My six-year-old daughter and I spent the week at Nozawa Onsen and wanted to take a break from the slopes to see the snow monkeys. Although there were advertised tours in town, I went online to research all of our options and to check out reviews before deciding on the combo tour offered by Snow Monkey Resorts (1-Day Winter Tour From Nozawa & Iiyama: Snow Monkeys, Zenko-ji Temple & Sake). Booking the tour on the company website was very quick and easy, as I found the site both informative and user friendly. I received an email one day prior to the tour to verify the meeting place and time of departure. Tour guide Peter was extremely personable and went above and beyond my expectations with his thorough knowledge about the areas we visited as well as the snow monkeys themselves—even knowing each one by name. After the tour was over (and for several weeks later), my six year old daughter went on and on about how she missed Peter and hoped that he was doing okay. What a lovely way to spend a beautiful, snowy day; I couldn’t be happier with the entire experience and highly recommend this tour to others (with or without children).

This tour was an incredible experience. Peter was an amazing guide and was super knowledgeable about all aspects. He definitely has a lot of personal passion for Japanese culture and was so willing to share it. I am super grateful to him for opening up this world to me!

I booked a tour with Peter and Snow Monkey Resorts based on the recommendation of a friend and I'm so glad I did! Every part of the tour was perfect. Peter and the company flexed to accommodate our group, making the trip possible in the first place. From there, every stopbwas great. Pick up was easy, and communication was great. We first visited the temple where Peter provided the kind of context for what we were seeing that really made the visit different from other temples I've seen in the past. Sake and lunch were both super good and very fun. From there, the Snow Monkeys did not disappoint. The whole process was so easy through the tour and the background and fun details Peter provided again made a big difference on how interesting and fun it all was. Overall, an great time. The tour is well organized and my group of 4 had so much fun. Peter is very informed on all the stops, but we also had a lot of fun and interesting conversation between stops. For a group of 23-year-olds we had a great time. I would recommend to anyone!

Peter was the perfect host. Started with him agreeing to give us a tour when there was no available booking initially and being so flexible with the time. We went to Zenko-ji Temple, then did some sake tasting and lunch, and ended with the snow monkeys. The temple was one of the coolest parts because Peter was genuinely interested in what he was telling us and, being from Australia himself, was able to relate our experiences as westerners to Japanese religion and culture. The transportation to the snow monkeys and back to Nagano station was a great opportunity to get to know and converse with Peter about Japan in general and his experiences. A great tour that went above and beyond expectations. Peter has my recommendation for anyone traveling to Nagano!
