Our guide Neil Wade was extremely professional and provided thorough advice before we arrived in Taiwan and before & throughout the hike. He constantly looked out for us and brought us up timely to catch sunrise at the peak plus he took lots of great shots for our troupe. A hike is never done till everyone is safely back and thanks to Neil/Taiwan Adventures for organizing everything we could focus on the hike and had a great time. Highly recommended

Taiwan Adventures is considered premium, especially for Asian traveler. During the trip, it is proven the premium price is well worth it.

We had Mr. Neil Wade as our guide. He was multitasking as our driver driving us from Taipei and back; guide; cook in preparing breakfast; portal; and photographer. He gave us proper briefing and the timing he set was perfect, we managed to reach the main peak of Yushan about 10 minutes before the spectacular sunrise. He also ensured everyone came down safely and carried some load from the weakest member. Neil also bought us lunch before heading back to Taipei.

I must say I am impressed by what Neil did during the hike and his service is highly recommended.

We booked some days hiking with Taiwan Adventures. Their pre-departure info was excellent. Sadly, a typhoon developed on our planned day 1. However TA did a brilliant job - the moment the weather forecast changed, they got in touch and had suggestions for alternatives. Instead of a 3 day trek we did 2 beautiful and challenging day hikes, and had a night in Jiufen. Huangdidian hike was spectacular, with brilliant ridges, ropes and ladders. Teapot was beautiful by the coast. Both days we had little extra side trips. Neil was the perfect guide. I totally recommend TA based on their local knowledge, experience, approach to safety, flexibility and agility in case of bad weather, and great guides.

Can not recommend these guys enough. We had some bad luck with the weather and Neil our guide was super quick to come up with a bunch of alternative plans that were all excellent. Neil was super knowledgeable , took us out for great dinners and always had safety at the forefront. Also he takes excellent photos !!!!!
