The tour was good, the problem was with the other people on the tour. They were late coming back to the tour bus every time. At one point 15 minutes, the driver should have left. Especially when they kept my wife and I waiting. Jiufen was way to crowded, it was impossible to walk there, unless you like moving like a turtle skip it, its mostly shops
This was our first tour in Taipei and loved it! First, the driver picked us up on time at the hotel along with two other families. He took us to the Yehliu Geopark, the lanterns, and a few other places that i couldn't remember on top of my head. There were alot of people at Yehliu Geopark and was very hot. After we went over to buy some fruits and drinks at the local shops. My favorite part of this trip was the lanterns in Shifen town. Jiufen town was a shopping town. Great place to buy souvenirs and tea. Our driver was very nice and friendly. He took pictures for us and explained us things each places we at. Thank you. Highly recommend this tour.
Great experience at the Sky Lantern DIY, letting your dreams and prayers go up as the lanterns flew up in the Sky. Jiufen was great for shops and food to eat but it was tiring walking up and down so many steps. Yehliu Geopark is a spot not to be missed as it has the natural wonders of various shaped rocks Queen's head, the most famous of it all. The trips to two waterfalls was an added tour destination. however, our drive/guide does not speak English well so this trip could have been more informative if a well versed tourist driver is assigned for all those taking these trips. This was supposed to be part of the package.
It was indeed a wonderful day. Our guide was Martin was punctual and professional. He introduced us to local cuisine and customs. He always made sure that we were comfortable and is good driver. The lantern experience was amazing. We also enjoyed seeing tradition noodle house. It was truly a fantastic day.
