It was a great trip. Mr. Vincent is very nice and attentive to our needs. Lunch food was tasty, the chef has achieved a number of medals. everything was perfect.
Oh yes. Our tour guide Claire was amazing! She was knowledgeable and she had such a great personality to make all 4 of us total girls had a great time together. She taught us so much and was funny and dedicated with all her customers. I have to say all of us loved the tour very much! Thank you!
Summer made this tour so much fun. She was very personable and made this tour enjoyable. You learn the whole tea making process from start to finish and you even get to practice a performing a tea ceremony. I definitely would recommend this tour especially to those who enjoy the different varieties of asian tea.
We had a great time learning about the whole tea making process and specialities of Taiwanese Oolong tea. Summer, our tour guide made it fun and enjoyable as she was very professional and personable. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially to those of us who enjoy drinking tea.
This trip was totally worth it, and Victoria and our driver went out of their way to make our trip memorable.
We got given lots of information, and got to take part in tea making, see tea fields, meet tea masters, and enjoy lots of tea, as well as have a really great time with our host, and driver. I highly recommend this trip to everyone.
Very friendly and informative tour.
Amazing views on a fantastic trip to the past and present of tea in Taipei. We were incredibly fortunate to be on the tour with our guide Yang, whose knowledge and personality were the perfect complement to the experience. It was a real pleasure to spend the day with him.
Taipei is an excellent city to explore, but if you're there for a week it's a great idea to get out of the city for a day or two to see Taiwan's very attractive countryside. I went on this tour to the tea plantations and also Taroko Gorge. This was an excellent and relaxing day. The cable car up to the plantation has some spectacular views do try to get one of the glass-bottomed cars if you're not afraid of heights, as the jungle below you is very lush and picturesque.
The tea museum was very interesting and its proprietors are very entertaining people with whom to spend an hour. You'll learn about and sample Taiwan's very different types of tea, from white through green to red, as well as tea's history in Taiwan, how it's produced and its importance to the economy. You can also buy some very nice tea as well as teapots and cups here...I wish I'd bought more. The white tea is fantastic.
Lunch in the old town was excellent, with several dishes including the famous local delicacy, deep fried stinky tofu. I ate most of that one. Recommended for the slightly adventurous gourmand.
The views of Thousand Island Lake so named, poetically, for its appearance on a cloudy day, rather than because it has many actual physical islands are magnificent. A truly spectacular and peaceful area.
Finally, we went for a formal tea ceremony back in town. Despite observing closely, when time came for me to reproduce it, I think I did rather poorly. The order in which things have to happen...not crossing the hands during the procedure...plenty to remember!
Gordon was an excellent and attentive host throughout the day.
I'd strongly recommend this tour to lovers of tea e.g. any fellow Brit and beautiful views you'll also come away with a deepened appreciation of Taiwanese culture.
