Eric Wong, United States

A rather pleasant ride through the mountains. Great experience seeing Sun Moon Lake and the national park.

Hung Li, United States

As the name implies this indeed is the Best of Taiwan tour. Exceptional 5-star lodging in Sun-Moon Lake, Chihpen and Taroko with indigenous performance, simple but rich in contents. Our tour guide: Daniel Yu, and bus driver: Andy, were some of the most hard working travel staff that we enjoyed so much. The local tour company Viator chosen: Edison Travel, is top notched, The travel schedule is tight but well paced, we particularly like the carefully selected travel spots composed of nature beauties, religious landmark, geographic wonders and the roar of Pacific. Our only complaint is not about the tour but the flight it took seventeen hours straight flight to get from US to Taipei, so it would be better to be in Taipei a couple days earlier to get some rest before the trip.
