Great tour to discover Taiwan in a week! Despite the heavy-loaded program, there is time to enjoy each of the stops. From the religious and cultural art on the west coast to the explosion of nature on the east coast, without forgetting the culinary specialties all along, we got a glimpse of what Taiwan really is when you leave Taipei.
The guide was very good, and could find a good compromise accommodating the different profiles in the group.
The only point to mention is that the actual visit program on the website should be revised, as the tunnel of nine turns is closed for more than one year now (due to falling rocks) and is replaced by another nice trail nearby.
This tour was really perfect. Every meal was different and delicious, and really highlighted the excellent cuisine of Taiwan. The accommodations were very comfortable and pleasant. James was an excellent tour guide and is full of funny and interesting stories about Taiwan. The group was small and we got to know our fellow travelers pretty well, which added to the fun. Interestingly enough, the "featured" attraction of Sun Moon Lake was probably the least interesting part, but I think it has become a bit of a tourist spot. I would say that this tour is a great way to get to know Taiwan in a hurry.
The Best of Taiwan Tour gave the perfect general view of Taiwan and its nature. The travel guide Alan was excellent! All hotels were very good and beautiful. The tour was much more interesting what we thought beforehand.
The only reason this tour is a five star is because there are no higher stars. The tour guide, Alan Chow, was EXCEPTIONAL. The bus was extremely comfortable with an outstanding driver. All the hotels were five star hotels with great amenities. The only suggestion would be that anyone signing up for the tour should be warned that a considerable amount of walking, and climbing of stairs, is required each day of the tour. It seems that none of the tours are at ground level. However the walk was always worth the effort.
Our tour was fist class all the way. Our tour guide was the best that we could imagine. Alan YU Chou is an amazing young man, he was funny, informative and very knoledgeable. Alan took very good care of all of us on the tour. The itinerary was perfect. We learned a lot and saw a lot.
Great tour! We are so glad we booked this tour for our honeymoon! Our tour guide Alan Chou was the main reason why the tour was so great: he was knowledgeable, very accommodating to all of our needs, and had a great sense of humor that my wife and I still laugh about today. We were super lucky to have him as our tour guide because his command of the English language was fantastic he and was very thorough in his explanations. This tour is a great opportunity to see the entire island and isn't strenuous as some other tours as they only take you to the "biggest bang for your buck" spots. Our favorite part of the trip was the hot springs at Sun Moon Lake. So relaxing and absolutely delightful! We highly recommend this tour!!
This tour was excellent. We saw all the major attractions around the island. The trip through the gorge was outstanding. Five star hotels were better than expected. Tour guide was very accommodating and provided tons of information. Great experience all around.
very nice trip and well planed. will recommend to friends
Wonderful tour. Our guide Samson was knowledgeable, efficient, organised, and had a great sense of humour. The tour was an excellent way to see the best of Taiwan in five days. Hotels were all excellent (and such fabulous value considering the price of the tour). Highlights for me were Taroko Gorge and also the coastal scenery on the final leg of the trip. Also the street food was delicious.
A value-for-money enjoyable 4-day round Island tour. Good Hotels and Good Food (Breakfast and Lunch provided). Half the journey was via Shinkansen and train rides. This made the journey very pleasant and less tiring. However, may not be suitable for older folks especially to manage daily luggage and getting and out of train platforms. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this tour. Thanks Viator! =D
The choices of stops were great and the tour guide was very knowledgeable, personable and accommodating. The hotels were good. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
The itinerary was great. I have joined several group tours before and this was the best. The hotels were good except the one in Taichung (but according to the tour guide, that hotel was the best in the area). There were videos showing places we went and very informative. English speaking tour guide (he speaks Mandarin too )was friendly and acknowledgeable.
excellent tour, the accommodation are all the best five star hotels, the tour guide is very infomative, I am so gladed that I booked this tour.
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our 5-day best of Taiwan tour. Our tour guide, Eric, is very attentive and informative. The lodging accommodations were excellent. Eric's suggestions on where to have our meals were useful. We only wished that we have some more free time to explore each place.
