A wonder panoply of Taiwan from cities to beautiful scenery with the Pacific all around. Superb hotels, an excellent tour guide, and excellent food. A different but great look at China.

Alan Chou was the best tour guide I’ve experienced. Spoke English and Chinese very fluently which made everything very easy. He gave us all the “inside tips” at every stop we made. His us of the big screen TV on the bus to educate us about the next stop, and Taiwan in general, made the time spent riding the bus go by fast. He even bought me and my wife a beer to celebrate her birthday. Great guy! Great trip! Great value!

Wow, the 5 Day tour with Daniel exceeded all my expectations! This was my first tour ever so I was a bit apprehensive beforehand I was looking over the reviews and worrying theres no way all the 5 star reviews could be real. But it is! This tour totally lives up to the lofty expectations set by all the reviews.

Daniel, our guide, was top-notch! He was knowledgeable, funny and had superb English. You could also sense that he really felt a strong sense of responsibility for us during the 5 days, which I really appreciated as a solo female traveler. For example, he triple checked everyone was on the bus before leaving, he helped with finding restaurants for us to eat at, and multiple times he asked how I was doing the answer was always, great. The entire tour was in English, and a large fraction were Americans. We also had Japanese, Indonesians, French and Australians. Theres a lot of reviews for Alan - but Daniel is SO SO SO good! Youd be super lucky to get him!

We also had a very diverse and fun group! I am a 27 year old female traveling solo, so I was expecting it to be me and retirees. That was not the case there were a handful of other younger travelers solo or with their families, so the group ended up being very social as well.

This tour must be subsidized by the Taiwan government to promote tourism because the quality of the guide, buses and hotels is much more than the cost of the tour. We stayed at the hotels which were all beautiful, clean and unique.

I would 100 recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see more of Taiwan than only Taipei. Its a great deal - it would cost you much more to do it on your own. You also will learn SO much from your guide, especially if you are lucky enough to get Daniel!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

This tour is very impressive and it covers most of what you want to see around the Taiwan. Our tour guide Alan Chou definitely makes it fun and enjoyable!

The only thing that's missing is the Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum. The Museum is closed every Tuesday and so you will not be able to enter the Museum during the Kaohsiung visit on this tour.

I definitely recommend this tour.

This was a brilliant way to see so much of Taiwan in just five days. Alan Chou was a great guide- very informative and entertaining. He was professional at all times and able to help people and answer questions. He always kept us informed of what was happening. Eason - the driver- was great. He was always smiling and drove us safely on sometimes, very windy roads. The history of Taiwan was fascinating. And the scenery - well, it was simply stunning. We had a good mix of passengers on our trip from families to retired. Some single travellers, some couples and also families if different sizes and nationalities. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Itinerary covers major attractions around the country. Excellent hotels, clean bus, good service all round. We have travelled quite a bit and many times on escorted tours. Tour guide Alan Chou was one of the best, helpful and very informative with pre prepared images of all the places we were visiting and hotel facilities so we know what to expect. Highly recommended.

Un circuit intéressant, bien organise, un guide au top,un groupe sympathique, bravo pour ces 5 jours de découverte de Taiwan. Notre guide Lenny est un grand professionnel avec des commentaires sur les sites visites mais aussi sur le pays, sa culture, son économie.
Les hôtels étaient excellents et toujours bien situes.

I have recommended this tour by Eric to so many people. The hotels were spectacular as were the sights. Eric used every spare moment to share his country through computer programs on music, history, background, and maps on the bus! He told us various specialties of the region and where to purchase them. This is one of the best most well run trips I have ever taken...kudos to Eric, the bus driver,, and the company!
