Our guide, Bong (sp?) was a delight! Engaged, friendly, and very knowledgeable. He answered questions well, interacted with all the guests, and seemed to really enjoy his job.
We had plenty of time at each location - and thoroughly enjoyed our guide and his personal additions and comments.
We had a small group with a very knowledgable and bright tour guide who really knows Taipei..English speaking and was easy to understand and very anxious to engage and answer questions!
Our tour guide was friendly and informative. Although he could have introduced more about the history of Taipei during the trip. We nearly forgot to arrange our pick up and they still answered our phone call in the late evening.
It was a very convenient way to visit the must-see places in Taipei!
We really enjoyed the half-day tour of Taipei. Edison Travel Services was well-organised and responded quickly to any pre-travel queries. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly, and spoke good English. He was patient and accommodating throughout the tour. It's a lot to fit into a few hours, and the Grand Palace Museum isn't really done justice in such a short visit, but it is a great introduction to Taiwan, and a good overview of important points of interest for those with limited travel time.
Great half day tour to a perfect start of sight seeing of Taipei. We enjoyed the tour very much and the tour guide was very helpful.
Excellent tour guide who led us with skill and humor. Heartily recommend.
Fun experience. Guide very knowledgeable and humorous. Good way to be introduced to Taipei.
This tour is wonderful, good arrangement and perfect tourist guide with wide knowledge and good English.
Excellent way to kill 1/2 a day resourcefully. Our flight was at 11:45pm and we had to check out of the hotel room by 12noon. Our 1/2 city tour started at 1pm. The guide was very knowledgable on history of Taiwan. We particularly enjoyed the tour of the museum.
The tour was a small group on a van for half a day. The tour guide was knowledgeable and willing to show you things that interested you. The time at the National Museum was too short but would have been too short if the entire half day had been spent there. Now we know it is there and can go back at our leisure.
Very nice half day tour. the guide, Mr. Dan was very good, with a lot of sense of humor.
We enjoyed it very much.
A good short tour of Taipei . Very friendly and helpful guide if you don't know much about Taipei. The change of Guard and Museum very impressive. The guides also able to let us know at what time we would be picked up for other tours we had booked.
Super convenient and great way to see the best of Taipei. Tour was small with only 7 of us and we had our own driver and guide. Took about 4+ hours to complete and was an excellent option for us.
Goodness gracious!!!! That's my response to the question of how much we enjoyed this tour - kidding me!!!! Who wouldn't enjoy the majestic landscapes and mountainpeaks experienced on this tour. The ethereal waterfalls, look-out points, the greenery...Simply Amazing!!! So very well organized and you will see why it absolutely has to be. You cover much ground in this baby. I heavily, and I mean heavily suggest you leave the cute clothes behind and wear something comfortable and loose. More important than that - GOOD SHOES!!! Trust me, it's not for the fashionistas to display the latest couture...lol. It's not dirty at all or anything, but you're freaking in the mountains and walking along beautiful trails. You want comfort. And last but not least, I cannot speak highly enough about the guide you'll have, Josephine. She flat out rocks and this woman is the real deal. She's fun, witty, and truly cares that each and every person under her aegis is thoroughly enjoying themselves. Folks, take this tour - period. Love and Light ; )
The places to visit are very interesting, nice and educational. They were able to make the most out of our half day city tour. Our tour guide is knowledgeable and sensitive to our needs.
Perfect way to shake jet lag...a 3+ hour taste of the city highlights. The changing of the guard at the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall was an event that tops Buckingham Palace! We even enjoyed driving around the city as our tourmates were picked up. Gave us a chance to see city sites and not drive!
We've found city tours helpful to be oriented to any city where we travel. This time we took a Taiwan friend who learned a lot too. My personal highlight was the National Palace Museum. We went back and spent the whole next day! Think of all the treasures of the Chinese emperors in one place. WOW!
