    This tour gives a good overview of Taipei and some of the major sites - it is a short tour and so don't set your expectations too high for getting in everything there is to see in Taipei. However our guide was good and knowledgeable and gave a lot of helpful information. At the Museum we had about an hour and a half where after the guide showed a few of the highlights - we were free to explore the things that most interested us. While I am sure there are perhaps other tours which are much longer and more in-depth (as well as much more expensive) - this was a great introduction to Taipei and Taiwan.

    It is a wrong choice of tour for my family. First of all we could not be picked up at our hotel ( a sign that we should have noticed) The tour guide 's english was strongly accented that one could hardly understand what she is saying. In the museum everything was in a rush that you cannot appreciate what you are seeing. We felt that we should just have gone on our own.

    This tour is a must for first time visitors to Taipei. The only downside was the tour guide was not fluent in English so a lot of the history was lost in translation. The pick up was also late which is a first for us because in our other tours, the guide or bus will be at the pick up point earlier. We made sure to be at the meeting place 10 minutes early. As we were the first to be picked up, there was no excuse for the tardiness.

    Guide was knowledgable but not so friendly ... a huge contrast with the tour we took the next day which was brilliant

    We were literally on the run from the start of tour to the end of tour, 5 min here, 10 min there, etc. Tour guide was busy translating 2 languages back and forth. It was good coverage but a little hectic for everyone, including the guide. It would be better to extend 1-2 hours even with increased price so everyone can enjoy and comprehend what they’re seeing instead of just taking pictures and running to the next attraction.

    Totally recommend this tour if your time is short and you just want a overview of some of the main attractions in Taipei. The local tour operator will pick up and drop off at your hotel. The guide is very friendly and spoke English well, including Japanese.
    Throughly enjoyed.

    We had a small group of 7 people on this tour. Felix arrived 10 minutes early and greeted us in the lobby. His English was fantastic and he was full of information about everything. We were able to see the changing of the guards at both the Chang Shek Memorial and the Hall which was awesome. I can't believe we saw as much as we did in 4 hours!! I would highly recommend booking this tour and asking for Felix - he will not disappoint!

    Taipei is beautiful! We went to a lot of different places within our 4-5 hour window. Our guide, Eddie was very knowledgeable and friendly. Really enjoyed our tour.

    With just little time in Taipei, this was a perfect introduction to the various attractions. Very competent and friendly guide

    This tour gives a brief over-view of some of Taipei's most popular sites. It offers an easy way to get from point to point, especially if you have limited time in the city. I would have liked more in-depth cultural and historical information at each site, rather than the rather superficial input that we received. The stop at the Buddhist temple was rushed, with no information about the significance of this particular temple. The guide was clearly focused on getting us to the the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial for the changing of the guard, which was quite impressive. Personally, I felt that the stop at the arts and crafts store was not necessary, and I found the staff there to be a bit pushy. A huge plus of this tour is that they offer hotel pick-up and drop off at many hotels within a given radius. The pick-up was punctual, and the van was comfortable. The guide did the narrative in Japanese and English, and was very easy to understand.
