What To Expect

Take a private day tour to what is arguably Taiwan's most scenic destination, Taroko National Park. Showcasing a diverse range of nature and wildlife: travel from rugged coast, to luscious forest, to the dramatic cliff faces of 19km Taroko Gorge. Delve into the heart of the park at the Swallow Grotto Trail, interspersed with tunnels and the best viewpoint for overlooking the narrowest part of the gorge, where the river is at its most dramatic. After lunch in scenic Tianxiang, you'll visit the Changchung Shrine (or the Eternal Spring Shrine), a beautiful temple nestled within the hillside, atop a waterfall stream that supposedly never stops running (hence the name of the shrine). Before ending at Qixingtan, famed for its pebble beach and fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean.

    There was no audio guide or tour guide, our driver though did try to speak in english as much as possible. Still, the Gorge was pretty amazing and a must see! Make sure to bring your walking shoes.
  • Rajat Kumar 14 Jul 2018
    Great experience. We booked a day tour for a Taroko Gorge day trips. We are pleased that our transaction went smoothly. The driver cannot speak english but he is understandable with his app on and he tries his best to communicate with us.
  • Anna 10 Jul 2018
    The pick up was convenient as the bus arrived at our hotel to pick us up. The tour guide, Lao Zhou(老周)was knowledgeable and friendly. He also recommended interesting spots within the scenic areas to take photos at. The timing of the tour was just right for us to visit the attraction spots within 8 hrs comfortably. Thanks!

    Great experience. We booked a day tour for a Taroko Gorge day trips. We are pleased that our transaction went smoothly. The driver cannot speak english but he is understandable with his app on and he tries his best to communicate with us. He is kind and considerate. Thank you that until now, we can't stop talking about our day trip with you.

    This probably was the highlight of my Taiwan tour. Hualien has to be my favorite place. The only problem is that the driver/tour guide doesn't speak english. I traveled alone so I was a bit worried at first. Luckily, there was a lady who speaks Mandarin who translated important announcements to us. I have seen that our guide is really passionate to his work, cheerful and very helpful. Although it was rainy the night before our tour, we were lucky that we had a pleasant weather during our trip. Taroko is a must for those who will visit Taiwan. I didn't avail the lunch based from what I have read from the reviews, and according to the other joiners, it was a very good choice for me. Instead, I bought a packed lunch from 7 11 before hopping at the bus. Fortunately, I had a good time walking and exploring around the area while they were having lunch.

    The activity itself was commendable. The places that we visited during the tour were all amazingly IG-worthy. Management of the vehicular traffic as well as foot traffic was done in an organized manner. There was enough time at every stop to appreciate the surroundings and take pictures. Lunch was provided in the tour, and it was OK. Nothing special but enough to fill. The visit to the souvenir shop was also a delight as it was a legit stop, not some kind of stop that felt forced, which happens in other tours in other parts of Asia. The driver slash guide was funny and friendly, though he only spoke Chinese. The language barrier proved to be a challenge at first especially because during pick-up time, we couldn't find the tour we belonged. I've seen the driver/guide already but we couldn't understand each other. It took several minutes past the supposed departure time when he approached us again and finally let me check his manifest (list of passengers in his bus), and alas, our names were there. A nice story was that there were two Singaporean girls in the tour. They spoke Chinese and English, and they served as uncle driver's translators.

    I joined this tour on 27 June 2018, supposedly for day tour with lunch. However, I missed the 835am meet-up due to confusion with bus/train ticket booking from Taipei to Hualien. I don’t speak Chinese that’s why it’s really challenging for me. I met some people who are kind enough to guide me on the way to Hualien City and assist me to contact the tour driver. I am very thankful that they let me go for the half day tour instead and met the driver at 1045am on the same day at the Tourist Center just infront of Hualien train station. The driver is Chinese and there is no English audio device provided so maybe Klook can edit that info for this tour. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this tour since Taroko Gorge is part of my bucket list. I am thankful to meet other travellers who helped me translate Chinese to English along the way. We had our lunch in a very nice house and there were only 5 of us plus the driver and the lady who prepared our food. I chose the Seafood noodle soup instead of chicken curry since I cannot take very spicy food. This is my first time to travel alone and this is really a memorable experience. Despite the mishaps, I will still recommend this to my friends😉

    Great and friendly tour guide! The trip was planned with sufficient time at each location and the tour guide provide us with umbrella when it rains
  • Christoph Julius 30 Jun 2018
    Every thing was as I expected, perfect professional. I can really recommend this tour. If you want it with our without lunch is really your own choice. We choose hotel pick-up and the driver was on-time. Klook sent us the phone number of the tour operator with the reservation. I called them the afternoon before from the hotel and it worked good. I clearly recommend calling the driver the day before because then 100% sure all works out. Price is really good for the tour. I clearly recommend the 1 day tour do not take half day tour.
