This was an incredible day tour from near the international airport to the magnificent Taroko Gorge. Tom was an extraordinary guide and I will definitely use him when I return to Taiwan - and based in large part on his great tour - and his enthusiasm for other places on his home island that he described but that I did not have time to see - I'll be back.
