          Hop-on and hop-off, the landmark tour!
          The views were amazing! I took so many photos and so many amazing memories and views which will leave a print in my heart. Sunny Tours made my trip smooth and easy! They provided top-notch service- not only replying to my speedy requests, but also providing me with ideas and constantly checking if I needed further assistance. This is, by far, the best tour that I've been on. It was quick, easy, efficient, and accessible. I highly recommend Sunny Tours!

          SUNNY TOURS
          Tongli is a beautiful old town. It was well explained on all the attractions. Lulu has good knowledge on Suzhou and recommended many Suzhou local produce. We visited hangshang temple as we have some time left. Overall good experience and would recommend friends to book with Sunny Tours.

          Suzhou in a Day
          Lulu was amazing and made the trip interesting even for the teenagers. It was our first time in Suzhou and with only a day in the city we still managed to see the top sights and get a feel of the city in such a way that it enjoyable. That fact it was snowing just made it all the more memorable.

          Very Good Tour Experience
          My family and I had a tour with Sunny Journey Tours in which we had a flexible day trip around Suzhou and Zhouzhang Water Town. We set it up the night before using our WeChat app which made it very easy to coordinate with Sunny. The next morning, we were picked up at our hotel by a driver who was very courteous and patient. We met our tour guide, Lulu, at the first site who was helpful and informative about the sites around Suzhou and Zhouzhang Water Town. We recommend this tour operator and tour guide. Do not pass up the Humble Administrator's Garden which is a marvel. The only advice we would give when booking is to devise your own list of recommended sites to offer to the guide so that you and the guide can negotiate between what's on your bucket list and some of the less known historical or cultural sites in and around Suzhou. It's a flexible trip but it takes time to get around the city. That means you need to be clear about whether you are more interested in history and Suzhou cuisine or you also want to spend time engaging with local merchants.

          A lovely day tour in beautiful Suzhou
          It was a beautiful tour, taking in the canals, temples and gardens of old Suzhou on a lovely Autumn day. My guide, Lulu, was knowledgeable and charming as well as open and flexible. She hosted an excellent lunch, providing warm company. I can certainly recommend.

          Great tour!
          We had a great day with Lulu! We really liked Tongli water-town. So authentic! Suzhou garden is also really a must see. Great lunch as well (tip: do not order too much). If you stay at least 4 days in Shanghai, I recommend to book 1 day to Suzhou.

          Great tour
          Great sites to see, and a very attentive guide. A bit of pressure to buy things, but I'm a pushover on that type of thing.

          Thank you Sunny!
          Sunny was great - informative, friendly, flexible. She made us comfortable, shared a lot about all the places we visited, had lunch with us, etc. We booked this only the afternoon before, but Sunny was responsive in negotiating a place to meet, and on the start time. We also appreciated the flexibility at the end of the day, where she adjusted the itinerary so we would have less travel time back to our hotel. We are happy we did this! (2 adults and older teen)

          Amazing Watertown and
          Although this tour has no tour guide but the driver took us to the right place and gave us some recommendations about what to see and look for in each watertown that we visited. We were also given enough time to explore each Watertown. It was really a satisfying trip to both Watertown and definitely a memorable one.

          Perfect Tour of Suzhou & Zhouzhuang!
          I have an amazing day with Sunny as my guide! I started with the Master of the Nets Garden in Suzhou, a more tranquil experience compare to some of the other gardens. It was just perfect! Next stop was the silk factory where I got to see the whole process of producing silk. We stopped for lunch where I tried some Suzhou specials! And finished my day with a boat ride in Zhouzhaung - simply magical! Sunny is so knowledgeable and an absolute blast. She made my day meaningful and FUN. Thanks again, Sunny!!

          Highly customised tour
          Great explanation of the Suzhou history n attractions by Sophie. Don’t think I’ll appreciate that much of the Humble Administrator and Zhou Zhuang without the guide. Also, I like it as a private tour customised to our needs.

          Personalized tour of Suzhou was highlight of China Visit
          We were pleased to have an opportunity to tour Suzhou our own way. We had limited time and were very clear about what we wanted to see. Our guide set a course in which we had an opportunity to see all that we desired and in an optimal arrangement in terms of time of the day. We were at the Humble Administrators garden first and although it was crowded saw it in a very personal way. The history and context was exactly at the level we desired and as we are very interested in local handicrafts we had plenty time to find exactly what we wanted. Our guide never pressured us to buy anything anywhere and instead guided us if we were potentially missing better options. We ended up purchasing a teapot carved from a single block of stone, an embroidered cat screen (very fine work) that it seen on both sides and also some fans. At the end of the tour, we were at the canal at night. We finished with a quick visit to the new zone where we visited the elegant very modern lakefront. Our guide was thoughtful, unobtrusive and very knowledgable.
