What people are saying about Taipei City

The food we tasted was amazing. The guide was unbelievably gracious and knowledgable. He not only had us taste some wonderful food, but he patiently answered all our questions, and explained many different aspects of their culture. My wife and I enjoyed the tour so much, that we would take it again the next time we are there.

Really enjoyable tour - as new residents of Taipei, it was great to try some dishes and places we would never have tried on our own. Jones was really friendly and knowledgeable.

Great. Food was awesome. Usually you need to wait more than 50 minutes to get in the restaurant. With this voucher, we waited about 25 minutes.

It took about 5 minutes. In addition, we were able to print the wrong page, but we could handle it on the mobile screen.

I've had the opportunity to know more about Taiwanese lifestyle. The food we eat was very well organized.
