Our guide was excellent! Very informative and helpful. At the Lung Shan budhist temple, he helped us go through the ritual explaining each step and in fact, translated the Kuan Yin oracle.
I didn't feel rushed at all especialy while walking through the night market. I was even able to try the delicacies.
He was also very informative in Taipei 101.
Very enjoyable evening, our Guide and driver were the best, one suggestion maybe take one option out of tour it was pretty pack, keep you on the go. But otherwise we had a great time
Highly recommend this tour. Pickup at hotel on time and guide very interesting. Mongolian BBQ excellent, plenty of food. Taipei 101 the highlight of the evening. My wife and I were very satisfied.
Could be made longer. Note that ticket to top of Taipei 101, which is definitely worth it, is not included.
The tour guide is a professional and knows a lot about the history and culture. However because you cannot always choose the others that join you on the tour, they can make the trip less than pleasant.
The night tour was a good experience to see the evening skyline of Taipei, plus the night market experience. The weather though wasnt good so didnt have the chance to check the viewing deck of Taipei 101. The mongolian dinner was just ok, nothing too fabulous, but an interesting experience.
we found the tour very enjoyable and would be likely to recommend it to others
The tour guide was extremely friendly and built up a good rapport. Both Huaxi Night Market and Longshan temple were great stops, and Taipei 101 was pretty good too.
The Mongolian Dinner wasn't the experience we were expecting - a crowded buffet dinner mixing together a wide range of Asian foods, with the option of having meat and vegetables (similar to Shabu-Shabu, if you are familiar with it) cooked on a large metal sheet while you wait. If you catch them during a cleaning phase, this can take 15 minutes.
This was a very good tour, brief as it was. The Mongolian Grill food was very good, though not with as many options as we are used to in some places in the States. The sights from Taipei 101 were somewhat hazy because of the weather but even then you could still enjoy the lights for many, many miles. The tour of the night market was enlightening and gave a flavor for the local culture. Overall, I thought this was a good tour.

Doing what: Taipei Night Tour including Mongolian BBQ Dinner
Pickup was great. BBQ was really tasty - stick to that and not the precooked stuff. Good for them to take you to a place that you wouldn't know about as a visitor. Agree the night market stop was a little short, but I probably enjoyed the temple more anyway. It was cloudy at the top of 101 that night but still fun. Overall pretty good.
The city has great energy at night!
We were disappointed that we were unable to stop at the night market. It was a case of going in one end and coming out the other. We were told by the courier that if any trader stopped us we were to walk on. Otherwise trip was great
The tour started promptly with an on-time pickup from my hotel. The guide was enthusiastic and interesting, although her English level was low. The Mongolian BBQ dinner was delicious. I enjoyed the visit to Taipei 101 and the Lungshan Temple. I wish we could have spent more time at the night market; it was just a quick walk-through.
The 101 was the highlight. A must do when in Taiwan.
Very interesting tour. Exciting sights and a dinner at Mongolian barbecue. The other tourists with us paid less for the same tour through the hotel concierge.
