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.

Jimmy was a great tour guide. He quickly adapted the agenda to fit my interests and shared lots of interesting information with me about taiwan including it’s people, history, culture and more.

Alan was so friendly and eager to share his knowledge of Taipei. We ended up booking a second day to go to Jiufen and Shifen. We would highly recommend him.

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.
