Hsiao (Mela) did a fantastic job for our full day, private excursion. With her help, we feel like we got to see a lot of Taipei. She was very passionate about Taipei (and Taiwan in general) and was very proud to show us the cultural and historical sites. We would definitely recommend a tour with Mela!
