What people are saying about Taipei
This tour is an excellent introduction to Taiwan. It covers the highlights while you travel in comfort and stay in luxurious hotels. The trip is well planned and thought out to the smallest detail. Booking was easy, questions answered fully in a timely manner. Everything was confirmed right from the start. We even got a call the night before to remind us of our hotel pick up. Each day our awesome guide, Alan Chou, outlined the days activities with a visual slide show, providing us with information about the places, along with tips and suggestions, answering our questions, to make the most of our experience. Also appreciated that while traveling, we stopped every 1.5 for a toilet break. Alan is very knowledgeable, informative, professional and personable. Loved his stories and humour. Our driver was excellent, safe and considerate. The coach was comfortable, clean, great wifi. We always got a morning wakeup call at the hotel. Breakfast buffets were unbelievable. Taiwan is a beautiful.
Our guide and driver was Hicks and he is amazing. He is on time, very patient, takes awesome photos, drives well (really rad driving skills), has great energy and attitude, did his planning for all the places we wanted to visit. He facilitated our entire day to make sure it went smoothly and got us to all the places of interest before the sun set. A whole day of driving and hiking did not faze him and I think we were more tired than he was, somehow. Definitely will recommend him to my friends and family when they visit Taipei.
This was a wonderful tour - beyond our expectations. Our tour guide Alan Chou was extremely knowledgeable, and always willing to answer all our questions. It was very easy to understand and follow what he was showing us. The hotels were great with excellent breakfast options. The bus was very comfortable, wi-fi worked great, and the driver very skillful. The itinerary was scenic and Taroko Gorge a grand finale. 5 stars for Alan and this tour.
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.
