Taiwan Trip – Driver Cum Tour Guide (Orange Lai)


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.

If you are interested to hire his service, you can either contact him via email, Facebook, SMS or whatsapp. His details are as follows:

  2. I also have a very good driver to recommend.

    We contacted Chiang tour guy (reccomended online) but he was not available so he sent his friend. 许先生 turned out to be a great help and driver. He was our driver but also a outstanding tour guide who constantly made sure we would enjoy the places we were going & that we got the best local food & deals. Highly recommended driver if you are travelling around Taiwan!!!!!! We traveled a family of four. My mum, my brother, my sis & I.

    许先生 is a driver under Chiang Tour Group & contactable via chiangtourguy@yahoo.com.tw 🙂

    $900 plus for 4 days, including sending us back to Taipei from Taichung on the last day. Fully packed itinerary, I enjoyed my trip!

  3. Hi, does your driver speak English? Thanks

    • Hi… We communicated in Chinese. I don’t think he speaks English… You can try to contact Tiffany if you need an English-speaking guide.
