Well worth the money you pay for.

Well worth the money you pay for. We only had a short trip in Taipei and wanted to capture as much as we can. Base on travellers reviews, there were a lot of good sites to visit so we booked a Private Custom Tour to select the sites we wanted and go on our pace. We combined city landmarks and out-of-city sites. And though the weather was abit gloomy, our guide accommodated our request. Didn't really know what to expect as it was our first time booking with viator but was quite impress with this tour. You can't get that kind of local insight and capture that much landmarks going on your own. Our guide Amanda, was not only professional she was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Not only did we feel safe with her, you can feel the Taiwanese hospitality thru her. It was like travelling with a local friend. She also made great recommendations on other areas we should visit or things we should try whilst in Taipei. She went above and beyond our expectation to ensure we had a memorable trip.

Great way for long lay over

This was a fantastic tour for our long layover. The guide was phenomenal and we enjoyed everything we went to go see. We paid extra for airport pick up which was totally worth it!! Made everything super convenient and easy for us!! I would highly recommend anyone do this tour, but especially if you have limited time to see things.

Ended up being a great day

Our guide Steve was great. We had a list of things we wanted to see but due to the rain, we had to alter our plans. Steve made recommendations and adjustments and it still ended up being a great day.

Definitely engage their service again

Gordon has been friendly, helpful, professional and resourceful in bringing us to the places that we wanted to visit for the day. We visited the gold museum, walked through the gold mining tunnel, tried gold panning, tried out some of the local delicacies st Jiu Fen and managed to launch a sky lantern at Shifen. We even managed to have a look at the Ying Yang sea which was near the gold museum. If we are to visit Taiwan again, we will definitely engage their service again.

Excellent service.

Excellent service. Our guide spoke very good English. We wanted to get out of the city and explore the Juifen Gold mining town area. A private car was a great way to do that. He took us where we wanted to go and suggested some other places that fitted into the day really well. We had a really great day.

Great guide and itinerary

This tour was secretly one of the best values on Viator as my friend and I were picked up in a luxury vehicle and got to decide our itinerary for a day trip in Taipei at a really great price. If I had the chance to go back and do things over I would have booked this on three different days and chose different activities for each day for a unique one-on-one experience. I would definitely recommend this to others!

The tour guide speak English excellently

We had a great day! Our guide, Steven, was terrific.....due to heavy traffic in the city, we chose to see the Presidential Office Building and the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall then headed outside the city to Jiufen and to Pingxi, both highly recommended! Steven is very knowledgeable, friendly and his English is excellent.

The Private Guided Tou

I joined the Private Guided Tour in the past Lunar New Year. My tour guide was Michael Wu. My family and I had enjoyed the tour very much. Michael had scheduled a no. of good destinations for us, and we especially like the experience of launching Sky Lantern at Shifen and the sightseeing at Beitou.

Tour of Taipei with Michael Wu from MyTaiwan Tour Travel Service

“Tour of Taipei with Michael Wu from MyTaiwan Tour Travel Service” We took an 8-hour tour with Michael Wu from MyTaiwan Tour Travel Service. We had a fantastic time!! Michael was extremely knowledgeable about all the main attractions, key details about Taipei and Taiwan in general, strong knowledge of the local foods/culture/etc. and spoke English perfectly (while also communicating in Mandarin fluently with our kids). It was a terrific experience because Michael customized the entire day for us and got us to the right locations by optimizing our travel route and making sure that we spent most of our time at the top attractions. The vehicle provided for the tour was a large VW van (7-passenger) and it was extremely comfortable for our family (we were total of 7 people where 3 were children). The driver was great too and we always used the best routes and never had any issues getting to all the destinations. Michael went way above and beyond by helping us with all the food (given we are vegetarian) and he even extended his time with us to take us to a special restaurant for dim sum that was 100% vegetarian (this was out of his way and after the tour had ended because he wanted to ensure we got to a good place to eat dinner). Michael was extremely courteous and very helpful throughout our day with him. I would highly recommend asking for Michael if you want to have a great tour of Taipei/Taiwan. Visited November 2015

Great Day!

“Great Day!” My tour of Taipei was a wonderful 9 hr day of not to be missed sites. Our driver & guide were friendly & very knowledgable. There were just 2 of us on the tour which made it very personalized. Don't miss the stinky tofu!

Fantastic Private Tour

“Fantastic Private Tour” I arranged a city tour for my foreign guest from United States. Our schedules changed even on the day of the trip. Micheal was very nice to adjust his time and the tour. We really enjoyed the trip. Michael knew a lot about the city. We not only talked about the sightseeing but also something about the society and political issues. I've also learned much from the trip even though I already lived in Taipei for 15 years. Thanks for Michael's generous hosting and MyTaiwanTour. It's a great experience, and I can't wait to arrange another tour at MyTaiwanTour! Visited November 2015

Best part of our trip!

“Best part of our trip!” We were a group of 6 friends in our mid-twenties traveling to Taiwan for a fun summer trip. We booked this tour for 2 separate days because all of the attractions we wanted to visit were pretty far and public transportation would be pretty inconvenient. It was very easy to book the tour online and they were very accommodating. We chose a few attractions that we wanted to visit, and they promptly emailed back with further details and suggestions. Kelly was our tour guide for both days. She was amazing! Her English was excellent. I believe she majored in history, so she was very informative during the tour. We were very comfortable with her and felt like she was one of our friends. Along the way, she would tell us a little about the country. She would let us know her suggestions for places to eat and visit and we were able to change the itinerary around due to the hot weather. She had so much energy and was so much fun even in the hot, humid, and rainy weather. And each of our tours were 8 hours long! Overall, we were very pleased with this tour company. We were nervous at first that we would not be able to understand our tour guide, but Kelly was so great! We had a fun time and we wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Private tour - excellent

“Private tour - excellent” We had two days on our honeymoon in Taipei, and we spent one of those days on a private tour with Jett. He was EXCELLENT! So incredibly knowledgeable about Taiwanese history and culture, easy to engage with, flexible, and fun. It was my birthday and the second day of our honeymoon the day of our tour, and our guide thoughtfully brought us tea. My husband and I enjoyed our time exploring and learning about Taipei - and we also enjoyed our time talking with our tour guide. I would never hesitate to recommend a private tour through this company. Excellent experience. Jett made all the difference in our trip to Taiwan. Our tour was one of my favorite parts of the entire honeymoon.

Private Custom Tour with MyTaiwanTour.

We (2 of us) booked a Private Custom Tour with MyTaiwanTour. Our guide/driver Steve Lin provided us with an amazing day of sites in the city and surrounding area. I highly recommend this as a way to spend a day in Taipei. Pick the sites you want to see or trust the highly professional and knowledgeable guides (like Steve) to get you safely where you need to be at the right times! From booking right through to the end of our private tour, MyTaiwanTour is extremely professional and helpful. This was a long layover that turned into a day of sightseeing. Thanks to Steve we will be back to Taiwan. Visited December 2015

The private customized tour of Taipei

I organized a private customized tour of Taipei for a group of 22 cruisers. I communicated via email with Ms. Anke Wang and prepayment was required via credit card. She was very helpful throughout and quick to respond. On the day of the tour, our guides and bus were promptly waiting for us to exit the ship. Our tour guide was Fiona, and she was extremely sweet, perky, cheerful, and eager to please. She gave us a lot of information, answered questions, and even awarded small prizes for those that answered her questions correctly. Fiona took us to try some Bubble Tea and to buy a famous artist's work even though these weren't originally scheduled on our tour. Everyone truly enjoyed her and her knowledge of Taiwan. It was wonderful tour and I highly recommend the company to others.

Well customized tour

We had slightly different requirements (and places to visit) and we went on two full day customised tours, one to Houtong/Shifen area and the other to Yehliu/Keelung, with Tina. Service prior to booking (by Julie) was quick and informative. We were informed of a closure (by a third party organisation (Ju Ming museum)- not MTT's fault at all) ahead of time and we were delighted at Tina's recommendations for alternatives (we opted for a short detour to Yangmingshan - fabulous scenery and cool crisp air). Tina was great - we got along very well and she explained places and events in an interesting manner. We were rather sad to see her go at the end of our 2nd day tour. If you want a mix of the usual tourist spots plus some off the track places (do some research on what you would like), i would fully recommend MTT - ask them to customise a tour for you. We were unable to go to Wulai this time round (due to typhoon damage) and when we return on our next trip, we will definitely ask MTT to bring us there.

An exceptional guide tour and an ultimate tour experience

“An exceptional guide tour and an ultimate tour experience” This is my first trip to Taiwan and I wanted to be immersed in the culture and geography of Taipei and it surrounding areas. I contacted MyTaiwanTour and requested the following three private day-tours back to back starting on Jun 8: Taipei Guided Tour, Jioufen Gold Panning and Tea Culture Day Tour. On Jun 8 at 9:00 AM I meet Alex at the front of my hotel entrance as agreed, she was my driver and tour guide. Alex has the knowledge and the skills of a very professional and an experienced tour guide, she would answer my questions about the Taiwanese history and culture, and much more. She gave me excellent advises on where to go and how to avoid crowded areas, which helped a lot in using my tour time efficiently and effectively. The results of these three tours were outstanding and I really enjoyed my time, thank you Alex. Hopefully I will be back to Taiwan for more exploration. Mohammad

The flexibility is why I recommend this tour.

Elephant Mountain, Pinxi and Jiufen - Wonderful Private Tour Outside of Taipei City We did the tour on Sunday, 22 March 2015, Cloudy with a chance of showers. We had a very memorable tour with our guide Steve. We were given a suggested itinerary of places to visit but Steve was welcome to any changes. Steve also introduced us to the must-eat food in Pinxi and Jiufen. He also encouraged me to try the dreaded Stinky Tofu - I must say it was a mouthful but I liked it. This private tour is for you to explore what lies outside of Taipei city. The company can give suggestions but you can make up your own itinerary. The flexibility is why I recommend this tour. About our tour: We started the tour by trekking Elephant Mountain (since the coming day's weather had rain in the forecast). Took us almost 2 hours to complete but it was well worth it - to get to see Taipei city from the top. We then went on our trip to Pinxi where we experienced sending off a lantern off an active railroad track. Our 3 year old loved this. I liked the part when the train passes by and everyone else stands aside to take their own selfies with the train zooming by! Jiufen is a nice place to see some old style street shopping. The view of the Taiwan east coast was marvelous. If we ever come back to Taiwan, we surely will book another private tour with MyTaiwanTour Travel. Steve made us feel at home like a brother showing his family around. Thanks Steve! Keep up the good work and keep in touch. Side Note: Despite the language barrier (note that most tourist signs are also in English), Taiwan is a very family-friendly country - very deep in culture and traditions. It is very clean and organized. Their transportation (MRT) is one of the most efficient and top-notch transit system I've used. Very easy to navigate and always on time. Cheers, TinyFroggie

Beyond our expectation

I went on Yushan Mountain (Jade Mountain) Hike for 2 Nights 2 Guides...2 nights accommodations...many meals provided... I didn't know what to expect coming from the U.S. to TW to Hike the tallest peak in Taiwan. I emailed and messaged Susan at MyTaiwanTour a million times with stupid questions, simple questions, probably multiple of the same...about my concerns and how to prepare...I got to admit she was very patient with me! Even up to the day of leaving on the bus I couldn't find the group at the waiting spot...apparently they didn't know what I would look like as I was the only "foreigner" on the hiking group...but I was still Asian...it was kind of funny as my Guide Mr Zhong expected a Caucasian person so I think initially I was overlooked as I was waiting... 2 Guides were pretty much experts at what they did and Mr Zhong spoke enough English to help me out when necessary. First day is a 5 hour bus ride at night to the first guesthouse where you stay and relax before day 2 where you begin the initial hike....to your 2nd guesthouse...be advised the 2nd one doesn't have showers! So shower up before you leave from the first one...my hot water wasn't working til after I showered... I can't explain the meals they are good but I'm a very picky eater and I prepped myself with a lot of my own goods just in case I didn't eat what they wanted...being that I don't eat much carbs and I worry about facilities I stuck to my own small snacks I brought from the U.S.....overall though the food looked edible and good enough for most of the hike I just don't eat many things.... One guide stayed in front of the group and the other in back to make sure the group stayed together....They boiled water at some breaks and made sure everyone was well accommodated for. Day 3 you hike to the peak starting at 3AM...sounds crazy but it worked out perfectly but freezing and windy at top but definitely worth it... Overall, the hike is pretty easy other than the morning with headlamps and holding on to a chain going up at times... Highly recommend My Taiwan Tour as they were very professional in all aspects of the hike and trip.

Thank you MyTaiwanTour

My partner and I had a 7-day west coast customized tour with MyTaiwanTour in April 2015. (including the first day - ultimate Taipei Tour) We started to look for the private tour in February and have received quotations from few local agents. We immediately decided to choose MyTaiwanTour when we received the answer from the consultant Anke Wang. She impressed us by her professionalism and efficiency. The price was not the priority any more at this point. After few rounds of emails and phone calls, Anke was patient to accommodate our interests and design the itineraries. Our best driver guide Gordon Chen was professional, knowledgeable and passionate about his country’s culture, history and traditions. He is caring and reliable. He speaks excellent English and has great sense of humor and brilliant smile. He provided with right amount of information and made sure the trip was enjoyable. He led us to the small towns where the group tour usually did not go, that we experienced the real Taiwan. He led us to the harbor where the raw fish and sashimi is really fresh and unbelievably cheap. He led us to the unique temples and scenic landmarks where we shot quite much great photos. He led us to taste the famous local foods that were very delicious. I drop my phone in the sea. Gordon altered the itinerary and drove me around to find the repair services in two cities. Gordon is friendly without any attitude, he organized the trip every well and ensured the pleasantness during the tour. We highly recommended Gordon and MyTaiwanTour , and definitely will look forwards to their service when we visit Taiwan next time. Thanks Gordon, Thanks Anke.
