This tour was a helpful insight to Taipei. We were a little disappointed however with the lack of a hotel pickup due to location. Most of the sights we could have just seen for ourselves if we were staying in the location of the pickups offered.

Our guide, Bong (sp?) was a delight! Engaged, friendly, and very knowledgeable. He answered questions well, interacted with all the guests, and seemed to really enjoy his job.

We had plenty of time at each location - and thoroughly enjoyed our guide and his personal additions and comments.
