A Gorgeous Day in Water Town
Aug. 2020 • Family
The Watertown section of this tour was a marvelous adventure and such a pleasant diversion from the bright lights and bustle of downtown Shanghai. Sunny and her driver picked us up at the hotel in a spotless van with plenty of water for the trip (it was a hot day!). After a scenic drive through the suburbs and countryside surrounding Shanghai (during which Sunny gave lots of information about the architecture and history of buildings in the Shanghai area), we arrived at Zhujiajiao - a quiet, beautiful town with numerous canals. Sunny took care of tickets and arrangements, and assisted us with health QR codes and other details we needed for access. We went to some of the shopping areas first, enjoying fun and tasty local fare such as "popcorn ice cream" (made with liguid nitrogen) and various delicious rice wines. Sunny even helped us with a little bartering! We cruised the narrow stone-lined streets and bridges that traversed the canals. Simply beautiful. We then took a gondola-type ride and Sunny added local history and colour to the surroundings. It added a lot to the experience. The Watertown section of the tour took just over 5 hours, including driving time. A great way to spend the first half of our day!

The Shanghai City Highlights portion of the tour was the Oriental Pearl Tower (since you can customize your tour with Sunny, this was the only major landmark we had not seen) - an amazing view (and we got some great pics!) Again, Sunny took care of us with top notch service. We can't thank Sunny enough for the care she took in assisting us and her attention to detail. If you need someone for a tour of Shanghai or the surrounding areas, we highly recommend Sunny - she is great!

Great private tour!
May 2019 • Couples
We had a wonderful tour! It was easy to book and everything was very easy to set up. We were in town for my husbands work conference and only had 1 day without any meetings to see the highlights. Rita was our tour guide and she met us in the lobby of our hotel. We had a wonderful clean car and private driver. The water town was really amazing and Rita did a great job explaining all the delicacies and wares in the market and was willing to help us find souvenirs we were interested in. Next we chose to visit Yuyuan Street and Rita took us to a delicious dumpling and noodle restaurant for lunch. Then we had a tour of Yu Garden which was beautiful. Lastly we went to Jade Buddha Temple, which was truly amazing! I am so glad we had a guide like Rita to help us navigate the city and explain the history behind all the things we were seeing. I highly recommend!

A great day in Shanghai
Oct. 2019
My sister and I stopped in Shanghai before our cruise. We wished we had booked more days in Shanghai but it was too late to make changes. Claire was our guide and managed to show us everything we wanted to see and the Watertown. She then took us directly to our cruise ship. This was perfect since we were jet lagged and never could have accomplished all of this in one day. We really enjoyed Claire who has excellent English speaking skills and was very nice. She took us to a nice restaurant and overall this was one of the highlights of our trip. I was initially a little nervous about making a down payment, but Sunny was super easy to work with and our guide confirmed the night before by phone and met us promptly in the lobby. I encourage anyone to book for the best use of your time. By the way.....she also had a driver, so was able to drop us off in busy spots and jump out with us and then we were promptly picked up and on to the next.

Best Guide Ever!
Oct. 2019
We had an unbelievable guide for this trip, Claire. She was very knowledgeable on the history of China, and she did a fantastic job describing current events in the country. I could not have asked for a better tour of the Shanghai area. I would recommend this to anyone visiting!

Perfect Shanghai Zhujiajiao Watercity Visit
We had a perfect visit to Zhujiajiao. A fast drive from Shanghai that avoided the Golden Week traffic. Lily, our guide, is a delight: charming, informative and considerate. She has an excellent command of English and we had wonderful conversations in the course of the tour. The tour was like a leisurely stroll in charming gardens and waterwaysand a great photo opportunity.

Amazing day tour
Wow, just had the best day with our guide Rita. She took us to the Zhujiaiajiau water town which was very beautiful. We had a relaxing ride in the gondola and we then had the opportunity to buy gifts in the many local shops, including some pearls which we bought at a very reasonable price. We then went to the Jade Buddha Temple which was well worth a visit and Rita was very informative, making this more interesting. It was a calming and spiritual place to be.
Finally, we went to the Yu Gardens, walking through the Old Town to get there.
Rita and our driver were very flexible and allowed us to change parts of our itinerary during our tour.
Thank you Rita for looking after us, we would recommend this tour to fit in the highlights of Shanghai in a day.

Excellent tour guiding service
Annie has been a wonderful guide and is a great conversationalist. She is considerate towards my elderly parents throughout the trip and her introduction to Shanghai helps us to learn more about the city, its history and culture. She pointed out several beautiful architecture in the city, from temples to modern buildings, which we would have missed if we were on our own.

Our trip is off to a great start thanks to her!

Visit to Water Town and Old Town
Aug. 2019
Sunny was a wonderful guide. Her English was excellent and she was very flexible with the tour - what I wanted to see vs what I had already seen. She knows her history well, but also shares with context and interesting stories that make it very memorable.

Superb Shanghai tour!!
Aug. 2019
From being picked up punctually at our hotel, comfortable private transport and absolute gem of a tour guide, Annie, our first day in Shanghai will always have special memories for us. The tour started in Zhuijiajiao water town, walking through narrow streets with many shops selling all kinds of souvenirs and food including beetles etc on skewers.The walk was followed by a short but delightful river boat ride. Then we went back to Shanghai and had lunch in a smart restaurant where we had a typical Chinese meal, sweet and sour pork, beef, vegetables and dumplings all eaten by using chopsticks (we were useless so we quickly asked for cutlery). Following lunch we drove along the riverside area called the Bund, Annie knew that we were going back there the next day so we didn't spend any time here although she did point out places of interest. Next was the Yuyuan Gardens and shopping area, very crowded and as we had been in a typical old house with family antiques and pretty gardens in the water village we decided to give this a miss. Went to the Jade Buddha Temple, lucky enough to see the Buddhist monks go to prayer. The day was jam packed with interesting places, facts and brilliant knowledge from Annie. We couldn't praise her enough. You always have doubts as to what service you are going to get but after our tour we can assure you that these excursions are well organised and well worth the money. Thank you to Sunny tours and a massive thanks to Annie, it was a pleasure to meet you and we will always remember this unforgettable day.

Fantastic tour with the added bonus of touring Shanghai
Aug. 2019
Sunny was a fantastic tour guide and spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. The Zhujiajiao tour allowed us to get a feel for a water town without having to spend the whole day there. This allowed for us to explore the key sights in Shanghai with Sunny, which was much better with a guide. We had a very tight schedule in Shanghai, that was shortened even more by the weather, so this tour helped us fit in everything we wanted to see in and around Shanghai in a short time frame. One side note, many tours offer lunch that is just "ok", but our lunch was at a very nice restaurant with fantastic food.
