Jiufen, probably already on your bucket list of must go places, is one of the most renowned cities among travelers to Taiwan. Once the most dominant gold mine city of Asia under Japanese colonization, she enjoyed prominence even well into the 1950s. For decades, Jiufen was celebrated for its luxurious life style, grandeur of its temples and theaters, and the size of its visitor crowds. Today, Jiufen is mostly appreciated for its local cuisine, the coastal views of North Taiwan, and its relation to popular movies such as Spirited Away and A City of Sadness. However, on this fascinating route, we take you to the unknown side of Jiufen away from the clustered tourist sites - Come with us on this tour to travel back in time and see the authentic Jiufen Town in its golden years!

We did the tour of Tainan with Michael and Cam, and really enjoyed the experience! Both guides were very well prepared, presenting visual material - photos, illustrations and graphs - that really helped us grasp the information and taking time to answer all of our questions fully and make sure that we were having a good time. The tour was very informative, and they fostered a friendly atmosphere in the group. Highly recommended way of discovering Tainan!

During the 3-hour tour, our guide, Tracy, gave not only an overview of Taiwanese/Kaohsiung culture, history, and politics but also narrated interesting stories about certain shops and buildings around the Kaohsiung harbor area. As a local from Kaohsiung, I'd say the tour suits tourists and locals alike. It's insightful and informational. I highly recommend it to all those who're coming to Kaohsiung! Do remember to wear a hat and apply sunscreen as it can get very hot around and during summer. 導覽員Tracy在三小時中簡介了臺灣/高雄文化、歷史、政治,以及關於高雄港周邊店家和建築的有趣故事。不管是外國朋友或是在地人都可以學習到許多新知,是來高雄很值得參加的導覽活動。

I've been to jiufen before, but my tour with Yujin was nothing like what I experienced from jiufen. I turned out to be the only one that signed up, so it became a private tour. Yujin is very wellspoken and knowledgeable about all of jiufen. The museum tour and information about the history of the places we visited were especially nice.
