Yi Fen (Yvonne) is very experienced and knowledgeable about the city of Taipei and home country of Taiwan. Very articulate and shares the history of Taiwan very well. Very detailed and aware of our needs and desires. Yvonne took us to top restaurants in the area so that we could experience Taipei cuisine and also coastal seafood. She listens to what we want to see and eat and gets it done in the time we have available. Always felt safe and well take care of. Our group of six had a great time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soooo much for this 5 stars rating :) You are very lucky to come before lunar new year so can see this special market. Thank you for recommending me to others. Looking forward to meeting more Hawaii groups!

Yi Fen was a pleasure! She was knowledgeable and informative. Our visits to popular tourist sites were well managed and full of details we might have missed. Out visits to local shopping, off the beaten path markets, and lunch were most entertaining and the food was delicious. Our van was clean and comfortable and our driver was always there when we were ready to move to our next adventure. Great experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this 5 stars rating! Very happy to have you here. Wish you a happy new year too!

Seeing the Fo Guang Shan Buddha Temple was a highlight of our time in Kaohsiung ! Yi Fen is an excellent tour guide! As a special request from a Dutch couple in our group we visited the Performing Arts Center that was designed by a Dutch architect. Highly recommend Yi Fen as your guide in Kaohsiung, we had a wonderful time with her!

Tour: #310223, Keelung 3 Nature Sites, Taipei, Taiwan    view tour
Date: Oct 11/18

A challenging and adventurous day in the Northeast coast of Taiwan with Yi. In spite of a heavy rain and the ship docking in a different port, Yi was still able to find us. We visited Yehliu's hoodoo stones with the wind and waves all around us. Shifen Waterfall was even more majestic with the added rainfall. And "Dark Street" (Jiufen Old Street) was magical with all the people, sights, sounds, and smells of the orient. Yi anticipated our needs. providing each of us with an umbrella. She was outstanding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this 5 stars rating!! Very happy to have your group and wish you all the best!!!

Tour: A Day Outside Taipei, Taipei, Taiwan
Date: Oct 5/18

Yi Fen helped me when I decided I would not tour Taiwan. Her encouragement and suggestions made me want to tour Taiwan with her. The one-day tour she put together for me was great and made me wish I had more days with her to see the whole island. Yi Fen was knowledgable and entertaining and a great travel companion. I put myself totally in her hands and she did great! I will come back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this 5 star rating!! Yes, I will visit US again someday and also hope you come back to Taiwan!!

This was a fabulous tour! Yi Fen was knowledgeable, kind, efficient, punctual and generally lovely to be with. We had a larger party (10 people) and she arranged a private "cutie" bus for us, as well as a single table reservation for lunch. The sights we saw were memorable and we had zero trouble with transportation. A real highlight was the Lungshan Temple- don't miss it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soooo much for the 5 stars rating!! It’s so nice to be with you! Hope to see you again either in Taiwan or in the US :)

Tour: Taipei 2 Days for 2, Taipei, Taiwan
Date: May 23/18

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the 5 star rating!! You are very generous !! Enjoy being with you for 3 days and hope you will come back to Taiwan in the future!!

Yi is an outstanding tour guide. She is friendly, conversant in English and well versed in Taiwanese history, culture and sites. She is willing to adapt the tour based on interest, time, crowds and physical limitations. She carefully chooses a driver that meets the tourist's needs has a good working relationship with her. Yi has extensive world travels so thus strengthening her skills. The tour is well worth the costs paid to accomplish and learn so much in one day. David

Yi Fen spent the day showing us Taipei City. She is extremely knowledgeable and very patient, as we had two children in our group of six. She was also extremely flexible in changing our itinerary to include the National Museum. We would use her again upon a return trip to Taiwan!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the 5 starts rating! Hope next time we can go to Yeh-Liu geo park to see the strange rock formation and Chiu-fen gold mining mountain village.

Tour: Everyday Taipei, Taipei, Taiwan
Date: Oct 5/17

We have no doubt that the tour by Yi Fen on our 1st day in Taipei made all the difference in our appreciation & fondness for Taipei and its wonderful residents. The advice she offered served us well & often throughout our stay & we are so very grateful to her for her honesty, professionalism and willingness to modify her plans to specifically meet our needs. My only regret is that we did not book early enough as Yi Fen was booked for subsequent days. She is quite simply- The Best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hahaha~ Thank you very much for this 5 stars feekback! Soooooo happy to hear from you! It's really great that you enjoy so much and will come back again !! Hope I will be your guide and this time, more than one day XD Looking forward to seeing you next year~~~~~~~~

She was excellent! She was very knowledgeable, professional, courteous, attentive and accommodating. My wife and I really enjoyed her personality and warmth. We learned a lot not only about the places we visited but also about local life and how proud they are of their country. She was also eager to learn about us and our culture! We were very lucky to have her as our tour guide...BTY, we are Hispanics and not even closely related to her...she was that good!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much!! It's my pleasure to be with you for 2 days :) Very happy to share my country with you and thank you for teaching me so much! I already sent an email to my friend in Slovenia and maybe next year, I can pray for you in Medugorje :)
