Wade Liu Is a excellence driver guide. He really look after our group very well. He never late for his duty. He is very friendly and cheerful. He has good product knowledge and very familiar with the routing and look into little small things. My friends like him so much and invited him to stay with him for last 3 nights during the tour. We have meals together every day. He always recommend the local good food for us. We thank you for provide us such a wonderful driver guide. I will definite want him to be my guide for next trip to Green Island again. This is the 2nd time I used Round Taiwan round service. I always very satisfied with your company service. Your operation staff Judy is a bit slow on reply my request. But eventually I got want I want. Your Operation staff should improve for suggesting more interesting itinerary for us. We do have some idea itinerary as a ground operator, I think your have better idea of the routing and place of interest to visit, For example the Suspension bridge in Daxi. this is not suitable for old people if they have leg issue. ( Lucky we are all very strong). It was nearly 800 step down and 800 step up. A good driver or guide can make a difference of your service. Which we are very lucky to get the good driver guide. As I mentioned, we might want to travel again with my Daughter and our twin grandsons to Taiwan soon. I will happy to use your service again.

I would like to commend our driver for today, Mr. Zhu. My friends and l thoroughly enjoyed the day’s activities. Not only was Mr. Zhu our driver, he was also an excellent tour guide. He took many memorable photos and videos for us and was very knowledgeable about the locations. He also drove us to another location, free of charge, out of his own goodwill. We are very happy with his service. He even bought us one of Yilan’s specialities. A pancake that tasted extremely local and delicious. Without his services and help, we would not have enjoyed the day as much. Please do pass on our compliments to him, and to whoever it may concern. People like him make us, tourists want to visit Taiwan again. Thank you very much.

about Yilan - Colorful Backyard

Tucked away in the “backyard” of Taiwan, Yilan is merely an hour away from Taipei but boasts a whole lot different view. For those who have enough of the hustle and bustle of cities and are looking for a quick getaway in the open air without travelling too far from Taipei, a carefully planned tour to Yilan is the answer.

In the beginning of the tour, our professional driver/guide will lead you to Mr. Brown Castle Café, where you can savor a magnificent seascape view while sipping a cup of freshly brewed morning coffee. All fuelled up with caffeine, you’re then ready to hit the road again. At Tangweigou Park, you’re going to experience something bizarre but brilliant — a spa treatment where doctor fishes would eat away the dead skin (or keratin) of your feet, whitening the skin of feet and enhancing skin smoothness while you dip your feet into the hot spring pool. For lunch, you’ll dine at Shanzhai Monster Village to enjoy a diverse variety of items on the menu ranging from waffles to pasta and pizza, while being surrounded by (seemingly) monstrous figures in a Japanese setting. After taking a leisure stroll at Jimmy Plaza, a park dedicated to the famous Taiwanese illustrator and picture book writer, you’ll then head to Artemis Garden to have a relaxing and comfortable afternoon.

On a beautiful day trip like this, what better way to end the day than a swig of the world’s best whisky at Kavalan Whisky Distillery?
