        This trip is my most memorable trip. Execellent servives from our guides and bus driver who pay attention to detail and make sure all the guests were comfortable. At the hotels, restaurants, and sigh seeings we received five star treatments. I enjoyed the open air hot springs.

        This tour was infused with variety such as nature, location, different transportations, local foods, and hands on experiences. Every day was excellent day. I would like to go back to Taiwan again.

        Supera Tours is trully Superb!!! This is our third tour with them and our current Taiwan tour of east and west coasts has been filled with excellent sight seeing, meals and hospitality.

        Our tour guides Tom and Anita are very knowledgeable and accommodating to our tours individual needs. Kudos to them for sharing their homeland with us. They have treated us like family throughout the tour.

        A wonderfully well organised tour with a great selection of sights, food and accomodation. A beautiful country to visit with friendly locals. Our guide Amanda was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating and made our trip memorable.

        We were happy that we chose the 9 day option and would recommend this to others. The hotels were superb as were the meals that were chosen for us. We hardly spent any money at all as everything was supplied for us. We are usually independent travellers but feel that Tiawan would be difficult to manage on our own. Having gone on this tour we feel that we have really seen a very varied and interesting side of this country. Our guide was extremely well informed, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. She really made our trip.

        Wonderful carefree vacation for both my husband and I, everything was well organized and taken care of, we are extremely happy with our food, accommodations and transportation. Our guide Amanda is the best guide anyone can ever wish for, her great sense of humour kept us well entertained, and she truly cared for all of our well being throughout our trip. Thanks!

        We just returned from a 10-day trip on the East- and West- Coast of Taiwan with Super Value Tours and we loved it! The accommodations were great and the food was simply fantastic...The tour director, Andrew, was one of the best we ever had and we have traveled frequently! We very much enjoyed this experience and will definitely do another tour with Super Value soon.

        My wife and I took the 10-day Taiwan Island Super Value Tour in early December, 2017. At first, we were a little skeptical because the itinerary was a little confusing.  However, all concerns were dismissed by the first day of the tour. Super Value Tours, did not adequately promote the fact that all hotels are 5 star and that all meals on the tour are provided at excellent and diverse restaurants. However, what really made the tour a standout was the tour guide, Salome Le. This 26 year old tour guide possesses excellent people skills and is extremely knowledgeable. She is fluent in 4 languages and was an endless source of knowledge about Taiwan. Moreover, her concern and attention to details made the tour run flawlessly. The very few questions that she couldn't answer right away were researched that night and answered the next day. The name of this company, Super Value Tours, Inc. may first appear to be marketing gimmick name, but we found out that this tour group really represents super value in every respect.
