What people are saying about Central Taiwan

This half day tour was the perfect length to visit a lot of the main sights in Taipei. I was amazed at how many spots we saw in such a short period and I learned a lot about Taiwan’s history. The timing was good because we got to see the changing of the guards in two of the locations. I felt that we spent enough time at each place though one could spend hours in the National museum. (The tour included entry to the National Museum as well, which makes it a good deal..) Note that The tour eliminated the visit to the handicraft place, which a few of the older reviews complained about. Highly recommended introduction to Taipei.

For our small group of six (three with mobility issues), it was pleasant and enjoyable half-day tour of Taipei. The points of interests presented gave a unique overview of Taipei’s history. The experience was made all the more special by our quite knowledgeable & helpful guide, Felix. His wry sense of humor was nice touch.

Jenny and Tony were our guides this morning, and they were both knowledgeable, and engaging. We thoroughly enjoyed their company. They could answer all our questions; it was clear they knew Taipei very well. We recommend them highly.

It was good and good places to see. Tour guide was very good as well and good explanation for all the info regarding the places.

Picked up on time, good guide. Very helpful with best photo spots and informative.
