  • A nice mix of activities but we still don't know the name of the temple we saw! Well run but would have enjoyed spending more time at the museum instead of the expensive handicraft market...

  • Well organised trip that takes in the important Taiwanese buildings and architecture including Shrines, and a Memorial Hall. The guide ensured the group saw changing of guards at 2 separate stops which was a treat. There was lots of free time at the national museum and the guide provided key information on various Dynasties.

    There was also a stop at a handicraft centre there was some lovely items here but the stop was a little long here with a free cup of tea and opportunity to buy and taste local goods

  • The few stops we made were so rushed we could hardly enjoy them or take in all of the history behind them. While we knew this was just an overview of the city, if we did not have to spend almost an hour picking up other passengers at hotels far from ours we could have spent more time at each site. Our guide was so busy helping one of the passengers with some problems they were having with money, phone calls, etc. he ignored the rest us while doing so. We have been on other Viatour tours and they have been wonderful 5 star experiences, but, this one and the Gorge trip did not meet up to your usual standards.

  • Great city

  • Our tour guide was so so, but it compensate the places we've been to.

  • It was an excellent way to see the most popular Taipei sights in just half a day. Our tour guide was excellent...he was funny and friendly.

  • I realize the tour was short, but I would have loved more time in the museum especially instead of the store we were brought to for shopping. I would have also appreciated less importance put on the changing of the guard ceremonies I saw 2. I didn't understand the significance, and had so little time that I felt rushed everywhere. Perhaps 1 less stop and just more time at the bigger places museum would have been more enjoyable.
    I did have the chance to eat the 'beef noodle soup' as suggested by my guide later at a restaurant, and it was quite delicious.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This was a great way to get to know Taipei and the different areas. The tour guide gave us great history and information. The van was very comfortable. The only thing I would change is the stop at the craft market. It was not a market but a little store that felt a kind of shady. There are plenty of night markets and other types of markets full of locals, great food and some decent shopping all around the city. Any one of these would be preferable. Other than that, I would recommend this tour for first-time visitors to Taipei.

  • It was a great tour and friendly guide, though at times things did feel a bit rushed, and we stayed at some places much longer than I felt was necessary such as the Handicraft Center. But overall, it was a worthwhile tour to get acquainted with the city.
