What people are saying about Hualien
This tour is an excellent introduction to Taiwan. It covers the highlights while you travel in comfort and stay in luxurious hotels. The trip is well planned and thought out to the smallest detail. Booking was easy, questions answered fully in a timely manner. Everything was confirmed right from the start. We even got a call the night before to remind us of our hotel pick up. Each day our awesome guide, Alan Chou, outlined the days activities with a visual slide show, providing us with information about the places, along with tips and suggestions, answering our questions, to make the most of our experience. Also appreciated that while traveling, we stopped every 1.5 for a toilet break. Alan is very knowledgeable, informative, professional and personable. Loved his stories and humour. Our driver was excellent, safe and considerate. The coach was comfortable, clean, great wifi. We always got a morning wakeup call at the hotel. Breakfast buffets were unbelievable. Taiwan is a beautiful.
My experience from the recent past 5-days Taiwan Tour was great! This must begin with the nice tour guide and the safe coach driver, then the places of interest and the schedule. We were lucky to have good weather throughout the trip. Thus, we did not miss any of the itenenaries as scheduled, without mentioning the bonus short walking-trail trips as often stressed by the tour guide as "good-news". Among many good memories, on one occasion, I appreciated much on the tour guide, MR Eric Lin, had returned personally to the Jade shop to locate my son and I with the panics looks on his face after the time out. MR Eric is bilingual, most of the time, he took the troublesome to speak two languages to the group in English and Chinese (repeating the same messages). This also means he had less resting time. The coach driver was patience and had demonstrated good driving skills and safety conscious. Surprisingly, Eric also took some photos during the journey and shared to the group.
This was a wonderful tour - beyond our expectations. Our tour guide Alan Chou was extremely knowledgeable, and always willing to answer all our questions. It was very easy to understand and follow what he was showing us. The hotels were great with excellent breakfast options. The bus was very comfortable, wi-fi worked great, and the driver very skillful. The itinerary was scenic and Taroko Gorge a grand finale. 5 stars for Alan and this tour.
The tour was well organized and the guide Alan Chou was excellent...Alan Chou was personable, entertaining, organized, and a wealth of historical information. He answered every question and looked after everyone on the tour as well as recommending foods and places to eat....We were so fortunate to have him as our guide....
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.
