Outstanding comprehensive Hokkaido tour!
For my mother’s 70th birthday, me and a long time family friend booked a trip with Yasuda-san at Hokkaido Treasure Island Travel for one week at the end of August to early Sept in 2018.
We had an outstanding experience, each hotel was unique and almost always had a modern onsen spa which was a great way to end a day after a variety of excursions .
Our driver, Masato-san was fantastic. His English was much better than we expected, so was very easy to communicate. Due to weather we had to change and improvise a few of our excursions, but because of Masato-san’s in-depth knowledge of Hokkaido, we were able to see and do some alternative things that ended up being equally interesting as the planned excursion.
Out of 5, I would rate our hotels a 4.5, food at hotels a 4.8, excursions, guides, & sights a 4.8, Masato-san our driver a 5, and working with Yasuda-san at HTIT, a definite 5.
Very well thought out and highly customized tour by Yasuda-san for the whole party’s interests and stayed within a very manageable budget (higher than typical tour, but very reasonable for the exceptional quality).
I think our 7 day tour was the perfect amount of time to thuroughly experience Hokkaido, and I would highly recommend this tour company. My mother is already talking about a return trip!
