With a full 8-hr tour it could be a hit or a miss & I'm glad to have Josh Rice as my private guide. He's such a FUN guy to be around so, it was a bonus for the entire trip! He showed up on time, attentive with the details and resourceful (i.e. packed an extra umbrella, powerbank for my mobile, even brought his camera since he knows I'm into photography). There were some missed because apparently he hasn't done this tour before and he doesn't speaks Mandarin - whereas the places we visited were in rural areas so Mandarin speaking guide should be mandatory. But I really appreciated the effort he made by doing a thorough research and kept me well informed on the options l have. He also brought a local friend along for ease of communications. All in all it was a sucessfull day!
This is an amazing tour run by a fascinating woman June. She walks you around the temple and the narrow streets explaining all about the history and culture. It was so interesting to talk with her about lots of different matters and she even invited me to join her to meet her friends! I absolutely loved this tour and learned so much! Definitely recommend this tour to anyone! Tip: try the bitter tea! ;)
As a solo traveler, it was a very enjoyable experience to walk through a bit of Taipei’s cultural history. I was fortunate to have a one-to-one experience which allowed a more personable and pleasant experience. Walking through old alleys such as Herb Land and the nearby old market was interesting and insightful to the city’s growth.
Richard was our guide, speaks really good English and is super helpful. He made the arrangements for places I wanted to go to and has a great sense of direction. He also takes great pictures! I'd recommend him to my family and friends for when they visit Taipei.
My family enjoyed our tour w/ Jones. He took us to places we wanted to see. Covered a lot of area in a short amt of time, he even spent about an hour extra on us! Jones was friendly & very easy to talk to. We enjoyed a great lunch w/ him!
