You will see and learn more than you'd ever see or learn in all other tours combined. This is worth the time and money many times over.

There's not much to say that hasn't been said by prior reviewers. Wanted to post to let people know it's still a great tour. Worth it, even in cold December!

Dvir is a marvelous tour guide and teacher. You can hear his passion when he speaks. He combines Jewish history with Shanghai architecture. If you are only in Shanghai for one day, spend half a day on this tour.

Actually, the tour is to be arranged by a professional scholar of an academy, Center of Jewish Studies Shanghai. And the price is higher than other tours but totally worth it! The tour will cover some major sites related to the history back in 20s-40s of the 20th century.

My wife and I had been to Shanghai before and had gone to the Synagogue. On a return visit we weren't going to take any tour because "we had been there". I saw a note on another site about a "Jewish" tour of Shangai and because we had gone on our own the previous time we joined this tour. I'm... More

Dvir earned his many five star reviews. I doubt you can find the information learned thru the tour anywhere. If you want to understand why Shanghai is unlike any other Chinese city this tour is for you. On the way you can also learn about Jewish history in the last two hundred years thorough the world not just in Shanghai.... More

Learn about the history of Shanghai along with the history of the Jews of Shanghai! The 5 hour tour really did fly by -- and I felt like I learned a great understanding of the city and the Shanghai people. Dvir is an extremely knowledgable and understands how to engage his audience. I recommend highly!

I echo the sentiments expressed above! Dvir's Jewish Shanghai tour was fantastic! The history here is so interesting, and Dvir has unique insights, and an interesting style. He also has a very comprehensive view of the stories, which are obviously thoroughly researched. The five hours flew by! We were sad to say goodbye to Dvir!
