  • It was a well guided tour. Guide was humble and was giving in depth information of each spot. Most of attractions were covered on time.
  • I recommend this tour! 0 0

  • JM

  • Both the tour guide and driver had been doing great. I am impressed that the tour guide TING TING LI was able to speak Chinese and English fluently. We had a wonderful trip for the past two days The Itineraries are on time, and our guide (Ting Ting Lin) is very communicative, organized, and on point of the itinerary. The driver also fasts and smooth drive though in some parts the road is slippery due to rain, he managed to get us on time and safely. The only unpleasant thing is the bus is dripping of water, smell bad stinky and AC is not working good but overall the 2 day trip is worth the money had a wonderful time.
