Although the weather was rainy, this was still a very enjoyable and interesting tour to go outside the city, and see some of the beautiful countryside outside of Taipei, were residents often go on weekends.

Ultimate Taipei Sightseeing Tour

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour really gives you a good, basic overview of the major attractions ot Taipei. We stopped for lunch at Taipei 101, but the trip to the top was not included on this tour. I went back and did this part on my own the next day, which gave me much more time to enjoy the view.

Taroko Gorge Full-Day Tour from Taipei

Taipei, Taiwan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour is a long day , but well worth it. First we took a flight, then a bus. The sights driving thru Taroko drive are amazing, and our knowledgable guide made such interesting commentary along the way. We had a very good lunch at a nice hotel before continuing our trip. The return to Taipei was by train, which was very relaxing after a busy day of seeing the sights.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was my first tour upon arriving in Taipei, and a fine introduction. The best part was my guide, Ching-Ling. This lady was very friendly and knowledgable. She was waiting for me with a sign which had my name on it. We had a wonderful afternoon, and I got to try some of the typical food and the bubble tea. She is a good representative of her city and country!

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Have done several similar tours in other cities, but this one stood out. They had a ghost type bus with spooky effects. The guide and driver dressed the part, and acted it along the stops. Everyone had a fun time, and ended up at a local pub before taking us back to the drop off place.

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Something I always do in every city I visit, and Dublin was no exception. Interesting commentary in English over the speakers, and other languages by ear buds. Buses run very frequently, even in off season. I liked it so much I bought another ticket for my last two days in Dublin, as I did not rent a car, and wanted to see as much as possible.

A nice full day trip to Mt. Fuji with an included boat trip on Lake Ashi. Unfortunately the weather did not let us see the top of the mountain, but it was still a very fun trip. We chose to return by bullet train, which was a very interesting and new experience. Worth the extra charge.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

this is something you should see while in Hong Kong. After reading previous reviews, I decided to take this day tour, and am glad I did. Our guide was excellent and informative. The day was good weather-wise, which made it even more enjoyable. The Buddah is 11 stories tall! The vegetarian lunch was also good, as I like all vegetables. Cable car ride is amazing, a long ride with beau;tiful views.

This was an informative tour to an important place I had never visited. I especialy liked the fact we got to visit both places - the main middle of the world monument and the more accurate one that was discovered after GPS came about. Also, there was some free time for shopping and looking around.
