Our tour guide Kelly was great. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. She shared really good insights about Taiwan, its culture, its people and its history. I would highly recommend the tour.

The tour guide was very informative. Could eliminate one or two stops so more time can be spent at other stops e.g., temple.

I only have good words for this tour and our tour guide Gordon. he speaks English and was really knowledgeable about the places we visited.

I highly recommend this tour for solo travellers if you want to cover lots of places in Taipei just one day!

Sandra our tour guide was incredible! She was accommodating in meeting us since our hotel was outside of the tour radius, she is very knowledgeable, patient, and kind. This tour is worth the money because you see so many things in Taipei in one shot. It orients you well to the city so that you can go back and visit other sites. Thank you for a memorable time and a great experience!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

With only a limited amount of time in Taipei, I decided to book a day tour and I'm glad I did. Not only did I visit some interesting places, I met some nice people, and had a fantastic tour guide. Ting was awesome! You can tell that she genuinely enjoys what she does and is more than happy to share her knowledge and love of Taiwan. I appreciated the directions beginning/end train station, line, exit , ticket price, and marked street route on how to get to back to my hotel from the last tour stop. This was done for each group member. After the tour, she sent an email with a list of things to do in Taipei, as well as a link to the many pictures she'd taken that day. I highly recommend this tour and Ting!
