Discover some of the unique benefits of choosing to travel with Cox & Kings...
A Taiwan tour, booked on a private basis, is perfect for those travellers who appreciate freedom and flexibility on their holiday. While Cox & Kings has created a suggested itinerary, built by experts, this can be amended to any traveller’s requirements.
Alternatively, if you would like to design your own itinerary from scratch, in conjunction with a Far East expert, please get in touch.
Private itineraries can be booked using either public transport or private transfers. This is because of the very high costs of private guides and vehicles.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
