Taking railway from Taipei to Hualien or simply hire a cab?

I am heading to Hualien for a day trip from Taipei on Dec. My plan was actually buying an express railway train ticket (return) Taipei-Hualien-Taipei. And then hire a cab driver to bring me around Hualien and drop me at Hualien railway station end of the day.

Now I am thinking if I should just hire a cab driver from Taipei and drive me to Hualien and back to Taipei, in short, is hire him for a day.

I am not sure about the rates for hiring a cab driver for a day. I went to check for the Tze-qiang express return railway tickets is NT1584 for 2 person. On top of that I still need additional cost for hiring cab driver in Hualien.

Which one is actually more ideal and cost-saving? Of cause I know hiring cab to send me to and fro is more convenient and less hassle, but is there this kind of service?

Any recommendation of the cab driver who did this?

Thanks thanks!
