Great host. I loved every second she was very personable and gave me the best experience possible. I would love to come back to visit soon and have her host me again in the city.

A word of warning: City Unscripted moves incredibly quickly when it comes to following up on things. I learned this the hard way when I failed to realize that signing up for the tour required me to fill out a questionnaire. To give a quick timescale: I signed up at 9PM, went to bed, and woke up to an email the next morning stating that, since I hadn’t filled out the questionnaire, I’d be auto-assigned to a guide and given a more generalized plan. Understandable if we were in drastically different time zones, but I was just one hour off from theirs (or at least from Taipei’s).

However, I emailed them back, filled out the questionnaire, and was promptly put back on track with a guide they must’ve deemed a better match named Megan. Right from the start, and up until the tour began, Megan was incredibly flexible and accommodating of my requests, which I deeply appreciated, knowing how inconvenient it must have been.

The actual tour was fantastic: I got to see a nice blend of historical and modern architecture, and it was great being able to ask questions about anything and everything! She clearly knew her stuff and was easy to talk to. Even though the tour went at my pace, we were still able to hit all the beats of her itinerary with time to spare.

She offered an extension that I took, so the tour ended up being a whopping 7 hours, but it all went by in a flash. As they say, time flies when you’re having fun!

After the tour, I unfortunately left my umbrella with her, but she kindly left it with the staff at my hotel the next day.

All in all, it was an absolutely amazing city tour that I’d definitely recommend to anyone interested in everything from mainstream to niche tourist spots! Just keep my warning in mind and make sure to fill out that questionnaire.

Winnie is a real pro! She knows her stuff. We packed in so much in our half day tour. She showed us so much, and we really learned a lot about the history and the culture. She set us up to be able to use the metro throughout our trip, which I don't think we would have ventured into without her guidance. Five Stars! Would definitely recommend.

Vila was our tour guide. She picked us up from our hotel and discussed what our interests were for the tour. She was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Taiwan. I would highly recommend Vila and this tour.

Public transport brought
us closer to the locals. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. She went out of her way to be efficient.

Megan was great! She accommodated our need for a different start time due to our arrival in Taipei. It was a great tour to begin our week. The tour was just as described. She was very personable and helpful. She introduced us to a great restaurant and gave good tips that helped the rest of our trip.

My guide RoRo was very phenomenal! She completely customized the tour to everything I wanted to do. She was so helpful in making getting around the city easy. We had a great day together and saw so much more in a day with her then I ever would have on my own. We got in hiking Elephant mountain, temples, tea tastings, a market and much more! Would highly recommend.

We would 100% highly recommend dragon/ Peining Lung for this Private walking tour. She is friendly, well spoken, very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour.…
We had such a great time she took us on the trains metro & bus around the city and was all ways on hand showing us how to understand the metro lines. Conversations were not only on the sites we visited but also on the culture, different types of foods, and religions
If you want to see the very best of Taipei then please don’t hesitate to have Dragon as your tour guide I promise you will have an amazing day and learn so much.

As soon as we met Alice at the MRT Station close to our Hotel, we knew it was going to be a great day. Alice is friendly and easy to talk to. She showed us local spots as well as guiding us through the must see attractions of the city.

It was an awesome experience. Breakfast at a local eatery in her neighborhood where we tried new food. Taipei 101, Cheung Hai Shek Memorial, and a bike tour through the city ending with a stroll through Old Street.

Do your self a favor and book with Alice. You wont be disappointed.
