Good for first time visitors

Reviewed by: Paige, 2019/07/01

Most of the people participating in this tour were attending with at least one other person, but I attended by myself but still had a really nice time. It was my first trip to Otaru, and so I appreciated that the tour covered a lot of ground around the city. The visit to the top of Mount Tengu was especially memorable and scenic. I think this tour is especially good for people who want to visit a lot of different places and not spend too much time wandering around, as there's not a ton of free time at the different stops.

Need more time in Otaru

Choice of places okay. Mt Tengu was not great - just gives a panoramic view of Otaru. Would’ve preferred more time to explore Otaru. Lunch could be shortened to one hour. Food was okay. Perhaps could have some tofu and vegetarian food too - just a simple stir fried noodles or soup curry vegetables would’ve been good.
Some direction from the guide as to what/which areas to explore in Otaru. We went the opposite way and lost some time which could’ve been spent on looking at souvenirs like glass-ware.

  • Otaru canal

  • Otaru

  • Mt Tengu
