  • 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.

  • Good tour guide. Very helpful. We did a lot in 4 hours!

  • Good introduction to the city of Taipei.

  • This was an OK tour - nice to be taken to the sites in the city!

  • Although not horrible, I would not necessarily recommend this tour. The two gentleman who escorted you from site to site, although very nice, provided very little information about the sites we visited. They essentially dropped you off and told you when to be back to the minivan. You have very little time at each site, maybe 15-20 minutes. It was very rushed. Including the visit to the museum. You are also taken to a gift shop that is described as Handicraft Center for a fascinating look at age-old Taiwanese crafts. It is essentially a tourist trap filled with low quality items. The shop owners try to pressure you a bit to buy something. When I expressed an interest in their jade statuettes, a gentleman from Shanghai who was also on the tour, cautioned me that they were not real jade.

    The positive is you do get a glimpse of several key landmarks and you are driven by car, which saves time.

  • Good highlights to see, and the guide explained well and was very accommodating of us. The shop we stopped at was excellent with very good prices. If it hadn't been our first hour in Taiwan, we would have known that. It would be handy if the shop gave their information cards so we could find them again. Thanks for the tour!
