Experience Taroko Gorge The Island Life Way!
Forget the big buses, and join Island Life Taiwan as we hit the trails, taste handmade Truku aboriginal cuisine, check out some amazing temples, cross suspension bridges and more.
Not only is a full ABORIGINAL LUNCH INCLUDED, but we also include other special experiences throughout the day intended to immerse you in the beauty and culture of Taroko Gorge. We’ll spend as little time in the vehicle as possible, our groups never get bigger than 8 people, all our guides speak English and your lunch and Hualien City hotel pick up is always included!
The tour lasted over 10 hours starting at 8 and finishing at 6! Alan the tour guide was great and very passionate about his home land as well as the tribal culture that he taught us lots about. Definitely worth the money and would recommend to friends and family.
We had a wonderful time visiting Taroko with Allen as our tour guide! He was extremely friendly and fun to talk to and was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Since everyone in our group had extra time at the end of they day, Allen was generous enough to bring us to a few extra locations near the gorge. We ended up doing so much that I can’t even keep track of it all, but the parts that stood out the most included the suspension bridge on the way to the bell tower and the Tunnel of Nine Turns Area. Overall, I would 10/10 recommend this tour!
Incredible! I had no idea how stunning Taroko is. The Island Life tour guides are so proud of it and really showed it off! What an amazing day. We can’t wait to go back! Take the tour, you’ll regret it if you don’t.
No other words than Fantastic and Outstanding day with Alan our very knowledgeable guide who made the day very special thanks to his great knowledge of the gorges, his excellent english and most importantly his humour. We had so much fun discovering the wonders of Mother Nature, very well organized tour, will do it again without any hesitation. Great job to Alan and to Islandlife taiwan.
Amazing tour with Alan! We saw so much of the park it felt like the most comprehensive tour we’ve been on. Several places they drop you at one end for a scenic walk and then pick you up at the other end, something you couldn’t do if travelling on your own. The nature of Taroko is incredible and overall this was one of our best experiences in Taiwan.
Great Taroko tour with Allen. I took a private tour of the Taroko park and gorge from island life adventures. They were very quick to respond to my inquiry and we conducted all details on what’s app but they also took calls . Allen was our local guide and he was fantastic. Great English and provided a very personal experience since he grew up in the area visiting the park regularly with his grandmother. You get a great history of the area, the country, and the people and culture. A nice local meal at the top of the mountain , a swim in the gorge , everything was well done and very well managed . Thanks Allen for a great time I will not forget .
This was a fantastic experience in my two night stay in Hualien, all thanks to Allen, our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and had a lot of insight to share about the area; his English is fantastic and so were all of his jokes. The van was comfortable and well kept, and he gave us plenty of time to explore each site – I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore the Taroko Gorge.
Loads in one day with great guide
Great friendly guide who spoke good English and was super knowledgeable about the area, shared loads of interesting stuff about Taiwan. The tour itself covered WAY more than we could have done with public transport, so all in all really excellent!
Memorable and exciting tour!
A family of 4 joined the Taroko Gorge tour. We were very well taken care of by Allen the guide. He was knowledgeable and throughout the trip, managed the time very well so that we covered many areas for this trip. Allen also took us to the best scenic spots and took some amazing photos for us too! Our trip to Hualien was made so much more interesting and memorable with this tour. Thank you Allen!
If I could give this tour more than 5 stars, I would! Even with some rainy weather, this was by far the best tour I’ve ever been on!
I contacted Island Life Taiwan via email a week or two before planning on being in Hualien to arrange a tour and they were very swift to reply. Everything from the pre-tour planning to the tour itself was extremely well managed and I was very satisfied with the customer service.
Our guide, Iris, was very welcoming and happy to accommodate us in any way possible. We definitely benefitted from her local knowledge and were not only able to enjoy the amazing scenery around Taroko, but also learn more about the culture that surrounds it. She even helped me with the application process for the Zhuilu Old Trail permit and took all the pictures a tourist could dream of.
This was such a phenomenal place to visit, and the tour more than did it justice!
Thanks so much – I would recommend this tour to absolutely everyone who wants to visit Taiwan!!
Best Taroko Gorge Tour
The whole tour was excellent. Every experience was 10/10. Food, scenery, guide every thing was just fantastic. The guide spoke great English which made life easy.
Better Life with Island Life Taiwan
Taroko National Park is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, exploring with Alan was a very pleasant trip. One of my favorite locations was the Qingshui Cliffs which Alan brought us to. We left early to avoid the crowds which gave us a very good experience.
Went on a Taroko gorge tour with IRIS on the 5th of January 2020. She picked us up from our accommodation at 7.30 am and there was only 6 of us on the tour which was fantastic. She took us to all the major sites on the tour before lunch which was great as there were no crowds or waiting time anywhere. We drove past the places after lunch and saw heaps of people lining up at the places we had been. IRIS had a great understanding of all the places we visited and you could see her love for her country. Her English was outstanding and would recommend highly this tour to do. 10/10 !!!
Better Taroko Tour with Santa.We had a wonderful tour with Santa as guide! While driving he told us lots of stories. He is a funny guy who made everyone laugh during the whole day. His English was good and he gave clear information. We were ahead of all the tour buses which was great! It was like we almost had Taroko to ourselves 🙂 Thanks!
Taroko Gorge tour and lunch. Had a great day touring Taroko Gorge. Allen picked us up at our apartment, in total there were 7 people in our van. It was a comfortable ride and Allen used the time well so that we were able to see several different sights. He also explained a lot about Taiwan’s history, as well as plant and animal life. Lunch was a traditional meal and good. We never felt rushed, but things moved along at a good pace. Beautiful area, well worth seeing if you are in Hualien. Pickup was about 7:30am and we returned about 3:30 or 4 pm.
Great Taroko Experience. Superb Taroko experience, Allen was a great guide, a lot of information about local life and Taroko aboriginal tribe. Very comfortable van with AC, more than enough dinner included in the price of trip. Highly recommended tour agency in Hualien.
