Terrific Taiwan Tours done right!
, Mar 2020
My adult daughter and I went on the 8 day Taiwan Excursion Tour and the Ultimate Taipei Sightseeing Tour. It was delightful. We had four different tour guides according to the areas of the Island we were in. Woody, David, Ms. Josephine and Michael were all very professional, accommodating, and friendly. Each one of them made sure that our needs were met. We highly recommend using Viator. We certainly will be using them again in the future.

Very nice tour that shows you all the different aspects of Taipei. We had an excellent guide who spoke perfect english.
This is Ultimate in a great way!
, Jan 2020
This was such a great tour, it definitely packs the key places in an ultimate day tour. Even, when I told my local colleagues about the tour they said that I saw all the must-see places, so I feel like I really got to learn about history and present day Taipei. The tour guide (Kylie) was awesome, very friendly, super knowledgeable and made the tour that much better. If you want to hit the highlights but only have a short amount of time, take this tour! They make it easy to see everything!

Ting was a great guide! She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The tour is a great way to see the city in one day, with stops at all the highlights. I would definitely recommend this tour to other people looking to explore the city, especially if you get Ting as a guide!
Seeing Taipei

Very fluent and helpful guide. Touring Taipei was amazing and joyful. Enjoyed visiting the various monuments and watching the change of guard. The small details about all the events that occurred during the various occupations from the Dutch, Japanese Chinese and Aboriginal people was very interesting as well. The highlight at the end of this awesome tour is the experience of the Shilin Market. Such a life full market, vibrant and full of energy. The food there was the best during my week stay and extremely affordable for the amount of food received.
Great way to see the city.

A great tour with only four in the group on the day. Phoebe our guide was fantastic! So helpful, knowledgeable and informative. She tailored the emphasis of the tour to suit the group, and stayed with us to negotiate the markets at the end of the day. We took in all the main sights of Taipei city.

, Sep 2018
We took this tour in late September and had a very good time. Our tour guide Yang was great, very helpful and happy to answer all of our questions, even about politics. :o We found the pace of the tour very good and we covered a lot in a relatively short period of time. We particularly liked the visits to the hot springs and the traditional Chinese house. The time at the National Palace Museum was a bit short around 80 minutes but we understand that we had lots to wedge into the nine hours. It was handy to have them let us off at the night market as well - there are two metro stations right there too, and so much to see and eat. It was just us and a couple Americans on the tour so it was in a van rather than a bus and we got a lot of attention from the tour guide. We would definitely recommend this tour.
