Just completed our 9 persons 9 days trip to Taiwan with Topology. Peter, our trip planner is very helpful. We had a last minute request to add on an additional room the day before we flew, and he had everything settled by the time we touched down in Taipei. The hotels recommendation were good and suitable for our big family with young children. Joanna our tour guide took very good care of us throughout the trip. She knew that the elderly doesn’t like western food but the younger ones love it. She managed to find a restaurant that has a play area for the young kids, good Italian food for the parents and a hotpot for the elderly grandmother. A lot of thought went into catering to the diverse needs of the group. It’s truly a trip at our own pace, catered to our tastes and preferences. Thank you Peter, Joanna, and Topology! We’ll be back to explore other parts of Taiwan again with Topology!

Our 4th trip to Taiwan and 3rd time with Topology. 1st time was with an agency from our home country but we have not looked back since we started with Topology in 2016. Sincere personalised service is what we have been getting everytime. Core, our tour coordinator is always patient, responsive and pleasant. She planned our trip well... Addressing concerns of the elderly and the young and ensuring their needs were addressed. It's also our 3rd trip with our guide Taddy who is always charming, caring and thoughtful. He knows where to get the best value most delicious food in Taiwan! Taddy took special care of our elderly parents... he's always got a way to ensure that their ability to appreciate the locations we visit is not compromised by their inability to walk far. With Taddy always feel so welcome like visiting family. Great job Topology!

Our group of 10 had a wide range of people from ages 1 to 77 with different interests and needs from physical to dietary. Clint took care of everything and paid close attention to each family member (from finding a sandwich to locating a bike route) so that we could really enjoy being together and exploring Taiwan. The itinerary took us to hidden spots in Taiwan from a mystical bamboo forest where we tasted tea to a night tour of an ecological preserve. And Clint took amazing photos throughout our trip so that we have a lifetime of memories to treasure. We highly recommend Clint and Topology to everyone and look forward to traveling with them again in the future!

The 2 days tour began with our guide, Mr. Logan Chen, picked us up at our hotel on time. He was well prepared, courteous, very friendly, and welcoming. The car was clean, well stocked with mineral water, and comfortable. The way he drove was safe and comfortable that my boys were able to fall asleep on the way to Shifen and Jiufen. As we requested to be in Jiufen until night, Logan suggested we visit the Shifen waterfall first. So we did and we had fun. Then to Shifen we went. Had lunch at a restaurant recommended by Logan. It was a very good lunch. The restaurant was nice and unique and the food was delicious. Then up next was the flying lantern at Shifen. We got a good place to write our wishes and fly them up. Then up next was the golden waterfall which was simply breathtaking. From there we went to jiufen and stayed there till nightfall. Logan had a very good knowledge of the place. He recommended lots of food stops in Shifen and Jiufen. All were very delicious. We will surely use topology services again the next time we are in Taiwan.
