Yi Fen K.

Taipei, Taiwan

"You are the eyes of tourists" one of my guests said to me.

After visiting 40 countries around the world, I decided to become a tour guide of my home country - Taiwan.

For past 20 years, I was eager to see the other part of the world. I tried my best to travel around. When traveling couldn't satisfied me, I spent a year in the UK in order to know more about local life and also received my Master degree.

One day, I realised what I was looking for is not from outside, should be inside. My home country is no less beautiful but very unknown. I think it's time to tell you this hidden gem.

Please come and travel with me! It makes big difference who you travel with. We can talk about Taiwan and also exchange our travel stories! (By the way, I write travel articles for major news papers here)

A Recent Review of this guide

Yi Fen is attentive, thorough and flexible - everything required of a private guide. She is sensitive to client requirements and offers the right amount of information at just the right time. She never made the mistake of talking too much. She reads her clients well; for example, choosing all the right restaurants; and knows exactly what sites and attractions we would be interested in exploring. We would certainly request her if we were to visit Taiwan again.
