Amazing tour. Very lovely area. The hotel and city were a lot of fun. Nothing special about Lukang. They put you on a train to come back. Ours was delayed but they were waiting for us in Taipei. No problems. Well worth it and would definitely recommend it.

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.

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.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this 2 day tour. I expected a big bus but it was just the 2 of us. The guide was knowledgeable and very friendly and his English was good.

Interesting tour - good to see the centre of Taiwan too. I would have liked our tour to lead the sunrise walk from the hotel in the morning in English, instead of the complimentary Mandarin tour that the hotel did. The sunrise over the lake in the morning was the highlight of the tour - I can't believe it isn't on this itinerary!

Our guide James and driver Jason were excellent! James' knowledge of Chinese and European history was very impressive. Stopping at the Puli brewery for wine tasting was fun. The Tehua Village home of the Ito people was very educational and the beauty and craftsmanship of Wenwu temple was astonishing. Of course Sun Moon Lake was as beautiful as advertised, and the shore walk was gorgeous. Some great food along the way too! Highly recommended!
