We had a 10 hr tour with Alan. His English was excellent, because he went to college in California. He picked us up at our hotel and we went to the National Museum in time for the opening at 8:30AM. Even though it was Sunday, there were very few tourist for the first half hour. We saw the Jade Cabbage with only two other people! We were disappointed that the Jade Pork has been transferred to the Southern Museum. Next, we went to 101 building and went to the top and had soup dumpling lunch at Dai Tai Fung. Alan was able to get us seats in only 20 minutes, while the line was 2 hrs. Next we went to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial. Alan put us in the best position to see the changing of the guards. We went to see the Grand Palace and then he dropped us off at the airport.
Vincent was an excellent tour guide. His English was spot on, never had to ask him to repeat anything. Was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the areas we visited. He also knows the best places to eat.
It was an exceptional private day tour of Taipei. We accomplished a lot in eight hours. Our guide Jack was fabulous, He tailored the tour to our needs and was insightful, informative and engaging.
Jimmy was a great tour guide. He quickly adapted the agenda to fit my interests and shared lots of interesting information with me about taiwan including it’s people, history, culture and more.
What made the tour worth it are the Din Tai Fung dinner at Taipei 101 and the tour of Lungshan Temple. We also walked through a night market but did not spend a lot of time in it.
