Absolutely gorgeous spots! Our tour guide was very helpful and willing to share information about other places to sightsee during our stay in Taiwan. The lanterns were lovely and perhaps may have been nicer to end with closer to evening. The only negative is I wish we had more time to spend at each place! Especially the waterfall and Geo Park. It was a beautiful place!

The trip was Nice and our guide Ruby was great. However the trip felt a bit stressful, wasn’t much time for strolling by yourself except at Jiufen.

Convient meeting location by Ximen subway exit. Sophie was a great tour guide, vert informative, and took photos of us.

Great value for the trip. Pick up and drop off was on time. Tommy was funny!

Jackie Chan was so cool! Thanks for making it a wonderful memory for me.
