Customized Taiwan Shore Excursion
twoo
, Feb 2020
From our port in Keelung, we had planned on visiting Taipei, but the rainy, cool weather changed our plans. We had planned to see Taipei 101 but we would told that the view would be disappointing, and the crowds/traffic would not be the best of our limited stay in this country. Our tour guide, Crystal, recommended that we visit other sites in Taiwan to maximize our cultural experience during our visit. She offered ponchos to everyone to help with the wet weather, and luckily we bought our umbellas too. Our stops included Yehlui Geo Park, where we saw various natural rock formations. We also visited PingXi, a small town with a railway down its main street and released a sky lantern. A cultural highlight was going to Chuifen and trying out the local street food in its market, Crystal was very knowledgable about the different foods and auggested which ones to try. She took lots of pictures. On the way back to the ship, we stopped at a buddha temple in Keelung. Overall, it was not we had planned but it was still a great experience for our group. I would recommend this tour company but temper your expectations based on the weather.

Best way to get an impression of Taipei and the northern coast including a more than interesting Geo Park.

Caleb was both knowledgeable and generous in sharing history and culture of the locations we visited. We talked at the outset about our interests and he incorporated all of those into the day trip. Wonderful English speaker , great sense of humour and someone who made our tour of Taipei memorable .

Excellent, customized private tour

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children really enjoyed the private tour of Taipei with Mr. James, our driver and guide. He welcomed our suggestions and created an itinerary based on our wishes. I wish that we had more time in Chuifen but we were rushed to get back to Taipei to see other sites. There weren't a lot of shopping options aside from the large corporate chain stores that you can find in the US in Taipei so we wish that we had spent more time in Chuifen shopping at small stores selling local handicrafts. Otherwise, we had a wonderful experience in Taipei. Mr. James was very accommodating, especially to our 2 and 5 year old who kept asking him to play "Baby Shark". He made us feel welcome and we felt very safe with him.

Taipei City Tour

We did a full day tour with Caleb. He knew a lot about the National Palace Museum and did a great job showing us the key pieces and providing info about each item he pointed out. He suggested Lin An Tai a free historic merchants house in a park, explaining the lifestyle depicted. We did a quick stop to see the elaborate Grand Hotel lobby. Then on to Bao-an Temple, Di Hua Street to see the dry goods on display with beautiful building facades on the upper levels, Longshan Temple, the changing of the guards at the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (and just where to stand for the best viewing), and a stop at the Smoothie House for a mango ice treat ranked by CNN as 18th best food to taste in Taiwan. It was a fun day! We couldn't have asked for more.

We had a wonderful and attentive guy in Double Wei. He took us to see the Grand Hotel and other famous sites in the city. He didn't make us walk far, always dropping us off and picking up close by. Although his English was not totally fluent, he did his best. He took us to a great restaurant to try Xiaolungboa (dumplings). The most wonderful part was he took many photos for the four of us so we have lots of good memory at places we visited. Thank you again, Double.

Wonderful Day in Taiwan with Vincent!
Holly_K
, Nov 2019
Vincent picked us up from our cruise ship dock at 8:30 A.M. and orchestrated a great day seeing all the most interesting sights, most of whom we had requested. They included the Chiang Kai-Shek memorial, the 101 Tower, the National Palace Museum, a beautiful Buddhist temple, and the changing of the military guard. All the while he was upbeat, spoke excellent English and took lots of photos of us which he promptly sent us after the tour. He also added a lovely gondola ride up a mountain with spectacular views of Taiwan. He timed everything to get us back to the ship within our guidelines. We highly recommend Vincent for your time in Taiwan!

Michael was already waiting for us in the terminal when we disembarked for our full-day shore excursion. He asked questions about our priorities and listened carefully to our replies. With his knowledge and suggestions and sense of timing, we managed to hit all of the “high spots” plus a couple more! Michael asked us what we’d like for lunch and then took us to the perfect place for us to enjoy delicious local food with local people. He spoke excellent English, which was a big help. After the day’s tour, we are arrived back at the ship with a comfortable amount of time to spare, but feeling that we’d made the most of every moment. Highly recommended!

Roger is the perfect guide to see Taipei
ALLAN_S
, Nov 2019
Roger met us exactly on time in an immaculate car. He was knowledgeable about all of the local areas. For example he showed us the best place to stand to see the changing of the guard at the Chiang Kai Shek memorial. He guided us through the Confucius temple to have our visit pamphlet stamped. His choice of lunch restaurant was perfect. He was attentive helpful and most pleasant to spend the day with. Most highly recommended.

Enjoyable, educational, comfortable tour of Taiwan

On a cruise from Japan to Taiwan, our group of 5 people arranged their own tour of Taiwan via viator.com. Our driver/guide “Tim” was absolutely marvellous listening to what we wanted to visit and advising us on what was possible in the limited time we had available. We visited the Tao temple, Confucius temple, Taipei 101 (not going to top), hot springs in the hills and the geological park with strange stones. The vegetarians in our group were pleased with the lunch they had in Taipei 101 food market as Tim found a good place for them. Tim did a great job comfortably driving us and explaining all the sights to us. We all found it very enjoyable and educational and were given a very good impression of Taiwan. We would highly recommended any cruise passengers booking a similar tour with Tim as their guide, he was very friendly and we made very good use of the limited time we had available thanks to his excellent advise.

Private customised tour with YOLO

We had a really fabulous private tour with out tour guide and driver Roger We agreed on our itinerary with suggestions and recommendations from Roger on the day although we could have done this ahead of the tour. Roger confirmed our meeting arrangements by what's app the night before and we were met by Roger at the cruise terminal punctually as planned. The car was as described clean and comfortable. Roger is s careful driver and was considerate of our comfort anf needs throughout. We were provided eith bottled water too. We saw so much and appreciated Roger' s vast local knowledge and the detailed information he gave us. We asked to eat at a local testaurant he could recommend and we had an excellent meal with him. He showed us how to eat the dished we selected which was fun too. There were plenty of photo stops and overviews of that which we were seeing. He parked close to venues etc which was great for my husband who had injured his leg earlier in our stay. Roger was patient and helpful when it came to locating an atm to get some currency. We haf a very full and interesting day and saw so much too I was a little anxious about getting back to the boat in time as the traffic was heavy coming back from the lantern ceremony but I need not hsve worried as Roger ensured we were back in good time. We had an amazing day and had a really excellent tour and hood memories of our visit to Taiwan. I have no hesitation in recommending YOLO tours and would say that Roger is a really excellent tour guide.

My wife and I recently did this day tour while in Taipei Keelung Harbour on a cruise. Alan was our guide for the day and he gave us an exceptionally good tour of three destinations of our choosing. We had chosen to go to Yehliu Geopark, Taipei 101 building and Jiufen Old Street during our allocated 8 hours and he worked out the best order to do these in to avoid crowds and bad traffic. We met him as planned at 7.30am in the Keelung harbour terminal building and absolutely enjoyed every moment of our day. He goes to these places often and was particularly fun to be with in Jiufen as he knows the shops that give very tasty samples of their wares and we had lunch together in an authentic and very reasonably priced restaurant full of locals. Alan's driving is safe, his car was spotless, his English is great and he is a very nice man. We saw so much in this day at a fraction of the price that other passengers from the cruise would have paid for less sightseeing. The fact that you can choose the places where you want to go makes this company superior to many others. We can absolutely guarantee a great day if you use this company, and particularly Alan, for your shore excursion while in the Taipei area.

This was a great experience and well worth the cost. The freedom to tour at your own pace and ability to choose where you want to go is a great feature.

The guide was 15 minutes late for our meeting. The guide, who barely understands and speaks English. Every word he looks at Google to understand what it is about. It seems that he does not know the history and background of the places we have reached. Since it is difficult to communicate in English, every question we asked he had to use Google to understand what it was about. Also, in the car we toured, sitting for three adults in the back is uncomfortable. We were very disappointed. We expected a tour guid and got a good driver. We do not recommend hiring him as an English tour guides.

Hi, We had improved our experience quality and fixed all the complaints what this customer mentioned on this review, you can see the improvements according to the reviews we got this recent year. According to this customer's complaints, here are our solutions to make the service better: 1. Our driver is not just a driver: Our driver-guide will also do the tour guide's job, gives our mutual customers the introduction of the attractions and takes photos for customers. 2. Good English speaking skills: We had raised the standards of our driver-guide's English speaking level. 3. New 9-seater vans arrival: To make sure our mutual customer the comfortable ride, we had invested new vans to resolve the problems. we will offer a 5-seater car for the group of 1-3 travelers. (Toyota Altis or similar) we will offer a 9-seater van for the group of 4-7 travelers. (VW Caravelle or similar) 4. No more waiting time: We had asked every of our driver-guide to arrive the pick-up location at least 10 mins before the tour start. To deliver our mutual customers a quality tour service is our first priority! Sincerely, Lawson, Agency Founder
