Kaohsiung Like a Local: Customized Guided Tour

1. Kaohsiung Like a Local: Customized Guided Tour

Explore the city with a friendly local who is passionate about his/her city and eager to share all the tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your trip. Meet where you're staying to get familiar with the neighbourhood, find out about the best places to eat and buy groceries, the easiest ways to get around, and the hidden gems you might have missed. By the end of the tour, you'll feel more comfortable in navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Once we receive your booking, the supplier get in touch with you to confirm all the details for the tour: meeting place and time, language and your contact information, and also ask you some questions to get to know you better. They will hand-pick the right local for you based on your interests. Each tour is completely customized so you can choose the meeting location, start time and length that you prefer (minimum: 2 hours).  During the walking tour you will have the option of taking public transportation or taxi to get around the city (at your expense). The local guides (Lokafyers) are locals who are passionate about their city and love to meet travellers and share what they love about their city.  They are not professional tour guides and do these tours occasionally, which provides an authentic and personal experience that is like having a friend show you around their home city.  Through conversations with your Lokafyer, you’ll learn what it’s like to live in Koahsiung, learn about cultural differences, local events and politics and also get to know each other on a personal level. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.

Good experience, BUT!

The guide, Jason was very friendly and had a good itinerary organised for us. The problem was the meeting point chosen. We thought Jason had selected it, but learned that this was not the case. We don't know who made the decision to meet at the cafe, but it was very "out of the way" and we had to work out how to get there. Because of this, we were late to meet Jason. The cafe owner was good enough to call Him and he came to meet us. The tour was an hour late and Jason extended our time which was good of him. To get to the meeting point, we used a shuttle bus, two train rides then a taxi. All this in unfamiliar surroundings. We hope other GYG clients do not experience the same trouble.,

Jason was awesome! I'm in Kaohsiung for business for 2 weeks from the U.S. and really wanted to learn more about the area and how to get around. Jason showed me the basics of taking the subway and renting a bike. I got to see some amazing views and understand more things about Taiwan. I highly recommend this tour! Jason is great to talk with and a lot of fun.

Jason did an excellent job.

He showed me place which I would never have seen without his profund local knowledge. Every time again.
