About Taiwan Vista Day Tour
Before Taiwan Vista Tour started off, we were simply Hualien locals that love the outdoors and enjoy keeping an active lifestyle. However, when exploring the adventures the beautiful county has to offer, we realized that while many tour options were offered for the most popular destinations, travelers could not fully enjoy the iconic sights of Hualien because the groups were either too large to allow flexibility, or there was a lack of an English guided tour. And so, with our knowledge, experiences and familiarity with Hualien and the breathtaking views it has to offer, we got ourselves certified as professional tour guides. Taiwan Vista Tour then started in 2014 with the goal of providing quality tour guide services for travelers to Taiwan. Since then, thousands of travelers have trusted us to show them the beauty Hualien has to offer. Planning a escapade to Hualien? Let us know what excites your soul, and leave the planning to us! Your adventure awaits, Taiwan Vista Team

We booked a private day tour with Jeff and loved it! Jeff is really nice, knowledgeable, and professional and speaks really good English. My 7 year old daughter was along for the tour and had no problem keeping up. The trails were easy but really pretty. We had a great day and would highly recommend this tour.

Signed up for private tour basically because of mum and dad who are in their 70s, The spots we went within the national park are mostly flat. Taiwan Vista's Jeff took good care of us during the trip. Other than driving us, he gave us some historical background of Hualien and explained lots of relevant info regarding the national park. We were able to take our time at the spots we visited. Taroko is a must do while you're at Hualien, great tour with great service. We've enjoyed it very much.

We were scheduled to be in Keelung on a cruise ship in March/20 so we contacted Taiwan Vista Tours (TVT) about their shore excursions. TVT has standard itineraries for cruise ship visitors but we worked with Kierra to develop a unique private itinerary. She was excellent in making recommendations that would fit into our limited time in port. We booked and made a deposit of 10% of our tour cost via PayPal with the balance to be paid to our driver/guide. That is quite reasonable compared to full advance payment required by other tour operators. Then came coronavirus. Our cruise line made significant itinerary changes that affected our arrival date into Keelung. We went back to Kierra who was very helpful in changing the date of our booked tour in Keelung and in developing another itinerary for an additional day we now had in Taipei. Everything looked great. But then Taiwan announced it would close its ports to all international cruise ships. We no longer would make it to Keelung or Taipei. So we went back to Kierra again and asked for a refund of our tour deposit. Within an hour, we had notice from PayPal that a refund was being processed. It's said you can judge a company by how they respond when things don't go as planned. Our experience with Taiwan Vista Tours was excellent. Huge shout out to Kierra who was responsive, patient and sympathetic to our ever-changing situation. When we're in Taiwan in the future, there is no doubt we'll use Taiwan Vista Tours.

When our American friends come to visit us, we always choose Taroko to show them how beautiful Taiwan Island is. To save time, we'd hire a tax driver for a full-day ride. There are quite a few trails with astonishing views in Taroke National Park. The most exciting one is Baiyang Trail. When you go to the end, you have to take off your shoes and enter a tunnel with bare foot in the water. The tunnel is dark and comes with falls. A lot of fun and surprises. Highly recommended. The other spot you don't want to miss is the Tunnel of Nine Turns. You can have a breathtaking view of marble valley.
