Why Taxi? They are City Experts

In Taiwan, taxi drivers are those who know the cities the most. In other words, they are city experts. They are familiar with every road and back street. Since the taxi drivers are always on the road, they also know the best place to satisfy your appetite without starving your wallet!

Get in Touch With Locals

Joining a tour with the taxi driver, you can directly interact with the locals and experience the real Taipei.


Moreover, taxi is a very efficient way to travel. You can browse the whole city within a ride.

Go Deep into Taipei

Unlike other mass transportation, taxi is the only one that can go deeper into backstreet instead of main roads.

Please note that tips for your tour guide are NOT included.


Q: I don’t speak any Chinese. How should I communicate with the driver?
A: Don’t panic! Most of the taxi drivers can speak a little English. Also, body language and facial expression are other good ways to communicate as well.

Q: I am concerned about the safety issue. Will it be a problem?
A: Don’t worry at all. Unlike some other countries, taxis in Taiwan are very safe. Every taxi driver has their legal licenses put at the most obvious place in their taxis. Also, the taxi drivers are those who we are very familiar with. They are all friendly and kind.

Q: Which sights will I actually visit? Can I ask the driver to take me to some tourist sights?
A: The Taxi Diary is more like a city adventure, not a car rental tour. You will not know the next destination even when you're in the taxi! That's the highlight of this tour 🙂

Q: What should I do if local passengers find me in the taxi after hailing?
A: The driver will explain the project to them briefly. If you still don't know what to do, just say hello to them!

An unforgettable day trip with Topology
This is the first time I've booked the tour with Topology, the experience with them was fantastic! Penny who has communicated with me from beginning to the end, she is very responsive with all the questions I had or requested, and well informed about tour guide's info and pickup time. Fun time seems to pass by quickly, Spencer surely made our trip so memorable, we will always remember him and hopefully one day we will meet up again. =)

Amazing trip and amazing guide
It was a very interesting trip. We knew unique places and very beautiful views. I recommend it and thank our guide Mr. Clint Liang for his help and kindness. It was very important that he knew the area so well.
Excellent agency, wonderful tour guide
We were a family of 13 that did 2 private day tours and airport transfers with Topology. Peter was excellent with all communications from the beginning. Airy was a wonderful bilingual guide thar really made us feel at home. The kids in our group also warmed up to her quickly. The included lunches were sumptuous and extensive. They are a little pricey but well worth every penny.
Week in Taiwan
We had an amazing time in Taiwan! Allen from Topology was responsive throughout the planning stages. We have a child with many food allergies and requested an English-speaking guide to accompany us for the entire trip. We could not have been happier with Spencer! We spent 7 days with him touring Taipei, Jiufen, Yehliu National Park, Kaoshiung, and Kenting National Park. He kept that pace quick for the kids and most of our free time was spent exploring different markets sampling street food. Spencer kept my son safe during the entire trip, and by the end he was like a part of the family.
8 day private tour of Taiwan
Our 8 day private tour of Taiwan included Taipei, Jiufen, Shifen, Taroko, Sun Moon, & Taichung. Both our consultant, Vivi, & our driver, Henry, were excellent. We felt well taken care of from beginning to end. Henry was especially accommodating to our changing needs and requests. He was punctual, patient and attentive to our interests, even suggesting extra stops that may appeal to us & taking pictures for us. Despite some minor stomach issues at the first half of the trip (we were not able to eat some of the planned dinners), we still got to see many scenes & sites that surprised us: Taroko gorge was stunning; releasing sky lanterns was fun; the local wet market was lively; the oyster/clam digging area looked like a wet sand desert complete with a windy sand storm. Over all, everything went smoothly, and our group of 4 adults + 1 child, enjoyed our trip immensely. Thank you
