Service: Island Tours
Provides: Giving out Medals
Hours Open: 24/7

Island Tours are the mini-games that can be played to earn medals while on the island, appearing in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

There are a wide number of different tours available, and come in three different difficulties. At first, only the ★☆☆ difficulty tours can be selected, and by earning 50+ medals, ★★☆ tours can be unlocked. Earning approx. 120+ medals wil then unlock the hard ★★★ tours. Only a selection of 12 Tours will be available from Leilani at any point in time, which changes randomly every day at 12:00 AM. Course tours (Tours with Easy, Official, and Elite variants) will always appear as a set.

Once a tour is selected, and all players on the island must be seated (in Club Tortimer, only the player who initiated the Tour has to be seated before the Tour begins, with non-seated players being left behind). The player can choose to play a game with other visiting players, or by themselves. Medals are earned from tour objectives, and bonus medals are awarded for bronze, silver or gold achievements in each tour.

In multiplayer, the required score for the games' medal milestone is often multiplied by the number of participating players. Additionally, in a select few games, bonus medals are awarded to each player depending on how much they contributed and the difficulty of the Tour.

Strategy

Although running around randomly may work in the Easy Tour, passing the Official and especially the Elite tours takes proper planning and thorough searching. Not checking even a single tree could lead to the oversight of a villager, causing the player to need to backtrack which wastes precious time. During the Elite tour, Villagers will be impossible to see more often than not from the regular player perspective. Frequent use of the UP key on the D-Pad is recommended to check behind tree trunks and underneath foliage. This gives the additional benefit of knowing where hidden pitfalls are ahead of time.

If a player is working with others, allocate each player a section of the island to comb through. Once they have finished checking their respective section, they should move on to another player's section in order to double-check their work.

Note that a villager is only marked as "found" once their chat bubble disappears. Using the "B" button to speed up chat saves valuable seconds.

Scavenger Hunt

This is a scavenger hunt game about finding certain types of furniture. The goal is to enter houses and pick up the furniture listed, then go back to Tortimer to deliver it.

Notes

  • It is also possible to gather an abundance of foreign fruits from the islands the tours take place on. Fruit gathered during the tours will remain in the inventory regardless of whether or not the tour is completed. Since the tours will always have fruit to gather, one could easily obtain an inventory full of fruit to sell once they return to their town, and turn a large profit.
  • Bugs and fish can be caught during tours that don't have it as a requirement, this means that one could catch some bugs and fish that are unavailable on the island and can't be caught in the town (if the requirements are not met). Some examples are the crawfish, the frog, and the piranha.
