Sunny was a wonderful guide - very professional and easy to understand. We ended up asking her to change our tour itinerary at the last minute, and she readily agreed and did a great job at making sure we got to see and do everything on our list. Sunny even helped us bargain for souvenirs! We visited the Shanghai Museum, the Urban Planning Center, the Jade Buddha Temple, a neighborhood food market and local "knock-off" mall and a wonderful dim sum restaurant in the French Concession. Great day!
