We were promptly picked up at our hotel in a 7 passenger van and Jane Chao was our guide/escort and did a lovely job. Because it was Saturday, we were able to move from sight to sight. Overall it was a great way to see Taipei and we even got a lesson on how to use the metro. This was most helpful in getting us back to our hotel with minimal cost. Our trip to the National Palace Museum was a highlight, however it is so busy with other tour groups that a guide it the only way one could see it the first time. Next time we will go in the later afternoon on a day when it is open into the evening. The tour gave us a taste in seeing Taipei 101, the 4th tallest building in the world and we came back on our own the next day when the lines were less and the skies clearer and enjoyed looking out over the city. We had been to other night markets, and even if you don't eat their, there are some great photo opportunities. This is a full day's tour extending almost 12 hours if you don't bail out early and certainly a great overview of a wonderful city..
An fantastic tour with great driver and minibus, and Steve as an excellent, knowledgeable guide. A really coordinated day, including the main locations you'd want to 'tick off the list' but also mixed in with a few more local experiences. Thoroughly recommended.
Kelly was amazing and so helpful. We have three little kids and everyone worked together to make sure we all enjoyed the tour. We saw and learned so much.
Great tour with Steeve
Feeled like a VIP, as I am alone with him in a beautiful car and he took care of me evey moment
I learned a lot about Taipei because he is very educated and knowledgeable .had a very good time, can only recommend this tour
An amazing, comprehensive tour - a fabulous introduction to this wonderful city, with the most accommodating, friendly and considerate host we could have asked for! Although he was dealt the difficult hand of some very curious and slow-moving sightseers, he managed us all very well and went far out of his way to ensure we were all happy and comfortable with the day's events. Very happy, thank you!
Only 3 participants, nice and proud guide who goes beyond the usual facts and figures and makes you feel what it takes to be Taiwanese. Relaxed and flexible. Make sure you access your email one day before to check changes in starting time.
Perfect full day tour with an enthusiastic guide Steve. Despite a late start (9 am) I came home pretty tired, having done / seen so much. They usually drop you off at the night market but we were all "done" and preferred going back to our hotels. Good choice for lunch with a beautiful dumpling meal (own expense but worth the TWD 350).
What a fabulous tour with many thanks to our guide, Steve Lin!!!! He was truly enjoyable and made sure that we saw all of the historical and scenic sites in Taipei. He is a bundle of energy with a wealth of knowledge! Since it was just my daughter and I, he was flexible and allowed us to move at our own pace. He was an eager photographer so we have lots pictures. I highly recommend this tour! Thanks Steve!!!
Thanks to guide tour Steve! He made us feel at home! All the places we visited were given good historical background as well as a very polite and joyful attitude! The tour is marvelous to get a good sensation and taste of Taiwan. Thanks a lot to My Taiwan Tour and Steve. Hope to be back soon. Francesca and Jorge.
I really enjoyed my tour of Taipei with Steve Lin. Steve was an excellent guide and showed great interest in all members of my group. This tour is a good way to see a lot of different places in and around Taipei in one day and I would highly recommend it.
Amazing tour! Knowledgeable, friendly, Steve Lin was the perfect tour guide. My friend and I were really fortunate that we were the only clients who booked the tour, allowing for a personalised tour. Steve allowed us as much time as we wanted at each stop and always offered to take our pictures. Loved the experience. Learned a lot. Strongly recommend the tour. Steve Lin is so much fun! You will most definitely enjoy your time.
This is an exciting tour where you get to see many great attractions in one day. The Taipei 101 tower is an imposing, but beautiful building. Underneath the tower is a Michelin star restaraunt called Din Tai Fung. We had the opportunity to eat here during our tour and the food is fantastic. It is famous for its xiaolongbao (soup dumplings), but don't forget to try the beef noodle soup. Both are delish.
The best part about this trip is the tour guide, Steve Lin from the tour company. He is a fabulous host. Not only is he knowledgeable about the city, but more importantly, has the personality and warmth to make others around him feel happy and welcomed.
If you get a chance, please specifically ask for Steve Lin when you sign up for this tour.
GREAT!!! Loved our tour guide Steve. You'll see a lot of Taipei and the surrounding areas.
I really enjoyed this tour. I was impressed and pleased with how much of Taipei our guide was able to fit into one day. This is worth doing as it was well organized, I was tired of all the traffic in the city but liked everything that was under the control of the guide/tour company.
Full, day long trip, in small air conditioned SUV....friendly, well informed guide who chatted away, took pictures of us etc....hotel pick up and drop off a plus...very difficult and time consuming to do all of this independently so if short on time, this is the tour to do...Taipei is great city...it is rather expensive tho and we didn't have an option to ascent Taipei 101...just pictures from outside....amazes me that lunch isn't included...food is so cheap here and the tour so expensive, as good will gesture, should gave been included, like so many other tours....all in all worth doing
