A brilliant lay over in Taiwan

We arrived from the USA the night before our tour, very late. We only had 3.5 hours of sleep. Our friends from Taiwan booked this tour for us and to be honest, we didn't want to go because we knew we would be tired. The tour kept us entertained and awake. We met wonderful people who were on the same tour with us from Peru and Australia and became fast friends and connected on Facebook. We loved every stop and we feel like we saw so much. Our driver's English wasn't so good but our tour guy was great! Well worth the money they spent on us!!!

Good Job MyTaiwan Tour and Iris

Many sights to get through, our guide Iris was energetic, insightful, informative, helpful, patient. Although tiring by the end to get in and out to visit sights, it was enjoyable. Highly recommended to see the sights with MyTaiwan tour's professional service. Due to traffic we had to whisk through the National Palace Museum just before closing time, but Iris tried her best and guided us through the more important artifacts which was super.

The tour exceeded my expectations

I enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide, Claire, was informative and knowledgeable and cared about making sure we each had a great experience. She took the time to get to know each person individually and also to introduce people to each other. Water was provided throughout the trip which I also appreciated. We saw so much and I don't think you could see all this in one day on your own, which already makes this tour valuable, but it was even better with the personal attention and insight provided throughout. The tour exceeded my expectations and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get a sense of Taipei and then explore further after seeing the city on your own later. Sidenote: A number of other people in the group had not noted that the voucher says the tour ends with us being dropped off at Shilin Night Market and weren't sure how to get back to their hotels. Claire did a wonderful job helping everyone find their way back to their hotels, but just an added note to people who go on this tour that this tour doesn't end with a drop off back at your hotel. I came prepared with a screenshot of my map's directions back via MRT which is super simple and inexpensive.

Incredible tour guide Kelly

Our guide was incredible. This was the first tour I had taken and after taking several now, I wish I would have been more thankful at the time. The guide was super friendly and knowledgeable. She made sure we knew how to get home after the tour with a detailed map. Plenty of water on the tour van.

You are the best!

This is the best tour to take in the primary highlights of the city if you have a short time in the area or if you are staying longer and want a good initial overview. Highly recommend this to first time visitors and those that want a refresher. If you are lucky enough to get Billy as your guide then you are in for a treat. He was very informative, personable, and an overall great host. He was genuinely interested in his group and went the extra mile to make sure his guests were well taken care of. One of the best guides I have encountered and I and I've toured all over the world. Ask for Billy and you won and you won't be disappointed!

This tour was awesome! Our tour leader Kelly is what really made the trip, she was amazing! The tour was laid out really well, it is a really good way to get a taste of Taipei and Kelly was so excited and passionate the entire day. She provided us with so much interesting information about Taipei, Taiwan, the culture, the history, the people it was really cool. I would highly recommend this tour, and highly recommend requesting Kelly as your guide!

The heart of Asia

Me and My family we are total 6pax taken this tour last Thursday, Nov 10, 2016. Our guide on that day was Cola. She's kind and helpful spoken quite fluent English with American accent. Overall the itinerary was very helpful to help us first time visitor to Taipei understand about the city with its landmark in just one day. I truly recommended this tour for you who has just short period of time to know Taipei an amazing metropolitan city in the heart of Asia.

5 star tour and company

I speak both english and mandarin. Has a rough background knowledge of taiwanese history. The tour guide is knowledgeable and able to fill me in gaps of my knowledge. When you are short of time, this is a quick browse of a few touristy spots in Taipei.

Memorable time and a great experience!

Sandra our tour guide was incredible! She was accommodating in meeting us since our hotel was outside of the tour radius, she is very knowledgeable, patient, and kind. This tour is worth the money because you see so many things in Taipei in one shot. It orients you well to the city so that you can go back and visit other sites. Thank you for a memorable time and a great experience!

Tour guide Kelly was incredible and provided the best tour in which I have ever participated. She cares so deeply for each person on her tours, and constantly strove to ensure everyone was comfortable. Even in a group setting, she provided an individualized experience.

The only way to tour

With only a limited amount of time in Taipei, I decided to book a day tour and I'm glad I did. Not only did I visit some interesting places, I met some nice people, and had a fantastic tour guide. Ting was awesome! You can tell that she genuinely enjoys what she does and is more than happy to share her knowledge and love of Taiwan. I appreciated the directions beginning/end train station, line, exit , ticket price, and marked street route on how to get to back to my hotel from the last tour stop. This was done for each group member. After the tour, she sent an email with a list of things to do in Taipei, as well as a link to the many pictures she'd taken that day. I highly recommend this tour and Ting!

Great way to see Taipei

Great way to see Taipei if you are pressed for time. I was in Taipei on a business trip and had only one day to see the highlights of the city. This tour covered all of the key sites in about 9 hours. The guide - Jett - was very friendly and very knowledgeable about Taiwan with great command of English. The group was a good size - just 6 people. The ride was very comfortable in a nicely equipped van. If you are the kind of person who likes to linger at a site, this tour may be too fast-paced for your taste, but if you want to quickly and efficiently get an appreciation for Taipei, you can't beat this.

Excellent trip

This was my first tour on my four day trip in Taiwan and I'm so glad I booked it. The company that its through is actually very wonderful. They are prompt. They are polite and educated. The van is clean. They know how to drive. The tour guide takes her time and lets you see everything without rushing you. There are a number of spots on the tour and the guide is educated on every single one. Throughout the tour you get a history lesson on Taipei and nice music to listen. She even ordered our lunch for us. It was a small tour 4 ppl. Great time.

A well spent day in Taipei

It was really a great tour. My husband and I really loved it! We had the whole sightseeing the whole of Taipei. Short it maybe but it was all worth it. Your tour guide Kathy was an excellent guide! Send our regards to her. We will definitely come back and book with you even in other places that we will be traveling in the future. Thank you it was a well spent day in Taipei with you guys!

A great way way to see the major landmarks of Taipei

This tour, absolutely was a great way way to see the major landmarks and sights of Taipei. Our guide Eric is a very professional guide with a relaxed , casual demeanor whose experience, knowledge and language skills kept us well informed. Covering the highlights of Taipei with this tour was far more relaxed, informative and inclusive than Shu Yan and I could have achieved by finding our own way around. Excellent!!!
