My friends and myself had a very short stay in Shanghai and we wanted to experience the bullet train trip. We decided to visit Suzhou as it is only 30-minute trip from Shanghai by the bullet train. The city was so beautiful, so many trees, beautiful gardens, wonderful people and amazing food. Our guide Ms. Apple met us at the hotel lobby in Shanghai. As usual all the tour guides from Sunflower tours are very punctual and very organized. She explained our day's itinerary and we proceeded to the bullet train station. Our driver Mr. Yang was waiting for us at the Suzhou railway station. He was a very friendly person. The car in which he took us around Suzhou was very clean like brand new and it was very comfortable drive through Suzhou. Suzhou is a beautiful city with gardens, canals like Venice, narrow shopping alleys, bars, cafe and restaurants. Our guide took us to a restaurant for traditional Chinese lunch. It was one of the most amazing traditional restaurants we visited in the entire trip. It was a great choice by Ms. Apple. Ms. Apple is a full-time professional tour guide, and she speaks very good English. She has a very good knowledge of the history of Suzhou and explained the places we visited with great detail. I'll definitely recommend Sunflower Tours and Ms. Apple; we had a wonderful experience of visiting Suzhou and the bullet train trip.

This was one of its kind trip. We wanted to experience bullet train, and have good time, Suzhou had it all. From lovely parks full of beautiful people, to boating feeling like Venice, to see the leaning trover in tiger hill. Our guide Ms. Apple was very helpful, and gave us an excellent background to the history. Do enjoy shopping in Suzhou.

這次的旅程很有緣分的透過Sunflower Li 安排與我的導遊Julia同遊,讓我能安心的欣賞美景與享受整個旅遊的樂趣,Julia除細心安排所有的細節外還具備豐富的知識,能將風土民情深入講解,這真是一趟理性又感性的旅程。 This trip is very fateful. I arranged to travel with my tour guide Julia through Sunflower Li, so that I can enjoy the beautiful scenery and enjoy the fun of the whole tour. In addition to carefully arranging all the details, Julia also has a wealth of knowledge to In-depth explanation, this is really a rational and emotional journey

This is our first time to Shanghai for business trip and leisure. When the business matters were done we decided to go to Suzhou. We very suddenly booked this trip (7pm) for next morning 😀 I thought it would be cancelled by the tour agent. But what was suprising was that the professionaly made a schedule for tomorrow 👍👍 Next morning Ms Julia picked up us at the hotel on time and we headed to train station to board the train (to Suzhou) Arriving in Suzhou (30 mins by bullet train), we were picked up by Mr Zhong in nice and clear car. We visited tourist spots in beautiful Suzhou 😍😍 In the afternoon we returned to train station to Shanghai. Thank you for Sunflower Tour, Ms Julia, Mr Zhong for giving us a wonderful experienced while in Suzhou. You have been good and memorable companions on this journey. I highly recommend this tour agent because you guys are professional and we are very comfortable with your service. Keep up the good work 😍😍 Xie xie… 👍👍🙏🏻
