Fantastic day out with friendly and knowledgeable guide
cuppatea2016, 22-03-2020
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!

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!
