Everything was great except I have problem trying to identify who to look for at the Ishigaki port terminal. thank godness the people are very friendly and managed to get the correct tour agency on time. Klook please kindly state the agency to report to for those like me who goes to the terminal direct. The tour has no tour guide that follows you from start to the end. However there are point guides that will take care of you. Its fun to visit all these 3 islands. The itinerary is very pack but sufficient time to explore. This trip is also kids friendly. Totally worth.
This is an awesome way to explore the island - you get to try the different modes of transport, buffalo cart, bicycles, ferry, bus and boat near the mangroves. You can also see the corals in the glass bottom boat. Get to feed the buffaloes and you get to see many other animals like goat, eagles and ducks on the islands. 5 stars are not enough. Highly recommended.
There is a staff reception at each point, they will have your name in hand and should not lose it, especially the staff of Taketomi Island on the last itinerary holds your name more than one foot long! Because there are no good parts in the mangroves It ’s a buffalo ride back and forth to Yufu Island. The water depth is only a few inches, and it seems that the tide is rising, but the tropical gardens on the island are not too many. In fact, I do n’t have too much lunch. I admire it very delicious! I was overjoyed when I got off the boat because a staff member was holding you to explain the time and location of the glass boat in English! The glass boat was parked on a few coral reefs. It was very close but one or two feet and many fish were swimming around! The driver was very Professional and conscientious, and the technology is very good. Although there are only four guests, the boat can be fixed on the coral reef! After taking the glass boat, the male staff will pick you up to take the buffalo! In summary, it is very exciting, but the time is very accurate Don't be late, it is very troublesome to miss the boat!
