          Fantastic Service & Friendly Guide
          Due to some unexpected work commitments, I had to modify our tour programme. Sunflower was fantastic in finding alternative arrangements that would fit my time restrictions. Maggie was a very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The tour was very efficient. All the tickets were ready so the bullet train travel was easy and comfortable. The “beat the queue” tickets for the attractions made access quick. The cars were always in the right/best place all the time. Maggie and Sunflower made it into a very enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend them.

          Binhai Library and Shopping
          Tour guide Kris was a fun guide and I enjoyed her stories of life in China. The Binhai Library was an interesting library catering more to tourists than scattered studious patrons. Photos of the library include book edges that are printed on the shelves as well as actual books. A respectable English book section was available for those planning a deeper dive into the library’s content but keep in mind that it may be locked as it was when I visited. You can request that it be opened. The library is located in a Plaza with shops and 2 museums. We stopped by the Science Museum and I especially enjoyed the space exploration exhibits. The market we visited was a typical flea market that I would see at home in the US. Many open booths. I bought a few things for the fun of it and enjoyed the haggling between the shop owners and Kris. Good tour to spend on a Sunday after hitting other highlights in Tianjin during the week.

          Excellent Tianjin City Tour by Sunflower Li
          Excellent Tour!! Highly Recommend!! Sunflower Li gave us a memorable tour of Tianjin’s city highlights on May 1, China’s Labour Day. Our guide was witty and kept us laughing as we strolled through crowded streets sampling local cuisine and browsing through the shops. Our stops included Culture Street, Porcelain House and People’s Square. Given the holiday, there were many vendors and performances on the street. Very crowded and well organized! Fun!

          Bullet train to the Great Wall
          Took this tour with my 23 yr old grandson and Li was so hospitable with us both. She walked to the farthest tower with him ! She always checked for our comfort and added snacks along the way. The bullet train is the way to go rather than a 3 1/2 hr bus ride. And Li will be sure to have you back to the ship on time !

          It was very nice experience. Everything was organized perfectly and on time. Ms Kriss was excellent guide, helpful, gave us insight in China and answered all our questions. She adopted well to our requests and dumplings at railway station were just the rigjt experience we were looking for. We can highly reccomend Ms Kriss and Sundlower agency

          Beijing highlights
          We had a wonderful trip organised by Sunflower. We were picked up from our ship in Tianjin, put on a bullet train by the driver to Beijing where Sunflower met us at the station holding a large sunflower! With a private car & driver she took us to Tiananmen Square discussing the history, lunch at a typical Chinese restaurant Hutong; the Temple of Heaven; the Forbidden City then booked us into our hotel. Sunflower had arranged a restaurant for dinner for us. The next day we went to the Great Wall then taken back to the bullet train. We were met the other end & taken back to our cruise ship. Sunflower speaks excellent English; is amusing informative & I can thoroughly recommend going on this trip.

          Worth every penny! Awesome trip with awesome tour guide Miss. Maggie
          Short Story: Our experience with Sunflower Tours/Miss.Maggie was really great. Book this tour without any 2nd thought, Miss.Maggie was like a Chinese friend than a tour guide. Long Story: Today, we got to see Great wall of China with a Professional, Great, Awesome, Friendly, Jovial tour guide Miss. Maggie. Tour was to our 100% satisfaction, well planned and well executed by Maggie and Sunflower team. Maggie was at the hotel lobby prompt for pickup from the hotel lobby towards local train station towards Beijing Station. After we got off from the train and cab driver was already waiting for us in the arrival area to pick us up and within few minutes we started our journey towards the great wall. Bottled water was supplied to us and Maggie ensured we're comfortable and started narrating all the history about Beijing city and Great wall. We reached Great wall accordingly to the scheduled time 12:30 pm. Then we headed towards cable car en route to top where we get to see the Great Wall and witness the immense structure that sprawls miles and miles long. Maggie took all our pics with smile on her face (For ~210 pics :-D) throughout the stay at Great Wall. We started our journey back after spending ~2:30 minutes at Great Wall, traffic was worse than expected but, it was handled very professionally by Maggie and she booked us a different train and dropped us at the hotel as per the plan. Kudos to Miss.Maggie once again and wish to be part of a different tour when we get to travel back to China, in future.

          Wonderful tour!
          My husband and I were picked up at our cruise ship (Oceania) by Miss Lina and a driver and taken to Beijing’s Forbidden City by car and train. We walked through the Forbidden City and were told of its fascinating history and culture. Her English was perfect! She took us all the way back to to ship when the tour was finished. We would gladly return and ask for her again. In fact we are thinking of sending her our granddaughter who speaks Mandarin for a week when she is in high school. Miss Lina was very friendly and very informative and we would recommend this tour to everyone, especially if you have a limited time in Beijing. We saw the best part!

          Two great days with Sunflower
          My husband and I, with two friends booked two private days with Sunflower, being picked up each day from our ship, The Azamara Quest docked in Tianjin. It was a long journey from the port (3hours) but we had a very comfortable vehicle and Sunflower entertained us with lots of information about China and all the places we were seeing about us. The wall at Huangua Pass was spectacular . Amazingly we had it almost to ourselves. Everything about the day was very well organised. Sunflower had lunch with my husband and our friend Billy in a local restaurant which they really enjoyed. My friend Mary and I remained in our vehicle as I had a bad back and Mary had a bad knee and after the exertions on the wall we needed to rest!!! The roads were amazing. Long straight highways going on forever. The following day we were being taken to Beijing by Bullitt train with the strict proviso that we must be back at the dock by four pm. Unfortunately the train station is a long way from the port and because of fog the road we needed to take was closed which meant that it took two and a half hours to get to the station. Once there the security was incredible. Two lots of showing our passports and three lots of baggage checks. This was because the big holiday parade was taking place the following week in Beijing. Finally we were on the train, in business class seats and the experience was amazing. The seats allowed you to virtually lie flat. Tea was provided and snacks. Also slippers. I was sorry that the journey time was only 30 mins. We reached speeds of nearly 350k Because of the delays caused by the weather we only had one hour in Beijing but the driver showed us as much as we could see in that short time. The Forbidden City was closed and Tiannamen (?) sq was tightly secured because of the upcoming parade. However we managed a visit to the Temple of Heaven which was a sublime experience. . Sunflower had us back on our train in time and we arrived back at the ship in good time. Sunflower was so lovely. Kind and thoughtful and it was quite amazing how she got us through all the various queues in Tianjin Station and onto our train for Beijing. I’m quite sure we would have wandered around for days if we had to navigate the way to the train on our own! Although we missed out on Beijing the experience of negotiating our way through the station was amazing. My husband had wanted to go back each night to sleep on the boat but if I were making the trip again I would have an overnight stop in Beijing which would cut out much of the travelling. However the section of the wall we visited was so wonderful I’m glad we travelled there from Tianjin port and not to the much more crowded sections visited from Beijing. All in all we would have no hesitation in recommending Sunflower and her team. We felt very well cared for during our two days.

          Bulletin train from Tianjin to Tian’anmen Square and Forbidden City/
          We were met at our cruise ship by Lina and a driver who took us to the bullet train in Tianjin so we could see Tian’anmen Square and the Forbidden City. Lina was a wonderful guide-very knowledgeable about China’s history and very personable. Her English was perfect and she was extreme it attentive to us, even helping with our bags. She was also very punctual keeping in mind that we had to return to the ship at a certain find. We would recommend this Sunflower tour to anyone and especially our guide Lina.

          Great tour
          We were a group of 6 people traveling on a cruise. We stayed in Tianjin for 3 days, we went 2 days to Beijing and 1 day we toured Tianjin. We booked a tour with Sunflower Tours China and were very lucky to have Maggie as our tour guide in Tianjin. She was very knowledgeable, informative and very energetic. It was a real pleasure having her as our guide. I highly recommend this company if you are lucky enough to get Maggie as your guide, you'll be extra happy.

          Great day in Beijing
          Thank you Sunflower for a wonderful day, we enjoyed every moment from the bullet train to a wonderful lunch at Dadong Restaurant and the delicious Peking Duck. Our time at the Summer Palace was also a highlight. We would recommend this day to all travellers who would like to experience history and have a lovely host to guide them
