Mark, our guide, was wonderful! He answered our questions and brought a multitude of resources to our tour - using his iPad, a map of Taiwan, and many other things to help explain the unique history of Danshui.

This tour is a bit off the beaten path but well worth it. Danshui -- or Tamshui as it is written most anywhere, including on the metro -- is a really nice are of Taipei with a lot of beautiful scenery, fascinating history and delicious food. Our tour guide Mark was very friendly, informed, and took really good care of us for the day. The "snack" that's included in the trip (described on this page as fish ball soup I believe) was very good but very filling, so make sure to save some room for it. Otherwise make sure to be wearing comfortable walking shoes, have your camera at the ready and be prepared to sample a lot of delicious treats! Looking back I wish that we had stayed in the area for the night so don't hesitate to tell Mark (or whoever your tour guide is) that you want to part ways in Danshui.

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!

Nancy, the tour guide, was a total delight. She showed us many places that tourists don't usually see and knew a lot about the history of the city.

I liked the idea of having the guide so we knew a little more of the history and information about the nearby sights, but I also think for many people this is something that is very easy to do on your own. You may not get all the same info, but you can definitely walk around and see things on your own. Due to the weather we ended up having tea and afternoon snacks to stay dry, which was a great plan B selected by our guide, but that made it so we were too late getting to the fort to go inside, but that was uncontrollable due to the weather. Getting there is easy, but one thing that isn't clear is that the tour listed uses the spelling of Danshui while the MRT only uses Tamsui. They are very similar so most people probably assume they are the same, but it is easy to get confused if you are looking at it in one place and then looking at it as you are actually traveling there. The MRT ride was easy otherwise. If you are interested in the night market, make sure to let the guide know so that there is enough time dedicated to this. Our guide was helpful in finding certain foods we wanted to try and then offered us some suggestions for dinner.

Overall the tour was good. We were able to try some authentic food which was good, and it was included. Some of the tour sights were very interesting. We didn't see much of the night market, also we thought that we would see the bridge that is in the picture, but it is actually quite a bit further than walking distance, that was a little disappointing and slightly misleading. The tour was a number of art galleries, so if you enjoy more history and art then it is a good tour for you.
