The food we tasted was amazing. The guide was unbelievably gracious and knowledgable. He not only had us taste some wonderful food, but he patiently answered all our questions, and explained many different aspects of their culture. My wife and I enjoyed the tour so much, that we would take it again the next time we are there.

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.
