A great tour with only four in the group on the day. Phoebe our guide was fantastic! So helpful, knowledgeable and informative. She tailored the emphasis of the tour to suit the group, and stayed with us to negotiate the markets at the end of the day. We took in all the main sights of Taipei city.

We took this tour in late September and had a very good time. Our tour guide Yang was great, very helpful and happy to answer all of our questions, even about politics. :o We found the pace of the tour very good and we covered a lot in a relatively short period of time. We particularly liked the visits to the hot springs and the traditional Chinese house. The time at the National Palace Museum was a bit short around 80 minutes but we understand that we had lots to wedge into the nine hours. It was handy to have them let us off at the night market as well - there are two metro stations right there too, and so much to see and eat. It was just us and a couple Americans on the tour so it was in a van rather than a bus and we got a lot of attention from the tour guide. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Maybe they could choose better places to visit. The tour guide Nicholas was knowledgeable, but sometimes I had problems to understand his pronounciation of certain words. We learned about the history of Taiwan and the places we visited. The problem for me was at the last tour stop, at the Palace museum. The guide didn't tell us that it's extremely cold inside. Otherwise I would've worn a sweater. So I was freezing in there...

Excellent opportunity to see all the coast of beautiful Taiwan. Tour guide was extremely good. The unsung hero was the driver. He did an outstanding job. Hotels were more than five star. The beauty of Taiwan exceeded expectations. The friendliness of the people made it a marvelous visit.
