I was lucky to choose her as a private guide. It was my first time in Shanghai and Sunny gave me the most valuable experience, that is the sense of place, of atmosphere and people. We visited Jade Buddah temple, spent some time exploring French concession and Tanjifang, visited fresh market and then dined in a perfect restaurant. Sunny is not only knoledgable but she is warm, humorous, ready to teach. She did her best to accomodate my needs and we both enjoyed this day like a day with a good friend.
