We took at short cab ride to the meetup point to meet the driver and set off on a 1.5 hours trip to Alishan Mountain from Kaohsiung. The driver is so friendly and keep us entertained throughout the trip. He is so knowledgeable and provide us so much insights. He even arrange a surprise for me when he know it is my birthday. That really make my day. Highly recommended to anyone interested in going to Alishan mountain.
Tourguide Mr Liang was very patient and nice guy to talk to. I guess he know we are more adventurous and willing to explore, so he brought us to areas that he also seldom go. He also do ensure we are ok along the way and there was no rushing through the tour. We enjoyed very much of his 2 day tour :) 👍🏻 Well done Mr Liang, thank you.
Very happy to have purchased this trip. We love the flower farm on the way and, of course, I lived up to my Meteor Garden dreams having photos at Chung Cheng University aka Ying De University where they shot most of the scenes of Taiwanese Meteor Garden Season 1. Our tour guide Cindy was so helpful, informative and fun to be with! Highly recommended to Meteor Garden fans :)
Tour guide, Richard picked us up punctually from Chiayi HSR. Richard walked with us and is knowledgeable and entertaining. There was a little issue in our group of 6 and he managed to solve it. Very impressed by his professionism. Tour does not include Alishan entrance ticket NT300 and train ride NT100 though. Alishan is beautiful. Managed to catch 云海 and sunset.
This is one of the unexpected tours I've ever done! Even though going to Alishan was uncomfortably 4-hours long, but it was all worth it! I recommend you choose the tour where you get to stay in Alishan instead as it's great to discover the place for 2 days or more! I wish I would've known how great the experience was: being at the top of the mountains, seeing the century-old trees, witnessing the afternoon sea of clouds, interesting railways; these were just awesome!
One of the best parts of our Taiwan trip! The tour guides Mr. Chen and Wan(? Sorry idk how it’s spelled) were very nice and accommodating! Mr. Chen did not know how to speak English but he used a translator app to communicate with us, which we thought was very nice of him since the listing specifically said the tour would be in Mandarin but we booked it anyway. But the other guide, Mr. Wan spoke English and was very informative.
The trip involved winding roads up and down the mountain so be sure to take/pack meds if you need them! Alishan was beautiful! We didn’t even feel tired walking around because it was cold and it was beautiful. I wish we had more time to take photos, but it’s all good. We had a wonderful group of travelers with us also so that was nice. There was a Singaporean group of guys whow were also tourists who kept translating what Mr. Chen was saying. Very nice group.
We even got to go to a tea shop for some tea tasting and shopping! It was fun and very informative. Got to take home delicious Alishan tea.
