Taipei Like a Local: Culture & Gourmet Street Food

We had an awesome foodie tour with Lynton and cannot recommend him enough. He helped us to understand more about the Taiwanese culture and people. He was thoughtful and generous. The Street food was great. We visited places we would never have thought of giving a second look. Do yourself a favor and book a tour. You won't regret it.

A customized trip with Chia-chien Jessica

I wrote to Chia-Chien about customising a 5 hour tour which must include mountains, incredible scenery and as little crowds as possible. She must’ve thought long and hard because all the places she brought me to were spot on! The trek up to Yinhe Cave was a killer but the views and the waterfall were worth it! I would have continued the trek up but my thighs were killing me!

Headed to Thousand Island Lake in her nifty car after that with more breathtaking scenery amongst the tea plantations! Chia-Chien kindly bought tea eggs and braised tofu to share as a snack! They were much needed after the vertical trek up to Yinhe Cave.

Chia-Chien was super friendly, knowledgeable, took lovely photos and had a whacky sense of humour! She even picked me up at my hotel and dropped me off after. Talk about going the extra mile! Our last stop was this cosy family run cafe surrounded by the swirling mists of the tea plantation hills and I got us some coffee and waffles to share and chat, switching effortlessly between English and Mandarin! It felt like I had spent 4 over hours with a friend!

Anyone who wants to escape from the ordinary in Taiwan should drop Chia-Chien an email! I know I will the next time I am in Taipei! See you again soon, Chia-Chien!

Day Tour to the Scenic North of Taiwan

Daphne was an fun and wonderfully intrepid guide, who braved the rainy weather with three Americans and showed us some of the wonders away from downtown Taipei. From helping us across the stunning geopark at Yehliu, where she kept track of us among the many other umbrellas and pointed us to some of the most delicious ginger tea we've ever experienced, to the magical town of Jiufen and its sublime snacks (nougat crackers!) and tea, Daphne was a pleasure to be with. She was an expert driver and led us through the labyrinthine covered paths of Jiufen with confidence and ease, and always had a fun place or bite to point out. We would never have experienced these amazing places without her inside knowledge, and our trip to Taiwan owes a lot to her companionship and highly professional service. Thank you, Daphne! I miss Taiwan very much, and hope to return someday!
