    1. From Taipei: Private Scenic Tour to Jiufen, Yehliu & Pingxi

    Taiwan is without a doubt filled with an endless collection of seascapes, landscapes, and beautiful landmarks that will stun even the most articulate poet. This tour is designed for those who wish to visit the most iconic and picturesque sites throughout Northern Taiwan. On top of snapping some Instagram-worthy pictures, learn about the Taiwanese culture and history behind those sites, whilst immersing yourself in the beauty of nature. Make your first stop at the Queen's Head at Yehliu Geopark. Gaze in awe at the magical views of stone formations inside the park. Your guide will not only snap cool shots for you, but will also explain the formation of the unique stones as well as the Taiwanese people and their culture. Then, visit Chifen, which is well known for its beauty and history as a former goldmine town in Northern Taiwan.

  • Private Full-Day Northern Taiwan Tour by Car from Taipei

    2. Private Full-Day Northern Taiwan Tour by Car from Taipei

    Explore Taipei and the surrounding area on an 8-hour private car charter. Discover iconic sights and beauty spots in northern Taiwan without the hassle of public transportation. Choose from a number of itineraries or create your own. Check out the natural beauty of Yangmingshan and Jiufen. See the amazing coastal rock formations at Yehliu, or perhaps enjoy a drive to Pingxi.

    Our guide and driver was Hicks and he is amazing. He is on time, very patient, takes awesome photos, drives well (really rad driving skills), has great energy and attitude, did his planning for all the places we wanted to visit. He facilitated our entire day to make sure it went smoothly and got us to all the places of interest before the sun set. A whole day of driving and hiking did not faze him and I think we were more tired than he was, somehow. Definitely will recommend him to my friends and family when they visit Taipei.
