Lily was our guide for this tour and she was fantastic, very flexible as we had our toddler with us and she took us to see some interesting locations around inner Shanghai. Sunny was also great and was in touch with me well in advance to organise the tour. Very happy and would recommend this tour to anyone.

How do you discover Shanghai, a city of 25 million people in one day? Of course, it is impossible, it would take several weeks to do so, therefore I did the next best thing. To utilize most effectively the available time, I hired a private guide, which included a taxi driver. I booked this Private Full-Day tour with Sunny Flower Tours Shanghai. I met with Sunny at my hotel at 9 am and the driver took as first to the Shanghai Old Town Nanshi, before the crowds come in.

Sunny is a wonderful guide, a true professional she has extensive knowledge of Shanghai and surrounding area, and Chinese history in general. She has a bachelors degree in English, speaks fluent English and has great communication skills. She is a National licensed tour guide, but she is also business interpreter. She came on time and has an upbeat personality which makes her fun to travel with. She showed me the best parts of the cities, its culture, history and even the sounds that the cities have to offer. We were like two best friends roaming the city, and the taxi driver would always show up after a call from Sunny within 3 minutes to drive us to yet another destination.

Sunny is very flexible and adapts well to special requests, which made my tour in Shanghai a very pleasant experience, where we could tour the City at my pace and to my liking, spending as much time as I wonted in some places, or just zip through in the others. Thank you Sunny for this extraordinary experience touring Shanghai I just wish we had few more days to see some more.

Thank you Sunny for a well informed and interactive tour. My sister and I took this tour and thoroughly enjoyed not only seeing different parts of the city but the thoughtful discussion, on a variety of topics which made the tour more interesting. Sunny was prompt and thoughtful. Highly recommend!

I went to Shanghai by myself and Sunny Tour still treat me good with the guide. I was guided by Aaron. In just half day, I know every highlight place must be visited in Shanghai. Aaron was so informatif dan helpful. I’ll surely recomend Sunny Tour to my relatives who want to visit Shanghai.

Comprehensive and complete tour of shanghai! If you only have one day to see Shanghai, this is the best tour to take. We got to see all the modernity that Shanghai has to offer coupled with the historical sights. The tour was very flexible and our 4 year old did not even get cranky. Our guide Lily was very good. She acted like a friend who told us Shanghai's history as she took us around the city. No boring moments at all, she made learning all about Shanghai fun. The visit to the old city and temple is a must! The view of the Bund is also amazing. Thank you Lily for the Tour!

I took this tour alone while traveling on business and Lily was my guide. I would highly recommend. She was extremely knowledgable providing insight on history of locations, as well as interesting information of what people do in these spaces on a day to day basis. There is no way I would have gotten as much out of traveling around the city if I did it alone.

I did the recommended highlights and also requested to see the Poster Propaganda museum which was a very short but sweet stop. Highly recommend to get some recent history on china. Yue Garden YuYuan was absolutely beautiful. Visiting people's square on the weekend to see parents trying to set up their kids on blind dates was very cute. Tour contains older parts of the city which is where the history and spirit of the city really come out.

Lily was very knowledgable, personable, and accommodating. Overall I would highly recommend this tour!

I had an excellent experience on this tour. My tour guide was Lily and she was great! I was by myself so I thought it might be a bit awkward to be alone with the the tour guide, but it was not awkward at all and I was able to see a lot more with Lily as a guide than I would have been able to see on my own. Lily was very flexible and customized the tour to my interests. I was able to see the highlights of Shanghai in the short time that I had. I was able to see the French Concession, the Jade Buddha Temple, Nanjing Road, Old Town, Yuyuan Garden, Shanghai Tower, and have an excellent lunch at a local restaurant all in one day. I enjoyed all of the sights, but I especially liked Yuyuan Garden and the view from the observation deck at the Shanghai Tower. We got around with a combination of taxis, car services, and the subway so it was very convenient. I would highly recommend this tour and Lily as a tour guide.

Chris was absolutely fantastic - from start to finsh, with the help of her professional driver, we zoomed around the city seeing as much as we could see in one day. The Chinese style lunch was superb and i thoroughly recommend anyone who has a very short space of time in Shanghai to use this service, especially if you're lucky enough to have Chris taking you around.

After having a private tour of Shanghai with Lily, I don't think I'd explore a city any other way. I was visiting Shanghai with 2 of my co-workers. This was our first visit and only had the weekend to explore the city. Lily was amazing! We visited Jade Buddha Temple, Old Town and the gardens, Tianzifang, and many other locations. Lily had such deep knowledge about the city and the culture. We could not have squeezed so many sites into just a couple hours without Lily's guidance and expertise. On top of that, Lily is one of the most friendly, gracious, and happy people I have ever met. She was a joy to spend the day with. I highly recommend taking this tour- I'd suggest requesting Lily too :

Great day touring Shanghai with our wonderful guide Lily! My parents were in Shanghai for the first time and had just one full day to get a sense of the city and its highlights. The tour was ideal as we were able to customize exactly what was more relevant to us and there was a lot of flexibility as we had our own private driver. Our guide Lily spoke great English and was very knowledgeable and friendly. Always smiling, which made the 8 hours go by very quickly! Importantly, she was very flexible as we continued to make changes throughout the day my mom did a little extra shopping at French concession we decided to do an impromptu tea ceremony at Yu Garden etc. We also had an enjoyable lunch at a local Chinese restaurant awesome beef noodle! which was included in the price. We went to a number of places and the driver was either waiting or 2-3 min away from wherever we decided to move on to the next place which was quite convenient. Overall, highly recommend!

The tour was with Lily Sunny Tours Shanghai and she was fantastic. It was 5 people and she was very flexible on scheduling. We went to Fuxing Park to start and were able to get a glimpse of local life when you retire. It was so peaceful to watch people freely dancing and singing and being a part of a community. We then explored Old Shanghai that included a tea ceremony, shopping for pearls and a tour of Yu Garden. It was incredible to see the contrast of old and new. After this we went to lunch where Lily explained the foods and how to properly eat a soup dumpling, yummy! Lastly, we went to the Jade Buddha Temple that was beautiful. My colleagues that were with me were so grateful that I had scheduled this tour. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

First of all I have to congratulate our guide, Sunny, she was attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible, and her level of English was excellent, the perfect guide!.
I booked the tour for the three of us, my two sons and I, and I am so happy I did it, I couldn't recommend it enough. We asked Sunny if we could take the metro and she showed us how to travel in the so efficient and clean transportation system of Shanghai, we saw a museum in our way that I was very interested in Chiang Kai-shek Mansion and she adapted the tour to our wishes always.
This city tour is a must if you want to have an idea of all that Shanghai has to offer, how to get to places in the most efficient way with metro, one of the best in the world by the way, I assure you as I live in NY where you cant compare this service, where to find fancy restaurants, historical streets and areas, I great way to see the whole city.
I would definitely recommend this tour, even when it was a very hot day, our guide took care of our confort and took us to shaded places or indoor places when possible, but the hot on this tour didn't bother me at all. We saw so many of the city the as was in the brochure and much more! Food was also very good, Chinese casual dinning but delicious!

We had a wonderful day in Shanghai with Aron, who spoke beautiful English and who obviously had a real affection and great knowledge of this city. We visited the French concession the Jade Buddha Museum a great dim sum lunch, and many other attractions before ending up at Old Shanghai, which was just charming. We would thoroughly recommend Aron and Viatour - all the arrangements worked perfectly and we were so happy with the entire experience.

Our tour guide was Lily. She met us in my hotel lobby, promptly at 9:00am. She was warm and friendly, charming, beautiful with a wonderful sense of humor. We instantly liked her. She spent a few minutes about how the day was planned, and off we went!

We had a private car which was professionally driven and very comfortable. We were off and we really had a wonderful day with Lily. I highly recommend this tour. We saw all the parts of Shanghai you should see if this is your first visit to Shanghai.

If you, like me, like to get a sense of a city, hate boring tour guides who drone on with their well rehearsed monologues, making a tour feel like a chore, then this tour is for you. Lily was very knowledgeable, her english was perect and she answered every question we asked fully, intelligently and with such enthusiasm. 
A 8 hour private tour sounds daunting, but the day flew past so fast!
You can read for yourself all the spots we saw. Lily will not take you to those you tourist trap and #34;factories and #34; or and #34; museum and #34; we controlled what we wanted to see and the time we spent at each location, Lily even helped us bargin at the stores, and even showed her my bargaining technique which she laughed at. All this and she was our personal photographer!
We had lunch at a local restaurant where we feasted on some great dumplings and pork!
We saw all the major sites, were treated like kings and I can confidently recommended this tour for you in Shanghai.
Take it from this picky traveler you will not be disappointed with Lily . 5 stars all the way!
Oh, if you are lucky you may find Lilys Mom some weekends, at the peoples marriage park advertising that Lily is single and ready for marriage! ;) and #34;
