Had an amazing food tour by Lily in January. We had a private tour, also due to the fact that we wanted some privacy. We were on a super tight travel schedule So only had a small window in which we could do the tour.

We ended up having some delays at the airport, but that was absolutely no problem for Lily. She just waited until we arrived, and didn’t compensate on the quality of the tour.

Lily took us to the most amazing food places. Her knowledge of the food and the city is outstanding. She even took us to places on request because my artist really likes Dumplings, so we went to an extra restaurant.

After that she guided us on our request to a sky bar on the Bund, and dropped us off at the drop off point (maglev station). Where we went back straight to the airport.

Could definitely recommend a tour from sunny tours with Lily as a tour guide.

This was an incredible tour; it was a fantastic introduction to the Chinese culture. Without our fabulous tour guides Emma and Lily, we would never have got to visit the local food stalls and establishments they took us too. The ladies are clearly very proud and rightly so of their heritage and very happy to share this with us. They took us to local street food venders and restaurants. The food was incredible.
I have a few dietary requirements that I was a little concern about, but I really didn’t need to worry. I cannot put into words how much we enjoyed this experience; it really made our trip and we would highly recommend this to anyone who was visiting Shanghai.

This tour is suitable for families, couples and groups.

My wife and I had a great time with Lily. She was very informative and shared a lot of Shanghai history and cultural influence. The food choices were delicious, plentiful, and gave a nice flavourful introduction into Shanghai cuisine. Then to end the night with a cruise on the river viewing the the beautiful architecture and Shanghai lights was absolutely breathtaking. Definitely recommend this tour and will absolutely do it again.

My teenage son and I visited Shanghai recently and took Sunny's tour the same evening we arrived. Not only was it a great way to fight jet lag, the food we enjoyed was the best of our entire stay in China. Sunny took us to some wonderful spots, we were blessed with a lovely evening in Shanghai so once we had our fill of noodles, dumplings, duck and lamb, we literally waddled over to the river and enjoyed wonderful evening cruise. This is the perfect combination of exploring and relaxing and taking in the sights, sounds and flavors that makes Shanghai such a cosmopolitan and wonderful city to visit. Highly Recommended.

We were lucky to have Sunny herself as our guide. She took us all over for tasty bites and more. In addition to the delicious (and plentiful) food, we enjoyed our walk in parts of Shanghai we would not have reached by ourselves. We enjoyed watching the local merchants and various food stores as well as the local night life.
Afterwards, we took a taxi to the Bund for an evening cruise on the river. The views of the lighted buildings was breathtaking! At the end, Sunny was so kind to take us back to the hotel and even gave me a little souvenir. Thank You Sunny for a wonderful evening, you are the best!

What a great introduction to the Shanghai food scene. We did not want to go to touristy type restaurants but of course there is a language barrier if you want to go authentic on your own. This bridges the gap and we felt like we were out for the night with friends. There was just the two of us with Lily initially and then her colleague joined us. She is so knowledgeable and happy to talk about everything and anything! I have a shellfish allergy and this was dealt with easily. The night finished with a boat ride on the Bund and it was perfect. Thank you.

Lily and Mia took me and 3 friends around Shanghai on a walking food tour. They were super accommodating to me, as a vegetarian with a nut allergy. All the places we visited (from counter service, to sit down, to street food) were delicious! The guides were very knowledgeable answering a lot of our questions and letting us know all about Shanghai and China culture. They were also both fluent in English. After our walking tour they took us on a river boat ride to see the beautiful city lit up at night. Overall, a delicious, fun and informational night!

Had a great night in Shanghai with our guide Lily. We sampled some of the local delicacies including soup dumplings, my favourite, and even learned the correct way to eat them! Along with the food, Lily told us about the history of the restaurants we visited and the origins of the food. We visited parts of the city we would not have found ourselves and the food was delicious! The night was capped off with a cruise along the river to see Shanghai at night. We got a chance to talk to Lily about life in China, politics, education and history. Can't recommend this highly enough!

My husband and I love taking a foodie tour when we travel to new places as it's a great way to learn about the people and culture of where we are visiting, and our recent tour with Lily was one of our favorite ones yet! Lily is so energetic and personable and made us feel like we were old friends hanging out for an evening in Shanghai. She spoke fluent English sharing multiple stories with us as she took us to a variety of restaurants & markets where we enjoyed delicious cooking! After eating multiple small meals, we walked several blocks to the boat dock and then enjoyed cruising on the Huangpu River admiring the beautiful illuminated Bund skyscrapers with Lily answering any questions we might have. The three of us enjoyed a wonderful evening together and I definitely recommend booking this evening tour during your visit to Shanghai. You will love it!!

Lily took us to multiple local and popular food places around Shanghai - all of which were amazing (even the bull frog :)). I loved trying so many different kinds of food, this is a foodies dream so come hungry The bubble tea ad boat tour was the perfect ending to such a cool tour. Lily is awesome!
