Loved every minute of this fascinating look into Taiwan’s history and place in the world. Karen explained everything concisely and in entertaining way that the whole group enjoyed. We all asked questions to better understand this fascinating country. Karen was clear and great with our questions. Loved the walk through old walled Taipei where we could imagine the city’s development. Highly recommended.
