Tom L.

Pingtung, Taiwan

My name is Tom, I am a private guide catering to you with tailored tours in Taiwan.

I will take you to must go attractions as well as interesting places and people that would never be found on google maps.

Taiwan is a beautiful island at crossroads in many ways that enables you to experience a brilliant diversity in history, geography, culture and anthropology.

I've come out of soil with rich living experiences, I know Taiwan down to the earth. Before being a tour guide I have been a taxi driver, street vendor, factory worker, junk food salesman, paper money (burned in worship) shopkeeper and English tutor.

Because of my living experiences, I can be a fantastic private guide showing you hidden corners and people at every turn.

For example, I have accesses to old Japanese marines that did shoot at Allied troops in Saipan in WWII, a hearty aboriginal youth brewing cups of coffee who descends from a head-hunting clan, a manager of an outdoor traditional opera troupe who would allow my tours to be costumed and get on the stage to perform to please a local goddess on her birthday….

Welcome to Taiwan! Be my friends!

I never see anyone as a tourist!

A Recent Review of this guide

Tom was AWESOME!!! We wanted a more laid back agenda that could accommodate flexibility so we gave him certain things we had found that we thought might be interesting. Ultimately, we incorporated some of those events, added some others and decided against a few. Overall, the day was just great. Worth every dollar!! If you get the chance to book Tom- DO IT! Tom also does a wonderful job of explaining the history of his country and is constantly pointing out and describing cool things.
