    The tour was on time and well planned. There are headsets with multiple language that will guide you through the tour. There was really nothing much to see there except the canal. Buffet was so so there are varieties to choose from

  • Wing joy 12 Jan 2019
    Nice trip with interesting activities, loved the buffet
  • Wankanok 11 Jan 2019
    It was a great tour, the food was buffet and we enjoyed it. There is snowing on the way to Otaru which is very nice. Unfortunately, they canceled the ropeway due to heavy wind. Recommend👍🏼
  • Ely 11 Jan 2019
    Everything was good. Food was good. Tour guide & driver was patience
  • RUTH 9 Jan 2019
    We enjoyed this tour very much! It was very easy to redeem tickets especially if you arrive at station early. had a little difficulty finding the meeting place though, but its ok, thats why you should be there early. the bus is clean. driver and guide were friendly and smiley even if they speak mostly japanese. u can communicate with guide in basic english. it was snowing very hard. enjoyed the view in the canal and walking around the town. also enjoyed the yummy buffet lunch at hotel. happy we were able to ride cable car. it was almost cancelled because of the snow and wind but good thing the weather improved. when visiting sapporo, do not miss this tour! its totally worth it!!!
  • Zhao Zhi Bryce 9 Jan 2019
    Decent tour with proper amenities (wifi on bus, punctual meeting and departing timings provided). However, one problem is that the guide was speaking totally in japanese even though it was quite evident that most of the tourists were not local in the first place. Felt that this doesnt make much sense at all. Other than that, tour was fine. Managed to take nice scenic pictures at Otaru Canal and Mt Tengu!
  • laura love 3 Jan 2019
    While we appreciated the headphones that provided the information about the places in English, it somehow felt quite impersonal. There was no interaction among the people taking the tour. It also felt quite rushed as we had only a few minutes in each stop. However, the lunch was good. The snow was also quite heavy which made it difficult to appreciate the sights (Otaru Canal, Mt. Tengu).
  • Ayush 30 Dec 2018
    Great tour, the ropeway was a bit rushed though. Would recommend.
  • Wai shun 30 Dec 2018
    Good experience but language communication lack
  • Jonny 27 Dec 2018
    It’s was great, but time too short for last activity. Overall still good and the lady tour guide she very kind and try to accommodate everyone.
