What you can expect

Marvel at the weird and wonderful shapes of Yeliu Geopark’s world-famous “Hoodoo Rocks”. Your private host can guide you to the most amazing formations and explain how these geological wonders were formed. Did you know that the locals have given them names such as the “Queen’s Head” and “Fairy Shoe”.

Get ready for more fabulous formations, in a serene non-touristy area by the coast. Admire mushroom, ginger and honeycomb rocks and enjoy the peace and quiet of this alien-like landscape. See how locals peel seaweed from the rocks, and hear how its unique flavor adds a special taste to local delicacies. In this tranquil location, your host may introduce you to Mr Huan, whose pet dog can bark the days of the week - on a Withlocals tour you really do get close to the locals.

Visit some terraced rice paddies hidden away in the mountains. The area is the perfect environment for beautiful wild flowers, especially the Carla Lilly, and brilliant colored birds such as the blue magpie.

On this tour you can also see some of the local town. Stroll down Jingshan Old Street, famous for its sweet potato shops. Here you can find all kinds of potato treats from sweet baked potatoes, to candied sweet potatoes, and much more!

While in town why not visit an authentic fish market? See exotic live fish, king crabs, clams, and oysters. If you’re getting hungry, there’s plenty of delicious sushi, fruit, cooked seafood, and wine for you to choose from.

To top off your day, how about a visit to the Cihu Temple or the Juming Museum? Or both? You decide. This is your very own private tour.

The local hosts on your private tour are all eager to share their insights and anecdotes. Ask as many questions as you want. Take a look at the videos and choose the local you like the most. Want to adjust your private experience to your preferences? No problem – let your host know what you would like to see or do and he/she will make it happen.
