Introduction As we know, the official language of Taiwan is Mandarin and most of the citizens communicate in their own dialect thus, Taipei is not exactly an English-friendly city. However, with the help of TourMeAway, international travellers will be able to visit the city with ease.
TourMeAway's mission is to break through the language barrier and ensure backpackers travellers enjoy their stay in Taipei. All tours are conducted by their own local guides (some of which are students), who are passionate about their job and would like to share insightful information to all! Most of these guides also see the tours as a great opportunity to be able to converse with international guests in English, which otherwise they don't get a lot of chance to do so in their local neighbourhoods.
TourMeAway offer tours every day from Monday to Sunday. In total, there are six different tours covering different aspect of Taipei from history to culinary to nightlife.
One of the most popular tours that occurs thrice a week will be the Old Town Taipei Free Tour. This free tour will take approximately 2.5 – 3.0 hours and the tour guide will bring you to visit popular sites such as The Presidential Office and hidden alley of the city that most tourist will not know. This tour is also sponsored by the Department of Information and Tourism, Taipei City Government, which means that the country tourism board must have loved their tours and efforts too!
Other than that, their next popular tour will be the Taipei Pub Crawl, which includes four drinks that represent best of the Taiwanese history and culture. If you book the tour in advance, you will only pay 700 TWD instead of the usual price 800 TWD (this is definitely a good deal for all party goers and nightlife folks!). Why we recommend them? Other than offering a comprehensive range of free tours, TourMeAway also offer private tours at an affordable rate. With their friendly and insightful guides, you will be intrigued with how the tour is conducted. Also, when you're on a tour, chances of meeting new faces are high and you will never know that you will be able to meet a new travelling buddy too!
