When we signed up for the tour in Canada we didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. We took the 5 day round Taiwan tour. The guide was excellent and spoke good English. However, we were hit by Typhoon Megi on the second day of the tour and what the tour company did for us made us... More

This tour offers a general picture of Taiwan in 5 days. The tour description is vague, however keep in mind that most of the time is spent on the bus. Even though Taiwan is not a large island, the roads are narrow and winding and transfers take a lot of time. Taroko National Park was the highlight, although little time... More

My comment could be a copy of Kanku9's! I am used to travelling alone but decided to take this travel agency for a five day tour of the island. Excellent communication with the travel agency, excellent tour with excellent hotels (the only weak point is the awfully expensive extra charge for a single room hence the four stars instead of...

We did the 4 day/3 night beautiful Formosa trip with Thomas our guide & Jason our driver-fantastic tour! We've travelled for years & always independently but found Taiwan's Chinese daunting for trip planning. Our hotel recommended this tour. While the sights were wonderful a big highlight for us as foodies were the amazing 10 course lunches we enjoyed daily, specialties... More

Was a most disappointing morning. It had nothing to do with the tour guide, but the government had closed its sites in fear of the typhoon off the coast of Taipei. We were able to visit one temple and the Grand Hotel, otherwise limited to taking pictures outside only. The tour operator did refund $250 which I assume was the... More

We have traveled quite extensively across the different continents. This was our first trip to Taiwan, and I have to say the 5 day Great Island tour with Edison Travel Service was the best bus tour we have ever experienced. Other than what you expect from a good company e.g. clean & comfortable bus, knowledgeable & friendly tour guide, the... More

Chifuen is well worth the visit on relaxed time to wind through the narrow streets and visit the market. The coast is pretty. It all felt very rushed on the half day tour so try to extend by a few hours. The driver on this tour loved the accelerator and I felt very travel sick and I don't get car... More

We took a 5 days highlight tour of Taiwan and booked it through Viator. Locally the tour was with Edison. Tony was our tour guild. He was a great professional. Because the group of 30 consisted of Chinese speakers and English speakers, Tony needed to explain everything in both languages. He did a wonderful job of it. This was a... More

Went on a school trip with ten other people. We toured all over Taiwan, allowing us to view every aspect of Taiwanese life and culture. We traveled on a spacious tour bus with a capacity double that of our party. I think one of the highlights of the trip was not Taiwan itself, but our extremely competent and flexible tour... More
