Did not receive pictures
We thought Jeff did a good job, but months later we realized we never got all the pictures that he took with his camera. I emailed the tour company and they responded saying that the guide never provided any pictures. A bit disappointing. We left him a tip and a positive review (he asks that we do this in the van before leaving in exchange for a magnet) but he never held up his end of the deal, which was to send us the pictures. We didn't take any pictures ourselves so we have nothing. I guess we didn't leave a large enough tip?? We were the only two in the group.

Best way to visit Taroko Park!
Jul 2020 • Friends
Best way to visit Taroko Park! Iris was so much fun and a wonderful guide. She spoke great English and was so knowledgeable about Hualien, Taroko park, and Taiwan. She would take the time to explain to us different things we saw. We left with lots of new information about the park. She was so friendly and made sure we were always comfortable. Having the car drive us around was so helpful. We were able to see so many parts of the park and Iris knew the roads really well.
I usually get motion sickness from drives, but Iris was so good, I didn’t feel sick at all.
Lunch was also vegetarian friendly.

Intimate tour
Jun 2020 • Couples
Our guide Jeff took us on a tour to the Taroko gorge, and we had a fantastic time! Our favorite spot was the pagoda near the Mercy Mother bridge. We sat down and felt the nice breeze. Much needed break from the heat!

Jeff was extremely knowledgeable of the landscape as well as the history of the gorge. Highly recommended.

A wonderful day!
Jun 2020 • Couples
What an amazing day in Taroko National Park! We decided book a tour with EyeTravel Taiwan because we did not want to have to worry about the logistics of getting around to all the different spots in the park. It was well worth the expense to have a local guide that knew the in and outs of the park. Our guide, Jeff Jiang, was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the park that we would not have known if we hadn’t booked the tour. I would recommend this tour for those who want to experience all the highlights of Taroko National Park but do not want to worry with logistics. A wonderful day!

Great full day tour with much of the variety the gorge has to offer!
Mar 2020 • Solo
I really enjoyed the few hikes in different parts of the gorge. We saw a temple and shrine with a great view, a couple hikes with different views more inside the gorge, and the cliffs at the end were really nice. Not too tiring, but a nice amount of physical activity (I'm a 28 yr old relatively fit female). The lunch place was great too! Great day with Jeff Jiang as our guide. Definitely recommend!
