Johnson is a very nice guy. With the one day tour, I didn’t expect a lot but he took his time to give us some history for Taiwan. I really enjoyed it. Thank you!

He is very accomodating and very nice. Although we are the only one that is not mandarin speaking he still accomodate us. Its a unforgetable experience for us that proves that language is not a barrier when it comes to communication of different nationality. Im very thankful that he did not kick us out(joking) knowing that we are english speaking only. We saw that he really tried to reach to us. Even though we did not understand what he is saying but we get what he is trying to say. Its our first time to have a tour group of full mandarin speaking people and its fun. I love the service. So far contented and happy customer here. Will definitely go back to taiwan soon.

He is very accommodating and very courteous. The service is good. It is just that the time given at the Geopark was so limited. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the trip and will recommend to our friends who might be travelling to Taiwan in the future. Thanks again.

Despite their limited English, both drivers have done their very best to communicate with us and provide us an excellent service. As a group leader of 14 pupils I really appreciated their safe driving (no speeding, no harsh driving). I have really enjoyed your services. I will send a very positive feedback to the French travel agency who put us in contact and I will not hesitate to contact you on the next schooltrips I'll organize.

about [Small Group] Jiufen Shared Tour

The gold rush hastened the village of Jiufen into a prosperous gold mining town until the 1950s, when mining was discontinued and Jiufen itself went into sharp decline. During this shared tour to Jiufen, you will be on the road with other like-minded travellers, peeking into its golden days merely a few decades ago with visits to several other sites that contributed to the heyday of gold mining industry in Taiwan.

Yehliu Geological Park is home to some of the most famous eroded rock formations in the world, where you will be amazed by some of the finest works of art created by Mother Nature. Shuinandong Smelter will whisper to you its history of prosperity and decline. Golden Waterfall is a result of the combination of regular rainfall in this mining area and the abundance of heavy metal elements deposited in the riverbed. At the time, many restaurants and tea houses were opened up on Jiufen Old Street to supply meals to the hungry miners. While you wander your way down to Jiufen Old Street, you will experience the nostalgic charms that have been frozen since the 60s. Before calling it a day, we will make one last stop at Shifen Old Street in Pingxi for you to get a glimpse of the first, once-bustling coal town in the area which still retains the charm of yesteryear. Releasing a sky lantern on the rail here will be a highlight in your Taiwan trip!
