We were only 4 so we felt more personal and intimate. Meal exceeded all our expectations. Beautiful scenery in both lakes enhanced by the amazing tour to the volcano (Mount Usu). Being an all day tour, we had plenty of time at each stop to enjoy all there was to see and do (maybe the recommendation would be to have more time at the volcano since the entire trial takes significant time to complete). Even though an English speaking tour guide was not available, we were given a lot of detailed information in advance in a tour print out booklet. Overall, a really nice and memorable experience. Highly recommended.

The colors of autumn were all over the mountain and lakes! There was a bit of snow at Mt. Usu. Tour team assigned to us was amazing! Really worth it!

Met our tour guide Sam, a young guy from Northern Territory, Australia at 7:45. We were still gas bagging at 17:30 when our day out finished. Very pleasant trip with 2 lakes, volcanos and lovely autumn colors. Lunch to boot.
Thank you.

Visited Lake Toya on my drive to Hakodate from Sapporo. The vista was amazing with the fall colours or brown, orange, red and green. The cold was welcoming for a traveller used to hot and humid climes. Trekked up the town to visit the destruction due to the volcanic activity. The town is small and quiet. Enjoyed a bowl of ramen at a small restaurant. Worth a trip !

There were only 6 of us when I joined so the trip felt more personal and intimate as we were able to have a good chat with each other. Encsi is the best tour guide as she took care of us during the trip, making sure that we were having fun. She also gave us lots of local knowledge, and great food recommendation. Overall, a really nice and memorable experience. Highly recommended.

One of the best tours we've taken in Japan. Beautiful scenery enhanced by the fall foliage colors. An all day tour we had plenty of time at each stop to enjoy all there was to see and do. Our guide was was superb. She was knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. She took us to an excellent local restaurant for a meal that exceeded all our expectations. We cannot recommend this tour more highly.

Enjoyable tour with an informative guide. All of the locations are beautiful and worth seeing. We visited some places that are tricky to get to without a car so good for those who cannot hire a car.

I had a great time on this trip as I was able to go to all the places I wanted to go to and the tour group operators were knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend anyone going to sapporo to book this tour as part of their itinerary especially if they want to visit any of these lakes as they are garde to access by public transport.

Not to be missed when in Hokkaido, a must see places. Worth the long drive, away from city life. We regret that we are unable to do kayaking while in Lake Shikotsu due to limited time

This is a great trip. I was picked up by Sam our amazing guide and as there was only 4 of us it felt like a personal tour. Have used Viator before and their trips are always well structured and informative.

As the tour was only the both of us (rather than a big group), our guide Sam offered to pick us up from our hotel, rather than the usual pick up point at Sapporo station. Sam was friendly and warm by making sure that we were entertained and provided us with many recommendations on different places to go after.


Very good experience in this tour.

Would defitnally recommend this tour to anyone.

Me and my sister enjoyed ourselves very much. The hosts were super nice and made sure that we were always ok. The trip up to the mountain was super fun and Peta always made sure that we were enjoying ourselves. On top of that, they also recommended some of the best restaurants where the locals like to eat at! I definitely will be coming back and seeing you guys soon!

Excellent day trip by tour operator Travel Hokkaido. The scenery was beautiful, along the way up the mountain and especially the views of the lakes n mountains. The tour guide Rio was very friendly n knowledgeable. He even gave us some very useful tips on the good places to go in Sapporo. The lunch was excellent n we got back to our hotel in good time. It was a very enjoyable trip.
