Owner description: Shanghai's Jewish legacy and experience. A half day eye-opening tour of an extraordinary story guided since 2002 by Israeli Journalist Dvir Bar-Gal. From the media: "Bar-Gal, rich with knowledge and full of humor, takes his visitors along on a mesmerizing journey into an amazing, sweet and sour world. A world where opium dealers, old world colonialists, real estate moguls, hard working poor Chinese migrants and Jewish holocaust survivors mix. "

Just want to thank you for a wonderful tour of Shanghai. You were most informative and gave a great presentation. We were all very impressed and in hindsight, regret not doing the full day tour. We wish you well and will definitely recommend you and Dvir if the opportunity arises. It was a pleasure meeting you and, again, thank you... More

It was a wonderful tour and engagement with the guide, Dvir Bar-Gal who helped us understand how the Jewish People left a rich legacy in Shanghai, as well as how and why the people from Europe came to China. Dvir's candid viewpoints and... More

Was a great tour of the history of Jewish migration to Shanghai.Dvir Bar Gal, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made it very interesting. It was not only a walking tour but he took us by van to the neighborhood where the jews lived. One of the best tours I have ever been too. Do not miss it.

The Tour Guide Dvir makes this tour. The passion and enthusiasm in which he delivers this tour in is amazing. Unfortunately a lot of the old jewish heritage is disappearing under the name of progress in Shanghai. What Dvir does very well is provide an oral history interspersed with historical jewish sites both past and present and weaving in a... More

I can't say enough about this unforgettable tour. Dvir takes you on a remarkable journey through the history of Shanghai and then focuses on the Jewish connection including the remarkable Jewish refugees in WW2. Its informative and entertaining - the four hours fly by like nothing. Dvir takes you to areas of Shanghai you would otherwise never reach.

In the afternoon we lunched at Tocks deli and then toured the old section outside of Yu gardens followed by a shopping spree in areas of the French concession that we would never have found. What...

Whether you are Jewish or not, this is a MUST DO when visiting Shanghai. David ( D'vor) gave us an insightful tour that was not just about the Jews in Shanghai, but an entire history lesson on the city. One of the highlights of our trip!
