What You Can Expect

Taipei in Motion: City Day Tour by Bike, Metro and Foot

Taipei in Motion: City Tour by Bike, Metro and Foot

Start your city tour of Taipei by meeting your guide at the Daan Park MRT station. Gather with your small group for a bicycle fitting before embarking on a 2.5-hour ride. Cycle past ponds and pavilions along a recreational pathway through the 64-acre (26-hectare) Daan Forest Park (aka Da'an Park), arriving at tranquil Qingtian Street for a guided tour. 

Admire Qingtian Geo 76, a Japanese-style heritage home, before your next bike stop in downtown Taipei: Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. If time allows, see the Changing of the Guards before a guided tour of this regal monument to the former president.

Drop off your bike around midday, then follow your guide on foot to Yongkang Street to fulfill your appetite from the many food stalls, restaurants and cafés (own expense). Your guide can recommend traditional Taiwanese specialties such as steam-fried baozi (dumplings), beef noodles and stewed minced pork.

After lunch, it’s a 15-minute ride by MRT to the Xiangshan Hiking Trail at Elephant Mountain. Climb the dozens of steep steps to the viewpoint for a panoramic vista over the city skyline, which is punctuated by the towering Taipei 101 skyscraper.

Then your guide accompanies you by public bus on a 30-minute ride to Songshan Cultural and Creative Park. Finish your full-day itinerary with a 1.5-hour guided tour of the old tobacco building, now a design exhibition space commonly referred to as the ‘Creative Hub of Taipei.’ Note: some areas are free of charge, while others are at your own expense.

Your guide can point you in the direction of your next destination from the nearby MRT station.

Surprised to find out that I was the only one who signed up on the tour the day I had it. Since I got Alan, the tour guide, all to myself, I had the chance to ask him every curiosity I had with the city and the country. Since we had extra time, we also rode the bus to our last destination. This is probably the best tour to experience the city like a local. Will highly recommend this to my friends.

It turned out to just be me and m very knowledgeable guide, Kelly. Although had there been more people I don't think it would have mattered as they keep group sizes small. Kelly changed the tour a little to suit me but also the weather as it had been reported it was due to get worse throughout the day. Kelly was very caring and had bought a bottle of water for me, and kept checking if I needed to drink or use the WC at various places we visited. I saw a lot of Taipei during the day and enjoyed doing it via various methods of transport. I would recommend this to anyone who visits Taipei, but unlike me do it at the start of your visit as you can get a sense of the city.

Tour was jam packed with lots of stuff to see and do. Our tour guide - Tai - knew lots of interesting things that he was more than happy to share with the group. A great way to see the city!
