A great and chilled day out in Taipei. The pace is just right for a day trip. Our guide Clare was friendly and informative. A nice day out in the mountains and lakes surrounding Taipei. I had little knowledge of tea prior to the tour and I learned heaps. Clare chose a great, cheap and yummy lunch spot

Henry was an excellent guide! He answered every question we came up with. There was only two of us so we had a great time. My only suggestion is that we get to try more teas. We tried three and I thought there would be more.

Great Tour!

This tour was the highlight of my trip to Taiwan. The guide, Henry, was very knowledgeable and kind, and he really tried to make experience memorable and unique; I'd immediately book another tour with him given the opportunity. The itinerary included a brief stop at a tea museum, a few tea plantations, a great lunch stop, and a tea house. It was raining, so the outdoor visits were cut a little short--disappointing, but beyond anyone's control. I would definitely recommend this tour and the guide to anyone with a free day in Taipei.

I liked the tour, especially learning about the tea ceremony as the last part of it. The tour is a good way of getting a first, small insight into the "tea topic" around Taipei/Taiwan.

It was basically my first time visiting Taiwan, so I had a lot of questions. The tour guide was professional, friendly and able to answer many of my questions. She was very polite and made the experience memorable. The driver was professional as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about tea and about the country!
