If you have limited time in Taiwan, then this is the tour for you. You will see the best of the country side beyond big cities of Taiwan. Sun Moon Lake is marvelous. Alishan National Park is the most scenic landscape of Taiwan. On the way, you will see indigenous people culture, tea plantation, and others. The tour is small enough for interaction between tour guide and participants. I will highly recommend this tour to other travelers.

Every trip must start and finish with safety. Therefore a big thank you to our Bus Driver!!!
What can I say for this trip. Just amazing. Our Tour Guide David was very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor and really friendly.
Yes, it is a tour with a lot of hours inside the Bus but the scenery and the surroundings during these 3 days were just unforgettable.
It is difficult to express with words what our eyes saw by visiting the Sun Moon Lake, the Alishan National Scenic Area, and all the magnificent Temples during our 3 day Tour.
The Hotels? The dinner buffet and the breakfast buffet at the Fleur de Chine and also the breakfast on the Nice Prince Hotel?
Everything was just perfect.
Yes, I fully recommend this Tour.

Thank you once more David for making us feel comfortable during these 3 days and learning so many things about Taiwan.

My wife and I have a great time. Michael, our tour guide was great. It was a small 'bus', with lots of room. The bus makes frequent enough stops for bathroom and snacks, and the food is generally not expensive.
It rained part of the tour, but it was expected, so we packed accordingly. The hotels are very nice with friendly staff, especially at Sun Moon Lake. There is quite a bit of driving on this tour, as these areas are 'remote'. The tour is 'short', but it gives you a taste of the mountain region of Taiwan.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Absolutely LOVED our trip. Our tour guide Mike and driver were the best. I was so looking forward to Alisha National Park and was not disappointed with the Cherry blossoms and the 1000 year old cypress trees. Driving and stopping in tiny towns was truly amazing and more people who go there for business should take more time away and explore Taiwan. Will recommend Mike to all our friends and thank you Viator for making this possible.

The three day tour to Sun Moon Lake, Puli, Lukang, and Alishan National Scenic Area was fantastic! We were lucky to be the only ones on the tour, so we were able to see even more than the scheduled stops on the itinerary. Our tour guide was flexible and when we asked he helped us buy tickets to take a ferry across Sun Moon Lake, even though that was not a scheduled activity. We also made additional stops at a tea store, plum wine store, and ceramic factory. The handmade paper factory was really interesting and we enjoyed the hands-on opportunity to print on the paper for unique souvenirs. Sun Moon Lake and Alishan National Scenic Area were breathtaking! We loved both of the hotels, especially the Fleur de Chine hotel at Sun Moon Lake where we enjoyed the Japanese style room with a balcony view of the lake, the delicious local foods prepared at the hotel restaurant, and the fun pools and hot springs. This tour was a lot of driving and the scenic mountaintop roads were sometimes frightening, but our trip to Taiwan would not have been complete without seeing these beautiful sites!
