I enjoyed the tour, especially Yangming Park, the Hot Springs and bath. It was nice to have the relaxed time soaking all the aches and pains at the end of the tour!

Loved our tour guide Jacky Chan and we were the only people on the tour which was awesome as we both can speak fluent mandarin. Jacky was very informative and very funny. He showed us the different types of the cherry blossoms. He is very knowledgable and also he can speak fluent Japanese!!!!

This was a great tour! The guide, Jackie, was very informative and made for a great expereince. The volcanic landscapes and the tour climax at a traditional Hot Spring was very relaxing. A word of caution, we were taken to a traditional local hotspring ... dress code was mandatorily nude. A bit of a shock! But part of the cultural experience.

Highly recommended. The guide was great with the whole group. He was very knowledgable about the area. Remember that you need to ask questions if you don't know anything about Taiwan. He will point out the main places on the way and if you see something else just ask.

Great tour! Very helpful and accommodating. Our guide was great, a good mix of information and time to take in the different scenery. The easy pick-up and drop-off at hotels was especially convenient and helpful. One tip: wear clothes that you may not care about because the hot springs smell like sulfur and can make your clothes smell for days on end. Overall, it was a great tour and I would highly recommend it.

Wish we had a little more time to explore Yangmingshan, but the waterfall was beautiful and the path to it was incredible - the best part of this trip by far was the hot springs. Relaxing and soothing, and made my skin feel incredible - they provide towels so you don't need to bring your own I did, I wasn't sure and they don't explain there are cold and hot pools, so be aware if you're getting overheated there is a cold pool to plunge and reset your core temperature. Bring a water bottle, you'll sweat and want to rehydrate, but if you forget there's a small restaurant downstairs at the baths where you can grab a drink or in the park before you go to the baths. Be aware, if you're going in the pools you'll need to strip down and go naked. I don't think this is in the description of the tour, only in your confirmation email. Very friendly tour guide who was quite clear on timing, and had a few great tidbits about Taiwan. He delivered our tour in Mandarin, English and Japanese so kudos to him!

Good guide and the park is lovely, but not overwhelmingly so. A nice park close to the city. Nice waterfall in the park. If you don't want to sit in the hot public bath, you may not want to do this tour. You are only allowed into the pool area if you sit in the bath, not just to see the pool or watch people understandably. Not much to see if you decide to walk around that hot spring area on your own. If you like hot springs and bathing then it may be a good tour for you. Overall, a nice tour.

It was very nice and the tour guide and driver were lovely. I do wish though that we explored Yangmingshan National Park more. It was too short I feel.

Bonus of this trip is we get to see Cherry Blossom! Although the park is smaller than we expected. The other bonus was that I didn't expect the tour to include the entry and usage of the hot spring. It was a nice experience!

The National Park was lovely but as it was winter it would be more picturesque in spring. Particularly enjoyed the hot springs. This was a unique and enjoyable experience. The tour guide was good. The group was small so there was opportunity to ask questions.

The weather was bad and I was the only one of the tour. The guide (who had not done all that well on a previous tour) was much better this time and gave enough information and answered questions. The hot spring visit was fine.

We loved the hot spring and the resort and could easily have stayed longer. If we had more time we would have returned. The park is absolutely stunning even in bad weather. Recommended

A small park worth to see if you want to kill some time. There is nothing much to see there though.

This should be a recommended tour to see the beautiful of Yangmingshan mountain and enjoy the natural hot spring. However, I quite disappointed with the tour guide which is not really communicative with us. He only speaks the important words during the journey, never asked us to take pictures, and he was gone on the way back before the non English speaking driver dropped us at the hotel in the end of the tour. Moreover, we noticed that he also enjoyed the natural hot springs in his own private room when waiting for us having the hot springs.

The walk in the national park was a disappointment. As a Scandinavian I expect to be shown wildlife and shown specific trees, bushes and flowers from the region. I also like to be able to walk alone if I want to and not be shepherded like (sorry if I’m being rude) Chinese person. The bath in the hot springs was lovely. The old ladies that were there were helpful and nice even though no one spoke any English. Sign language and a lot of smiling get you a long way :-) The sales place (or should I say tea place) in the end was just boring even though the Taiwanese handcraft was really nice. More time in the park and hot springs and skip the sales pitch in the end would have given me a better experience.

This one is good for the transportation in getting to see the sites, but had I known where everything was and how to get there, I'd have been better off doing it myself, could spend more time and not get stuck with other crowds.

We were not satisfied with this tour, the original hotspring we were supposed to go was closed we had to go to an alternative one which was not up to standard. The cost for the tour was not value for money.

Though the tour was nice, I was disappointed not to see all the wonders of the park. we had a short walk at a garden near the summer house of Chang Kai-Shek, nothing special to see. Looking at pictures of the PARK there should be amazing flowers this time of the year.

However, our guide, Jacky Chan was very positive and nice and the visit at the hot springs and the Japanese Spa was relaxing and fun.

If you are looking to see the nature in the park, its better to take public transportation and tour the park by your self
