I wanted to say how wonderful and friendly Annie was on our trip. The first thing she did was ask for our expectations on what we wanted to see. From there she gave a very personalized tour. She was knowledgeable and answered many questions. She was excellent to communicate with and so receptive to our requests. It was great practicing my Chinese with her she made it flow simply. The tour did a great job challenging me intellectually both in knowledge and culturally. This is a rare quality in a tour guide. Having been on many tours with Viator this was definitely one of the top tours I have been on. The driver was quick, present, and had a lovely luxury tour bus with excellent cleanliness.

I hope that Viator keeps using quality tour groups such as Sunny Tours for future bookings in China.

We travel a lot, but going to countries that don't use Latin writings always intimidates us. So when we planned to go out to Shanghai's surrounding cities, we tried to find private day trips with decent English guide. After browsing a lot of options, we chose this one! And luckily we got Sunny who got plenty of good reviews to guide us! Booking process is a breeze, she immediately contact us to lay out the plan, which is also customizable to our liking and time preference. Suzhou and Zhouzhuang was very nice, we asked for time where we can get sunset and also not so crowded in ZZ, and surely Sunny delivers. And we went back to Shanghai with a lot of story and knowledge about SZ, ZZ, and china. It was a very nice tour, Sunny's personality and knowledge surely is as bright as her name, you can throw her any question about china and she knows everything! And Her English is impeccable! After the tour it really hits us, what a disaster it will be if we tried to go by ourselves, lost in china's city with language barrier wasting time and mostly our peace in mind. Highly recommended!

We wanted to see more of Shanghai than just the city so we decided to take this tour. Sunny, our guide was wonderful and knowledgable. She greeted us on time and had a wonderful day planned. We spent the morning at the Humble Administrator's garden in Suzhou which was beautiful. Sunny made the place some alive with her expert explanations and sense of humour. We had a great lunch in Suzhou and then spend the afternoon in Tongli. Tongli was a refreshing surprise not crowded and less touristy than some of the other water towns. the gardens there were also beautiful. It was a full day and everything ran smoothly from beginning to end. Sunny was able to tailor the day to our interests and offered us various options to fill the day. She answered all our questions about culture and history, It was a highlight of our trip to China. I would highly recommend this tour and Sunny in particular

Sunny was fabulous! She made our day fun, and infused our time with valuable information as well as enjoyable activities at the gardens in Suzhou and beautiful water town of Tongli. She was also flexible and accommodated the needs of our group, which ranged in age from 9 to 65!

Fei Fei was our tour guide, and she was punctuate and accommodative. We had the flexibility in changing our tour itineraries. Fei Fei is fluent in English and efficient in presenting the history of the places. On that day was heavy down pour, but the rain did not dampen our spirits. We were so taken in by the beauty and uniqueness of these places. We as a group, thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would not hesitate to give our thumbs-up for the tour guide plus the tour.
