    Absolutely delightful. :) If you like stress-free walk while learning. Go for all the walking tours with Like It Formosa. If your endurance permits, go for all three in a day.

What To Expect

The West side of Taipei was once the hub for economic and political activities back when Taiwan's modern development was at its peak. With this tour, you will walk back in time through Taiwan's rich history and culture - learn about traditional beliefs during the Qing dynasty, the cultural change when it was under Japanese ruling, to the political landscape during the arrival of the Nationalist government in the 1950's. The 2.5 hour guided tour will take you to all the essential attractions in West Taipei such as the Longshan Temple, Bopiliao Historical Block, Ximen Red House, and more! It's a great way to get a glimpse of how Taipei was shaped by multiple cultures and historic events. It's perfect for those who want to leisurely explore the best of Taipei with fellow travellers around the world.

    An interesting tour that covers quite a bit of ground. Our guide took us to most of the historical sights in the city and provided insightful commentary along the way on history, politics, food and everyday life. Whilst a map of the walking route would have helped to orientate ourselves better, the only real negative was some of the other participants who simply did not follow instructions on timing and forced others to wait as they made unscheduled stops to take photos in weird places. For a free (tip at the end) tour, we couldn't have asked for more.
  • Emmanuel 24 Sep 2018
    The tour guides gave us a good background about taiwans history which made us appreciate the experience more. Highly recommended

    They are really good! I learned a lot from them! Good in english! I really recommend this tour to my friends! Once I go back in Taiwan, wanna try the night tour with them!

    Boan did a great job walking the group in this tour despite the very sunny weather. He enthusiastically shared interesting facts on each tour itinerary. Recommended for travellers who wants a deeper cultural experience.
  • jessaida linore 22 Sep 2018
    we left 8am on the dot. with Mickey Wang as tour guide. moat of our companions are Filipinos so we feel like touring around Manila. plus our tour guide who was based in Puerto Princesa Palawan for a year made it more enjoyable because he knows our dialect and he is familiar woth our culture. Bus was ok. Aircon was cold (we were at the 2nd to the last row) but we have to get another bus to the Shifen Village and pay 30TWD roundtrip. Tour guide was fun. Driver was courteous. But we were short with time, although we only have 3 spots visited. if you like to just see the view and you are time constrained. then this is the best tour you need. but if you are a shopper (too many good stuffs in Shifen), this is not a good tour group for you.

    So glad we choose to join the Free Walking Tour on September 16. Our  guide were Paul and Wayne. They are both very informative and  knowledgeable. They sure know how to captive everyone with their story  telling skills. Thank you to Paul and Wayne, we gained a lot of new  knowledge about Taiwan,the people and their unique history.
