Tour Designers

Gloria Lee

“I informed Gloria of what I want in a tour for my mom’s birthday and she really delivered. I didn’t know what to expect from the bed and breakfast but I just trusted her… it was perfect! Gloria is an itinerary genius!”

Jason Liu

“Jason was great at getting an itinerary together and trying to meet our financial requirements. He kept us informed all the time. Excellent service!”

Maggie Chen

“Truly a unique experience like no other. And to have it end with a personal gift from Maggie to my wife went a long way to show us that you truly care about your clients.”

Tour Guides

Steven Liu

“Steven Liu is another of your excellent staff… I will certainly not forget his patience and dedication towards his job. He deserves my family praises – and they really do have a high regard for his dedication in driving us all safely throughout Taiwan.”

Joe Huang

“Joe Huang is the best guide. He spoke good English, was a skillful and safe driver on the very narrow and steep roads, and was patient and good humoured.”

XiHua Cheng

“Our driver/guide for the 2 days Mr Xi was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and entertaining, even showed us a couple of things we didn’t ask for ( we didn’t even know of them) which was very good of him.”

Patrick Lee

“Patrick, our guide was very informative, sensitive and aware of our needs. He patiently waited for us to take pictures (he also took our pictures a lot) and showed us the specialty food the cities have to offer. He’s also a very good driver.”

Ron Hu

“Our guide Ron was very good in English and explained, narrated to us the history of each place we go to. He knows the background and history.”

Kyle Hsu

“Beautiful country and genuinely gracious people. Almost thinking if we should retire there! Then again, the experience would not have been this fulfilling were it not for Life of Taiwan’s detailed planning and choice of guide (Mr KY Hu) for us.”
