Excellent and special tour of taipei and surroundings
This was an awesome tour by our tour guide Jett! He picked us at keelung cruise terminal right on time and took us to a 7-11 to get money exchanged. His car was immaculate and with a blissfully cool AC! We went to Juifen, Yelihu Geopark, and Pingxi as well as for a quick drive around Taipei. Jett was professional and friendly. He was so knowledgable and that really made what we saw come to life! Jett took us to a wonderful restaurant in Juifen where we had beef noodles—one of the iconic dishes of Taiwan—delicious! But our favorite part of the day was releasing a lantern in pingxi! Truly magical!

Great Day of hiking!
We just finished our hiking tour of Yangminshan with Mark! Mark was a wealth of knowledge about the national park and Taiwan in general! He really showed us the natural beauty of Taiwan on our hike. The views of Taipei were amazing. My husbands shoes fell apart, and the driver offered us his slippers so we could continue the tour through the grasslands of Yangminshan. Then Mark brought us to a shoe shop to get a new pair of shoes for my husband. I left Taiwan at age 10, and finally returned forty years later. Mark welcomed me back and showed us the great hospitality and beauty of Taiwan. I will definitely be back to explore more of Taiwan and book it with this tour! He also gave me a parting gift key Chain of Taiwan to welcome me back!

It was a great pleasure to experience such a wonderful trip! The entire trip was amaizing and both the guide tour and the driver fantastic! I would strongly recommend to try them! I hope one day to come again and experience another fantastic moments in Taipei. The route and the selected most relevant things from Taipei were exactly what we expect to see! Don't forget to ask for Dillian as a tour guide:-)!

Personal, Engaging and Fun tour with Dillian!
Dillian Hsu was our personal the BMW (Bike, Metro, Walking) Tour! We had a great time as Dillian was easy, fun, personal and engaging! Dillan gave great explanations on various spots in Taipei. We had a very eating and informative discussion about learning more about Taiwan! Seeing that we were game, she went the extra mile to take us further when we were climbing Elephant Hill. Took many photos for us!! Really had a blast with Dillian!!

Excellent tour!!
A great way to tour the city of Taipei. We visited several ‘must see’ tourist spots in 8 hours. It was fun with a relaxed atmosphere and at our own pace. Phoebe, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and went far and beyond in making us feel comfortable. I will definitely book again in the future!

Very efficient way to see Taipei.
This was a great way to see a lot of Taipei in a short amount of time. Our guide, Esther, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable about the area and it's attractions as you would expect. However she also added personal touches throughout the day that made the trip feel like a friend showing you around her city.

The highlight of our time in Taiwan. Thank you Kai!
My wife and I originally looked into various tours that would get us out of Taipei for a day (we'd already explored a decent amount of the city, and were hoping to check out some of the surrounding area). Eventually we realized that we wanted a customized experience to see various areas ( that we wanted to see a bunch of stuff (Jiufen, Shifen, Jinguashi, Chuen Ji Temple, etc). We ended up booking a private custom tour with MyTaiwan, and the experience was OUTSTANDING. Our guide, Kai, spoke perfect English, and has a wonderful personality. He was funny, courteous, knowledgeable, and basically became "one of the crew" by the end of the day. We ended up seeing so many sights and trying so much food...I couldn't believe how much we packed into one day without feeling rushed at all. Ultimately we did the following: - Jinguashi mine area - Golden Waterfall - Chuen Ji Temple, - seeing the Yin-Yang Sea - Spending a few hours at Jiufen old street (including lunch at a tea-house with a breath-taking was cloudy so the ocean couldn't be seen...but it felt so mystical/magical floating above the clouds!) - Shifen Waterfall - Shifen lantern experience I would highly recommend getting a guide to see these areas, especially if you're short on time. Our time exploring Taipei in the previous days was great, but our time exploring this surrounding region was literally one of the best experiences of our travels. Also...the tour included hotel pickup...and instead of hotel drop-off..we ended up opting to be dropped off a Raohe Night Market..which was awesome!

Absolutely Memorable!!
Yang was an excellent guide with excellent English. Prompt, outgoing and very knowledgeable about Taipei and Taiwanese history. The spot he suggested for lunch was spot-on for what I wanted. A fine day.

It was an amazing holiday for us!
Our tour guide, Tai was fantastic. He catered and customize the tour to our specific interests which was picture perfect locations as we're photography buffs. He was also very knowledgeable about the city, he could explain to us about many aspects such as the fascinating history and exotic culture of this country. He even helped us fare through the rainy weather. He introduced to us many delicious local foods. He went above and beyond by obtaining for us a tour inside of the Presidential Building which was only open once a month so I discovered. It was an amazing holiday for us, from the fantasy town of Jiufen to the majestic National Palace Museum. Our expectations of this trip was exceeded as high as the Taipei 101.

We had a really memorable tour, thanks to Kelly and the very gracious driver.
This was a great experience. We were 7 travelers in our family with our 82-year old mother. The tour guide Kelly had a very upbeat personality, even calling our mother lola which is the Filipino word for grandmother. The tour van was very comfortable and just right for all of us. We told Kelly where we wanted to go and she organized our tour very well for us, starting with the farthest point Yangmingshan to see the geysers and then to Beitou thermal valley. We had beef noodle soup in Beitou. Kelly very graciously looked for some forks for my brother, his wife, and my mother who didn't know how to use chopsticks. We also covered a lot of the sights in our tour of Taipei city - Taipei 101, Chiang Kai Shek and Sun Yat Sen memorial halls, Office of the President. Our last stop was the Taipei handicraft promotion center. We had a really memorable tour, thanks to Kelly and the very gracious driver.

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.
