My wife and I recently did this day tour while in Taipei Keelung Harbour on a cruise. Alan was our guide for the day and he gave us an exceptionally good tour of three destinations of our choosing. We had chosen to go to Yehliu Geopark, Taipei 101 building and Jiufen Old Street during our allocated 8 hours and he worked out the best order to do these in to avoid crowds and bad traffic. We met him as planned at 7.30am in the Keelung harbour terminal building and absolutely enjoyed every moment of our day. He goes to these places often and was particularly fun to be with in Jiufen as he knows the shops that give very tasty samples of their wares and we had lunch together in an authentic and very reasonably priced restaurant full of locals. Alan's driving is safe, his car was spotless, his English is great and he is a very nice man. We saw so much in this day at a fraction of the price that other passengers from the cruise would have paid for less sightseeing. The fact that you can choose the places where you want to go makes this company superior to many others. We can absolutely guarantee a great day if you use this company, and particularly Alan, for your shore excursion while in the Taipei area.
Spent 8 hours with our wonderful guide Lawson during a cruise trip visit last week. We saw an incredible amount as we explored Taipei and the surrounding area. Not a second was wasted as we travelled around in his very nice car to so many places of historical, cultural, and environmental interest. Had a delicious snack lunch and yummy bubble tea in a friendly dumpling place. Lawson is a delightful young man, full of energy and enthusiasm and speaks excellent English. This was the best imaginable tour!
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this type of tour...
very convenient, hassle free, itinerary is customized to the preference of the clients!!!
And Frank, our driver and tour guide is courteous, friendly and accommodating to our requests!
This was a great experience and well worth the cost. The freedom to tour at your own pace and ability to choose where you want to go is a great feature. Alen Yen, our driver/guide was fantastic and having really good wifi in the car was a bonus we didn't expect. We could not rate this excursion highly enough
The guide was 15 minutes late for our meeting.
The guide, who barely understands and speaks English. Every word he looks at Google to understand what it is about.
It seems that he does not know the history and background of the places we have reached.
Since it is difficult to communicate in English, every question we asked he had to use Google to understand what it was about.
Also, in the car we toured, sitting for three adults in the back is uncomfortable.
We were very disappointed.
We expected a tour guid and got a good driver.
We do not recommend hiring him as an English tour guides.
Our private tour on March 14, 2018 was wonderful. Viator set us up with YOLO Taiwan International Travel Company Limited. Our guide, Lawson, is founder and co-owner of the company. Lawson is wonderful. He was professional and very knowledgeable about Taipei. Lawson exceeded all expectations.
Excellent tour. Exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Laison not sure this is the correct spelling was great. He managed our time well, spoke perfect English, was very knowledgeable and took us to a wonderful lunch of Taipei food. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great day in Taiwan. We arrived in Keelung aboard Celebrity Millennium. Our guide Lawson was waiting for us at the counter at 8am for our private shore excursion. It's a clean and air-conditioned sedan. Lawson did a great job at getting us to main sites and explaining their historical significance. Loved seeing the old and new of Taipei. Very receptive to our interests and what we wanted to see more or less of. Highly recommend tour. Lawson was great and very easy to understand.
We only stayed in Taiwan for about 10 hours, this private tour is totally amazing. We didn't have to queue for tour bus, the tour guide picked us at Keelung Port and took my wife and me to the downtown of Taipei, we visited several nice attractions and had the beef noodles and bubble tea for our lunch break. We love the Elephant Mountain Trail the most, after 20 mins walk then what we saw is the whole Taipei city with Taipei 101 at the center. btw, our guide Lawson is also fantastic and dropped us back to the harbor on time. The best shore excursions ever.
