There were three of us guests on the tour. We were expected to pay for the guide's lunch. It wasn't expensive so I didn't make a fuss but I didn't like the attitude behind it. This spoiled the experience for me.
This trip was totally worth it, and Victoria and our driver went out of their way to make our trip memorable.
We got given lots of information, and got to take part in tea making, see tea fields, meet tea masters, and enjoy lots of tea, as well as have a really great time with our host, and driver. I highly recommend this trip to everyone.
Amazing views on a fantastic trip to the past and present of tea in Taipei. We were incredibly fortunate to be on the tour with our guide Yang, whose knowledge and personality were the perfect complement to the experience. It was a real pleasure to spend the day with him.
The weather was not ideal on the day of our tour, but it did not impact too much on the experience. Billy, our guide was very personable and easygoing and looked after us well. The highlights of the tour for me were the visits to the Tea Museum and Teahouse where we learnt so much about the history of tea and its culture. A highly recommended tour!
The tour was very enjoyable and the tour guide was knowledgeable. However, I would have appreciated more emphasis on the tea part of the tour, which only happened towards the end. It would have been nice to have the opportunity to actually taste some different types of tea. Perhaps stops in some tea shops where everyone can experience tea tasting could be added to the tour. That would bring the tour up to 5 stars in my opinion.
