I was lucky enough to be the only one on the tour and get my wonderful guide James to myself. He taught me so much about Taiwan, the history, culture and language. He is very funny and speaks perfect English. The park was beautiful and the guide took lots of great photos of me. Perfect tour!
This was a really interesting, and recommended tour however would be better on a full day. The guide was very informative and helpful and provided key details at both sites. The rock formations are fascinating and the scenic coast wonderful. Excellent value for money but could have spent much more time at Yehliu Park.
It was a short tour seeing a temple at a high spot in Keelung followed by Yehliu Park. The park is beautiful but we did not have much time to explore. Our guide did not speak English too well and it was a bit hard to understand for my American friend. Not worth just to see Keelung - might as well join another tour which lets you have more time at Yehliu Park.
