I was in taiwan for 5 days and booked these 3 tours - Taroko Gorge Full Day Tour (thursday), Sun moon lake (friday), Jiufen (saturday). As I caught the train from taipei, I was very impressed and happy to get an overview of your amazing country side. I got to learn about the local people, amazing sights, food and overall the tour was great! I didnt speak any mandarin but I was able to still enjoy the day tours with the minmal english my guide was able to offer. Highly recommend roundTAIWANround and all the helpful staff! Thank you

Maybe a little more information for the non-chinese speaking clients. Not from the driver, but maybe something in paper before starting the tour?? The driver was great, but we needed the help from english and chinese speaking passengers to understand what to do in each of the stops.

make tour groups smaller - easier to travel with maybe ~8-10 people rather than a bus of 15-20.

about Taroko Shared Tour

Explore the mysterious wonders of Taiwan's eastern region, where nature's grandeur unfolds in majestic mountains and breathtaking coastal landscapes. A journey through Taroko Gorge is an essential experience for anyone visiting the beautiful island of Taiwan.

Embark on a magical adventure through romantic Hualien starting at 8:30 in the morning! Our journey begins in the city center of Hualien, heading towards the Chongde Recreation Area nestled along the Pacific Ocean. Here, the Qingshui Cliffs offer a view of steep mountain walls and crashing waves, providing a sense of the cliff's peril and the refreshing sea breeze. The iconic Taroko Archway welcomes you, marking the entrance to the mysterious realm of Taroko National Park.

Walking along the Shakadang Trail, bask in the warmth of the sunlight, feeling as though you are one with nature. Spend a delightful 60 minutes immersed in the embrace of nature, allowing your body and soul to be rejuvenated. For lunch, we will relocate to Tianxiang, savoring the scenic beauty while enjoying authentic Hualien cuisine. Proceeding along the Swallow Grotto, marvel at the endless cliffs on both sides, a testament to the breathtaking craftsmanship of nature. This is the most scenic section of the Taroko Gorge and a must-visit classic attraction.

Next, we'll explore the Tunnel of Nine Turns, an ancient cave exuding a mysterious atmosphere. With 40 minutes to spare, you'll have ample time to unravel its secrets. Located amidst the green hills and clear waters, Eternal Spring Shrine offers panoramic views of the gorge and the meandering river, with a refreshing spring cascading down the mountainside like an exquisite landscape painting.

Concluding our journey, we'll visit Qixingtan, strolling along the azure pebble beach, feeling the gentle sea breeze, and listening to the Pacific's soothing breath. Whether admiring the moon or stargazing, you'll witness the perfect conclusion to this incredible Taroko adventure. We'll drop you off at your hotel in Hualien, Hualien Train Station, or Dongdamen Night Market, concluding this romantic one-day tour. A day of exploration that immerses you in the natural beauty of Hualien, leaving unforgettable memories.
