Great paced, leisure tour

Reviewed by: Hansen, 2020/02/13

The tour is really well paced, and since it finishes in the afternoon it's not rushed or feels too long. The crane observatory has a lot of birds, and we were given enough time on each place. The tour also includes lunch-the tempura set is delicious! The route passes through along the toro river, and the snowy scenery is really beautiful. To get on the tour, the terminal is just two minute walk away from the station, near the super hotel; so it's convenient. There are toilets and small food shop on the waiting terminal. The guide was active and narrated the places well.

Beautiful Birds on a Beautiful Day! いい天気と美しい野鳥見えました

Reviewed by: Max, 2018/02/26

This was a wonderful tour for anyone who is interested in wildlife and nature. The staff at the check-in desk at the bus terminal were very helpful and friendly and the bus was easy to find. The bus itself was comfortable and clean. The tour was a good length; not too short and not too long. And we stayed on schedule the entire day. Our tour guide was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and even spoke a little bit of English.

I wish we could have spent more time at the Akan International Crane Reserve. One hour was a little too short, as I wanted to watch the cranes more. But still, it was really incredible to see them in the wild. There were up to 100 wild cranes and several dozen swans within just a few meters away. A very special experience!

The lunch was small, but of good quality. I'd recommend bringing your own snacks and drinks with you as well.

All in all, a very good tour for a great price.
