Absolutely excellent comfortable bullet train tour!! The 5 star hotel in Kaohsiung was amazing! It's a good experience to the natural side of Taiwan outside busy Taipei. Tour guide Billy is very knowledgeable and friendly. Very well organized trip by Edison Tour Company from Taipei. When arriving to Taipei, they even arranged their staff to greet us right at the platform then courteously took us back to our hotel.
