Absolutely excellent comfortable bullet train tour!! The 5 star hotel in Kaohsiung was amazing! It's a good experience to the natural side of Taiwan outside busy Taipei. Tour guide Billy is very knowledgeable and friendly. Very well organized trip by Edison Tour Company from Taipei. When arriving to Taipei, they even arranged their staff to greet us right at the platform then courteously took us back to our hotel.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2013

I thought it was not quite worth what I had paid for. Sure, one would need a car to go around Kenting and Kaohsiung. But I could have done it by myself. I did not get to learn much about the places. The guide just ended up being my driver, dropping me off at places and meeting him again after. But the room in Hotel Chateau de Chine was quite good.
