Phyllis portrayed herself to be very passionate about introducing Taiwan to us, as she enthusiastically shared both factual information and personal stories with us regarding the places we visited. We were glad with the flexibility of having a personal driver. However, my parents felt that the charges were slightly on the pricey side, as they compared with drivers their friends have used before. For me, I have no experience with other drivers and personally do not like drivers who persuade us to take up their itinerary and accommodations instead of using my own, and so I thought RTR was excellent as I could use my own itinerary and accommodations. More importantly, as I am unable to write in Chinese, the communication in English was what I liked best. I would like to thank RTR for an enjoyable time in Taiwan!

about Taipei - Planless Tour

If you’re not one of those “planning” people and would rather have a trip full of impressions and pleasant surprises, or you simply want to secure the transportation before planning all the details, then this spontaneous tour around Taipei is what you’re looking for. Select a date of the tour from the calendar, the number of people, the service that you’d like to have, and you are more than ready to go! We will agree on your pickup and drop-off locations via email, and you can just hop in a comfortable car, enjoying the tour with our experienced driver/guide and travelling around the city by following his/her recommendations.

If you have a rough plan, let our driver/guide know at the beginning of the tour. He/she will optimize the route and do his very best to bring you to as many places as possible. But if you ask us, we’d say Jiufen and Shifen are definitely not to be missed. If you love street food and sunset on the river bank, Tamsui is a popular destination. If hot springs, hiking, and cherry blossoms are you passions, then Yangmingshan is the place to go. If you’re obsessed with beaches and seafood, then the North Coast merely an hour away from downtown Taipei will be a good idea. But if this is your first time visiting Taipei, then night markets should be on the top of your priority list.

Our driver/guide will be at your disposal for 9 hours on the day of the tour. There is no additional fee as long as you’re within Taipei City limits. Book now, and enjoy a trip of a lifetime on a unique spontaneous tour!
