Amazing tour guide and trip. We travelled to the north where we saw rock formations, sea of two colours. Then travels to Jiufen. I wish we had a bit more time to walk through.

Excellent tour, our tour guide Thomas was so informative and helpful when showing us the picturesque sites. Not only did he show us the high lights of Jiufen, he also filled us in with the history of Taiwan and stories related to sites along the drive.

Great tour to one of Taiwan's real tourist magnets. Our guides were bang-on time and very knowledgeable about the locale and its history. We got plenty of time to see this magnificent town and take in a lot of its cultural touchstones, even with the morning free to explore Taipei. Highly recommended

It was raining but the northeast coast was amazing with pounding waves and stark rock formations. Jiufen village was charming and full of exciting smells and sounds. Our tour guide Thomas was very gracious and offered to take our pictures along the rocky coastline. He guided us through the steady rain in and out of the alleys of Jiufen.

This tour made me truly fall in love with Taiwan - it was amazing to see the north shore and then experience the vibrant village of Jiufen, lots of great shopping for handmade goods, beautiful teas and lots of souvenirs. One hint: BRING LOTS OF WATER. It's very hot and you'll sweat lots!
