  • SEOK EONG 30 Sep 2018
    A very insightful tour, the audio explanation of Hokkaido city & the lakes are excellent.
  • Normalah 8 Sep 2018
    Loved the places they brought on this trip. Just felt it was too rushed as we were only given a short amount of time at each place. Lunch was really good. Pity the weather was so bad that day - else our photos and experience would have been so much better.

    This tour offers spectacular views of Lake Shikotsu and Toya. My favorite part was going up to the ropeway into an observatory that features breathtaking view of Mount Usu and Lake Toya and the delicious Yubari melon ice cream sold there (must try!). The tour started and ended promptly. PS. When in Sapporo Bus Terminal Area, go up to the second floor, sightseeing area counter to exchange your Klook Voucher.

    It was a nice tour there. The tour guide is good and friendly. However, would like to clarify that the meet up point is at Sapporo Station Bus Terminal, but the bus terminal is so big. We could not find the guide. The meet up point is actually at the 2nd floor - sightseeing counter. Overall the tour is good.

  • Bee Hong 22 Jul 2018
    Amazing view, nice weather, nice tour guide. Is worth for money with 10 hrs of trip to few places including lunch
  • Sook Kuan Candice 4 Jul 2018
    Booked the day tour because I was bringing 4 elderly (aged 57-70yo) with me. Was worried there are many stairs to climb but fortunately manageable and the Japanese staff were flexible if you request for help. The only down side is that the waiting area at the Sapporo bus terminal had no lift access, and lift access via the mall was only opened at 10am. So we had to recce the place ourselves, and found that the elderly could wait on first floor at the various entrances of the bus terminal near Hotel Nikko. One of us accompanied the parents, while another went to the counter to wait and update on the situation. The bus usually departs from Berth 17 which is nearest to the Chuo bus counter, which is accessible by crossing the road where all the bus berths are. the multi-lingo is a nice addition and you can listen to it in the comfort of the seat on ear phones provided. We were lucky that weather was goood and had clear skies that day. My favourite was taking the cable car up to see the lakeview.... however there wasn't enough time to explore the other side of the stairs. The Melon ice cream up at Mt Usu station is a must-try!!!! It's the yummiest ice-cream of our whole trip! The volcano museum was also interesting. We were given the most time here so other places felt even more tight for time, especially since elderly cannot walk too fast and hence they are not able to venture too far off. Food looked sumptuous but tasted average. Someone said he had time for onsen but since one can't go for onsen until 30mins later after food, onsen was not possible. Also, felt that I had to rush through food if I wanna explore the place more and to take more pictures. The time part is a pity but understandable as it covers more areas. The seats on the coach are rather narrow even for average sizes. Also, we didn't book very early and thus we were all separated. So book early if u want to sit together.
