You’ll take a step back in time to Jiufen and Pingxi — two charming, old-style villages. They’re just a stone’s throw away from Taipei, making them ideal destinations for a day trip.
I had a great time on this tour! We went to visit the old gold mine in Jinguashi and heard stories from an old miner. We went to Jiufen and had a grand time exploring the site of and #34;Sprited Away and #34;, then made our own lanterns in Pingxi. Ting was an awesome tour guide! I highly recommend this tour!
Fun day trip outside Taipei. My favorite was the sky lantern experience. We made our own lantern, wrote our wishes, and sent it up!
I like that the group is small, we didn't spend a lot of time waiting for people to regroup. Our guide spoke English well. In Jiufen, she showed us what to try and which are famous. The van is clean and comfortable. Water is provided and even WIFI!
I highly recommend this to everyone.
This tour was a lot of fun! Our guide picked us up and took us to Jiufen, giving us interesting information about Taipei's history and development throughout the drive there. We met with a really nice 82-year-old man who used to work in the gold mines and shared his personally experience with us. We then enjoyed seeing the golden waterfall, having a nice lunch and exploring Jiufen old street, checking out the Shifen waterfall, and then writing our wishes on lanterns and sending them off. Beautiful sights, our guides were informative, and it's always an added bonus to meet really great people from all over the world too. Thanks for a great day!
A really fun thing to do for Halloween! Shane was a very good leader. Really enjoyed the mine tour, too.
We had a fantastic day with our small group of 5 people on this tour. On the way to Jiufen we saw the 2 colour sea and a beautiful waterfall then walked through the famous Jiufen town and tasted some local food and had lunch with a beautiful view. Drove to another amazing waterfall and short walk then onto Pingxi for the lantern release which was a unique experience,especially when the train comes through! Train ride to Jingtong and a walk through the old quaint station shops then headed back to Taipei.We were lucky to have Laura as our tour guide who was so friendly and did a wonderful job.I Highly recommend this tour.
I did this tour last year and Aurora was fantastic. Very knowledgable and it was an interesting tour. Well worth it.
Great tour but very rainy. Would have been even nicer if the weather would have been better. Nobodies fault Kelly the tourguide
was funny and very entertaining. Great personality. Loved the places we visited, the waterfalls, Jiufen, Grandpa a former employee
of a Japanese mining company in Jiufen, then of course Pingsi were we made our own lantern and let it fly. Would do this tour again
and highly recommend it.
One of the huge highlights of my trip. If you splurge on a tour while in Taiwan, this one is worth it.
Nice small group that all spoke English. The lanterns were exciting to set off even during the day time. Jiufen was great and our guide led us to all the good cheap places to eat. Definitely worth the money as you have a air-conditioned van that will pick you up and drop you off. Tour started at a reasonable time and we returned just in time for dinner and night market activity.
Our guide Tina was so great. She was enthusiastic and I enjoyed everything she talked to us about when going to Pingxi and Jiufen. She was genuinely excited to show us around and was very helpful explaining and giving us recommendations on what to eat. I think she really made the tour.
Absolutely fabulous. Claire and Mark were the best! Was the best tour ever.
