Keelung Shore Excursion: Taipei City Sightseeing and Beef Noodle Soup Lunch

Meet your guide upon pickup from the Keelung port and relax during the 1-hour drive to Taipei by minibus, passing alongside Taiwan's largest seaport en route to the capital. On arrival, soak up the bustling city scene as your guide points out major landmarks along Taipei’s streets.

The National Palace Museum is the first stop on your shore excursion. Explore 8,000 years of Chinese history and culture during a 2-hour tour that includes an impressive collection of ancient Chinese paintings along with bronze, jade, ceramic and precious objects acquired by past emperors.

After your visit, gaze up at Taipei 101, the world’s second tallest skyscraper, which boasts 106 floors and a high-end shopping center. Enjoy lunch at a locally renowned beef noodle soup restaurant before continuing by minibus past the Presidential Building on your way to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.

Learn about the significance of the monument's design, a memorial to the former political and military leader. If time allows, watch the changing of the guard ceremony out front. Your guide points out the adjacent National Theater and Concert Hall, the country's leading performing arts center.

After plenty of photo ops, take a 1-hour tour of Longshan Temple, Taipei’s oldest temple. Admire the many deities enshrined here and discover architectural features such as the elaborately carved wooden doors, stone and bronze beams, dragon-like poles and cavorting figures on the rooftops.

Then complete your full-day shore excursion with a drive back to the Keelung port.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

A great tour! We saw in one day what the ship's itinerary would have taken two days to accomplish. The guide and driver both spoke English very clearly and were quite understandable. We were in a small group 8 people that greatly enhanced the experience. We were returned to the ship as scheduled, although we had booked this tour for the first day of an overnight stay of the ship.

The tour was superb. We were picked up on time from the dock and driven around the city. Our tour guide Jett was brilliant and took great care to ensure we understood every place that we visited. The meal was excellent. We arrived Back Safely on time. It was a very well organised tour. Thank you.

Excellent tour with many very interesting places to visit. The tour was made even better by a brilliant highly knowledgeable guide called Ting who spoke very good English. Lunch was lovely as it was cooked for us and there were many different dim sun dishes both savoury and sweet. I booked this tour before I arrived in Taiwan and excellent value.

Great guide. Great lunch. Great insight into the city. Some problems with pre booking, but faults were more with the supplier rather than Viator.
