Booked this tour a month before I went out to Tai Pei. Booked via Tripadvisor who booked through Viator, paid £127.80. The trip was nice to the national park (average) and hot spring (worth a visit). But don't think the actually tour/tour guide is necessary as well as worth it, considering how much I paid, no real value added insight... More

We used Edison Travel to book a 5 day Taiwan Tour, airport transfers and two Taipei tours. Lisa, our Edison Travel consultant was very helpful and always prompt in responding to our enquiries. I highly recommend this company.

I spent 8 days in Taiwan and wanted to see as much of the Island as possible during my visit. I therefore booked the 5 days around Taiwan tour alongside other half day tours from Taipei. I made the booking directly with Edison as this is the cheapest way of booking. All correspondence was by email and my booking consultant... More

Holly at Edison Travel arranged the trip for us with hotel at Howard Plaza, although only communicated via email, but Holly did provide excellent services and answers to my questions. The hotel recommended was excellent in terms of services, bedding and location. Our tour guide Lenny was exceptional too whom made our trip more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

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.

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
