There were three of us guests on the tour. We were expected to pay for the guide's lunch. It wasn't expensive so I didn't make a fuss but I didn't like the attitude behind it. This spoiled the experience for me.

Summer made this tour so much fun. She was very personable and made this tour enjoyable. You learn the whole tea making process from start to finish and you even get to practice a performing a tea ceremony. I definitely would recommend this tour especially to those who enjoy the different varieties of asian tea.

This trip was totally worth it, and Victoria and our driver went out of their way to make our trip memorable.
We got given lots of information, and got to take part in tea making, see tea fields, meet tea masters, and enjoy lots of tea, as well as have a really great time with our host, and driver. I highly recommend this trip to everyone.

Amazing views on a fantastic trip to the past and present of tea in Taipei. We were incredibly fortunate to be on the tour with our guide Yang, whose knowledge and personality were the perfect complement to the experience. It was a real pleasure to spend the day with him.
