This area is so beautiful and a wonderful sight to see. I loved the seamless part of the travel and just enjoying sitting back without having to do all the legwork. I tend to do most of my own travel planning, but this tour was perfect to just sit back and enjoy. For me the train ride was a bit long, but if you only have a day to experience this area this tour works out perfectly. The scenery along the way is wonderful and the two different trains there and back had large windows to soak in the views while traveling to/from Hualien. I loved that the tour included stops along the route through the gorge for pictures and seeing the beauty of the gorge. The scenery was breathtaking and our tour guide the Lion Lady was great!
