5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

With only a limited amount of time in Taipei, I decided to book a day tour and I'm glad I did. Not only did I visit some interesting places, I met some nice people, and had a fantastic tour guide. Ting was awesome! You can tell that she genuinely enjoys what she does and is more than happy to share her knowledge and love of Taiwan. I appreciated the directions beginning/end train station, line, exit , ticket price, and marked street route on how to get to back to my hotel from the last tour stop. This was done for each group member. After the tour, she sent an email with a list of things to do in Taipei, as well as a link to the many pictures she'd taken that day. I highly recommend this tour and Ting!

I don and #39;t usually believe in tours but, Ting and Billy have completely converted me. They were incredibly professional helpful (both offered to help out even after the tour, in case I have any questions), fun loving, and easy to talk to. I learned so much, and had fun doing so. Highly recommended!

Great way to see Taipei if you are pressed for time. I was in Taipei on a business trip and had only one day to see the highlights of the city. This tour covered all of the key sites in about 9 hours. The guide - Jett - was very friendly and very knowledgeable about Taiwan with great command of English. The group was a good size - just 6 people. The ride was very comfortable in a nicely equipped van. If you are the kind of person who likes to linger at a site, this tour may be too fast-paced for your taste, but if you want to quickly and efficiently get an appreciation for Taipei, you can't beat this.

We were able to go to all of the places in record time. Our tour guide, Kelly, and driver, Mr. Sam, were knowledgeable and very thoughtful of my condition (Injured ankle). This tour is highly recommended for those who prefer a personalized tour (8 people) and those who cannot walk long distances.

This was my first tour on my four day trip in Taiwan and I'm so glad I booked it. The company that its through is actually very wonderful. They are prompt. They are polite and educated. The van is clean. They know how to drive. The tour guide takes her time and lets you see everything without rushing you. There are a number of spots on the tour and the guide is educated on every single one. Throughout the tour you get a history lesson on Taipei and nice music to listen. She even ordered our lunch for us. It was a small tour 4 ppl. Great time.
