Northern Coast Half-Day Tour including Yehliu Park from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
This was our last tour of the trip, so maybe because of our previous excellent experiences, we expected more. The visit to Keelung was almost a waste of time. The view of the town from the top of the mountain was okay, and the large Buddah statue was interesting, but there was nothing to get excited about. I would suggest another stop. The visit to Yehliu Park is what this tour is all about. The rock formations are incredible. However, it seems like all of Taiwan is there too. Very crowded. Suggest a hike up the small hill in the park and get a bird's eye view. Less crowded when you get away from the main attractions. On our way back to the hotel we saw some hang gliders. Would be great to offer hang-gliding as a tour package. Outside of the Keelung visit and the crowds, this was a great tour.

Taroko Gorge Full-Day Tour from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
5+++ stars! Wow, amazing? If you have a full day in Taiwan, you must do this trip. Tour guide in Taipei picks you up and helps you get checked in for the short morning flight. Another tour guide, Josephine, is there at the destination to pick you up. Very easy. Professionally executed. Josephine was awesome! She knows the ins and outs of this place. She says its her backyard and you would believe it. We were there two days after a typhoon hit, so some of the roads and trails were still closed. But there were many more waterfalls to see because of all of the rain water. Josephine was able to find some alternate routes to take to get us up close. Lunch was very good and a unique experience. The marble factory was interesting, and the gift shop had a lot of selection. The train ride back was a little long, but gave us a good opportunity for a well needed nap. Bring your camera, wide angle lense, and lots of memory. A must. Unlike anything else.

Taipei Night Tour including Mongolian BBQ Dinner

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Professional. Good service. But you could do better on your own. No real need for a tour. The Mongolian BBQ was okay, but we've had better. The night market was not that great, a better market is on the Chiufen village tour. Tower 101 is the highlight, but you don't need a tour to take you there. A taxi from your hotel would be a better option. There is more to do in the tower than the tour allows for time. Nothing wrong with the tour service, just could do this better on our own.

Chiufen Village (Jiufen) and Northeast Coast Half-Day Tour from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Our first tour in Taiwan. Professional tour guide. The tour is well organized. If you have multiple tours with the same company, the tour guide will let you know when your next tour starts and when you will be picked up. The rock formations along the coast were incredible and unique. Not a big tourist area, so very few people were there. Nice views. The ride up to Chiufen village was gorgeous and we thought the market was better than the night markets of Taipei. Regardless of buying anything, it was interesting enough walking around the area. A must 1/2 day tour if you are in Taipei.
