自分達で回るだけでは分からない小樽の街の魅力や歴史を楽しいトークで十二分に伝えてくれるので、参加した後はすっかり小樽が大好きになりました。 人力車に正直興味の無かった私たち夫婦ですが、こんなに楽しいなら他の街でも乗ってみようと思えるくらい満足度が高かったので興味があったり、悩んでいたりするのであれば是非体験してみることを強くオススメします。お値段以上の価値のある思い出深い体験になると思います。

夜景を楽しみ、お話しを楽しみ、パッと撮ってくれる写真がすごい綺麗! 記憶にも残るし、美味しいお店なども教えてくれる。 絶対乗ったら損しないと思います。 金額は手軽に出せる額ではないですが、あの額であの時間人を乗せて走り、楽しませて、写真も撮ってくれ、良い情報もくれる…めっちゃ安いなと思いました。満足度MAX。 また次も乗りたい!

としちゃん最高! 楽しかった! 楽しい話し方と観光スポットのセレクトで大満足! また小樽に行った際には是非とも利用したいです。 小樽運河の成り立ちが埋立式であることや、建物が煉瓦造でない理由など、非常に為になるガイドが満載。 これから小樽に行かれる方には是非とも利用されることをおすすめします。 (^-^)

We had a fun ride with our Rickshaw driver Yuki. We liked his attire. He provided us with interesting information about Otaru. He was professional and friendly. We highly recommend him if you are coming here.

A rather unique way to get around but if you can handle other tourists taking photos of you, one I endorse. The fitness of our driver (puller?)Mitsu was amazing for a 2 hour tour with only short breaks for photos. He took several photos of us in the rickshaw as well, which turned out excellent. Otaru is a compact city and much can be seen in a short time. If you do take a rickshaw in Otaru I suggest asking for Mitsu who apart from his rickshaw capabilities also speaks English. Very handy for non Japanese speaking Australians.

夫婦で観光に訪れました。少し時間があったので、どうしようか思案していたところ、工藤さんにお声がけ頂きました。笑顔がとても素敵で、歩いて巡るのも大変なところ、詳しく案内もしてくれて、とても楽しい観光になりました。次も違うコースをお願いしたいと思います。工藤さんありがとう!

小樽駅を出て、目の前の下りの坂道を見て主人が一言、タクシーで降りる。 あまり歩けない主人のために、人力車をお願いしようと思っていたので、タクシーで人力車のお兄さんたちがいるところまで行きました。5分くらいで着いたんですが・・・ 今回お願いしたのは1時間半コース。この旅行前にちょうどブラタモリで地層のこととかやっていたので、その場所も教えてもらったり、お土産街も運河沿いもほとんど網羅してもらいました。 楽しかったです。人力車は道路を通るので、車がそばをビュンビュン走って行きますが、しっかりとした走りで、全く不安感なし。場所の説明もはっきりとした声でしてくれるので、喧噪のなかでもシニア夫婦が聞き取れるのが良かったです。 最後に主人がこれははずせないと言っていた鶏の半身揚げを食べるために「なると屋」まで連れて行ってもらいました。 あのすごい上り坂を二人も乗せて、運河から小樽駅そばまで、一生懸命人力車を引っ張ってくれました。 感謝感激でした。 楽して観光できて、これほど楽しいことはありませんでした。

運河を観ようと、女房と歩いていたら、大木さんに、声をかけられました。明るい笑顔と、逞しい肉体に、女房は、すっかり、魅せられ、ツァーを頼みました。折角、小樽の来たので、45分ツァーを依頼。大木さんの、絶妙で、ユーモアたっぷりのトークに、我々二人も、ファンになってしまいました。教師から、車夫に転職した、彼の経歴にも、感動し、あっという間の、45分間でした。これから、行きたかった、吹きガラスの工房も見つかり、小樽の魅力を、満喫できました。本当の、楽しく、心に残った、ひとときに、感謝、感謝です。大木さんも、体に気をつけて、頑張って下さい!

滞在ホテル発着で、小樽を離れる前の貴重な30分を、車夫の吉田光さんが、爽やかな風の中で演出してくれました。歴史や建築の知識が自然なトークで紹介され、思い出に残る旅となりました。ありがとうございました。全国の支店で人力車をひいてきたとか。いつか、ぜひ鎌倉でも!

運河の橋の袂で声をかけられ、令和初日ということでお願いすることに。運河をメインに人力車で案内してもらったが、ブラタモリのような内容でなるほど!と思うことも多い。要所要所では写真を撮ってくれるのだが、スマホの編集機能で見栄えのするものに早替り!この俥夫さん、シーズンによっては京都でも引いているのだそう。

ツアーで小樽運河に来ました。北海道に来たら良く来るので、4回目か、何時もツアーで参加しますので、何時も時間不足。以前連れが、人力車に乗って短時間内に観光ポイント的確に回れたとの事で、今回も利用しました。 糖尿気味の「小太りの初老」二人が乗って、重くて大丈夫~と心配しましたが、若いお兄さんは元気モリモリ。軽やかに走りながら、時には立ち止まって観光地点を丁寧に解説。その博学には驚いてしまいました。二人で30分、9,000円コースを利用しました。

We had a wonderful and knowledgeable guide who made every minute of the rickshaw tour exciting. It was obvious he had studied the areas we toured, had a superb sense of humor, and fine talent in photography. Photography is his hobby and he set up our photos so that the lighting for each shot was perfect. Looking at the photos he took of us in the richshaw will bring back unforgettable memories of that day in snowy Otaru. We were so happy that we signed up for this event and had the luck of being assigned the tour guide that we had. I'm sorry I forgot this talented young man's name but I'm sure you can find his name in your records.

This was our first experience with Viator and we were so pleased not only with the event, but how they set up the tour purchase and provided excellent contact information with their on-site office. I was able to contact a real person from the time of purchase as well as in the days prior to the tour for confirmation purposes. Because of this, I will continue to book with Viator in the future.

We did a 2 hour Rickshaw Tour Of Otaru with Ebisuya. This is our second Rickshaw Tour, first one was last year in Arashiyama in April during Sakura Blossoms. As with our first tour our guide, “Toshi” was amazing. We went around in Otaru in the snowy street and learned a lot about Otaru’s history and it’s buildings and scenic sites. We ended up with the best photos of our vacation, taken by Toshi. I brought a gift from San Francisco for our Rickshaw Guide, last time I had to force our guide to accept our tip. I brought a hoodie with San Francisco, CA logo and See’s Candy. I’m so glad I did because we really appreciate our guide. It was a beautiful sunny day with snowy slippery roads which made it harder for our Rickshaw Guide. Thank you Toshi for a wonderful trip.

Our super friendly guide (Gucci) took us on a tour of the canal area for half an hour. Even with snowy weather we wrapped up warm and were taken on a 30 min tour of Otaru with our English speaking guide. A great experience and would recommend it to anyone.

I would recommend this fun and informative guided tour. We arrived in Otura aboard a princess cruise and were met by the guides at the pier. We had booked two rickshaws before we left Australia and they were waiting just a we got off the ship. The two young men were very helpful in getting us settled in and they showed us around Otura for one hour, stopping along the way with information and photo stops. they took plenty of photos of us in the rickshaws with tourist back drops. IT was a very rainy day and we did not get wet with all the extra rain wear they placed over us. Overall it was a great way to see Otura.

I an travelling with a friend on a one day trip to Otaru and we highly recommend the rickshaw tour activities to do. Our rickshaw guide, Shota is the best. Although his English is limited, but his explanation about the area is well enough for us to understand. And he is very kind too. Not to mention, very professional at capturing candid photo. We highly recommend for those who is visiting Otaru. These guys are amazing runners and they bring you to the less crowded place where you get to see the old buildings of Otaru.

We (couple) were lured to have a ride on a rickshaw near the Chuo Bridge over the Otaru Canal. A young boy took us around for about fifteen minutes with some sketchy explanations. Frankly speaking, it wasn’t worth the price. It was too short, guiding information too simple to truly enjoy the historical background of the region, and too expensive at JPY4,000 for the contents (ride and guiding.) The tour should be at least 60 minutes, but it will be way too expensive at JPY17,500 for two people. Not recommended.

Our guide was Gucchi-San. He was charming, funny, and a great photographer too! Every little detail of the trip, from hot packs on the seat and double blankets to keep us warm, to his detailed and interesting "walking" history tour of the older warehouse district was just fantastic. Gucchi-San made what could have been a boring trudge through nameless buildings a real treat. It did feel a bit strange having someone carry us about town like that, almost exploitative, but we really had a good time. If you find yourself in Otaru, which has a beautiful canal flanked by centennial architecture, I highly recommend taking the time to enjoy this amazing service. You won't regret it!
