Richard was our guide, speaks really good English and is super helpful. He made the arrangements for places I wanted to go to and has a great sense of direction. He also takes great pictures! I'd recommend him to my family and friends for when they visit Taipei.

Really enjoyable tour - as new residents of Taipei, it was great to try some dishes and places we would never have tried on our own. Jones was really friendly and knowledgeable.

Our guide Mr. Lee was extremely committed and well prepared for our previously expressed wishes. Perfect.

I've had the opportunity to know more about Taiwanese lifestyle. The food we eat was very well organized.
