Great stories to accompany the tour. English was great and easily understandable. Nothing felt wasted or over the top. Would recommend to others.

What a great tour! It was the best tour we experienced in Taiwan. Reina gives many interesting facts. For example in Longshan Temple Reina explained how the people communicate to their specific gods. This tour covers the most important sights. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Reina!
