This was fabulous. When booking it seemed expensive but on reflections absolutely worth it. We were a party of four ladies two of whom are very experienced walkers and finished the tour wanting to visit Taiwan again to go hiking, the mountains were stunning and there were many walking trails. The train journey is a little long and therefore slightly boring but worth the trip. We had an air-conditioned car with driver plus our guide. Ling Ling was very experienced and knowledgeable, good english and with a lovely sense of humour. The tour did not disappoint with stunning views. We picked this tour as it included some walking all of which I managed despite poor knees I'd class them as family walks. We were right to do so, all of the tour coaches we saw seemed to just stop at odd points and let people get out to take photos. We had the please of walking in the gorge with plenty of time for pics and conversation. This tour lost one star only because we could not hear our tour guide when in the car. She is a small lady and the four of us were in a large 7 seater car with two of us in the back. A microphone would work better or she needs to sit in-between not in the front.
