My family will be coming to Taiwan for a visit and I am currently choosing between Hualien and Alishan for a day tour. I have been to Hualien twice (once to do the usual day tour, and once to cycle along the coast) and thought that it might be a nice alternative to Alishan. There will be 7 of us in the group, no hotel/hostel yet, but we'll be there on either the 9th or 10th of June. How much will it cost us for the tour alone? how much if with accommodation?
We went on the Zhuilu and Taroko Gorge tour in a day and it cost us 1738NTD per person. We had 5 people in the van and it was just right. Not sure about 7 person - you could probably email and ask them? They are pretty accommodating in terms of schedule.
