Mr. Zheng was a great driver and he really looked after our needs! Like he lent us a umbrella when we didn't have one, brought us to places where we could eat. As well as that, when we missed the last train that we were supposed to take, Mr. Zheng was looking for us and thankfully we could get on the car or else we would've been stranded. Overall great service and it was really fun talking to him as well!

We had an excellent tour with Gabriel as our guide! He is very knowledgeable about the places we visited, and shared many things about Taiwanese culture and history as we travelled from site to site. He also brought us to a nearby tea plantation even though it was not officially on our itinerary, because he thought it was a shame to miss it when we were so near it. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour! Thanks very much, and we will definitely recommend roundTAIWANround to friends travelling to Taiwan :)

Driver Mr Yu has been really helpful in ensuring we reached our hotel/ apartment safely before he leaves. He accomodates to our needs very well and he's a very patient man. He's also a safe driver. We are very pleased with his service.

Driver, Mr He, has a very friendly disposition and gave us great suggestions on lunch as well as during the walk to the sky ladder. Made sure we visited every destination on the itinerary and even went out of the way to stop by few places to take photos. We made in on time to Chiayi and must commend on his good driving skills amidst also some difficult road terrain. He chose to accompany us during the strenuous 3hr+ walk even though he didn't need to and I'm very surprised by his stamina even though he was about twice our age! Mr. He is definitely an asset and I highly recommend him to any of your future customers.

about Nantou - Sky Walking

Although Nantou is a less obvious tourist destination, it is a pleasant surprise to many of its visitors. With its tranquil closeness to nature, people always find there is more to do than imagined. Be warned, this “Sky Walking” tour into the heart of Taiwan is not for everyone — you need to be reasonably sprightly to hike for three good hours and walk comfortably on the sky ladder.

Daan Sea of Bamboo allows you to embrace Mother Nature at its finest while tens of thousands of bamboos under your feet swing along with the breeze. And Zhushan Sky Ladder is another story. It’s exciting and might be a bit terrifying as you’re walking across a suspension bridge to reach Taiji Canyon on the other side. Even so, we highly recommend you to pluck up your courage because the natural and impressive beauty is truly rewarding. After the adrenaline-pumping activity (well, for some of you), we are heading to a rustic little village serving as the terminus of the Jiji tourist railroad — Checheng, with a “wood bucket bento” for lunch. The wood bucket bento is a perfect combination of local lumber industry and the single-portion takeout that miners used to have as everyday meals. After a highly active morning spent at Zhushan Sky Ladder, we can take our time here in Checheng, sit back and relax a bit before experiencing a short nostalgic rail journey to another beautiful town — Jiji.

This tour to Nantou will be a completely different adventure for most travellers and will surely delight those who like to travel a bit off the beaten path yet still expect some serious adrenaline rush. What we can guarantee is that you’ll be immersed in nature and leave feeling rejuvenated.
