Excellent tour. Joe the guide was extremely patient, helpful, gentle and very knowledgable. His driver was also friendly and very helpful.The rest of the group on the bus were also very nice which helps.The tour was packed with just enough to see lots and get a feel for Taiwan.The hotels were very good quality.All in all perfect for us as it showed a blend of culture, history and modern Taiwan
I very much enjoyed this tour. My favourite stop in Central Taiwan was Lukang with its fabulous Chinese temples my favourites out of the many in Taiwan, streetfood better and cheaper here than anywhere else on the tour I found and interesting antiques. My favourite stop in Southern Taiwan was the natural gas fires coming out of the ground, as personally I have never seen anything like these anywhere else. I thought that all of the hotels were very good. I would have preferred to get the bullet train from Kaohsiung back to Taipei rather than the slow train and I would have been happy to pay a bit extra for that. I am glad that we did at least get the train back rather than drive along the scary raised highways. The guide for the Central Taiwan tour was excellent. The guide for the Southern Taiwan tour was very pleasant but I personally couldn't quite understand his accent. Both guides were very organised.
There was a cancellation on the 5 day tour of Taiwan so I upgraded.
The tour was absolutely wonderful. The guide was very informative and on some of the longer journeys we were shown very interesting DVDs about Taiwan.
The driver was very helpful.
The hotels were outstanding, a pity we couldn't spend more time in them!!
I loved it!
