As a solo traveler, it was a very enjoyable experience to walk through a bit of Taipei’s cultural history. I was fortunate to have a one-to-one experience which allowed a more personable and pleasant experience. Walking through old alleys such as Herb Land and the nearby old market was interesting and insightful to the city’s growth.
The food we tasted was amazing. The guide was unbelievably gracious and knowledgable. He not only had us taste some wonderful food, but he patiently answered all our questions, and explained many different aspects of their culture. My wife and I enjoyed the tour so much, that we would take it again the next time we are there.
For our small group of six (three with mobility issues), it was pleasant and enjoyable half-day tour of Taipei. The points of interests presented gave a unique overview of Taipei’s history. The experience was made all the more special by our quite knowledgeable & helpful guide, Felix. His wry sense of humor was nice touch.
It was a very good experience to sample foods from establishments that are off the beaten track and not a lot of tourists know about. My wife and I were sad though that we were not able to sample foods from a night market due to light rain but honestly, I do not think we would be able to anyway as we were already full!
The time I travelled was during outbreak of Coronavirus. Even though there were only 2 persons left for the tour, the tour still operated. This is very impressive. Overall I like the scenary of Taroko very much. Even though we had 15 minutes at Shakadang trail, but we got enough time for other stops.
