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.

Our guide Mr. Lee was extremely committed and well prepared for our previously expressed wishes. Perfect.
