    Our tour guide Grace was really friendly and nice! The tour group is small (only 7 people). Good for solo travelers to quickly check the old street pinxi and the shifen waterfall. Had fun with the lantern at pinxi!

    Very good and informative tour. Vincent Chang, our guide was the best. We had so much fun. Planning to visit Taiwan again and see other places.

    This is less than a half day tour and probably better done by train gets very busy with lanterns and nice waterfall but not much else. Poor communication for pick up time prior as it is a mini buss with many stops no pre-email.

    現地ガイドの日本語が聞き取りにくかった。 誠実な人だが。 ベトナム、フィリッピンからの観光客と混同 なので、英語と日本語の二重説明になった。

    暗くなってから、現地に到着するツアーを探 して参加しました。ランタンが想像していた より大きかったです。願い事別にランタンの 色があるようでしたが、ツアーだったので選 べませんでした。 ランタンが夜空に上がっていく時は感動しま した。 台北に来たら是非行ってみる価値ありだと思 います。 自力で行くのはちょっと難しいかもです。
