5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2011

Very good tour, the tour guide Ming, was excellent.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2011

This tour was really good, we were a family of three who had the guide to ourselves. Ming told us more than we could find in a book about the history and culture of the people on the island and other relevant facts about the Chinese in general. I would recomend this to anyone who wants to see the real deal in a small village not the tourist hot spots that dont let you experience anothers way of life.
