Our guide and driver was Hicks and he is amazing. He is on time, very patient, takes awesome photos, drives well (really rad driving skills), has great energy and attitude, did his planning for all the places we wanted to visit. He facilitated our entire day to make sure it went smoothly and got us to all the places of interest before the sun set. A whole day of driving and hiking did not faze him and I think we were more tired than he was, somehow. Definitely will recommend him to my friends and family when they visit Taipei.

The food we tasted was amazing. The guide was unbelievably gracious and knowledgable. He not only had us taste some wonderful food, but he patiently answered all our questions, and explained many different aspects of their culture. My wife and I enjoyed the tour so much, that we would take it again the next time we are there.

Richard was our guide, speaks really good English and is super helpful. He made the arrangements for places I wanted to go to and has a great sense of direction. He also takes great pictures! I'd recommend him to my family and friends for when they visit Taipei.

Jack was a great tour guide. He took what I was interested in seeing and customized a full and fantastic day outside of and within the city.

Our guide Mr. Lee was extremely committed and well prepared for our previously expressed wishes. Perfect.
