Not having had the tour confirmed ... company not at fault as I booked the day before I left and they ask for min 48hrs notice. My hotel, The Shangri-La were superb in ensuring it was all sorted when I told them on my arrival as it was the next day! The price paid was same as other tour company's but I think this company did a very good job ... pick up from hotel, the driver took us to the airport, sorted all our tickets and took us right up to departures. Flight out to Taroko was 40 mins and arrived in Haulien and had the guide waiting for us. A very luxurious and comfortable coach. The whole trip was breathtakingly beautiful through the gorge and our guide was superb with her knowledge. Lunch when told was 5*, I was sceptical but indeed it was! Silks Place put on an amazing lunch and so much food. The only thing is we probably would have liked about an hour or so for lunch to be a bit more relaxed. The group I was with were amazing, just 10 of us. All in all a splendid trip.
I liked the tour, the gorge is beautiful place and it is worth to see it. The guide is a nice person and talks a lot. However I have complains about the timing. In the morning you are rushed through the gorge and in the afternoon they take you to stupid jade shop....this is not acceptable. More time should be spend in the nature and not in shops selling overpriced goods. A stop in a expensive cofe shop was another trick to rib us off. Besides of that the tour was nice and I recommend to make it
I really enjoyed my day but I did not expect the journey involved. It was not a high speed train which we had in the morning and the train too 3 hours and coming back was faster but still 2.5 hours so a long day on trains. The gorge itself was fairly amazing and the lunch was really good. The guide we nice.
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.
You see a lot of rocks that they say is something. You hike for a good 1.5 hours so it’s not the best for the elderly, or injured. It was fun, but it was also a bit slow
