Sunny Tours helped arranged a great tour that covered the highlights of Suzhou while understanding that my parents couldn't do aggressive and long walking. We managed to see the impressive Master of Net Garden, have a quick peek at the Tiger Hill (Pagoda), took a boat ride along the Grand Canal, and took a walk along Shanhgtang Street. The Bullet Train ride was also very smooth and fast. Might recommend that you try to do the tour by car to have more time to explore. Although it takes longer to get to Suzhou, you will have more flexible.

Comfortable 6 seaters car for our 2 hours ride Shanghai to Suzhou. Went to The Master Net Garden, historical beautiful garden and the details were well explained by Rita, our guide 👍. Boat ride across canal, viewing The Venice of Asia. Delicious Suzhou cuisine lunch.

I went to this Suzhou private day tour with my teenage son. The tour guide Annie was extremely helpful during the entire trip, helping us navigate through various sights and was very accommodating to our requests. The tour was organized to ease many of the restrictions for foreign visitors. We really enjoyed the trip and highly recommend it.

Though it’s with light drizzle during some parts of the trip, but Suzhou is still very beautiful with the rain in Spring. Our guide Ruby is knowledgeable with good details of each place and the trip is well arranged. I will recommend this tour.
