Island Tours are the mini-games the player can go on to earn medals while on the island in the Animal Crossing series.

There are a wide number of different tours available to the player, and come in three different difficulties. At first, the player can only select the ★☆☆ difficulty tours and by completing it, they will then be able to start ★★☆ tours. Upon completion of which, the hard ★★★ tours are unlocked. However since the player will have access to all 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.

Balloon-Hunt

The player is automatically equipped with a slingshot. The aim of balloon popping is to shoot down as many balloons floating in the air as possible. On the lower screen of the Nintendo 3DS there will be a wind indicator which will tell the player which direction the balloons will be flying in, as well as the location of a balloon.

There are two types of balloons:

During multiplayer, the balloons on the map are multiplied by the number of players participating. Each player will be allocated a color, and can only pop balloons of their associated color.

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. The targeted furniture is listed in the checklist located in the inventory menu. The checklist is also shared among the players, checking off the furniture on all their checklist each time the correct furniture is delivered. The game is over if the time runs out or if all the listed furniture are found. Furniture cannot be taken out of this tour.

In multiplayer, each player is given a list of three items to find. A house can only be occupied by one player at a time. The game ends as soon as the last player reports back to Tortimer.
