Sunny was an absolute delight. She was so friendly and knowledgeable- we would highly recommend taking any tour you can with Sunny!
Having this tour was the best decision that we made in our trip to China. The entire process was very pleasant, since the first contact with Sunny, that gave us some valuable information to prepare us for the tour, to the whole day that we spent with Lily. Suzhou's Humble Administrators garden is our favorite part but having Lily's inputs on the cultural background, having the opportunity to learn from her about China, Chinese community is by far the most enriched experience that we brought home. Also, the local restaurant was amazing, we had the best meal in the entire trip and, as a bonus, Lily also explained how to use the subway, which was very helpful on our remaining days in Shanghai. My husband and I not only recommend you to do this tour but also that you do it at the beginning of your trip, it'll make a huge difference on your understanding of the things that you see.
On our third trip to China for business, my husband and I booked a day trip to Suzhou before our tradeshow and looked forward to experiencing a fun day. We were NOT disappointed! Our guide, Lily, was phenomenal! This well educated young lady was humourous, energetic + personable. Highly recommended!
I really enjoyed many aspects of the tour and I highly recommend it . Our tour guide Lily was terrific she had a great sense of fun and humor and was very knowledgable. She met us at the hotel and we drove to train station. She picked up tickets we didn't really do anything it was all quite hassle free. Train was amazing clean timely and fast. We first went to the garden in Suzhou, perhaps the most lovely garden that I have seen. Very classic with large bonsai garden. Next we went to silk factory and I was prepared for the tourist oversell push but wasn't really that way at all , it is a smaller more traditional factory and therefore not too commercial. We also had a great vegetarian meal perhaps one of the best I have ever had . Beautiful preparation. We also took ride back through the canals through the back into town to board the train. Very nice day filled with way to see the quiet areas around Shanghai where the locals go. We were very pleased with the tour and our tour guide. While I feel very safe in China it can be overwhelming when you are not accompanied with a someone who speaks Chinese especially as mass transport areas. Lilly our guide was just a wonderful guide and very attentive .
We had a private trip to Suzhou on the 26th Oct and it was fantastic. The professionalism of the guide Lily was excellent from contacting us the day before to clarify what time we would be picked up at hotel .... I can honestly say that for all the trips I have done whilst abroad this was the best - and this was down to Lily - she was so well organised ... Her English is excellent with a good sense of humour .... Her knowledge on the area gave us an excellent insight into Suzhou ... Our lunch was excellent thanks to lily taking her time to find out our likes and dislikes with the food .... She explained everything along the way .... I would highly recommend this trip and on any future trips we do on return to Shanghai .... We will ask for Lily .... She made our trip and our day ..... Many happy memories... Please pass on our thanks to Lily ... Thankyou
This trip was great and our tour guide, Sunny, was excellent! We particularly loved the Humble Administrator's Garden and the tour of a working silk factory. The boat trip down the canal to see the old water city houses was peaceful and fascinating. Very worthwhile day spent in Suzhou.
My guide was Lily. She planned the trip in great detail. We took a train, and in the Suzhou Lily very efficiently organized taxi transport, flexibly adjusting to the plan of the trip. Lily knew a lot about the places we visited, and talked a lot about Chinese customs and traditions. Lily invited me to a local restaurant and I had the opportunity to try local delicacies. I highly recommend this type of tour of the Shanghai area.
This tour was a really great day trip out of Shanghai! Sunny was a fantastic guide; very organized, knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks you so much for a day well-spent!
I would highly recommend Sunny Tours for a private tourwith just me so it was only 1 person. My full day out to Suzhou with my guide Annie was wonderful even with the less than perfect weather in Shanghai. We toured through the gardens, changed it up a bit at my request to go to Tiger Hill which was great, had a fun lunch but I think the best part was just talking to Annie and learning more about living in Shanghai and her experiences. Also, as a woman traveling for business, I really wanted to have another woman as a tour guide. The whole experience from being picked up at the hotel, train ride, etc was very smooth and just a great way to end a business trip.
It's simple: Do not think, just book this tour you won't regret it. We visited very beautiful places in the garden even with some nice lotus flowers and had a very nice meal. So it was a perfect experience in which I also could learn very much about the Chinese society and public transportation system. And one word for her organisational talent: It was incredible how smoothly she all the transportation and visits handled.
Sunny is a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. She kindly greeted my group of six at our hotel lobby and escorted us to our private van for the tour. Along the way to Suzhou she informed us of many cool Shanghai facts. Sunny was a lovely guide and I highly recommend her tour service!! Thank you!
We had a great day with Sunny! She was an excellent guide, helped us even to get our tickets for our trip the next day to Beijing. Her English was great and we enjoyed her company very much. We went to the Humble Administrators Garden, the city of Suzhou, had a great lunch, a boat ride on the canal and a tour of the silk factory. Everything was very interesting and we had a fantastic day. We certainly wouldn't have been able to do this on our own, so we were so glad to have booked the tour. Cheers to Sunny. If we are in Shanghai again, we will definitely book another tour with her!
My coworker and I booked this tour after a long work week in Shanghai and it was the perfect way to see beautiful sights and more historic areas. Sunny was an absolute pleasure and went out of her way to ensure we had an enjoyable time. She customized our itinerary based on our feedback and was flexible with timing when we took ages taking photos : We always felt very well taken care of, and it was comforting having a native speaker ensure we ordered food well, we weren't missing anything and we had a great time. Sunny's English is perfect and she really just felt like another girlfriend hanging out with us for the day! Thanks for such a memorable experience!!
Sunny guided us to, from and around Suzhou, the canals, old streets and the Silk Factory exactly as requested, with great panache and joie de vivre. Her bright personality, excellent English and her genuine interest in meeting our needs made for a very enjoyable day. Lunch was amazing, and in a location not even evident to the tourist hordes, so we really appreciated the whole experience. Thank you Sunny, we hope you had a good day off before your next tour to Hangzhou. Highly recommended.
I highly recommend using this service. Our tour guide for the day was Lily. Suzhou was a fun, but I don't think we would have enjoyed it half as much without Lily. She took the time to make sure everything was to our liking and she was flexible about our schedule. We had a great time!
Sunny is an outstanding guide. She put together an outstanding day trip for us. Highlights included bullet train ride from Shanghai to Suzhou and back, seeing many cultural sites and a great lunch in the city. Drivers and cars both in Shanghai and Suzhou were first rate. Overall, we had a very pleasant and memorable day. Highly recommended. When I return to Shanghai or Suzhou, I will hire Sunny again.

This was our second private tour with Sunny, and we were so happy when we realised she would be our guide. Sunny is a qualified English teacher so is perfect in English, and extrememly knowledgeable about China, Shanghai and Suzhou.
The fast train was fun.....up to 280kms per hour...only 30 minutes to get from Shanghai to Suzhou! The city is really beautiful, so much history and so many original well cared for Chinese suburbs. We had a fantastic canal cruise, walked through a beautiful famous Chinese garden, one of the best known in China and a fabulous local restaurant lunch in a new area by the huge 16kms around manmade lake....this was another great photo opportunity.
We had a few days in Shanghai after a 22 night cruise with many ports and tours....we had 2 tours with Sunny in Shanghai,and these were by far the best tours we had on this holiday!
All in all, it was a fabulous day. Thanks for everything, Sunny. :-
Had a great trip to Suzhou from Shanghai with an awesome guide Lily. Will cherish the memories of fun in the rain for a long time!
Lily is a very knowledgeable guide. She looked after me very well throughout the trip. As well as having a great day out, I learned a lot about Chinese culture and life. This is a great trip if you want to see the different sides of this part of China in one day.
My Wife Judith and I went on a Private day trip to Suzhou via a fast train from Shanghai and it was a fantastic experience, our tour guide Miss Sunny Zhang really new her business and was very easy to understand, her English was clear which we both enjoyed, never been on a fast train before which is an experience on it own, Sunny was never in a hurry like some tours we have been on so we had time to see everything and get photo's hence we give her a five 5 star rating. we would use her again next time we are in Shanghai.
Sunny is a great guide, and although the weather was really bad and rained the whole day, I really enjoyed the tour and her company! Very knowledgeable and really really nice!
We enjoyed this trip to Suzhou. Sunny was a great guide, very helpful and friendly. Thanks
This was a very good trip.
Everything ran like clockwork and our tour guide, Sunny was very efficient and accommodating.
Had a very good day tour. Our guide was Lilly, she spoke very good english, extremely polite and helpful and took all efforts to
make our trip a memorable one.The gardens at Suzhou were wonderful as was the boatride. Everything was good, although the price is
a bit high.
