Full description
Stroll through the narrow alleyways of Taipei’s oldest district. See how the locals live and chill-out on the streets: playing board games, drinking tea and eating out. Visit a local school and try the wooden hoop game that local kids have played for centuries. Pass through the tiny street full of Chinese medicine shops, a hidden treasure you’d never find in a tourist guide book. Only locals know of it.

On this private tour, experience authentic Taipei. You can also enjoy the must-see sights such as the awesome Lungshan Temple: the oldest and most beautiful temple in the whole of Taipei. Your host will guide you through and you’ll see how the locals use prayer beads before offering food and flowers to their gods. Back in the tranquil, relaxed street life atmosphere, your host can tell you all about the local traditions and customs. You can hear about how the strong family values of the locals are at the heart of almost everything they do. Getting hungry? Choose a tasty curried rice ball or a sweet bean curd snack. You local host can show you where you can enjoy the best in town. 

No trip to Taipei would be complete without a visit to a street market. This tour can include one that you’ll never forget. Fish stalls next to fashion boutiques. Household goods alongside flower shops. It’s all here - the authentic Taipei. The local hosts on your private tour are all great storytellers and can’t wait to share some unique insights and personal anecdotes with you. Also, ask as many questions as you want. Your private host will be a true local and can give you great advice.
