I had a great experience with MyTaiwanTour
Overall, we (mother and I) had a great experience. We did the 8 day, 7 nights private tour around the entirety of Taiwan. MyTaiwan tour was able to get us 5-star hotels for the 7 nights we spent with them. Our tour guide Bill was extremely friendly and provided overall a great experience. If we had the choice to repeat our adventure with them or do other Taiwan adventures with them, we would.
