    We were assigned Mary and she was very experienced and could share a lot regarding the places we visited. She was also very accommodating with our requests, as I was traveling along with a young child. Our driver was very polite, ana we never had to wait long for pick up. His car was first class. Clean and well prepared with water and tissue.

    This small water town close to Shanghai is quiet and pretty. The boat ride gave you a good view of the water town. Our guide Jerry provided good details of the places we visited. Recommended for a half day getaway from Shanghai.

    Our moods were lifted right in the morning after we met her. Cheerful and full of smiles were how she impressed us in the beginning. She continued to feed us with knowledge about the places we went and pointed out where places to eat. She was very patient to answer my son's repetitive questions such that he wanted to communicate with her throughout the trip. When even a young child can adore her, how can we not to?

    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!

    Comfortable 6 seaters car for our 2 hours ride Shanghai to Suzhou. Went to The Master Net Garden, historical beautiful garden and the details were well explained by Rita, our guide 👍. Boat ride across canal, viewing The Venice of Asia. Delicious Suzhou cuisine lunch.

    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!

    It has been a fantastic trip with our guide Pan, who did an excellent job! We were a group of 7 people - the car transport has been comfortable for all of us. We had sufficient time to see all interesting places at this old town. There has been no time pressure. We recommend this tour to everyone. Sunny tours have been extremely good in conversation & organization - a perfect tour management. One of our group is not an english speaker and it has been agreed to get only an english speaking guide (so we want than help for the one not understanding) - but as a surprise Sunny organized a german speaking guide and all of us have been very relaxed in conservation then. Many thanks to Guide, Driver and Sunny Tours for this perfect day!

    This was a wonderful experience! Caroline and Alana were beyond what I hoped for! Alana got in touch well before the trip to ask about my needs and wants and was incredibly responsive and accommodating… she even arranged for a cake to be delivered to our restaurant as a surprise for my husband’s birthday!!! Navigating the train stations and the intense crowds would have been really hard for us without a guide, but Caroline made everything so smooth and fun. She knew everything about the architecture, the meaning behind design elements, and she had lots of stories to bring history alive and also explained the contemporary city. There were teenage girls everywhere dressed in Ming dynasty garb, and Caroline was able to explain to us that right now there is a popular TV show set in that period, so the girls were having their hair and makeup done, and renting costumes to take pictures of themselves in the old city for fun. We enjoyed our day and learned so so much all because of this tour, and Caroline. Without her, we would’ve been stressed and confused and would have missed tons of interesting things. Definitely book this tour, well worth it!!!

    Annie took me to some amazing photo stops despite my disability issues. Her English and cultural insights were invaluable.

    My Didi app payment did not work but she happily took over and of course I paid her with cash after that. Although the old antiques market is gone, Sunny brought me to a labyrinth of tiny shops in a mall at Yu Garden. We shortly we came across a tiny antique shop owned by a lovely couple. With Sunny’s bargaining skills, I eventually bought 2 gourd vases made of brass, at a relatively good price!! As a sole female traveler, I felt safe and well taken care of!

    Miki has a personal touch and speaks excellent English. She is emphatic, caring and a very dynamic person with lots of experience in her work.

    She has this incredible talent of being able to anticipate your needs even before you thought of it.

    Bubbly and cheerful, Miki is one in a million!

    Thanks Miki for making my trip to Shanghai so memorable.

    We enjoyed this trip very much. The car was air-conditioned and comfortable to ride in, with a pleasant driver, who took us between the attractions. Our guide - Ms. Berlin - was wonderful!

    She tailored the experience to our needs (we are an older couple), took good care of us (she provided us with hand disinfection, face masks and refreshments along the way) and talked about Shangai most engagingly and with deep knowledge. Very professional behaviour and great English!

    The food we had at a modern Chinese restaurant was delicious. Everything was well planned and ran smoothly. We heartily recommend this tour and Ms. Berlin as guide!

    Superb private night tour with our tour guide and driver who were being so helpful, kind, attentive and flexible.

    We experienced unexpected weather and heavy rain and thunderstorms. Our tour guide has modified our visit plan to meet our needs.

    We hope to join again next time and would definitely recommend this tour to others!

    The tour guide Roy is very nice, responsible and on time, he explained all the history story of different sightseeing spots for us and made us understand the city more.
    We went during CNY and everywhere was crowded. Our guide tried his very best to make all our itinerary on time and we had a great experience in Suzhou.
