My wife and I have a great time. Michael, our tour guide was great. It was a small 'bus', with lots of room. The bus makes frequent enough stops for bathroom and snacks, and the food is generally not expensive.
It rained part of the tour, but it was expected, so we packed accordingly. The hotels are very nice with friendly staff, especially at Sun Moon Lake. There is quite a bit of driving on this tour, as these areas are 'remote'. The tour is 'short', but it gives you a taste of the mountain region of Taiwan.
Absolutely LOVED our trip. Our tour guide Mike and driver were the best. I was so looking forward to Alisha National Park and was not disappointed with the Cherry blossoms and the 1000 year old cypress trees. Driving and stopping in tiny towns was truly amazing and more people who go there for business should take more time away and explore Taiwan. Will recommend Mike to all our friends and thank you Viator for making this possible.
The tour guide was very proficient in English and knowledgeable of the sites visited. The hotel choices were very good!
This was an excellent tour! Great mix of temples, enjoying the beautiful scenery of the lake, trying different foods, and learning about the history of Taiwan. Tour guide was also great. Would definitely do it again.
Highly recommended tour and David the tour guide is very knowledgeable and friendly, he takes your preference into account. The hotels at both sun moon lake and chiayi are really good with delicious breakfast. All of the scenic spots are very beautiful
There was a cancellation on the 5 day tour of Taiwan so I upgraded.
The tour was absolutely wonderful. The guide was very informative and on some of the longer journeys we were shown very interesting DVDs about Taiwan.
The driver was very helpful.
The hotels were outstanding, a pity we couldn't spend more time in them!!
I loved it!
David and Billy Wong are great guides, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. These guys both found small local vendors where we could really experience the Taiwan charm and goodness. Include the Bullet Train from Kaohsiung to Taipei as an item in the package. The bullet train was amazing.
The tour guide Mr Edgar Hu has done a great job. He is knowledgeable, professional and walk the extra miles in providing good and satisfactory service. I would strongly recommend him to any tourist who are looking for quality tour in Taiwan.
The tour was really well organised, The accommodation was very comfortable and of a very high standard. The tour was great value for money, and made all the more enjoyable by our guide, Tony, who was well informed, helpful and great company!
This was a very enjoyable tour. The tour guide was very helpful and everyone in the tour had a great time. This is a must do tour to see outside Taipei.
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!
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!
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.
Sun moon lake is gorgeous! What a serene and romantic place. For Kaohsiung tour, just a suggestion- do not combine non-speaking English clients with English clients. Very uncomfortable not understanding what the tour guide and non-speaking English were talking about the whole tour.
Southern Taiwan is so interesting, quite different from the north. Great accommodation choice and guide was fantastic! Highly recommended!
We loved our 'trip south.' Three were from L.A.(Mandarin and English); two from Shanghai (Mandarin); and us (English). The guide made the whole trip enjoyable for all and created special experiences...visual and gourmet. The south is so different from the busy north...this was a great way to see it!
5 stars experience!
My wife and I had a enjoyable time during our recent trip. The guide was very professional and informative. This make the tour memorable although we had been to Taiwan a few times recently. The service and lodging was excellent. Hope to engage more Viator dealings in the future.
The bullet train was a fun way to make the trip to Sun Moon Lake. I had never actually been on one, and it is a different experience from a Maglev. I got to enjoy the scenery from the window seat. Sun Moon Lake is very pretty with clear emerald-green water. It is a long day, but was very fun. The temple's artistry is amazing as well.
The tour was fantastic. Was given business class train ride to Sun Moon Lake and has the whole boat to ourselves to cruise around then lake. Lunch at the local trip restaurant was delicious. Did not have enough time so miss out some of the tourist spots.. It would have been wonderful to end the trip with a business class train ride back to Taipei.
For the limited time frame, I enjoyed the trip a lot!
The hotel by the lake is absolutely beautiful!
