Players after winning a tour

Tours are minigames in Animal Crossing: New Leaf that are accessible from Tortimer Island. Hosted by Tortimer, tours can be registered for by speaking to Leilani in the island's lobby and sitting in one of the chairs in the waiting area. Each tour has an objective that must be completed within a time limit. Completing the objective rewards the player with medals, the currency of Tortimer Island that can be used at the Souvenir Shop. Some tours task the player with doing something, such as catching bugs or popping balloons, as many times as possible within the time limit; the more the player does, the more medals they receive. Others have the player complete a task as fast as possible; the more time remaining when the objective is complete, the more medals received.

If there are any items in the player's pockets when going on a tour, they are automatically sold. Any tools or items needed to complete a tour appear in the player's pockets automatically when the tour starts, and additional tools can be rented from Lloid, who appears in the starting area in most tours. Any items the player picks up during a tour can be brought back to Tortimer Island afterward.

There are a total of 64 tours, and Leilani gives the player a list of 12 random ones to choose from each day. Additionally, some tours must be unlocked before they can appear on the list.
