TESTIMONIALS

 

Dear Ann,

We have had a wonderful time in Taiwan, and the accommodation in Taipei was good. 
Everything went so well, and we enjoyed the  visit to Taroko Gorge - it was amazing.
Our dragon boat race result was good: 5th out of 60 teams.

Your personal attention to this group is greatly appreciated.

Dear Taiwan Holidays,

Thank you very much for the interesting sit-in-coach tour around the island of Taiwan last month.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed all the sightseeing, culture, and food in Taiwan.
We found Taiwan is an amazing place with lots of beautiful scenery – totally unexpected! The tour guide and driver were very friendly and professional. Sam (guide) went out of his way to help me to find the perfect present I want to buy for my daughter in Sydney.

I will definitely encourage all my family and friends they must visit the Ilha Formosa –  beautiful island Taiwan.

2013 Taiwan Group Tour from Australia’s Taiwan Holidays @ Oluanpi Lighthouse, Pintong


 

"Dear Ms. Hung,
I take this opportunity to thank you and your team in Taiwan for providing my family with one of the best guided tours we have ever had. It was deemed as pleasant, professional and memorable.
It was a seamlessly arranged tour for everyone, Kevin enjoyed the theme park, Cathy had been busy shopping and I loved the food and view. We all felt at home in Taiwan.
A special thanks must go to Jessica who helped us meet my mum in Gaoxiong, please take our best regards to her wherever possible. My mum was extremely happy to see Kevin after a year and half and it was a happy reunion.
The accommodation and food were great and I really enjoyed the hot well spa without having to go to Japan and NZ again. What impressed us all was the people in Taiwan. We appreciated their hospitality and friendliness wherever we went and there had never been a pushy sale in all boutiques, which is quite different from some tourist spots in Asia we came across before.
Once again, thanks very much Ann, and I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Taiwan Holidays to any of my friends should this opportunity arise in the future."

Hi Ann,
 
To say about the trip, it was so nice, and better than i expected. Especially you guys, deeply impressed me. Jessica is funny, wide knowledge, and enthusiastic. she organised the trip well, and make us fully enjoyed. The driver has such good driving skill, and he must be the most tired person after the trip. And Ann, you are so friendly, helpful, and took good care of us. Another credit I would like to mention is the meals, I've never had that great group meals in group trips before. And accommodations are also remarkable.
 
Finally, thank you all for providing us good memories in Taiwan!

Hi Ann,

We're very happy with the Easter Holiday Group organize by TaiwanHolidays.com.au.  Services are excellent, the tour guide Sunny is very sweet and helpful especially her massage after I threw up during one of the
trips.  The accommodation and food provided with this tour are great. I have given my trip details to some of my colleagues.

Stopover in Taiwan on my business trip to London last month was great and an enjoyable one. It is definitely less well known as a tourist area compared with Hong Kong which I usually stopover at, but I found the level of service and tourist infrastructure equally great. Local food was surprisingly nice and tasty. I highly recommend the natural hot spring spa in Beitou Mountain 20 min north of Taipei via city metro. Soaking in hot spring surrounded by lush green mountains and creeks was simply the most enjoyable thing after a long flight.

Dear Ann & Team,

We would like to give you our feedback on our recent tour.

Taiwan Tour:
tour guide:  was very good, helpful and friendly to everyone, very well organised
itinerary: Good variety of food and restaurant venues.
Suggestions: would like to have more opportunities to take photos such as the Taipei 101 (daytime)

Japan tour
Tour guide: was also very good. very informative and experienced. (although he has not been out as tour for a while)
Itinerary: very good  (as i have been to Japan also on a 6-day tour a while ago, same cities)
The places of interest he picked were probably the best you need to see from those cities we visited and stayed only for a day or two.
The hotels and meal venues were also of good standard. Personally I also enjoy the experience of taking the train/subway in Tokyo .....to get to Disneyland

We were very satisfied with the Japan tour ...
Hope this maybe helpful to you.

I enjoyed my last trip to Taiwan very much despite the lack of sunshine (but good for photography). The 5 day round island tour was fantastic and the hotels great to stay in. It was a good introduction to the island and I plan more detailed visits in the future. The tour was very professionally organised and so was the tour guide (Walter).

I just want to let you know that my husband and I had a wonderful holiday in Taiwan. Most importantly, we would like to tank you TaiwanHolidays.com.au for organising such an enjoyable holiday for us.
We were very impressed with you; you are kind, enthusiastic and extremely helpful. Your staff Ann (at Sydney International Airport) responded our last minute queries in a professional, patient manner and assisted us with timely check-in.
As you are aware that Taiwan has a lots of hilly roads, but the coach driver did a wonderful job. We felt comfortable and safe on the bus. It was a very successful holiday for us because our tour guide made it possible for us. He was professional, courteous and enthusiastic. His advice was informative and interesting. He was able to give each of us his personal attention.
We would not hesitate to recommend TaiwanHolidays.com.au to our friends and relatives. Congratulation Taiwan Holidays & Travel !

10 Days Dragon Boat Festival Tour with Gourmet Experiences (July 2010)



Dear  Ann,

I  toured Taiwan with your company starting on the 25th september 2010 for 10 days. My name is Valentina Levkowicz. I am writing to you,as I wanted to officially tell you
that my enjoyment  of and education about  this beautiful holiday destination was in large part due to the excellent and hard working tour guide. He has a wonderful and positive attitude to his work and  clients,namely us! I found him to be enthusiastic,inclusive,and made everyone feel comfortable, safe and special.

His knowledge about his country is imparted with pride, warmth and humour. Is there anything this man does not know!! He is  well educated and articulate. Everything worked like clockwork,and this was no mean feat,as we were on a tight schedule,the entire time. He kept us relaxed and happy,and we wanted for nothing. He dealt with the logistics  with calmness,reassured us if we had a question, and was totally professional in his approach and demeanor.

I had complete confidence in his leadership qualities, as i was a solo traveller,and not used to travelling in such a large group. Any concerns I had were  addressed with kindness and respect at all times. He is in my humble opinion the best tour guide a traveller could get,and i  appreciate all his constant hard work and diligence. I will always remember the great places I visited in Taiwan,and there  were so many! We fitted them  all in ,and spent adequate time in all  of them.

I travelled with lovely people and the food was so tasty and  plentiful.i learnt a lot about chinese cooking,and my wok will be  full of new veggies and sauces! For a tour to go smoothly and happily a lot of work is done behind  the scenes. All the tour guides and the incredible driver (sorry,i have forgotten his name)  fulfilled their duties and made  my Taiwan  holiday a value for money trip many times over. I met some great Taiwanese people as well,and they are a  warm,friendly and kind people. 


Your team members are dedicated professionals of whom Taiwan should be proud.They are the frontline  tourism representatives and I  will recommend your company to friends/family who want to visit  in the future.

Mid Autumn Taiwan 10 Day Tour (25/09/10 – 4/10/10)

 
Dear Ann,
 
I write to express our appreciation of your well planned, well run, and hassle free tour.
 
First of all, we found the Taiwan people to be polite, helpful, carefree and honest. We were pleasantly surprised at the airport that the banks and duty free shops had the same exchange rate. Even the hotel exchange rates were only slightly lower.
 
Our tour guide was outstanding. He spoke “News reader” Mandarin and excellent English. He is the only tour guide we know of, who did not once mention the compulsory gratuity. Our bus group consisted of Shanghainese Chinese, Cantonese Chinese, and Caucasian. There were large and small families with young child/ren, couples, seniors and singles. People were from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and the South Coast. The tour guide looked after us all well, and was even able to accommodate some individual requests. We appreciated the thoughtfulness of the frequent restroom stops.
 
All the hotels were top class and well situated. We had early 7am walks and night10pm shopping. We enjoyed the convenience of the Taipei Howard Plaza Hotel, with it’s numerous restaurants/eateries, and the fact that it was walking distance from three Sogo shopping complexes, and near two MIT (metro) Blue & Brown lines.
 
The meals (lunch/dinner) mostly reflected the local cuisine. There was a great variety of food to cater to our taste. The first lunch was served in a “mock” European Palace, and the last lunch in a restaurant like an Art Gallery with art deco, and furniture, where the food was good (Five Dimes Driftwood Restaurant).
 
For the whole trip, we were taken to three speciality places for possible shopping. The tea house (where nobody seemed to buy); the jade place (where everybody bought); and the cake shop (where most seemed to buy). There was absolutely no hassle at these venues.
 
The weather was humid, and the sky was mostly clear without signs of pollution. There was an occasional haze in Taipei. We found the country side to be all green, and the scenery varied from the mountains to the coast and the basin (Taipei). I was most impressed with the Taipei 101, the world’s former tallest building (2004). The elevator was fast and smooth. The clear night view at 89th floor was breath taking.
 
In conclusion, we greatly enjoyed this VALUE FOR MONEY TOUR. We will certainly be recommending it to our family and friends. As a matter of fact, we have already recommended it to our family G.P. who is visiting Taiwan early next year.
 
Yours sincerely,
Alex Fan (a satisfied customer)   6/10/10
 

2010 Christmas Holiday in Taiwan 10 Days Gourmet & Deluxe Tour

The trip to Taiwan has been an awe-inspiring and unforgettable holiday for us. The tour would not be this great and relaxing if it were not for two dedicated staffs of Taiwan Holidays.

 
I’d like to mention the tour guide, an energetic and pretty Taiwanese girl who has shown extraordinary hospitality and friendliness towards us. Her explanations of the sites and history of Taiwan were very insightful; her anecdotes of locals and family life had been very amusing and intriguing. She describes in colorful detail of her childhood home, her bringing up in a typically loving Taiwanese neighborhood and the various ways Taiwanese families support each other and celebrate different festivals. All of these made time fly while we were on the bus trip around the island, none of us felt bored and tired.
 
Apart from countless captivating stories, she welcomed us with singing an intimate Teresa Deng’s song which cheered us up from sleepiness in the early morning after an overnight flight. She bided us farewell with ‘Goodbye my Love’, which made us tear and stop our strides towards return journey.
 
She has entertained us with not only her talent but also accountability from the moment we arrived till the moment we left. Such a diligent, intelligent and humorous girl is a credit of Taiwan and Taiwan Holidays. Without her our trip would not become so impressive and memorable, she will stay in our heart eternally.
 
Another staff who ensured the quality and safety of our trip was Driver Li. The skill of his driving on rugged terrain had been remarkable. Throughout the ten days, Li drove us tirelessly to all tourist sites without any complains of fatigue. On boarding he would always wave and bid us hello: the friendliness and kindness is a vivid representation of Taiwanese people’s quality as well as spirit.
 
From the merely ten days, we have perceived Chinese Culture at the deepest, thank to the tour guide and Driver Li and Taiwan Holidays & Travel for offering us such a invaluable holiday. We appreciate your professional manner, most important your warm hearted attitude.
 
We will recommend you to all our friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbors and whoever possible; actually we are doing so as soon as we returned! Go with Susu, go with Driver Li, go with Taiwan Holidays.

Discover Taiwan 12 Days (Nov 2011)

Hi Christine  Now that we have returned and settled back into our routine life I thought I should send you an email you with some feed back on our trip.    Taiwan was a very interesting and pretty mixture of the ultra modern and the olden days. Both Marg and I would like to visit it again  someday.  The tour/s were well organised which kept us on the go most of the time.  I was impressed by how the tour operater managed to pick us up on time on every tour and generally were at the hotel a good 10 to 15 minutes before time.  The hotel accomodation was above average to excellant.  I liked the Taroko Gorge the best , another thing that we liked was the GALA hotel had maps of the imediate area with points of interest marked in, which helped us get around while it was a small thing it was a great help and I would like to see the same sort of thing in hotels more often.   Overall we beleive that the whole tour was very good value for money. 
 
Thankyou for providing an enjoyable and inexpensive tour.
 
Regards

Double Tenth Taiwan National Day Celebration & Gourmet 10 Days Tour (OCT2011)
 

Dear Ann,

Thanks for the amazing Double Tenth Taiwan National Day Celebration & Gourmet Deluxe tour. It was a wonderful experience being in it.
The staff in your company are very professional. The day we departed from Sydney airport, you were waiting there expecting us with a warm and beautiful smile. You are incredibly nice and friendly, and you helped us check in and filled out the forms and provided all the necessary information about Taiwan.

Throughout the whole 10 days, we almost travelled around the whole island of Taiwan. The tour guide is professional, as she is bilingual in Mandarin and English. She is also very nice and pretty. The food served tasted sensational, the accommodation was all luxury 5-Star hotels, the coach was brand new luxury and the driver has great driving skills, being able to drive over and under mountains.

I’ve been to quite a few countries, but Taiwan appealed the most to me. Friendly citizens, delicious food and beautiful sceneries wherever I go. I would highly recommend www.taiwanholidays.com.au to all my friends, family and colleagues. It was an unforgettable experience and well worth the money.
