This tour was totally worth it. The group does size is small, there were only five of us. So less time spent waiting for everybody to gather.

We definitely saw a lot in one day! Our guide Laura was very engaging. If you are short on time, definitely book this tour.

This tour was a great way to see many of the highlights in Taipei. It also was great because it gave you an idea of places to go back to see on your own. The tour guide JC was awesome. He not only gave us an overview of the places we visited but also the area we were in and things to do. He provided us with which line to take on the MRT if we wanted to go back and explore at a later date. I highly recommend this tour for anyone. Doesn't matter if you have just 1 day or 5 this is a tour you can't miss.

This was an awesome day tour!!!! I usually explore places on my own but from time to time I do tours. I decided with limited time in Taiwan to try out some tours. This city tour of Taipei was great. We saw the main highlights. We were able to spend time at each but not too much time. I can see how some people might feel rushed but really you are getting a taste of Taipei. I would recommend doing this tour on your first day in Taipei then explore on your own if you have other days. If not, you truly get a great feel for this city! TING was our guide and she was perhaps the best guide I have had. She was GREAT. Knowledge, fun, up beat, made you really enjoy being in Taipei. She was very much aware of the group and tailored our explorations. Her insights and comments were AWESOME. She even emails you a detailed list and map of things to do on your own in Taipei. TING made this journey FUN!!!!! You get to see everything from Taipei 101 to Yangmishan to the National Gallery to the Geothermal pools to the temples and more. If you come to Taipei...TAKE THIS TOUR! It is a great value and a fantastic journey!

I enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide, Claire, was informative and knowledgeable and cared about making sure we each had a great experience. She took the time to get to know each person individually and also to introduce people to each other. Water was provided throughout the trip which I also appreciated. We saw so much and I don't think you could see all this in one day on your own, which already makes this tour valuable, but it was even better with the personal attention and insight provided throughout. The tour exceeded my expectations and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get a sense of Taipei and then explore further after seeing the city on your own later.

Sidenote: A number of other people in the group had not noted that the voucher says the tour ends with us being dropped off at Shilin Night Market and weren't sure how to get back to their hotels. Claire did a wonderful job helping everyone find their way back to their hotels, but just an added note to people who go on this tour that this tour doesn't end with a drop off back at your hotel. I came prepared with a screenshot of my map's directions back via MRT which is super simple and inexpensive.

Our guide was incredible. This was the first tour I had taken and after taking several now, I wish I would have been more thankful at the time. The guide was super friendly and knowledgeable. She made sure we knew how to get home after the tour with a detailed map. Plenty of water on the tour van.

This is the best tour to take in the primary highlights of the city if you have a short time in the area or if you are staying longer and want a good initial overview. Highly recommend this to first time visitors and those that want a refresher. If you are lucky enough to get Billy as your guide then you are in for a treat. He was very informative, personable, and an overall great host. He was genuinely interested in his group and went the extra mile to make sure his guests were well taken care of. One of the best guides I have encountered and I and #39;ve toured all over the world. Ask for Billy and you won and #39;t be disappointed!

This tour was awesome! Our tour leader Kelly is what really made the trip, she was amazing! The tour was laid out really well, it is a really good way to get a taste of Taipei and Kelly was so excited and passionate the entire day. She provided us with so much interesting information about Taipei, Taiwan, the culture, the history, the people it was really cool. I would highly recommend this tour, and highly recommend requesting Kelly as your guide!
