    Fuss-free collection and comfortable bus ride. However, the time allocated for Otaru Bay was too short.

  • Hilarion 12 Dec 2018
    The tour was jampacked and what a memorable full day! Otaru canal, the buffet lunch, Mount Tengu, the shopping street, what a great day!
  • PEI CHUAN 22 Nov 2018
    Overall the trip is fair, but just with bad weather ( raining). We could not really walk along the Otaru street.... the lunch is good with 5 stars hotel standard- oyisi!
  • Nur Nadiah 20 Nov 2018
    Only for a relaxed day and if you enjoy the old town. Recommended for people who loves sake & wine, you can buy them for gifts too! Buffet lunch was the highlight for me. 😊
  • Raymond 7 Nov 2018
    Easy to redeem voucher. Meeting location is easy to find. Good itinerary and comfortable ride on the bus. The time allocated for each spot is sufficient. The canel is beautiful. We are very impressed with the buffet lunch at the hotel. There are a lot of varieties and food are delicious. The Japanese lady guide is very polite and smile a lot. Only down side is she speak very little English. Overall this is a good tour that I highly recommend it.
  • Yi Him 3 Nov 2018
    It was a great tour. Tour guide was friendly. It was a bit too rush though. We got back almost an hour early. Wish we had more time on the mountain.
  • Cindy 3 Nov 2018
    Great tour overall, but the time is simply not enough! Pros: - Easy to find meet-up location. - Comfortable bus with english audio support! - Friendly and helpful tour leader and bus driver - Great lunch buffet - Interesting places to visit! Otaru canal is beautiful, wine and sake tasting is delightful What can be improved: - Need more time on the tour, simply not enough time especially on the sakaimachi street section
  • Arlene 21 Oct 2018
    The tour itself was okay. But the tour guide keeps on speaking in Niponggo and all of us foreigners do not understand what she was saying. So we were basically left on our own, then upon the given time, we get to meet on the bus for the next itinerary. Maybe there should be English translation for every instruction to be given. Other than that, the tour was good.
  • Juli Denise 16 Oct 2018

  • jenny 12 Oct 2018
