Here are some recent testimonials from clients of Life of Taiwan.
After having the best part of 2015 slip past, I felt it necessary to finally write to you and thank Life of Taiwan for the amazing vacation that Ashley and I enjoyed earlier this year. We are both very busy individuals and to take a vacation is something we treasure, so when we contacted you to assist us with the planning of our trip, we had to have full confidence in your ability to meet our needs for a great escape.
It is without question that you exceeded our expectations. As this was my first visit to Taiwan, I wanted to see a bit of everything without the hassles of jumping on and off busses, trains, tour groups, etc. I wanted to see the natural highlights of the country as well as the famous busy street markets and city life of the major cities.
When we first met our tour guide, Stephen, we weren’t quite sure what to expect but he made us comfortable from the start. He escorted us to a private BMW complete with a driver (I apologize that his name slips my memory at this moment). The team of guide and driver that you set us up with were perfect for us. We quickly became friends as we enjoyed scenic roads, hikes, and foods in Taroko Gorge, Jade Mountain, Tea fields and the major cities.
I won’t go through all the details of the tour you set up for us, but we loved the flexibility that we were offered and the convenience of the private car to make changes and detours as we requested along the way.
Truly a unique experience like no other. And to have it end with a personal gift from your wife to mine followed by a fabulous dinner with you and Stephen was a great gesture that went a long way to show us that you truly care about your clients. I will continue to rave about your services and group to my friends and family … hopefully they will contact you if they ever want to visit Taiwan, in the meantime, I will look forward to our next visit when you can organize the motorcycle trip I would really love to do. Sincere and best regards to you, Stephen and all at Life of Taiwan. Happy holidays!!!

Steve Crook was our guide this autumn in Taiwan and took us around Taipei, Tainan, on the High Speed Train, on the Fenshiqu railway, to tea plantations, on forest walks, around temples, to a bird sanctuary, to day and night markets, museums galore and to many local restaurants and all with the accompaniment of staggeringly well informed commentary; and what he didn’t know already he asked locals to help with.
Much of what we saw we would have missed without his company and we would have found many of the restaurants difficult or impossible without his guidance. We had a wonderful time with a flexible easy going Steve. I hope we manage to get back to Taiwan. If we do we’ll talk to Life of Taiwan

Taiwan is a beautiful country that is well worth visiting. We travelled from Shanghai and it was the best decision to spend our precious holidays in Taiwan. The trip was perfectly organised, the schedule was well paced and our expectations were vastly exceeded. During the tour we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere our guide created. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Thank you Life of Taiwan team. We hope to return.

We did one of the first ever tea tours and it was a blast. Went to Ali Shan, San Li Xi, Sun Moon Lake, Dong Ding Mountain and drank fine oolong tea from morning til night. Guide was very knowledgeable on teas, processing methods, harvests and brewing techniques. We stayed in wood cabins in tea gardens surrounded by bird song and tea plants. It was a magical trip and the mountains of Taiwan are very special.
Stephen Carroll – Australia
We travelled with our young child. The Life of Taiwan team were very patient and considerate with our daughter and made arrangements from the beginning to the end so that she would enjoy the trip. This thoughtful and caring approach made the whole trip a very special time for our family. Taiwan is amazing. You have to visit Taroko Gorge and drive over the mountains to Sun Moon Lake. It is the drive of a lifetime. I whole heartedly recommend using Life of Taiwan.

I knew that this trip was going to be a life changer, perspective changer- what I didn’t know is that I would be so deeply touched by this experience and by the new friends I have made. Even though it is unknown when I’ll have the opportunity to visit Taiwan again, I will always surround myself by reminders of my short, albeit wonderful, time there- even something as simple as enjoying Aiyu Jelly in my bubble tea. I would never have been able to have such an intense and in depth experience without the Life of Taiwan team. Mark and Muchin were just amazing and the planning and attention to detail was second to non. I can wholeheartedly recommend Life of Taiwan. First class from start to finish.

Our family did the natural wonders tour and spent 3-4 hours hiking every day. Coming from Shanghai it was just what we needed. Visited Yeh Liu, Taroko, Sun Moon Lake, Ali Shan and Tainan. We were genuinely sad when the tour ended. Taiwan has great hiking and some amazing scenery. The people are very warm and kind.
Thomas and Miri Mayer – Germany
Family tour was great. Our kids had a lot of fun. We cycled around Sun Moon Lake and hiked in Taroko Gorge. Food was excellent. Guide was fun and really took time to make sure all of our needs where taken care of. Taiwan is well worth a visit.
Excellent tour! With airline tickets to Taiwan pre-purchased for my wife and 4 children, our original tour plans with another company fell through two weeks prior to our arrival. I frantically searched for another tour company and Life of Taiwan tours responded to my request very quickly. We laid out our desires to see the whole island over an 11 day period with a stop on Green Island for diving. They worked diligently to plan and book the tour providing frequent updates on the progress. Our family size and timeline made our request difficult, but they came through and delivered a great itinerary.
The tour itself was outstanding and provided our family great memories that will last a lifetime. We chose to tour the beautiful East coast and Taroko gorge first, making our way down to the southern tip of the island. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the airport to fly to Green Island, weather became an issue. All flights and ferries were cancelled to the island due to rough seas and low lying clouds. It became fairly evident that transportation to the island was not going to be available anytime soon. Our guide worked with us to come up with an alternate itinerary, booked new hotels and we were on on way with minimal delay. With four children in tow, expediting this process through the tour company greatly reduced our stress level and allowed us to enjoy our time on the island.
Taiwan is beautiful and sells itself. Life of Taiwan tours provided a great experience with knowledgeable guides and customer service second to none. Would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a tour service in Taiwan.
