A customized trip with Chia-chien
Thank you Chia- Chien for the 2 days one nite, last minute tour without agenda. My main goal is to have some quiet break alone at the famous Sun Moon Lake, see the sunset and sunrise, and do a short run around the lake in the morning and do nothing. The rest is impromptus added side trips. Fascinating, as Chia Chien was most obliging in unscheduled stoppings, eg visited Giant Bicycle Store, tried famous Taiwanese Beef noodles under a fig tree, experienced the Presidential fish that will take you years to de-bone, visited the historical LIN's estate in Tai Chun etc etc.
I most enjoyed my time in the morning at Sun Moon Lake when there was absolute serenity and silence at my surroundings, sipping my coffee and watched the breaking of dawn.
Highly recommend Chia Chien as your tour guide, with or without agenda and she will accommodate. she loves her coffee flask with cold coffee that last the whole day to finish off...
A customized trip with Judy
I was bought an afternoon with Judy and David for my birthday by my wife. They'd planned a really thoughtful few hours through an old and atmospheric part of Taipei including markets, temples and Japanese-era commercial streets which gave a great feeling for the non-touristy life in Taipei, as well as providing great photography opportunities. They also included some additional time (beyond what we paid for by that point) at a beautiful old mansion and gardens specifically so our toddler son could run around and have some fun. David's photography instruction was clear, understanding of my completely lack of capability, and effective, even when using just a smartphone. I'm not a super keen photographer but by the end was really enjoying the various elements required to make a good photo. Alongside this Judy's knowledge of Taipei history was a great counterpart and made for a really great afternoon. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone, no matter what your photography capability or knowledge of Taipei.
A customized trip with Chia-chien
Both are great guides.
We started with Chia Chen who was very open about our wish to have a tour that is suitable for us as moslems. She made a range of interesting itinerary for us.
When Nicholas finally replaced her because Chia’s mother was hospitalized, he also continued what we had agreed with Chia and he showed genuine interest to show Taipei in an informative and fun way to us.
Thank you Chia and Nicholas !
