          The day tour we wanted for Taipei!
          We only had one full day in Taipei to see as much as possible and we chose well with this day tour here by our tour guide Vincent Lee. A big thanks to him for being our guide as he was super knowledgeable and made sure we had a great and safe time during our day tour of Taipei City, he was an excellent photographer as well! We visited a lot of attractions including the Taipei 101 tower, the National Revolution Martyrs Shrine, the National Palace Museum, the Ancestor House Lin An Tai House & Museum, Dalongdong Baoan Temple, Dihua Street, Chang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and Longshan Temple plus a bonus stop at the Grand hotel! If you’re limited on time in Taipei City and want to see as much as possible look no further than this day tour! Highly recommended without a doubt! - Nolan

          Great Day Tour!! Super Worth It
          This was a great tour and a big shoutout to Hicks, our tour guide! He was so great and planned the day so well for us. He took great photos for us and is a pro at showing us where we can take the best views and photos. It was super hot in Taiwan and he was so thoughtful with water in his car and even towels to help with the heat and sweat. He also knew where to find the specialty foods and shops where we visited, and everything was just such a great experience!! Highly recommend this tour, and count yourself super lucky if you get Hicks!!

          Great trip!
          Our tour guide Vincent Lee was a true gem - such an informative, enthusiastic, kind, and accommodating guide! He made our last day in Taiwan truly special - we got to see a lot of northernTaiwan and sample so much delicious food on his recommendation, all of which would have taken us a much longer time to find by ourselves. I cannot recommend him or this trip highly enough (esp for first timers who want to maximize their time here).

          Taiwan’s Best Guide
          We had an all day Taipei city tour with our amazing tour guide and driver Nicolas Ying. He was informative and shared Taiwan’s history each chance he got. Excellent communication prior to the tour via WhatsApp and was on time. Nicolas speaks fantastic English and loves what he does. He took pictures for us multiple times and was incredibly friendly. I will definitely book another tour with Nicolas next time we are in town. Thanks so much for a great time!

          Best tour we’ve taken.
          This was an amazing tour, made even better by our wonderful tour guide Hicks Wang. We took the afternoon tour and we were not disappointed. We started of at the Shifen Waterfall, which the locals refer to as Little Niagra, an apt name, in my view. There are quite a lot of stairs, although in small bursts, and a decent amount of walking, but well worth the effort if you think you can manage. We then took a short trip to the Pingxi Sky Lantern to join many others having a great time. We painted our messages/wishes on all sides of the lantern, which was much larger than we had imagined. It was then fired up with us holding the sides and then we watched it lift into the sky. Great fun. We then drove up the mountain to Jiufen which was the best part of the tour. By the time we reach Jiufen it was nightfall, and this is why we were glad to take the afternoon tour. This place is gorgeous at night, with all the lanterns lighting up the streets and alleys. So much atmosphere. We absolutely loved this trip and would recommend it, and Hicks Wang, to anyone coming to Taipei.

          It was a private car trip by Sean guided us. He was very polite and kind. We traveled in nice timing and very smooth. Only regret is I should have kept a space for food street. They looked very yummy.😋

          Great layover tour with Vincent
          I had about 6 hours before my next flight and booked a tour with Yolo. My guide was Vincent and he was fantastic. Super nice, knowledgeable, great driver and took me to all the places I wanted to see and even got me a traditional Taiwanese breakfast. He made everything super easy, picked me up from convenient spots when there was no parking and answered my hundred questions. Vincent was just delightful!

          We would like to thank our two fantastic tour leaders Vincent and Jackson for a fantastic day! Our group of 9 friends enjoyed every minute of the full-day tour. The programmes were varied, exciting and interesting, and the lunch was fantastic. It will be an everlasting experience for us. We recommend them to everyone for an experience of a lifetime. Greetings from Hungary!

          Is Pony car rental breaking a law in Taiwan?
          We had bad experience with Pony rental due to their pitch-dark tinted windshield and smoking smell in the car. We explained and hoped they would improve but they said that's our eye problem even though we have figured out there is a law that rental car is not allowed to have a dark windshield in Taiwan.

        I had a wonderful customized full day tour thanks to my guide Joseph Sun! We explored Yangmingshan National Park and Yehliu Geopark. Joseph picked me up at my hotel on time, recommended hiking trails in both parks, and gave me plenty of time to explore each area. If you're visiting Taipei and want to take a day trip out of the city, then I highly recommend booking with YOLO Taiwan!

        Jimmy was ery punctual and was at our hotel before 9:00AM. After asking us what we wanted to see, he recommended the best itineray to minimize the crowds, as it was still the Chinese New Year holiday time. We first went to Jiufen, and after walking through the charming alleys and market, went for tea at Amei teahouse. Aftereatds we heading to Shifen to weite our wishes on a lantern which we watched fly into the heavens. A visit and walk to the beautiful Shifen waterfall followed. Finally we visited the spectacular Yehliu Geopark before heading back to our hotel in Taipei. It was an amazing day and Jimmy was very flexible, patient and accommodating to everything we asked. I highly recommend this tour.

        It has been a fun-filled day tour with our guide James. He's been very accomodating with my requests as I'm travelling with 2 seniors and a pregnant wife. James came to our hotel on-time to pick us up and has been very kind and friendly to everyone of us. We were able to visit all the places as per our itinerary and really enjoyed the beautiful sceneries up north of Taiwan. I would highly recommend this tour for families traveling soon to Taiwan!

        Our guide James was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. Most of all he was very kind and accommodating, always making sure we, especially our kids, were having a good time. He drove very well, but our little girl still got motion sickness in his car - he cleaned everything up without any complaint at all. Best way to get around in a relaxed, comfortable manner.

        Amazing tour with Vincent Lee. He didn't even ask us to write a review but I felt the need to because he was so personable, friendly and knowledgeable.

        We had 4 nights in Taipei for vacation and we wanted to make the best of our trip. Knowing very little about Taiwan, we thought it would be best to hire a tour guide to show us around. The tour was 8 hours in total and worth every dollar. We were picked up from our hotel in Toyota Camry and our tour began. We chose the 1PM tour (the latest) and so glad we did because we got to see Jiufen at night with all the lanterns lit.

        The tour is customizable so you are able to set which destinations you want to see so that was really awesome.

        One thing to keep in mind is to download Line or WhatApp so that you are able to message your driver prior to your tour. This will help in organizing your itinerary and arranging the time and pick up place if plans happen to change.

        All in all, a great experience and highly recommend. Vincent, if you see this, thank you again for an amazing day,

        First and foremost: Vincent was a great communicator before the trip took place and an accommodating host and guide as the trip unfolded.

        Ahead of time we agreed that I could personalize the itinerary and THAT was the major reason why I ended up making the investment. I basically saw in one day everything that others say would take two days to experience. And Vincent added few stops along the way that I appreciated. He also allowed me to skip lunch so we could have two more temples.
        It also has to be said that the car was so comfortable, his driving was smooth and him allowing me to have whatever playlist on was also an unexpected plus (he has a list to choose from too in case you need inspiration). Small touches but when you spend the day in the car they do make a difference. Thank you, Vincent!

        Bottom line: pricey but it’s totally worth the investment.

        My tour guide, Harry, was exceptional! I was solo and being with him, from the very start, was like being with a friend! Harry’s communication (very fluent in English) and knowledge of the sites and food choices at the markets made this an unforgettable experience!

        Regarding the itinerary, this tour gives one a beautiful view of the sea (great to get out of the city for a while) and a fun time in the quaint mountain side villages.

        Jimmy was an outstanding guide who was able to show more of Taiwan in a day than I thought I'd see in three days. I had booked 8 hours and we ended up doing about 5 hours outside of Taipei City and 3 hours within it, and the time was used extremely well. I had never had a guide before who operated entirely without a navigation system - Jimmy knew Taiwan like the back of his hand. He also functioned as an interpreter who enabled many conversations with locals. This tour was on my first full day ever in Asia and I couldn't have had a better start.

        Tony was our guide for this tour. I found the level of communication before the tour excellent. It was very clear when to expect a pickup, and we were able to provide our top picks for sites we wanted to see beforehand.

        Tony made sure we saw everything and then some! He provided details at all the stops, knew how to manage maneuvering around crowds, and even took us to some of his favorite locations that were not on our list but worth seeing.

        He went above and beyond, taking our pictures with his own camera and providing us the memory card at the end.

        I can not say enough good things about this day. It was a full day with a significant amount of walking, but well worth it! I booked directly with YoloTaiwan.

        Everything about this tour was top notch!

        Booking was super easy - Eddie was great in helping how to customize our day!

        Our guide Roger communicated with us promptly before the tour, picked us up right on time in a brand new car and was totally friendly and very informative throughout the day.

        He was 100% accommodating when we needed pictures taken, washroom stops or when we asked the same question for the 10th time!

        And of course the sites were better than advertised, just beautiful.

        Highly recommended tour and Roger is a highly recommended guide!
