Sunny was such a great tour guide! She gave us a fabulous tour with cultural insight. She was warm, informative, and funny. So many parts of the tour were amazing, but the highlight of our day was going to the park and simply interacting with locals. The food was amazing and we ended the day happy and satisfied. Sunny made a special friendship with my 10 year old daughter and the photo they took together will be a cherished memento of our trip to China!
Philip SarkisianUnited States
Sunny was an excellent guide, knowledgable, friendly. It was just wonderful to have her as our guide
We had a private tour with Sunny. In all communications whilst arranging the tour details and on the tour itself, I found Sunny to be friendly, organised and professional. I have no reservations in recommending Sunny. TH, Australia
Matt CulbertsonUnited States
Sunny provided a private 2-day tour of Shanghai area (including a trip to a water town) to my teenage daughter and did a tremendous job. From coordinating details ahead of time to the tour itself she was bright, personable and highly engaged in tailoring to specific questions and requests. Great tours of both primary tour spots and custom local knowledge and interest...Shanghai is a great city and Sunny did a tremendous job - highly recommend :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Matt! Thank you so much for such positive review and your trust in letting me show your lovely daughter around! I also enjoyed spending the time with her and hope you will have time for sightseeing when you come back to Shanghai next time! Please send my best regards to Emma ! Cheers! Sunny
Ted BrotherUnited States
Sunny is the best. Four of us spent two days with her and she was knowledgeable and most important she read each of our needs. I would go back if I was guaranteed that "sunny" would be our guide. Nancy and Ted Brother
Alan SchwartzUnited States
Again, this was a very good tour and highly recommended for anyone looking for someone to explain Shanghai and give you some good restaurants to eat at.
Very charming. She knows Shanghai inside out. On our second day, she brought us to Watertown, outside Shanghai and it was worth it
Andrew WhiteUnited States
Sunny was an incredible guide. Great English. Fun, energetic. We really enjoyed our time with her!
Barry G.United States
Sunny is a great tour guide! She is very knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm and energy. We had a wonderful day with her and a delicious lunch in a typical Shanghai dumpling restaurant. She also arranged our pick up from the airport upon our arrival from the USA to Shanghai and or trip from the hotel to the ship on our embarkation day and everything was perfect!
Peter BurlowUnited Kingdom

Sunny a perfect name for her personality. Very obliging and informative we highly recommend a private tour with Sunny. Nothing was too much trouble.
Sherwood SterlingIndio, CA, United States
Sunny was an outstanding guide, knowledgeable, funny and very personable. She gave us a very detailed understanding of Shanghai in an unfortunately brief time. My wife and I recommend her highly.

Sunny is a splendid guide. Not only does she have a thorough knowledge of Shanghai and its history but she communicates very well. Her impish sense of humour kept us laughing all day . She accommodated every request we made. To sum up , she is top notch, a 5 PLUS. Tom and Yvonne Toynbee
Lisa SproatUnited States
Sunny was fabulous! You can't do Shanghai without Sunny. She was an impeccable tour guide. We loved her personality, she was intuitive about what we wanted and also inquired about what we had in mind. We spent 3 days with her in all. She shared so much of the culture with us. We would have been lost without her. Worth it! We picked her for her excellent reviews and they were spot on.
There were 12 of us and we all thought Sunny was wonderful. She was well organized and very informative and such a joy to have as a guide. Her english is excellent and she did all the things we were looking to do. Totally recommend her as a guide.

Barry KellyUnited States
Sunny was indeed sunny and we had a terrific tour. Her English is perfect and we had excellent communications all day. She helped us bargain on some of our purchases in the "fake" shopping mall, which is a fun experience in and of itself. We had a fun filled day sightseeing and shopping . I would highly recommend Sunny for your tour guide needs!!!!!
Geoffrey DaileyUnited Kingdom
Fantastic from start to fnish. They say great things come in small packages and it is certainly true with Sunny. Great English and a wonderful sense of humour. Extremely knowledgeable. Also a very good driver (Oban) . It was like being with an old friend. We cannot recommend her too highly.
Barbara FosterUnited States
We have had Sunny take us shopping before and she is just great and very knowledgeable. We were at one place shopping for fabric by the yard and the shop stated it was silk. She talked to them and had them test the silk with a lighter, it was NOT silk but had plastic in. She also knows what things should cost. To see her look when they give an outrageous price is hilarious, she is very conscientious. Love to have her go shopping with us, she is GREAT! Will request her again when in Shanghai,
'tours by locals.com' and Sunny provide the best "value for money". This was our second tour arranged with Sunny C.,this time for my in-laws. Sunny was always accommodating to help them who are above 60 yrs.She showed them around at their pace. Always narrating the history or the salient feature of the tourist spot. As per them she was very caring and concerned for their enjoyment. If needed I would arrange another tour with Sunny for my other family relatives. -Puneet Soni ( San Diego)
Ronald TsaiUnited States
Sunny is a great tour guide and very knowledgeable of the city with fluent English. She did some research to guide me to all the great night photography scenes. Also recommenced the great place for lunch and dinner. I'm highly recommenced to have her as tour guide. Thank you so much much Sunny and hope to see you on my next trips.
Ted SullivanUnited States

Lynda AllanNew Zealand
Sunny was a wonderful guide I would highly recommend, she provide very knowledgable comment, was able to answer questions, showed us some great sites made really good recommendations in regard where to go and what to see, would never seen so much of Shanghai if not for Sunny, many thanks

Lynda AllanNew Zealand
I wanted to pass on our appreciation for the wonderful guide Sunny; she is truly a great ambassador for your company and China. She has an excellent knowledge of the areas we visited, her english is great, we all enjoyed her tours. I know some people going on a cruise later in the year and have recommended contacting your company to organize a tour with Sunny. Thanks again for the wonderful time in Shanghai. Regards Lynda & Rob Allan, Rex & Jenny McDonald
Len Ganotemill Valley, CA., United States
Sunny and her associate Lilly were the best private tour guides that we have ever hired. Their English language skills were excellent and knowledge of Shanghai was impressive. Both were punctual and had a very positive , bubbly personalities. Sunny was very professional and hired a great car and driver to show us around Shanghai. I would rate both 10 stars if permitted. I will use Tours by Locals again. Len from San Francisco
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Len, Thanks so much for your positive feedback and It was my great pleasure to show you all around! Hope we meet meet again in Shanghai in future ! Cheers. best regards, Sunny
Len Ganotemill Valley, CA., United States
Sunny communicated with us prior to our arrival in perfect English and was at the dock waiting for us when our ship arrived in Shanghai. What a comfortable feeling seeing the bright, positive guide waiting for as as we began our tour. She is very professional and her English is perfect. This our first experience wuthTours by Locals and we felt like we hit the jackpot with Sunny. She is the best and we would give her ten stars if permitted. Len from San Francisco.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Wonderful feedback on your first tour! We look forward to welcoming you back for more.
Linda H.United States
Sunny guided us last year in Shanghai and did a perfect job relating to the interests of two 60+ year old adults. I hired her this January to guide a college student of mine and two of her friends. They also loved her. She can relate to two different age groups
Sunny did an amazing job with our tour of Hangzhou. She had the entire day planned and always made us feel as if the schedule was ours to adjust at any time. We were never rushed and Sunny provided excellent commentary on the sites we visited. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Hangzhou and always took extra care to keep the kids interested as we hiked through caves, climbed the Pagoda, or while driving between locations. Will recommend Sunny for sure and hire her again in the future.
We had a fabulous one day tour with Sunny in Shanghai. Sunny asked for input and designed our tour around what we said was important for us to see. The tour was leisurely with sufficient time to enjoy and absorb what we were experiencing. Sunny was a great source of information about the history and culture of Shanghai. She even danced in the park with one of our group!! I would highly recommend Sunny as a tour guide!
Jean SavageVancouver, WA, United States
Sunny is an excellent guide; I enjoyed my French Concession tour immensely. In fact, it was one of the best days in a month in China. I appreciated Sunny's willingness to be flexible about my itinerary and her care in meeting plans & confirmation. I also appreciated her openness. My interest in a country is greatly enhanced by learning about individual's lives. Sunny's English skills are the highest. I met a lot of guides in China and she is at the top.
Scott HarrisUnited States
Sunny was on time for this city tour and we took taxis to all destinations which was probably the best because we could spent whatever time we needed at each site...the old city, the Yu Garden, the Bund, & the French Concessions. Sunny has a very good understanding of the history & was very flexible for what we wanted to do. It rained so that made it challenging for us. We ended a little early but we were OK with this so we could get to hotel and get ready to head home. All is all a great tour.
Scott HarrisUnited States
Nice 5 hour tour to Zhujiajiao where we walked around the old town and then later drove to Fengjing and visit Fengjing artist village. Transportation was provided for this and it really helped to have a car waiting. Sunny did a wonderful tour but it was hot so we probably didn't spend as long as we would have. We left early which was great because the village was quite. Not sure I'd recommend the artists village but it was interesting to see. Only comment...we didn't use all hours we paid but that was OK.
Suzanne TsangUnited States
Sunny is excellent! I had specific plans for our one day in Shanghai and she was not only accommodating but knew how to best alter my plan to suit my nine year old daughter's needs.
Dorothy HemmingUnited States
My husband and I were in Shanghai visiting our son ( he joined us on the tour as well) and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Sunny met us at our hotel and led us through sights at a really nice pace. We enjoyed her lovely and professional demeanor. She was very informative and knowledgeable on all aspects pertaining to Shanghai. We will definitely book with Sunny again the next time we are in town!
Louanne McCranieUnited States
My husband and I scheduled a two day tour with Sunny and she was wonderful! She is very fluent in English, which I must say cannot be said for all private tour guides/companies. We were on several other tours throughout China, and no one came close to her English. She scheduled two perfect days that did not involve an unnecessary amount of travel time between sites. She arranged for a driver on one day when we visited water town, which is a must see. We cannot say enough positive words about Sunny!!!
Linda WernerUnited States
Sunny is the best! Great command of English, great personality, and great wisdom and knowledge about Shanghai. Her bargaining skills were very effective and a sight to behold. Watching her bargain for us with shop vendors was amazing. Would highly recommend her to anyone.
Ken KlimaUnited States
Sunny was an outstanding guide who took care of everything for our tours, destinations, translations .... literally everything. She was completely professional and engaging for every member of our group. Very knowledgeable about Shanghai and all of China. I would recommend her guide services to anyone visiting Shanghai for a short or extended period.
Linda H.United States
Excellent command of English and responsive to our requests
Maria DavisUnited States
My husband and I usually book our private tours when we book a cruise. We almost always will look on the "cruise critics forum" for any suggestions or recommendations of other cruise guest or travelers. And if someone recommends a specific guide , they are almost always 100% correct on the guide selection. Sunny was highly recommended by other cruise travelers. We also were 100% satisfied with her service. She is a very smart and energetic young lady. If you are looking to see the best of Shanghai, book.
Susan DemkinUnited States
Sunny was an excellent guide....on-time, adjusted the tour to our preferences, extremely knowledgeable about Chinese culture and the sites that we were seeing. Also, she took us to a great Chinese restaurant and ordered food for us that we all enjoyed. In addition, her command of the English language, and her ability to understand American dry humor, innuendos, and American jokes was impressive. I highly recommend Sunny...she is a pleasure to work with, and we wish her all the success in the world.Susan
David JacobUnited States
Sunny did an excellent job. I had one day, and she took me all over, and explained everything. I had a personal interest in certain areas and she clearly researched them before I came.
Stephen Fairs-HallCayman Islands
Once again Tours by locals provided us with an utterly charming, knowledgeable guide. I am sure Sunny would not mind me saying that for a petite young lady she is a dynamo when it comes to visiting the sights of Shanghai. We were blessed with beautiful (if cold) weather when we visited so the places we visited were particularly exciting. I won't go into details here it is up to you to explore Shanghai with Sunny's help of course. We are sure you will enjoy the experience we certainly did. Thank you Sunny!
Sunny was a terrific guide and great company. Wonderful way to spend time getting to know Shanghai - everything was smooth and easy. Thank you Sunny!

Ray LongParbold, Wigan, LANCS, United Kingdom
This was our 1st visit to Shanghai and we wanted to experience as much as possible in a short time. Sunny asked us what we were interested in and then designed a day tailored to meet our requirements. She was very flexible, fitting in with our schedule and location. She was knowledgable, spoke very good English and was a joy to be with all day. She even intervened couple of times to ensure we did not over pay for some simple items we needed, such as batteries. Highly recommended!!
Rosham Kadiman SamsudinMalaysia
Sunny and her friend Lilian was very helpful and even went extra mile in guiding me around. Very flexible with the original plan/ ittenerary. Highly recomended.
Robert RohdeJenkintown, PA, United States
Sunny was excellent and happy I hired her for 3 of 7 days in Shanghai. I usually travel independently, but Sunny was a great help. She was very accessible and cooperative in setting up the tour-- I had pre-planned a lot for myself and knew what I wanted to do and see. She was a tremendous help in shopping. She handled a difficult taxi situation superbly. Her knowledge of Suzhou & Shang. great. Her English excellent. She is personable and it was a pleasure spending 3 days with her. Thank you, Sunny!

Sunny was very informative and flexable which is what we really needed for a day tour where we were traveling on business and had one day for site seeing. Sunny took us a number of places in the day and gave us some excellent suggestions on where we should go. She knew dates when buildings and sites were made. Thanks Sunny for a fun day we won't forget it. Joe and Mike
Paulette MarcoulidesUnited States
We were absolutely delighted with Sunny!!! She was exactly what her name implied. She was very knowledgeable about the whole area and really made the most of our time. We will definitely use your company again and will recommend you to everyone we know. We have already done so to many of our passengers on our cruise. Thank you very much. We loved Sunny and will use her again if ever in this area again!!!
Richard Z.woodbridge, CT., United States
We have been to Shanghai four times and this was the best visit all due to Sunny. She was like a friend for the entire 14 hours we spent which included a high light of the Acrobat Show which she insisted we see. She is knowledgeable, personal, warm, caring and a delight to be with.
Miss Sunny is a truly outstanding guide and a very charming person. It was such a pleasure to spend a day in Shanghai with her. She is knowledgeable, flexible and caring - just a joy to be with. She has a great sense of humor. I could not recommend her more highly.

Sunny gave a great personalized tour of Shanghai. Her English is fluent and she was very responsive to our requests. We decided to go see the acrobat show in the evening and Sunny went out of her way to get tickets and escort us to the theatre 2 hours after our tour should have been done. Highly recommended.

Lesley DamischUnited States
Personable, funny, well informed and thoroughly delightful! I would highly recommend Sunny!
Sunny is well presented, speaks English perfectly, is very upbeat and energetic, and knows the city very well. Her restaurant recommendations and guidance was excellent, and she was always willing to stray off the beaten track or amend the text-book schedule to accommodate our wishes. Importantly, she was like a little pit-bull when she needed to be - never afraid to stand up to locals to the benefit of her clients. I can recall her muscling in to the train ticket line to save us some waiting time
Maxine van OostenNew Zealand
Sunny was extremely helpful from the beginning, making us a flexible tour for the days we had in Shanghai. The fee was reasonable and arrangements via email were convenient, prompt and easy. Sunny is punctual, friendly and her english is extremely good. She took us to the main Shanghai sights, shopping (where we used her local knowledge to help us bargain a great price) and to Suzhou on the fast train. We loved the 'knock off' market, the food and the people. Thank goodness we had you Sunny! xx
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Maxine, Thank you very much for the reveiws and it was so great meeting you and ur families in Shanghai! Keep in touch ! All the best, Sunny
Sunny was awesome! She is very knowledgeable and easy to chat with. I enjoyed her company immensely and she provided a great tour of Shanghai's highlights. Thank you for a great day!!!!

Matthew BrownUnited Kingdom
I booked a specialist private tour to see the most important stores in Shanghai on a recent business trip. Sunny was totally helpful and very knowlegable, helping me to navigate the best of the city with the limited time. She was friendly, professional and gave a great insight into the city. I would strongly recommend her again.

Melinda (Mindy) ClarkAlexandria, VA, United States
At my company I have high expectations for my employees and we also use a Likert scale (1-5) for evaluating performance. On that scale, if an employee does the outstanding work they are expected to do, they receive a "3" or "meets expectations". Lilian was delightful, knowledgeable, polite and professional. Everything I expected and I had a lovely experience for which I am grateful and that I have recommended to others. Using my customary scale, this outstanding experience rated a solid "3"
