Mr Lai has been most attentive and obliging. He had even prepared bottled water for us. He knows his way around. He never fails to give us a quick brief of the places we were visiting.

Driver is skilfull driving up and down winding roads and curves along mountain roads to Taroko Gorge while pointing out interesting sight along the way. It was a relaxing family tour with photo at Qingxing Cliff gorgeous hills on cloud and lunch at kiosk stop food warm to fill our stomach. The Bayalang Trail a 20 min walk with helmet for safety was interesting and fun in rainy day. We finished tour ahead of time when Mr Xin drop us at Huelian TRA to Taipei. Thank You Mr Xin for the hard day work - we had more time for Ximen shopping in the evening.

Roy has been the best guide I've ever met so far in my life. His passion for his job can be felt through all the minor details he does or tells us throughout the trip. He has great knowledge on all things Taroko and a good sense of humour to keep us entertained for the whole day too. He has been so nice to us and we wouldn't have such a great time without him. Thank you, Roy.

I was pleasantly surprised with the experience we had in our last Taiwan tour. Considering that we had very limited time in Taiwan your guides and tour package I found excellent. More power to you......

about Hualien - Wow ! Taroko

The east side of Taiwan is where Mother Nature has created one of her finest works of art, and a trip to Taiwan wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the magnificent Taroko Gorge. It might sound harsh but it’s the fact. If you are keen to enjoy the generosity of Mother Nature, our Taroko tour will be a delight.

The magnificent area around Qingshui Cliff has been known as one of the Eight Wonders of Taiwan, where you can enjoy a splendid view of the Pacific Ocean, and Swallow Grotto allows visitors to connect with the marvel of Taroko Gorge. Due to long-term erosion of Taroko by the Liwu River into an extremely narrow and deep valley, the marble cliff faces were scoured into hundreds of potholes, which have become a natural nesting location for swallows. Hence the name Swallow Grotto.

After lunch, we will continue our journey to Cimu Bridge to appreciate the most magnificent views of the Gorge's marble walled cliffs. Baiyang Trail featuring valleys, cliffs, waterfalls, rivers, tunnels, and a huge range of flora and fauna along the way will give you a tingling sense of venturing into the wild. Natural spring water empties into the Liwu River below through the front of Eternal Spring Shrine, seemingly tumbling down from heaven and giving it a surreal look, making it one of the most famous scenic spots in Taroko National Park.

At the end of the day, you will find yourself sitting on the beach of Qixingtan staring out into the Pacific Ocean, listening to the waves splashing against the rocks, and enjoying the soothing and stress-relieving moment. It is when fishermen start to sort their catch and amateur anglers put away their fishing poles as the night falls that you realize that it’s also time for you to put a good end to a great day out in the nature.
