Full description
You will be picked up from your hotel in Taipei city between 05:30 AM to 06:10 AM and transferred to Taipei Railway Station to take a train to Hualien. After arrival in Hualien, your friendly and professional local tour guide will take you to explore the amazing Taroko National Park.

Taroko National Park is one of the nine national parks in Taiwan with many beautiful attractions. Your first stop will be the Tunnel of Nine Turns with a total length of 2 kilometers. Taroko Gorge is the most essential section, leaning against the mountain trail's tight deep valleys and overlooking down the rapids of a stream river. The gorge/rock started over 200 million years ago as sediment on the bottom of the ocean. Later, visit the Eternal Spring Shrine, one of the major picturesque points in the park. Enjoy the mesmerizing view of the mountains and waterfall. It is one of the main memorials for veterans as well. 

Next, continue to the Swallow Grotto. "Swallow" refers to the Cross-Island Highway from Jin Heng Park with approximately 500 meters of marble foot canyon walls and numerous small caves. Take a break and enjoy some local Taiwanese cuisine for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, visit the beautiful beach, Cisingtan Scenic Area and then proceed to Hualien Stone Sculptural Park to visit a marble factory. When the tour ends, you will be transferred to return to Hualien Railway Station to take the train back to Taipei by 07:00 PM and then dropped off at your hotel in Taipei.

Far too rushed where it mattered

For a full day tour it was very rushed. In the areas that I actually signed up to see (ie the gorge itself) time was severely limited, minutes at most at some of the key places and the main Swallow Grotto was bypassed entirely for a quicker option which didn't require helmets to be worn. This was explained as being due to road closures but I don't understand why a slower pace to enjoy the beauty of the gorge couldn't have been accommodated by waiting for a subsequent opening in the roadworks. We certainly had heaps of time at the end of the tour for high pressure shopping at places like the marble factory. Lunch was excellent, our tour guide shared interesting and relevant information and I certainly wouldn't have wanted to have driven myself on that road,especially considering the weather (rain). I was asked to pay cash twice despite having booked and paid online.
