Guides are nice and funny, however they do not speak English. A western couple that was together with us had a hard time trying to register themselves and have no idea what is going on during the safety briefing. But luckily, there was a video during the briefing and the couple kinda understand what are the dos and don'ts. Otherwise it was great!!

My group was very satisfied with the tour and I would recommend it to my friends who are looking to tour Hualien. My thanks goes to Allie and Judy! They were a great help from the planning to the execution during the trip itself, especially when we had to plan a new itinerary for the last day due to bad weather.

I chose RTR is because there is a platform to communicate via English. It make the booking easier and by using the website communicator is a good way of helping me to find out more information directly with your customer service office who actually provide me with the relevant information and send me the email to assist my booking. Appreciate the help with the booking and arrangement on the hotel pick up to and fro. As for the dolphins watching experienced was good and appreciate to have a short briefing on the dolphins before proceeding to the Pacific Ocean to see the actual dolphins. It was a great and fun trip... Thank you Round Taiwan Round.

  • If you take the Morning Tour (07:00~17:00), we will reach Hualien before 17:30 after the tour.

  • The water condition in Xiuguluan River is subject to change due to season and weather, which may result in different rafting difficulty level. Jul to Sep is the typhoon/raining season in Taiwan, which makes rafting difficulty level higher.
  • A group with 8~10 people is the most recommended capacity to have an enjoyable rafting experience. Since it's a group tour, for a group with less people might be joined to another group for your safety.
