Fantastic day out with friendly and knowledgeable guide
Apr 2019
I had an amazing day out in Shanghai with Lilly. At first, I was worried about the expense of hiring a private guide when I usually just consult guide books and make my own way. But Shanghai is such a vast city and I really wanted to make every minute matter. It turned out to be the best money I spent on my entire two week trip to China and Singapore.
I went for a tour with our own driver and we covered everything I wanted to see. We went to the fabric market, the spectacles market, had a lovely walk through an older part of the city, a great lunch and went to the jade market. Lilly was happy to haggle for me, but I really wanted to learn. She gave me some great tips, helped when I needed it, and by the end of the day I was bargaining like a professional - it was great fun and it enhanced the rest of my trip.
I'm looking forward to coming back to Shanghai and when I do I'll certainly be having another fab shopping day with Sunny Tours.

Shopping with a Fast Pass
I booked a 4 hour shopping trip with Sunny and had an extremely positive experience. It was great to have someone that knew the right places to go, could navigate the bartering process and also lend an unbiased point of view. I was able to buy prescription eye glasses and prescription sunglasses with frames and lenses at a substantially lower price than in the US. I also purchased some pretty natural pearl pieces that were in stunning colors. A trip to the fake market resulted in a great pair of sneakers for my son and a wallet for my husband. There are lots of ladies handbags but none that met my personal bar. Sunny was a great resource because I had limited time. I would highly recommend!

Shopping tour

It was a cloudy and rainy day. However, having Sunny as our professional tour guide our shopping tour couldn't have been sunnier!! We visited all the places we wanted to see and went even beyond our itinerary. Sunny gave us all the information we needed. We commend Sunny for a job excellently done and highly recommend her to everyone planning to go on a shopping tour!!

Definitely will do again!
I booked this for shopping and to practice my Mandarin in bargaining for Chinese goods to bring back to the States with me; It surely didn't disappoint! She paid for herself within the first hour of clothes shopping in the subway area. Fun to talk to and hang around, and taught me some interesting things about Chinese culture.

Sunny was truly a great guide on our shopping tour. She knew exactly where to go for what we were looking to buy and was exceptionally helpful in bargaining! Not only that, but she was great company for our four hours! We would gladly have her as a guide on our next visit to Shanghai!

Lily did a great job finding the right stores based on the list I provided. It allowed me to get gifts for everyone on my list. She provided a tour of the local area and walked me through the metro system.

Shopping with Sunny Tours is the only way to go!
Aug 2019
Have you wanted to go to the South Bund Fabric Market, but did not know where to even start, given its three floors crammed with fabric merchants and tailors? We did, but we needed help - big time! And, Sunny saved the day. She expertly led us through all three floors, with its nooks and crannies, and pointed out specifically where we should get our shirts made, skirts made, suits made, coats made, etc. She has taken her clients there before, and she has had things made there herself, so she knows who does the best job , and for the best price. She will even help negotiate for you, and she drives a hard bargain! We were so grateful t her for her expertise and support through the process. We really liked our clothes and we have subsequently gone back to have other things made. We could not have taken that first step successfully without her. Thanks, Sunny!!!!

Sunny saved me, she will save you too!
Dec 2019 • Solo
She is so friendly and courteous and knowledgable - she knows the best merchants and knows how much "stuff goes for" - saving me both time (it takes too long to talk to everyone on your own!) And money. She is also happy to talk about other things (we talked about weddings, for example. Will buy wedding dress from here next time) I highly recommend you book this tour !

A professional personal guide to my specific wishes in Shanghai
Nov 2019
I found Sunny through Trip Advisor and selected her based on the positive reviews. I have used personal guides before and had high expectations. We corresponded by email and I expressed my wish list (dress for a daughter and niece, clothing for myself, look at pearls and visit silk factory, etc). Sunny explained the plan and from start to finish ensured all went smoothly and efficiently. I never once felt pushed to purchase anything and she helped me get fair prices and be sure to see quality. Honestly, without a guide I would have not realized when a price was very good nor when it was ridiculous! I felt like the shopkeepers were very respectful and was impressed by the qualities of the fabrics and manufacturing. We caught a quick bite and moved on--never wasting a moment. Sunny was friendly but in no way obtrusive and caught on quickly to my style and preferences. I wish I had time to revisit the designers again. Highly recommend.

Sunny is the best!
Oct 2019
Sunny looked at photos of clothing I was interested in, and took me to some great tailors who we were able to negotiate with to get even better prices. These ranged from silk dresses to a full on sequin suit! Additionally, she took me to look at handbags and we were able to find exactly what I was looking for at great prices. I highly recommend Sunny for shopping in Shanghai - without her, I would have struggled to decide which vendors to go with and certainly would not have gotten such great pricing.
