A five star rating for Sunny! We travel a lot and did our research for what experience we wanted and Sunny delivered a perfect day outside of Shanghai. We told her we wanted traditional water town with a "wink" - we went to Tongli (BEST decision) and had a great lunch in a family restaurant, boat ride in canal and a "kissing fish massage". It was a perfect day and we have Sunny and the personal driver to thank. We highly recommend Sunny for a unique and special day inside or outside of Shanghai!

Sunny arrived on time with a good driver in an excellent car. We drove to the water town she had recommended, Tongli, as she advised that two others I had mentioned were very crowded. That was an excellent decision as Tongli was atmospheric and idyllic, without crowds. She showed us around the town and took us on a little boat and ordered food after consulting with us on our preferences. It was a lovely day and Sunny is knowledgeable, bright, funny, and so easy to get along with.
(see our other review of our tour of Shanghai with Sunny). Sunny is an excellent and articulate English speaking private tour guide. She was happy to share her frank opinions about all aspects of Chinese culture, history and politics with us as interested foreign travellers. As with our prior trip with Sunny of Shanghai, because it was just our group of 4 and her in the very comfortable private minivan, Sunny tailor made our experience... A wonderful day! Thanks Sunny! Highly recommended!

Sunny was very responsive and easy to communicate with prior to booking the tour. Her English is excellent. She was prompt in picking us up at the time we requested. On the way out to the watertown, she provided some very interesting commentary about the countryside and life in Shanghai. She also pointed out some interesting things as we walked through the village. I was surprised that she didn't mention visiting the gardens, but was open to going when we brought it up. Overall, a nice half-day trip

Marvelous day with Sunny going to the water town of Tongli from the cruise ship dock in Shanghai. Traffic was very heavy on the way there and Sunny made the trip go quickly by providing commentary and interesting information for the duration of the journey. Once in Tongli Sunny was responsive to our group's limitations and tailored our day to be within our abilities. Tongli itself was beautiful and all the more so with Sunny guiding us through the day. An awesome day would do over again.

This tour was our second with Sunny. She is an exceptional guide who radiates confidence, courtesy and kindness. If you like shopping, she is a fearless bargainer. The day was rainy, 26-30C/78-80F and humid. We visited a quaint water town located in the countryside. After returning to Shanghai, we lunched on szechuan cuisine, walked a shopping promenade, enjoyed Chinese acupressure and toured ancient city monuments. It was a fun-filled day. We are grateful for her hospitality.

Tongli is a very good place to add to your time in Shanghai. Not too far from Shanghai and very interesting old city. Good food and some great picture sites. Highly recommend it and Sunny brought the old city to life.

A. great choice of town by a fantastic guide ably supported by her driver Oban. Touring with Sunny is like travelling with an old friend. Wonderful English, great sense of humour and excellent local knowledge. Sunny is everthing you would want in a guide and more.
