Would like to thank James for helping us with the last minute arrangements and booking of the tour, very much appreciated his patience and quick replies. We had a wonderful trip around Taiwan alas short, and that is greatly due to Jack who was a great guide and travel companion. He was super knowledgeable, helpful and fair. We feel very lucky to have had him as our guide. Big thank you! We will for sure return to see more of the beautiful country and solicit your services again, as well as rave about our experience with your company to our friends.

One surprise to me is, I never expect your tour driver is a taxi driver, and I never say she is not good, in fact she is quite nice and patience, show us where to take our lunch, when we come down abit early from Alisan, she bring us to 奋起湖 and Ren Yi Tan Reservoir. At night dinner time, she drive us to one of the local Vegetarian shop.

about Alishan - Giant Forest

Perhaps you have heard of the famous Alishan and its high-mountain teas, but now you want to know what makes this place so popular. A trip to Alishan is all about the beauty of nature and the plentiful gifts it bestows. After a winding trip up through the lush mountainside, you will reach Fenqihu, a quaint village stop on the Alishan Forest Railway that was once an important transit point for the logging industry. A traditional railway bento box for lunch, crisp mist hugging the trees, and the sound of the mountain silence. This is Alishan.Wonder in amazement at the astonishingly tall thousand year old trees of Alishan National Scenic Area and then witness the serenity of the open skies as you stand above a sea of clouds on the mountain summit. And as the day comes to a close, a trip to the tea plantations for a taste of exquisite oolong and green teas will be the perfect accompaniment to a beautiful sunset.
