Day 10 – July 16th, 2012
Mr Orange Lai (our driver cum tour guide for Day 10) was recommended to us by a friend who engaged his service sometime in March this year. We booked Orange for a one-day tour of Yehliu – Jioufen – Jinguashi Gold Ecological Park – Golden Waterfall – Ying Yang Sea – Shifen (Day 10) and also for airport transfer the next day. He charged us NT$4000 for the tour and NT$1000 for airport transfer.
All three drivers that we engaged were excellent but Orange turned out to be our favourite. We found him very kind and affable (i.e. friendly, good natured and easy to talk to), informative and down-to-earth. When we were shopping at Jioufen, he tagged along to point out the attractions and even went the extra mile by offering to carry our purchases for us. We felt at ease in his presence, largely due to his sincerity and also the fact that he seemed to enjoy his job. He reminded me of Kiate’s father. My family and I were very pleased with his service. When we offered to tip him for his excellent service, he politely declined.
