You’ll drive past fumaroles and crater lakes, stopping for photo ops of the thermal activity.

Learn from your knowledgeable guide about Yangmingshan’s rich volcanic terrain that supports grassy plains, blossoming cherry trees, and an array of butterflies and birdlife. A photo stop is made at a volcanic viewpoint where you may catch a glimpse of the conical-shaped Mt Qixing, Taipei’s tallest peak at 3,675 feet (1,120 meters) above sea level.
Afterward, continue the drive downhill to Beitou Hot Spring Park to experience one of the best hot spring baths in Taiwan. You’re treated to a relaxing soak in sulfurous waters of varying temperatures, said to relieve muscle pains, digestive and skin problems, and other ailments.

We were not satisfied with this tour, the original hotspring we were supposed to go was closed we had to go to an alternative one which was not up to standard. The cost for the tour was not value for money.

Wish we had a little more time to explore Yangmingshan, but the waterfall was beautiful and the path to it was incredible - the best part of this trip by far was the hot springs. Relaxing and soothing, and made my skin feel incredible - they provide towels so you don't need to bring your own I did, I wasn't sure and they don't explain there are cold and hot pools, so be aware if you're getting overheated there is a cold pool to plunge and reset your core temperature. Bring a water bottle, you'll sweat and want to rehydrate, but if you forget there's a small restaurant downstairs at the baths where you can grab a drink or in the park before you go to the baths. Be aware, if you're going in the pools you'll need to strip down and go naked. I don't think this is in the description of the tour, only in your confirmation email. Very friendly tour guide who was quite clear on timing, and had a few great tidbits about Taiwan. He delivered our tour in Mandarin, English and Japanese so kudos to him!

I enjoyed the tour, especially Yangming Park, the Hot Springs and bath. It was nice to have the relaxed time soaking all the aches and pains at the end of the tour!

Good guide and the park is lovely, but not overwhelmingly so. A nice park close to the city. Nice waterfall in the park. If you don't want to sit in the hot public bath, you may not want to do this tour. You are only allowed into the pool area if you sit in the bath, not just to see the pool or watch people understandably. Not much to see if you decide to walk around that hot spring area on your own. If you like hot springs and bathing then it may be a good tour for you. Overall, a nice tour.

It was very nice and the tour guide and driver were lovely. I do wish though that we explored Yangmingshan National Park more. It was too short I feel.

A small park worth to see if you want to kill some time. There is nothing much to see there though.

Though the tour was nice, I was disappointed not to see all the wonders of the park. we had a short walk at a garden near the summer house of Chang Kai-Shek, nothing special to see. Looking at pictures of the PARK there should be amazing flowers this time of the year.

However, our guide, Jacky Chan was very positive and nice and the visit at the hot springs and the Japanese Spa was relaxing and fun.

If you are looking to see the nature in the park, its better to take public transportation and tour the park by your self

Loved our tour guide Jacky Chan and we were the only people on the tour which was awesome as we both can speak fluent mandarin. Jacky was very informative and very funny. He showed us the different types of the cherry blossoms. He is very knowledgable and also he can speak fluent Japanese!!!!

This was a great tour! The guide, Jackie, was very informative and made for a great expereince. The volcanic landscapes and the tour climax at a traditional Hot Spring was very relaxing. A word of caution, we were taken to a traditional local hotspring ... dress code was mandatorily nude. A bit of a shock! But part of the cultural experience.
