Best decision I made in my taipei trip
“Best decision I made in my taipei trip” I went for a week holiday in taipei and decided to book a private tour with MyTaiwanTour for the first 2 days. I met Tai at the airport and he took us to various places for the 2 days. Tai was one of the best tour guides I ever had - very patient with us and not watching the clock or bringing us to tourist traps to buy stuff. I also went to Hualien and Taichung and believe me the guides there are nowhere near the quality of Tai (I will NEVER hire a private taxi guide in taipei again after being ripped off at Taichung and it was not cheaper either after "additional costs"). Thank you Tai for a wonderful experience - you are the best!!!

Fabulous, Fun & Knowledgeable
“Fabulous, Fun & Knowledgeable” 5 of 5 starsReviewed May 12, 2015 Our tour Guide, TING, with My Taiwan Tours was absolutely the best guide we in had in Asia! Her English was impeccable, she was incredibly knowledgeable about the artifacts in the Museum, and she is fun-loving, enthusiastic and loves meeting people to show them "her Taiwan". Book with MyTaiwanTour.com and ask for Ting as your guide. You won't be disappointed!!

The trail is beautiful!
This is a fantastic way to get out of the city and see the beauty of Taiwan. Susan and team made this a really fun day. The trail is beautiful - I got carried away photographing it all. Recommended for those who like to be active and see the natural side of the country :)
