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 three day tour to Sun Moon Lake, Puli, Lukang, and Alishan National Scenic Area was fantastic! We were lucky to be the only ones on the tour, so we were able to see even more than the scheduled stops on the itinerary. Our tour guide was flexible and when we asked he helped us buy tickets to take a ferry across Sun Moon Lake, even though that was not a scheduled activity. We also made additional stops at a tea store, plum wine store, and ceramic factory. The handmade paper factory was really interesting and we enjoyed the hands-on opportunity to print on the paper for unique souvenirs. Sun Moon Lake and Alishan National Scenic Area were breathtaking! We loved both of the hotels, especially the Fleur de Chine hotel at Sun Moon Lake where we enjoyed the Japanese style room with a balcony view of the lake, the delicious local foods prepared at the hotel restaurant, and the fun pools and hot springs. This tour was a lot of driving and the scenic mountaintop roads were sometimes frightening, but our trip to Taiwan would not have been complete without seeing these beautiful sites!
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.
Love the scenery and food! Five stars!
It was a very nice Experience in Taiwan! Thanks a lot.Very nice People arround and on the Tour.
Greetings from Germany!
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
We highly recommend this tour. Felix(Lao) our tour guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The hotel and breakfast were superb! We enjoyed the Sun Moon lake and Pagoda, the temples and most of all the street food at Lukang. We happened to be in Lukang on a holiday so there were many people and food vendors lining the streets.
