Jimmy Lin was an amazing and knowledgeable guide. He went above and beyond from start to finish! He was very informative about the historical facts of the different places that we visited and made sure we were comfortable during our tour. Each segment of the tour was enjoyable. Jimmy was very flexible to stop if we wanted to see something specific. My family and I had a great time! Jimmy even helped us to plan our next portion of the trip in Taiwan. Highly recommend!

We had a very nice tour courtesy of our guide, Tim. Even though it was rainy the entire day, Tim made sure sure we had a great time. He is also very knowledgeable about the places we went to particularly Yehliu where he was able to explain to us details about the geologic formations there. Tim was also fluent in English so conversation was not a problem at all. This tour is highly recommended.

Joseph was my tour guide and he was amazing! He was really helpful and knowledgeable with the history of the places. He also accommodated to our likes and made the tour around the things that we liked. Amazing tour and tour guide, letting us know what are the must eat and must try! Was able to book him again for the city tour! Would totally go for the tours again:)

Our tour guide, Jackie Chan was amazing! Incredibly friendly, great driving, and impressive knowledge of history and culture related to Taiwan. We had a great and smooth tour, and I couldn't recommend a tour with Jackie more!

Our driver, James Feng, is really nice and he made our experience memorable.
