For those who are curious, I have personally taken the taxis of the following drivers listed before, and found their prices reasonable, and of course courteous service. Do note that not all of them are English speaking, and for those who can speak English, their language skills is not native. 

Disclaimer: I do not receive any form of compensation, commissions or discounts for promoting the services of these taxi drivers. More information in my Taichung Taxi Recommendation blog post.

(note: I have removed A-bin a.k.a. luckybinge who was recommended in a lot of forums. He was supposed to fetch my hubby and myself in 2012, but ended up sending his brother in the last minute. And his brother was not very familiar with the routes to our destinations which we provided to A-bin in advance. Then in 2013, we arranged for another full-day tour with A-bin. This time, he did not appeared at all - I was so embarrassed as we had 2 other friends with me! Luckily we managed to get another taxi from the streets that was ok for a full-day tour)

Taipei Taxi Fare

If you are considering a full-day tour (8 hours), the usual rate is TWD 3500 to 4000. Some of the drivers are ok to throw in a few hours, but some may charge the extra hours. So do check with them
