    We had a great time! Picked up on time by our private coach, given tips on how to barter with local merchants (they can be tough negotiators). All in all it was good to have someone that made sure you weren’t taken advantage of and was able to save you time getting to the best locations. great experience

    It was so fun. The guide contacted me beforehand and asked what i wanted to buy. Shanghai is big, and it is devided by different shopping sections, so it helped her to plan. I had an amazing time, and we saw different parts of the city. She took me to some local spots where i could buy chopsticks, jewellery and some art. We went to the art district and she helped me to the post office where i could post cards to the family at home. My highlight of the whole trip was that i bought an lipstick which was created in the store. I picked the colour, the casing and watched as they made it.

    Sunny was very nice and knew places to go for bargains. She will also help you negotiate pricing. My major complaint is that I told her ahead of time that I wanted to look for an antique mah-jong set from China. She did not where to go to find an antique set or a nice set of mahjong game. She only knew where to go for very inexpensive sets which are sold in most tourist shops. I wished she had told me that before our tour then I would have set lower expectations for my private shopping trip or allow have more time to search on my own.

    Sunny is great! She called us the day before the tour and asked us what we were looking for at the market. She also recommended we bring either clothes we loved or pictures of the clothes we might to have made. From the pictures alone she lead us to vendors who have made those sort of items for her past clients. She also asked us for help in vetting a vendor when my other half fell in love with a jacket at a booth Sunny had never dealt with before. The vendor knew Sunny by reputation alone and Sunny was able to negotiate a fair price for the jacket. She then followed up with us the next day after we had picked up our clothes to ensure we were happy with the items. Great resource, fun person and tuff negotiator on our behalf. Will definately be calling upon her services the next time we are in Shanghai.

    We requested specific and varied shopping objectives. Sunny took us to vendors for pants, pearls, and eyeglasses with whom she had worked in the past. We got good pricing from these vendors with a minimum of haggling, and the quality of the final product was excellent. Sunny also helped us negotiate for sweaters and jackets which were not part of our original objective, and provided expertise about what we should expect to pay for other items.

    Without Sunny, we would have chosen pants and eyeglass vendors essentially at random from among dozens of vendors. Who know what the quality would have been or the price we might have paid?

    I had just two days in Shanghai, so besides sightseeing, I wanted to fit in a little shopping in a fun but efficient way. This 1/2 day tour with sunny Sunny was perfect! I'd heard you could get custom made clothing turned around quickly, so Sunny took me to an excellent tailor, helped with negotiations after I picked out my fabric and voila, two lovely new silk dresses based on a simple but favorite dress that I brought with me and delivered to my hotel next morning. She also took me to a nice pearl shop and helped with haggling there as well. She is an upbeat, lively and lovely person and a pleasure to spend time with and learn from. I also found it helpful to educate myself about items I was interested in, i.e. good quality pearls, before my trip so I could bargain more confidently. Negotiation is a must in Shanghai and Sunny is a great shopping partner!

    We took our 2 teenage daughters on a 4 hr shopping tour with Sunny, hitting the Pearl Market and Fabric/Tailor markets. We had a blast, and Sunny's help was fantastic! We would never have been able to do this without her. She helped us negotiate for a cashmere winter coat for my daughter, a silk dress, and several custom made shirts for my husband. She also helped us pick high quality, fresh water pearl earrings for both girls at very reasonable prices. She has a wonderful, positive attitude and was a real pleasure to meet. If you are looking for a great shopping guide, look no further. Sunny was terrific!
