I thought we were going to get a chance to go to the top of Taipei 101. Three of us on the tour even wanted to buy skip the line passes. We were told we did not have enough time. So we did not have an opportunity to go to the observation point. And Din Tai Fung was nothing special. There are far superior places to go in Taipei.
We were picked up late which is no big deal but the man who was to be our guide should change his job. He barely said much and basically had us visit various places without giving much information or background. I wanted to learn about Taipei and Taiwan culture but simply pointing out fruit or massage parlors is not what a guide should do. He was a much older man and maybe that played a part in his listless tour. Total waste of money and that guide should retire. I would pass on this if I were you and just visit these places on your own. As for Taipei 101 or Din Tai Fung. The place was a zoo and we had to wait a good 30 minutes for a meal which I could have done on without being part of the tour. The food was okay but I would not dine there again. It's over rated.
Felix, our guide did a great job of explaining the history of the areas we visited. Our tour of the Huaxi Night Market was a lot of fun. Being a bit of a 'foodie' I would have liked to have had some time to sample the food. Felix, advised against it, fearing it might make us sick.
The Din Tai Fung dinner was excellent.
