Dvir was a fantastic guide. Extremely knowledgable and professional. The tour was fascinating and very interesting. A piece of history that everyone should learn about. Definitely the highlight of our stay in Shanghai. We were taken to different sites by comfortable vans. My husband did this tour on a previous business trip to Shanghai and was so impressed that he did it for the second time with me.…

This tour was excellent in every way. Dvir was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. The day moved seamlessly from one stop to the next both walking and using minivans.

Anfisa and Dvir give a great tour filled with interesting information! The Jewish population of Shanghai is not what one normally hears about when looking into Shanghai history but it is such a worthy thing to learn about.

Dvir Bar-Gal was a most knowledgeable guide. We learned so much about the Jewish history in Shanghai. We knew about the WWII community, but did not know anything about the 2 prior migrations of Jews that came from Iraq and Russia. The gravestone project, shown in the video, was so interesting and compelling. I wish we had had more time in the Jewish Museum - we were rushed and did not get to really experience the exhibits. Only other suggestion is for Dvir to speak more slowly. He has so much information to share - it's hard to absorb it all because he speaks very fast. Wonderful tour all in all - highly recommend it.…
