This is an amazing choice of a tour !! Beautiful place, lush greenery and that too at such a distance from busy Taipei. The traditional tea tasting experience was a great cultural experience and I'm glad I had it. Highly recommended tour! Jackie the guide has a great sense of humor too.

Beautiful scenery and an excellent guide

The views and landscapes on this tour are breathtaking. Our guide, Joseph, was fantastic too. He knew so much about the area and about tea. Although I wasn't that enthusiastic about tea at first, I was there for the landscape, Joseph's enthusiasm was contagious and soon became interested in learning about the different types of tea. I highly recommend this tour.

I wasn't very excited. But first I have to say that the guide was very friendly. Unfortunately you only stopped once for 30 minutes at a photo spot for tourists to marvel at the tea plantations. Then we went "but hopp hopp" to a tea house, where the tea culture was introduced to us. Of course you could buy it afterwards. Then “but dalli dalli” quickly chased through the tea museum and then hop home, as more tours are waiting. The tea museum was completed within 7 minutes. There was no time to look at anything. For the price, I am very disappointed as I was mainly interested in the plantations and the lake, but going for a walk was not in my time. Too expensive!
