Hi, I’m Daphne

I’ve lived in Taipei for 43 years

I speak English, Mandarin

I am a Private tour guide


Hello, my name is Daphne, and I am your go-to person on all things Taipei or Taiwanese. If you looking for a city that is vibrant and energetic 24/7 then you've come to the right place. If you think that New York is a city that never sleeps then you have not visited Taipei. When I am free you can find me on one of the numerous hiking trails in the city and after a good hike you can find me lazying on the beach. I call Taipei home cause I'm as familiar with every nook and cranny as if it was my house, so whatever you have planned on your itinerary, I have got you covered. If you are looking for someone to share the culture and customs of the city and introduce you to great food/drinks, then I would love to make your experience a memorable one.
