awesome tour, a must do.
, Feb 2020
Rita was our tour guide and she was excellent. She was so knowledgable and catered the tour to us. We loved having our own car and they were so accommodating. We only had one day in the city but we felt like we saw everything and we learned so so much. I learned more in the hours spent with Rita than I had in all my research. Highly Highly recommend.
Tour of Shanghai

We had one day in shanghai to see the sites and spent it with Lily. She customized it to fit what we were interested in seeing and the weather (which wasn't great). This was a no rush tour - we had time to really enjoy the museum, gardens and the marketplaces. Overall, very nice day and would recommend to everyone.
Nice Tour

Our Guide, the lovely Freya, picked us up at our Hotel on time. She took us all over Shanghai to see the main sights. She willingly answered all our questions, although, I would have liked her to be more proactive and provide information on her own. Regardless, we tremendously enjoyed the day, and the delicious dumplings lunch. Thank You Freya and Sunny Tours!
Great Shanghai overview for family
, Nov 2019
This full day tour provided the perfect overview to Shanghai. We had limited time in the city and this tour gave us the highlights and allowed us get a feel for this beautiful, impressive city. We were traveling as a family of four (mom, three daughers ages 12, 8, and 4) and we all really enjoyed the day. Our tour guide, Lily, was fantastic! She was very friendly, knowledgable and very patient with the kids. The highlight of the tour was the amazing lunch Lily arranged (we booked the tour that included this option, and it did not disappoint!). The driver was also very courteous and the vehicle was clean and comfortable - for a reasonable cost the company provided round trip transportation from our Disneyland Hotel (which was outside the standard pick up Zoe). Overall I highly recommend this tour and Lily as tour guide!
Lily was amazing
, Nov 2019
Collecting us right on time Lily structured the day quickly to ensure we saw everything we wanted to but to avoid being held-up in the holiday traffic. The driver was amazingly good at being just a few minutes away whenever we were ready to move on. We learnt a lot about Shanghai & the Chinese way of life in the day we spent with Lily. As this was our first time in China this was a brilliant way to experience such a wonderful city & country. Thank you Sunny & Lily!!
Lilly was the best

Our tour guide, Angela, was very knowledgeable and took us to several touristy locations. We visited an observatory tower, silk factory, buddha temple and pearl jewelry store. Additionally, we ate at a delicious dumpling restaurant and visited a tea house that was connected to the pearl store. The merchants at most locations will strenuously try to sale their merchandise so be prepared with money or resolve not to participate. Lastly, I was with my mother who had mobility limitations that I shared at the time of the booking but the pearl store and tea house had a lot of stairs, I should have insisted on an alternative location because there are several alternatives
Great Way to See Shanghai

Feifei was our guide and made our tour of Shanghai a great success. She was very flexible and allowed us to spend more time on the things we wanted to see and added other attractions as time allowed. It was great having the car available all day to pick us up and carry us to the next stop in a seamless fashion. Well worth the money!
Fantastic full day tour.
, Oct 2019
We booked a private tour for three people. Our guide Rita picked us up at our hotel and we spent a whole day together. The itinerary was flexible and we were able to decide what we wanted to do as the day wore on. Rita had so much knowledge and was lots of fun. I could not think of one negative thing to say about Rita or the experience.

Lilly our tour guide was amazing and really made the tour. She was very knowledgeable and interesting to spend the day with touring the best parts of the old and new city. If you do this tour ask for Lilly.
