Ich fand es richtig klasse dafür, dass es kostenlos ist. War sehr positiv überrascht. Die Inhalte zur Geschichte Taiwans waren auch super interessant und auch auf Englisch gut zu verstehen.

Elliot was a fantastic guide. Incredibly knowledgeable and took us to a great range of places. Tour was slightly longer than stated which was great as he took his time with the information and always had time for people’s questions. 10/10 would recommend.
