Latest reviews from our guests

    Our guide Kevin was great. We set a fast pace and seen a lot of great sites in a short 4 hours. Kevin worked us on and off the trains to get to a number of important sites. We went in without a plan and Kevin was great at finding out what we wanted to see and getting us there. I highly recommend our guide Kevin and Viator for a quick impromptu exploration of Taipei!

    I highly recommend the City Unscripted approach to private tours. We were not surrounded by other tourists, and we got a true taste of the city with a knowledgeable and friendly local guide.

    While I was taking lots of pictures, Kevin patiently waited for me, telling us all kinds of things about Taiwanese food and culture. I had many questions that probably seemed strange or even silly, but he was gracious and understanding, and explained things when I asked. Thank you, Kevin!

    This was my first trip to Taipei and my tour guide was amazing. I showed up 15 minutes late and I was worried that they would have left without me But she stayed and waited for me. Megan has no idea how much I appreciate that. She was extremely friendly and personable. Talking to her I felt like I had known her my whole life. She was extremely Knowledgeable. We visited the most amazing temples in Taipei. She was extremely helpful in explaining the Customs and the history of each temple. I will highly recommend her an tour guide.
