VICENTE BRAVO

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.

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!

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.

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.
