Sometimes he should haved checked more if we understood well his information, because we didn't speak good english. He was surely a very nice, polite and enthusiast gide. We had a very enjoying trip, thanks to him and your organisation.

The driver, Mr Chen we had in Taipei was very good. He was not only very friendly but also took extra care for my 76 year old grandmother. We have no complaints or issues with the driver or the tour. Generally, we are very pleased with the services and will book tours with you guys when we visit Taiwan in future.

Mr Zheng was very helpful and friendly and made recommendations along way as he saw appropriate. He was engaged my 6 year old boy as well and my son took to him pretty well.

Jeffrey was an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable and often went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. He is an wonderful ambassador for Taiwan and we will strongly recommend our friends to travel with RTR and Jeffrey in particular, in future. Please help us to extend our warmest regards to Jeffrey and wish him a happy 2017!

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?
