allocated for each destination was decent. Our tour guide was friendly and made sure we understood what time we needed to be back for each destination even though the tour is meant to be Japanese only. The English audio guide wasn't working, but we were ok with that. The timing of the tour was accurate so we had plenty of time to catch our flight after.

Naha Airport to Churaumi Aquarium Direct Tour (14:00 Departure)

Great Churaumi Aquarium Tour

Reviewed by: Sam, 2016/06/30

Since I missed the full day bus tour (remember to book it at least a day ahead), so I booked the direct tour to the Aquarium at the last minute. It was very a very fun trip.

The Aquarium is amazing it totally deserve a full day visit alone. But if you're on short notice or already planned something to do in the morning, direct bus tour is not a bad option at all since it starts afternoon and much easier than taking the bus yourselves.

Southern Okinawa Cultural Bus Tour with Optional Naha Airport Drop-Off

Value for money!

Reviewed by: Faith Cheong, 2017/05/06

If you need to catch a noon flight out of Okinawa, I strongly recommend this tour. It allows storage of luggages and drops off at Naha Airport! Travelling to Sefa Utaki, Mibaru Beach or Okinawa World from Naha and to the airport would cost about as much, or even more, by bus. This is perfect and convenient.

The audio guide is not working for those of us who doesn't understand Jap though.

Cheap and cheerful!

Reviewed by: Jilly, 2017/11/04

This tour was an easy, comfortable and inexpensive way to see places if you don’t have a car.
As advertised, the commentary is in Japanese (and there is a LOT of commentary!) and the English headphone commentary could barely be heard. We don’t speak Japanese but the lovely guide always made sure we knew where to go and when to be back on board the bus.

Great

Reviewed by: Koume, 2015/02/02

We spent the time after arriving at the airport on this tour very efficiently.
It was so impressed by the big whale sharks who swim elegantly in the water that I forgot about the time. The sunset that we watched from the aquarium was so beautiful.

Good cost/performance

Reviewed by: Toorisugari, 2016/02/24

Used this on my last day. They drop you off at the airport and let you keep your luggage on the bus, so you can wander around freely. We saw three different spots for just 1400 yen, so cheap!
Highly recommend.

Reviewed by: Adventurer , 2019/02/01

Good service by the bus guide. If you do Nor speak Japanese, they will provide you with an audio of 4 other languages including English. The bus schedule was on time and the time spent at each attractions is enough to have a good experience.

Reviewed by: Emi, 2015/02/02

I really wanted to go to the Churaumi aquarium but it was far than we expected so we found this tour to avoid renting a car.
I think it's a good deal if you want to see the aquarium. Very satisfied!

We chose Option B on 6th November so we can have plenty of time to explore Mibaru Beach and Hamabe-no-Chaya (Café 'Time). The scenery is picturesque and it is well worth going on a tour like this if you do not drive.

Southern Okinawa Cultural Bus Tour with Optional Naha Airport Drop-Off

Great tour to fit your last day, but a bit rushed.

Reviewed by: Yan, 2016/01/11

The pick up time was a bit early, but this tour was well arranged. Most of the tourists were Japanese. We were the only foreigners onboard. The tour guide only spoke Japanese, but she was attentive and gave us audio devices. She also did a good job memorizing her speeches and talked non-stop on our way to the destinations. There were some traffic jams along the way due to the narrow roads, but we got to each destination very much on time.

The path to Sefa-Utaki requires you to walk up hill along a stone path. It's a nice quiet place and it gives you a nice view of the ocean.

The stay at Okinawa World and the Gyukusendo Cave was too short, we should be given more time there to explore around. The cave itself is humid and it will take at least 30 minutes to walk the entire length of it (taken into account photo shooting time), I advise you to wear just a t-shirt while you're in there, because you will be sweating a bit with all the walking.

We ended up at the airport early at around 12:30 noon and had plenty of time before the actual check-in. I think it's better if the tour organizer can allocate more time for us to explore around at each destination, especially at Okinawa World. Overall, this is a nice and inexpensive tour to end the trip.

Southern Okinawa Cultural Bus Tour with Optional Naha Airport Drop-Off

Recommended for History lovers

Reviewed by: Kantheera, 2017/07/16

I was a great half-day trip for those who have an afternoon flight or had no rental car like us!

All the attractions (Seifa-utaki, Okinawa world/Mibaru beach, and Himeyuri) are quite far from Naha city unless you rent a car. So I recommend this tour if you don't or can't drive.

Even though the tour guide doesn't speak English, she (if I'm not wrong, her name is Nakamura-san) did her best to help us, which I really appreciated,

But as it was a half-day trip, there was not much time, especially Okinawa World which we had only about an hour, so we only enjoyed the Cave, didn't actually spending time on the Village and snake museum. (alternatively, you can go the Mibaru beach instead - choose either)

Sata-andagi was given for free at Himeyuri too.

The cost doesn't include admission fees, but in total, it was an acceptable amount of money (Seifa-utaki=300yen, Okinawa World=1440yen(free pass), Himeyuri=310yen)

It was a memorable trip. I learned quite a lot about Okinawa History. However, i got burned a lot (it's a very hot summer anyway) so put on sunscreen and enjoy!

Nice tour

Reviewed by: Yann, 2015/08/08

It was a nice tour, we spend some good time (even if it was a bit of a rush) in a restaurant on the beach and visited the really beautiful Sefa-Utaki. Being non fluent Japanese speaker, the Himeyuri memorial wasn't very interesting for us, but we spent some time shopping in the shop near the memorial. The guide was very nice and agreeable.

Although we do not understand Japanese, we can feel the hospitality of our tour guide. She sang us 3 Japanese songs and they were nice. The tour expense covers only the transportation cost but it is still value for money. The translation kit does not work.

Naha Airport to Churaumi Aquarium Direct Tour (14:00 Departure)

Rough start, but great activity for those who other morning plans

Reviewed by: Looking to Relax, 2018/01/07

Once the tour got started, it was very satisfactory. It was nice to have an option for an afternoon start. The bus was comfortable and the staff was polite. The time allowed for the tour was perfect, and, since the whale shark feeding is done around 5:00, we were there for that main event.

The only thing that put a damper on the whole experience is that we could not find the guide at the departure meeting spot in the airport lobby. She was standing there the whole time with a sign that had the name of the tour written in large katakana characters. Even though I saw her and read the sign, it did not occur to me that that was my tour because the name was completely different from the name in this ad and the name of the activity provider was listed in very small print in the corner of the sign and nowhere else. When I told her why we couldn’t find her, she didn’t seem to aware of the English ad her company is running. Anyone who doesn’t read katakana or doesn’t know what the name of this tour in Japanese will likely have a rough start. I doubt they will fix this issue (by putting the activity name listed in this ad on their sign when people make reservations through this site) because they don’t seem to think this is a problem and said that is was Veltra’s fault that the name was different.
My party was stressed and irritated with me when the departure time was upon us and I couldn’t find the guide and then, when we figured out the issue, no one apologized - not the tour guide, not the activity provider’s clerk who we called, so I was stressed and and really wasn’t in the mood for a two-hour bus ride with these people or to be genki upon the guide’s request. Still glad I didn’t walk away and thankful for this option, but wish it would have gone more smoothly.

  • Whale shark feeding- this image doesn’t do the event justice. It was awesome!

Naha Airport to Churaumi Aquarium Direct Tour (14:00 Departure)

Time saver

Reviewed by: Ajai Robin, 2016/12/18

We reached Naha around 12.00 Noon. So direct tour from Airport to Aquarium was really a time saver.
Around 1.30 PM we could easily find our tour guide inside the Airport itself.

The bus trip was average but really worth for money. Tour guide spoke only 'Japanese'. :-(
She was explaining a lot to travelers and most of them were enjoying the explanation.
We got one translator device from the bus. But we were unable to use it.

Inside aquarium, we got enough time to roam around and took many photos.

After the trip, they dropped us right in front of Kise Beach Palace where we stayed.

Tour Guide and the Driver were very friendly.
If they had some English explanation, I wound have given them 4 stars.
