We were in a private tour in China and decided to have, in our free day, this tour. In the end, Dvir was our best guide in all trip! Knowledge, good histories, fantastic time!

I travelled to China with my family for two weeks. Dvir's tour of Jewish Shanghai was by far one of the best days of the trip! It was so interesting to hear about the Jewish presence in Shanghai. Dvir is incredibly knowledgeable and such a pleasure to listen to. He makes sure to engage all of the tour-goers and really... More

We loved the tour of Jewish Shanghai. It's a great introduction into historic Shanghai, as well as the Jewish history. We visited historic monuments, old parks and entered into old lanes. The tour was a little longer than we expected, so be sure to bring water and a snack.

Joined Dvir's tour of jewish Shanghai today and can only endorse what is said here - it was the most informative and clearly presented tour I have ever been on anywhere - and I learned more about 20th century jewish history in 3 hours with him than I ever learned in my entire school career which was spent at jewish...

This was the highlight of my visit to shanghai. Dvir, the tour guide, was knowledgeable, passionate, informative and extremely helpful with questions about not only this tour, but Shanghai in general and the logistics of our further travels. It is also worth visiting the Chabad of Shanhai - who recommended the tour, to see the strength of modern Jewish life... More

If you are interested in the Jewish life and history in Shanghai, Dvir's tour is an absolute must. Nobody is more knowledgeable, and it is hard to believe that anybody else can present the information in such a nonboring and interesting way. The tour visits the few very important Jewish sites, including the more ghetto-like sections-----as well as a stop... More

The tour is given by an Israeli journalist and, perhaps because of his profession, his comments and interesting and informative. It is not just a tour, but a history of the Jewish immigration to Shanghai, starting with the Iraqi Jews at the time of the Opium Wars, then the Russian Jews after the Sino-Russian Way, and finally the Jews of...

Having lived here 18 months now I have had the opportunity to take most of the tours here. This is probably one of the top two tours I have taken here. It's quite obvious the Dvir has a passion for the subject matter and has spent many hours researching the jewish history and bringing it to life for his guests.... More
