Our guide was great. She took us to the major sites and made sure that we saw everything that was listed on the tour. The Gorge is beautiful, would have even been better if it had been sunny. We really enjoyed the two Aboriginal meals. Highly suggest that people get out of Taipei and see another part of Taiwan.

We had a wonderful time, from when we were picked up to when we arrived in Hualian. Our tour guide Mr. James Kuo was knowledgeable, friendly and warm. He was a great driver who made us feel safe on hairpin turns and added new destinations to our itinerary as our schedule permitted, without feeling rushed. We loved learning about the geology and history of Shakadang trail, walking along beaches and enjoying delicious aboriginal food. He also was very considerate of dietary preferences, as we love seafood but other travelers may not. The Taipei team also had great coordination. Wonderful job to the Topology team!

We (6 active adults) were met at our rented apartment in Taipei by our guide, Clint Liang. He put us in to two taxis to get to the train station. We enjoyed seeing the countryside while riding on the comfortable train. Taroko Gorge is beautiful! We enjoyed the beach on the Pacific Ocean-small pebble beach. I have now waded on each side of the Pacific Ocean-Taiwan East Coast and US West Coast. Walking the trail up the river gave us a little exercise and a chance to try the local fermented small rice beverage-low alcohol content- the natives produce. No air pollution like Taipei.
We stayed in the Just Sleep Hotel in Huilen. It is very comfortable! Tea and coffee maker in the room and plenty of space. Very welcome after sharing a small apartment with 6 people. We all enjoyed having a bit of privacy and our own space. There was good variety at breakfast-Asian, European, and American breakfast options.
The lunches, native people specialties, were delicious and huge!
Our friend's birthday was the day after this trip. Clint surprised us with a birthday cake for him! We did not arrange it. We ate it in the hotel lobby and shared with other guests. So fun!

Being new to the night markets in Taiwan, we especially enjoyed having a knowledgable guide teach us about our options. We walked through the entire market as he explained various foods then split off to get our own. Clint helped those who wanted help. One of our members is vegetarian. She found good options. This night market had a large variety of healthy, not just fried options. My husband and I shared an oyster omelet-small oysters and egg placed on sautéed greens, then soup made from from hand selecting a variety of ingredients-greens, mushrooms, dumplings, seafood-placed in a basket, and then cooked by the soup maker. Lots of fresh juice stands. The juice made as you watch.
Clint is the best guide! He took photos for us and gave us the thumb drive to have!

RAS sur l'organisation.
RAS sur la ponctualité.
Nous avons passe 1/2 journée dans les gorges de Taroko et quelques heures sur Hualien....
Le repas aborigènes nétait pas a notre gout.
Logan s'est plie en 4 pour nous faire plaisir et est un garçon très sympathique
finalement nous avons apprécié Hualien.
