  • Highlight of our trip to Taipei. Alex, our guide was excellent in guiding us on our cycling trip to rural Taipei that lots of tourists miss. We visit tea farms that were so peaceful and quiet. After our trip we have a great meal at a tea restaurant and also have tea at a tea farmer home. We end up looking at Crocodile Island that lots of my Taiwanese friends back in Canada do not even know about the location.

  • Definitely worth it! Highly recommend for anyone who is interested in experiencing another part of Taiwan. Sonny is awesome!!!! Best your guide and lead cyclist ever - he will even show you some tricks. : Don't forget some comfy pants/bike shorts.

  • Fantastic tour, Alex was an excellent tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed our cycling tour.
