Half Day Taipei Tour was Excellent!
Jan 2020
Connor was a great tour guide. We stopped at about 6 place in the few hours of our tour. The van was comfortable and we didn't feel rushed at all Connor knows his history and was great at explaining little details about each site we visited. I would offer the suggestion to the van driver to practice a little patience - he was very aggressive unnecessarily.

Tour by Vincent to Taipei Coast - Jiufen, Kee Lung, Golden Waterfall
Nov 2019 • Friends
Vincent was an incredible host and tour guide. Our group had members that spoke only Japanese, English and Mandarin and he was able to communicate in all three dialects! He was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited, and shared some very interesting stories that really helped us learn about the history of these cities and places in Taipei. He took the time to connect and speak with every single member of our group throughout the day to make it feel very personal and meaningful. Great experience and highly recommended!

Great tour and very informative

Our guide did a great job showing us around the highlights of Taipei and making sure we saw all the highlights in the museum. Easy to understand and very informative. Clean vehicle. My only regret is I thought my husband gave them a tip and he thought that I did :-(

Not what we expected
Aug 2019 • Couples
We were in the city for less a than 24hr layover and looking forward to making the most of our time. Tour guide was not great at managing a diverse group, he also kept disappearing for 10-20 minutes at a time. We’d ask questions and he’d say he would answer when larger group was together but never would. Because he was switching between three languages, we really didn’t learn much about the culture, history, and any of the areas we were driving through, only a few military history facts. The whole experience was disappointing. We felt like we could have taxied to each site and read a Wikipedia page in half the time it took us to drive around on the tour.

Dear Corey, We are very sorry that your experience did not match your expectations.

Thank you for your review, this will help us improve our services.

This tour is a good choice to quickly take in the sights, but bring along your own water, packed lunch, and/or snacks because the tour guide we had was downright rude about allowing us a moment to buy anything. We were fainting in the heat and starving. We passed a perfectly good noodle stand but were rushed into the bus. Once he said no to food stops, his jokes and pleasantries diminished. He began to not understand my English and react oddly. At one point he said, “You can write whatever you want on Trip Advisor. No problem!” Therefore, here I am writing, warning. Aside from this, it was a good tour with good air conditioning inside the comfortable bus.

HI mermaidsylvia, Please accept our sincere apologies for the poor service that you experienced. Our tour guide should have been more patient and pay more attention to the guests' requests, even within limited time. We will review this tour guide's performance to ensure this does not happen again. Thank you for your feedback. This helps us to improve our services.
