Who are you anyways?
Collectively, our team consists of Expats, Locals, and Foreigners (or what we like to refer to ourselves as, ELFs)!
Together, we have hiked hundreds of Taiwan's tallest mountains and biked thousands of kilometers along Taiwan's cycling paths.
We come from all different backgrounds, love travelling around the world, and enjoy introducing Taiwan to our wonderful guests.
So what makes us any different from everyone else? Taiwan is full of large, established tour companies, and home to many local 'English-speaking' tour guides. When we ask our guests why they wanted to work with us, most people have very similar answers.
"Those other guides are either not really 'English-speaking', or not really a local."
