Great one-day trip

Reviewed by: Riccardo, 2020/01/14

If you are staying in Sapporo some days, and you need a relax-one, this trip is perfect. Well balanced on-foot-times and bus-times, great lunch location and awesome landscapes to see. The view from the top of the Mt. Tengu ropeway is a must-see of Hokkaido.

A good trip to Otaru by Chuo bus company

Reviewed by: LydiaTeo, 2019/02/12

This trip is with audio guide in English. As the journey starts, the audio guide narrates the history of the town of Sapporo then Otaru. Its better than a life guide. I get to know so much information sbout Sapporo. The lady guide is very helpful and is able to converse in understandable English. The driver will greet us regardless of how many times we go up and down the bus.
The schedule of visiting places is moderate. We get to taste Otaru wine of all varieties, visit Otaru canal, brewery, walk around the shops for souveniers and the best of all- a trip up Mt Tengu. The scenary is awesome! The scenary at the top is really picturesque! Like a painting. Another commendable thing is the lunch. The
hotel is grand and we had buffet with a widespread of different cuisines! This is the best lunch from my lunch
included trips. A worthwhile trip I highly recommend.

i didn't understand much with the audio system.providing a tourist guide is better for thorough understanding of the tourist spots.two thumbs up for the lunch buffet which is included in the tour.

i had quite a hard time understanding the audio doesn't comply with what i need to know.i think an english tourist guide is much better for this tour.but the best part is the buffet lunch aside from the snowy weather,it was awesome!

  • the most coldest climate i've ever experienced during winter season.

Great experiences!

Reviewed by: Natalia, 2018/02/20

It was a great set of experiences selected, though some seemed a bit rushed and for which it would be very nice to have some more time (as the winery). Lunch was particularly amazing!!! Amazing view, amazing food. Very nice guide, helped everyone.
