A full day including flight, tour, and lunch. The tour guide picked us up at the airport and was wonderful. He took us to all the high points of the Taroko area. Lunch was traditional Taiwanese and delicious. In the evening, the night market and he gave us great suggestions for food. Well worth the money we spent for this tour! Taroko is beautiful!

The best tour of our lives.

Where to start. We were a little nervous about the tour because the flight hadn't been booked by us but rather the company had done it so we didn't receive the details unti 48-36 hours before the flight, but no worries there because they were amazing with the correspondance. We could send an email and have a reply almost instantaneously which was a great relief. Moving on to the tour itself... We were so so so lucky to have Chester as our tour giude, he knew everything there could be to know about Hualien and lovely sonnets and songs to accompany all the information. After the smooth transition from the plane to the groud, Chester came and picked up our trio of travellers and proceeded to show us the wonderous sights that Hualien had to offer including a few hidden gems before we reached Taroko Gorge. Once we arrived we were greeted with one of the most breath taking views the world has to offer, it's astounding and overwhelming all at the same time. Chester went above and beyond his duties as a tour guide and showed us almost every secret this Groge had to offer! He knew every trail and had planned the tour so well that we even managed to sneak in a few extra trails that are normally not even on the itinerary. Honestly i cannot even begin to express how amazing this experience is, if we could go back and do this tour 10. 20 or even 100 times over we would. We unfortunately did not have enough time to explore the district of Hualien for longer than a single day which is why this tour worked out so perfect for us. From the bottom of our hearts we'd like to thank Chester for showing us a wonderful day in Hualien all whilst on limited time and would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience Taiwan to its fullest. This tour really is not something you should miss.

Taroko Gorge Guided Tour

Flight arrangement - Convenient Check-in. Comfortable aircraft. Aircraft was on schedule. Guide - Alicia was fantastic! She was friendly and knowledgeable> She planned the day well and make very good suggestions when there were unavoidable variances such as site maintenance and weather. Taroko Gorge - We are city folks so Taroko Gorge was really beautiful. The mountain, rivers, fresh air. Pity is was raining heavily and we couldn't go to all the trails as we were worried about the kids' safety. Night Market - Tons of delicious local food. We love Taiwan night market!

We rarely book tours as exploring on our own allows us to take our time and works out to be cheaper! however, I highly recommend this tour! Taroko National Park is one of the nine national parks in Taiwan. The sights are breathtaking, accompanied with an interesting history. We only had a short stay in Taiwan but really wanted to visit so we found this a perfect one day tour. Travelling to Hualien by air saved plenty of time. Preferred this method over a 3-hour train ride. Our flight booking confirmation details were emailed 2 days before the tour so we could print them off or save e-ticket on your mobile. Hopped on an early flight departing from Taipei Songshan Airport. Our tour guide, Alicia, met us at Hualien Airport. There were no others, so it ended up being a private tour! We started our tour early which meant that we missed all the big tour groups and could really enjoy the tranquility. Our first stops were the Qingshui Cliff and Qixingtan Beach. The morning mist made for amazing photos! Then we headed into the National Park! Started off with more photo ops in front of the entrance. We trekked the Shakadang trail which wowed us with its crystal-clear turquoise water and rock/marble formations. Next, visited the Eternal Spring Shine which stands as a memorial for the workers that died during the construction of Central Cross-Island East-West Highway. From Changuang Temple, we crossed the suspension footbridge to climb the stairway to heaven, reaching the Taroko Bell Tower. We had lunch at the restaurant located in the Taroko National Park Visitors Centre. We had a nice choice of lunch options included. Lunch was enjoyable and Alicia met us in the lobby afterwards and we had a brief exploration of the exhibition there is also a film presentation on display. From there, we walked along the Swallow Grotto trail. Safety hats had to be worn due to the risk of falling rocks Alicia provided these. The cliff face against the Liwu River was truly magnificent! Then a visit to the Buluowan Visitors Centre exhibition halls where we learnt about aboriginal culture specifically the Taroko tribe. There was a lovely short film to watch. Alicia also took lead us through the Meander Core Trail which had several platforms that overlooked the Liwu River, Sipan Dam and sections of the eastern edge of Swallow Grotto. Alicia wanted to take us further in but there were road constructions as a result of landslides so we headed back out instead. We headed back to Hualien to Qixingtan Seven Star Lake.. getting it's name from the reflections of the stars - the beach, looking out to the Pacific was beautiful! Alicia tailored the tour to our interests and it was a jammed packed day! We ended up getting pretty tried and rather than the night market, we asked to go into the city instead we had already been to so many different night markets in Taipei which she was happy to accommodate. She organised a meeting point and picked us up, before returning us to the airport - even checking us in at the counter! The flight home to Songshan Airport was smooth. An easy MRT back to our accommodation. Quick stop for dinner snacks and we were ready for bed! Taroko would be one of the highlights of our trip! Alicia was a really lovely guide! She is experienced, knowledgeable and easy going. Her vehicle was new, clean and comfortable. She provided us with water, raincoats, etc.. She even tried to buy us drinks! Ask her as many questions as you like! Please make sure you leave her a tip! I'll only post two photos as a tease because you really have to see these sights for yourself!! Tip: Have a good night sleep before and remember to wear comfortable shoes as there will be plenty of walking in between the car rides.
