    Josh was extremely cheerful, friendly and knowledgable. The private tour wasn’t very stringent and rigid and had some room for flexibility. High recommended!

    Our tour guide, Cola, was great! She made sure we just don’t go with the flow of the tour. She made sure we experience what the locals experience. Everything was authentic and genuine! The food choices were great! Cola also helped us with some of our possible concerns for the remainder of our stay in Taipei. Great job!
