We had a full day private custom Taipei tour with Roger. Roger was punctual and kind. He was very knowledgeable and attentive, always looking out for our safety and well being, which was very reassuring being on our own in a new city. He made every effort to cater to our needs and helped us see the sights that were of interest to us. He spoke very good English. We really felt that Roger took excellent care of us and we highly recommend him.

We had our own bucket list of places to see, which we gave to Alan our guide/driver when we met.

His expertise and knowledge made seeing everything easy, He also gave us another "must see" (Grand Hotel) which was brilliant. We'd been past it before, but weren't able to stop or go inside as we were in a group. With just us and Alan we got the "grand tour" of the "Grand Hotel", inside and out!

Alan is very professional and also a licensed tour guide, which meant he was able to stay with us all the time when we visited "paid" attractions, so we not only got to see our list, but also had expert explanations about them all, and all in perfect english, which seems to be a rarity in Taiwan!

His car was modern, cool, secure and well detailed. It was a perfect day.

James, our driver/tour guide, was very nice and accommodating. He picked us up at hotel. He took us to the most important sites and recommended an excellent lunch spot for traditional beef noodle soup. The minivan was perfect. He offered historical info and took our photos. He communicated with me via WhatsApp which made everything very easy. He stayed nearby. We were able to experience so much more than on our own. Highly recommend this tour.

Taipei has been on the bucket list for a while, and we had a long list of places to visit in a very short period of time. For this reason, we opted for a full-day custom private tour. We emailed YOLO our wish list of places to see (based on TripAdvisor tips and recommendations from friends), along with a mandatory stop at a playground so that our 4-year old could run around and expend some energy in between sight seeing. We arrived at Keelung Port a little earlier than expected, and thank goodness our guide Alan was already there holding up a sign with our name. Alan was born and raised in Taiwan, but had gone to college in the U.S. and spoke perfect English, which was a huge bonus.

We got to see 7 out of the 8 places on our list, which was in itself a feat. Lungshan Temple was closed due to the holiday, but we got to visit:
• The National Palace Museum (and saw the famed Jade Cabbage)
• Martyr’s Shrine (arriving just in time for the changing of the guards)
• The Grand Hotel
• Dalongdong Bao An Temple (Alan practiced Taoism and provided wealth of information about the temple)
• Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall
• A “secret spot” where we could get a photo of both Taipei 101 (tallest building in Taiwan and #11 tallest building in the world), and the Twisted Building (home to billionaires, each unit starting at $13m)

In addition to the famous landmarks, we also grabbed a quick lunch at Mos Burger (had a Tempura Shrimp “sandwich” with the bun made of sushi rice), and spent about 30 minutes at a local playground where our son ran around and played with a couple of local kids. This was probably the highlight of our trip—hearing his squeals of glee while playing chase and running circles around the play structure.

I can’t recommend Alan and YOLO Travel enough. As their company name says: You Only Live Once!

An excellent day with an itinerary of our own choosing.
Allan emailed the day before we were due in port to confirm specific pick up details and he was exactly where he stated. In reply to this and having now conducted some research, I suggested what we would definitely like to do and what sights were secondary, though I had no idea on timings and distances. This gave Allan time to digest and plan a route for us.
Everything worked out perfectly and whilst we knew that our suggestions would stretch the time, we did all that we wanted and Allan didn’t make it seem rushed. We first went to Yehliu Geopark as Allan suggested this always get more busy as the day goes on, then Jiufen, an old gold mining town. (With his little car Allan was able to get us in much closer- as a local he knew where to park) We had a brief tea tasting and some street food on the go - it was our choice not to take time out for a full lunch.
Both of these places were definitely worth doing and if like us you had travelled around other key points of Japan on a cruise, they offered something different to see.
It did take some time to travel between them, but enroute back to the ship Allan was happy to accommodate a couple of photo-stops, ensuring that we were back at the ship well before the due time.
Allan speaks excellent English and has a wealth of knowledge which he is happy to share as you travel around with him. We have always found independent tours to be more to our liking, as they can be tailored not only to your interests , but also maximise timings (within ship limits)
Would definitely recommend YOLO and Allan.

Our guide was Alan, who picked us up from our hotel and customised the perfect tour that explored the best food and cultural sights that Taipei had to offer. His English was so good.

We were made to feel very special, Alan's knowledge and willingness to answer all our questions was awesome. He Knows all the hidden local spots and great places to eat.

Our experience was that good we ended up booking the Northern tour and the shilin night market tour to get the most out of our short time in Taiwan.

There was no dull moment. Thanks Alan.

Can't ever have enough bubble tea 😍

We had a great time with Vincent, picking us up from airport and dropping us back after a big but comfortable and interesting day. We stopped for a great roadside breakfast that cost under $10, and had several rounds of awesome dumplings at the Michelin 1Star dumpling restaurant in town for lunch that was definitely a highlite.(less than $60 for the 5 of us including beers) Vincent dropped us directly In front of each temple/stop so it’s a good one one for those less mobile (just watch the gutters). Your left to explore the sites by yourselves, although Vincent did take us through the changing of the guard at the shrine which we all did appreciate and enjoy
as well.

Cash is king in Taipei, many places are cash only so have 2000 to 3000 Taiwan Dollars on you for meals and souvenirs...

Very reasonably priced, hassle free and a great way to kill a day stopover in Taipei like us on our way to Europe.

Great work Vincent, appreciated mate.

It was such an amazing 1 day tour. Our guide, Roger, picked us up at the hotel. Even the music in his car fits the taste of 3 senior ladies. He is so patient, accommodating and so knowledgeable. He brought us where to buy the best pineapple cake of Taiwan, showed us the famous mango smoothie store, and ate lunch at a cheap but delicious Taiwanese restaurant. Roger was so caring and sweet that he always care if we can still continue walking. He even brought us back to the hotel to leave the things we bought and then continued to travel around the city. At our request, he dropped us at Shilin Night Market. Even after the trip, he still reminded us to take the night's rest and our next day's trip with another guide, will be a lot of walking. He even told us to send him a message anytime,in case we encounter problem in Taiwan.

Our guide Jack was great! He text messaged me the day before to confirm our tour and pick-up arrangements. He was right on time to meet us at the airport hotel. Our day tour was well organized and fun...and Jack customized it as we went along. A most enjoyable tour with a great guide!
