Yang was an excellent guide with excellent English. Prompt, outgoing and very knowledgeable about Taipei and Taiwanese history. The spot he suggested for lunch was spot-on for what I wanted. A fine day.
An awesome tour!!! You get to see all of the city highlights in Taipei in a day. You move fast but you get to see everything you could imagine. My tour guide even took me to one of the overlooks outside the city where you get to see spectacular views of the mountains dropping off into the water. Great day! I would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide, Tai was fantastic. He catered and customize the tour to our specific interests which was picture perfect locations as we're photography buffs. He was also very knowledgeable about the city, he could explain to us about many aspects such as the fascinating history and exotic culture of this country. He even helped us fare through the rainy weather. He introduced to us many delicious local foods. He went above and beyond by obtaining for us a tour inside of the Presidential Building which was only open once a month so I discovered. It was an amazing holiday for us, from the fantasy town of Jiufen to the majestic National Palace Museum. Our expectations of this trip was exceeded as high as the Taipei 101.
Our guide/driver, Vincent, was a wonderful host and a wealth of knowledge on his city. We felt welcome and cared for the entire day and were able to customize our itinerary on the fly to adapt to weather conditions. This tour is a fantastic value.
This was a great experience. We were 7 travelers in our family with our 82-year old mother. The tour guide Kelly had a very upbeat personality, even calling our mother lola which is the Filipino word for grandmother. The tour van was very comfortable and just right for all of us. We told Kelly where we wanted to go and she organized our tour very well for us, starting with the farthest point Yangmingshan to see the geysers and then to Beitou thermal valley. We had beef noodle soup in Beitou. Kelly very graciously looked for some forks for my brother, his wife, and my mother who didn't know how to use chopsticks. We also covered a lot of the sights in our tour of Taipei city - Taipei 101, Chiang Kai Shek and Sun Yat Sen memorial halls, Office of the President. Our last stop was the Taipei handicraft promotion center. We had a really memorable tour, thanks to Kelly and the very gracious driver.
This was my first Viator tour and I couldn't be happier. The name of the local company is My Taiwan Tour and our guide's name was Young or it sounded like it. He was at our hotel 5 minutes earlier and spoke perfect English. He was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant and respectful. We did everything at our pace, adjusting the program as we went along depending on what we felt like.
Really had a lovely time and the whole day felt like a great value for money! Thank you, My Taiwan Tour and Young!
Great city tour with Claire, she provided excellent information about the different sites we visited and adapted the tour to areas of interest to my family. For example, we had already visited Taipei 101 so we were able to spend more time visiting an arts and crafts center.
David was an amazing tour guide. He was able to provide everything that we asked for. He is incredibly knowledgeable and was generous with his time. He was one of the best if not the best tour guide that I've ever dealt with. He customized our entire experience on the fly and went above and beyond for us.
Our tour was everything we could have asked for. We were only spending two days in Taiwan and wanted to see as much as possible. We told our tour guide, David, the main things we wanted to say and let him make recommendations from there. We went up to the coast, saw the Abandoned Gold Mine and Golden Waterfall. Then went out to Jiufen for the market and lunch at a beautiful tea house up in the mountains. From there, we did the sky lanterns in Shifen and saw the Shifen waterfall. Lastly, we went to the Northwest coast and saw the last of the views. He taught us all about the history of the different places he took us. Would absolutely recommend this tour and even more would recommend David as your tour guide!!
Was exactly what I was looking for. I was in Taipei for a layover and didn't have much time. Told my guide, Yang, exactly what my interests were and he drove me around the city. Was great to keep all my bags in the car. I also paid extra to have him take me to the airport. It was great not to worry about anything...from how to get from point A to point B and the language barrier.
Mr. Yang was amazing and gave us a thorough history of Taiwan. We went through the Lungshan Temple, Chiang Kai-Shek, lunch at a famous beef noodle place, the president and #39;s palace and place of work, and even outside the city of Taipei to Shifen, where we released our own lanterns. We had so much fun!
Yang was an excellent guide and was very mindful of my sore knee.....adjusting our itinerary accordingly. He is well educated and very articulate and provided a lot of insight into life in Taipei and Taiwan as well as the unique history of this island and it's relationship to China. We visited a number of the top sights including the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, National Palace Museum and Longshan Temple. Really enjoyed the day!
Our guide was a young lady named Amanda. She picked us up in a comfortable car and spent the entire day with us, giving us a fascinating overview of Taipei and of life in Taiwan. She included several stops in the city and took us for lunch to a neighborhood place that was definitely not a tourist trap so that was interesting. In the afternoon we drove out to the country and saw great landscapes, coastal roads and a miner's town deep in the mountains. She was knowledgeable, relaxed, pleasant and interesting and very generous with her time. Highly recommended and the best value for our money in any city we visited on this trip!

The best way for a personal experience with the sights of Taipei.
She was really nice and had the best disposition all the time. Thanks for all!!!
Well worth the money you pay for. We only had a short trip in Taipei and wanted to capture as much as we can. Base on travellers reviews, there were a lot of good sites to visit so we booked a Private Custom Tour to select the sites we wanted and go on our pace. We combined city landmarks and out-of-city sites. And though the weather was abit gloomy, our guide accommodated our request. Didn't really know what to expect as it was our first time booking with viator but was quite impress with this tour. You can't get that kind of local insight and capture that much landmarks going on your own. Our guide Amanda, was not only professional she was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Not only did we feel safe with her, you can feel the Taiwanese hospitality thru her. It was like travelling with a local friend. She also made great recommendations on other areas we should visit or things we should try whilst in Taipei. She went above and beyond our expectation to ensure we had a memorable trip.
This was a fantastic tour for our long layover. The guide was phenomenal and we enjoyed everything we went to go see. We paid extra for airport pick up which was totally worth it!! Made everything super convenient and easy for us!! I would highly recommend anyone do this tour, but especially if you have limited time to see things.
The tour was great!! Bill, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly!! We couldn and #39;t have asked for a better day!!
Our guide Steve was great. We had a list of things we wanted to see but due to the rain, we had to alter our plans. Steve made recommendations and adjustments and it still ended up being a great day.
We were satisfied with a friendly local guide and a excellent Lexus car.
Gordon has been friendly, helpful, professional and resourceful in bringing us to the places that we wanted to visit for the day. We visited the gold museum, walked through the gold mining tunnel, tried gold panning, tried out some of the local delicacies st Jiu Fen and managed to launch a sky lantern at Shifen. We even managed to have a look at the Ying Yang sea which was near the gold museum. If we are to visit Taiwan again, we will definitely engage their service again.
Excellent service. Our guide spoke very good English. We wanted to get out of the city and explore the Juifen Gold mining town area. A private car was a great way to do that. He took us where we wanted to go and suggested some other places that fitted into the day really well. We had a really great day.

This tour was secretly one of the best values on Viator as my friend and I were picked up in a luxury vehicle and got to decide our itinerary for a day trip in Taipei at a really great price. If I had the chance to go back and do things over I would have booked this on three different days and chose different activities for each day for a unique one-on-one experience. I would definitely recommend this to others!
