    Excellent tour. Xin was a fantastic guide from start to finish. Would’ve never found this area of Shanghai and had this experience without her help. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting

    We went on a one day trip to Suzhou with Roy the tour guide from Sunny Tours.
    It was a last minute plan, we only started to book the trip at around 5pm plus the evening before the day of the trip. Despite the last minute booking, Sunny Tour responded very promptly. Funny is, I only made booking for my mum, my husband and myself (3 adults) but I forgot to book a child ticket for my darling daughter! I realised that as I clicked on the payment authorisation, but it was too late for me to cancel the payment. I tried to book a child ticket on its own but apparently Tripadvisor doesn't allow you to book just a single child ticket on its own. So, i reached out to Sunny Tours directly. The person in charge responded very quickly and provided a solution on the spot. Perfect!

    On the next day, Roy the tour guide reached our hotel early and was already waiting for us at our hotel lobby. The car was also waiting for us in front of the hotel.

    We were shuttled to the Shanghai Central train station. We waited for a while and then we were on our way to Suzhou! I barely managed to nap and we were there in no time. The train was fast.

    The driver in Suzhou was already waiting for us at the basement carpark. Then we went on to all the places of interest as listed on the itinerary. Transition from place to place was so smooth and we were shuttled to different destinations in a jiff.

    Roy was a really detailed tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the places and the history we were brought to. He is also patient and has a pleasant demeanor.

    The all inclusive lunch was great and yummy. The toilet at the restaurant is also very clean. Clean and high tech toilets in Shanghai are the norm nowadays.

    Overall, great day trip to Suzhou and I'd recommend it to anyone who's interested to visit Suzhou!

    Decent tour with stops at important landmarks. Our guide Michael was awesome, adding stories where appropriate. Good way to get some introduction behind the history of the city. Stop At Silk factory was purely marketing!

    Caroline was really amazing and the excursion was interesting and exciting. Caroline's English was very easy to understand which we appreciated a lot because we are not native-speakers and sometimes we have difficulties with understanding other guides. And the driver was great. I am anxious and usually I feel uncomfortable when another person drives a car, but at this excursion I felt safe because the driver was very careful.

    It was extremely interesting to see the two different towns, enjoy the scenery and savour the local cuisine. The Watertown was nice and quaint, it supposedly looks like how China was in the past. The shops were cute, artsy and reasonably priced. The whole tour felt rushed though. Even though the advertisement indicates 10 hours, we were back at the hotel in 8. The advertised tour does not mention a minimum participant number, but as they only had our 2 person party, they informed us the night before the tour that we could cancel or pay an extra $100. As we had nothing planned and it was too late to get something else, we chose for the extra ‘cash’ payment. Our guide, Tom, spoke English exceptionally well, was very interesting and had tons of things to explain. We learned a lot! He made us feel rushed though. The lunch was very good (and way too much…) in a very authentic restaurant. We would maybe have preferred to eat in the water town, but no complaints at all.
    So, beside from the feeling rushed, and the last minute $100 charge, we really enjoyed the tour and are very pleased we choose it!

    We are family of 6, 4 adults with 2 young kids. We are so happy to the services provided by Tracy and Alana. They are so professional and well training. Tracy explain and tell us the historical of Suzhou and Alana come with us from our hotel to Suzhou and bring us back to hotel safely. Alana even provide assistant when we need after our day tour. We dint regret that we have booked this day tour and able to meet Tracy and Alana.

    Caroline is a very cheerful and happy person, bringing smiles and joys throughout the trip. She is very nice and polite not only to us but to the drivers and the people we met during the trip. She is easy going and easy to talk to. She is also very knowledgeable, sharing with us a lot of information about the places and things. She is caring and making sure that we are well taken care of, looking out for us, for eg making sure we are seated at the right seats, asking us if we are tired, if we need a drink, be careful of wet floor and steps etc. We are grateful for her services and help and guidance today. The tour to Hangzhou as amazing as it can get by itself, can only be made more wonderful if every tour operator has a leader like her.

    We had an incredible experience on our half-day tour to Zhujiajiao with Chris and Sunny Tours. Chris was an excellent guide, knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive to our needs. The tour was well-organized, and we got to see so much in a short time. The beautiful water town of Zhujiajiao is a must-see, and Chris made the experience unforgettable. Highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore the charm of this ancient town!

    Best private tour ever. Fantastic experience. Our tour guide and the company were so accommodating and flexible to cater our needs and schedule. The tour guide is a local lady who is being so gentle, polite and informative. She is also very patient and willing to fit in our time. We were arranged a great lunch in a restaurant of very high quality and standard without asking us for extra. Really appreciated it! The driver was very friendly and helpful. The car was so comfortable and clean as well.

    Would definitely join again next time. Highly recommended.
