Exceptional travel experience

"This travel company is exceptional, and I say this from experience. Over the past 30 years my wife and I, together with family members and friends, have made 24 trips to Asia and Africa. For each I worked with a travel agent in the country to be visited to design a customized trip with an emphasis on culture, history, art, food and, particularly, opportunities to meet with the local community. We visited Taiwan twice, in February and October. Life of Taiwan designed adventures that far exceeded our expectations. For example, they arranged for us to stay in two Aboriginal villages, visit and stay with multiple Taiwanese families, stay on two offshore islands and, happily, eat some of the best food I've ever had. I'm anxious to go back."

Bravo for another marvelous Taiwan trip

"Bravo again for planning a wonderful tour for my family. Mr Yuen, the driver could not be more attentive and cordial and considerate with my elderly parents. The van is comfortable and even though my parents did not use the wheelchairs , I do appreciate the gesture. There are not enough words to describe Joe. He is kind, thoughtful, respectful, funny, accommodating, easy going and he has excellent knowledge of Taiwan. I am constantly amazed how he managed to tell me every building or statue or temple that I have pointed to. He is so modest that he will tell me I have been doing this for a while and someone else had asked me before’ with a big smile. He shared his experiences as a guide and we enjoyed chatting with him like friends. His knowledge of Taiwan history is so detailed and he definitely educated me about Taiwan. He is so flexible when we needed to change our planned schedules based on my parents physical abilities and he always will still able to find some interesting spots to see. What a champ. I will for sure be back again. Thank you Maggie for arranging the lovely cuisines as we all had gained more than a few pounds. From Taipei to Taichung to Tainan and Kaohsiung in 9 days was not an easy task. The hotel recommendations were excellent as the Grand Hotel has so much history to see, then Lalu has such a peaceful lake view then Silks Club is modernized and new. All of them are so comfortable. Thanks again for being an amazing company."

Magical Life Long memory

"Our extended family visited Taiwan for the holidays. The logistics of trying to book a trip by ourselves were an impossible hurdle. Life of Taiwan did an amazing job! They coordinated pickups for four different groups arriving at different times and effortlessly managed a flight delay caused by weather. Our all encompassing custom tour included Sun Moon Lake, Taroko National Park, Tainan, Alishan, and finishing with a wonderful stop in Taipei. We experienced wonderful hikes, great meals, beautiful sights, and beautiful culture.

Everyone had their own favorite place. My favorite was Alishan. The amazing local guides, Corbett and Irene, gave us a wonderful introduction to the indigenous people of Taiwan. The people of the De’enyana Village stole my heart.

Our tour bus was comfortable and our driver (Chang) and guide (Steven) were great additions to our experience. Steven really did a wonderful job sharing Taiwan's beauty and keeping us all moving in the right direction."
