It is a very interesting trip through various areas of Taipei. The guides know a lot and are very friendly. Highly recommended this tour. The icing on the cake is going to the Long Shen temple.

Really a great way to get to know the city. Our guide John was very friendly, knowledgable and shared interesting stories about the country, people and history.

Real fun way to see & learn about Taipei city. John (guide) is very well informed & super friendly. Tasty lunch too.

Very enjoyable tour through the city streets. Just hard to hear the guide at times over all the traffic noise.

Great tour! Learned a lot and saw a lot on the bikes
