Tour of Jewish Shanghai led by a Jewish History Expert
  • Tour of Jewish Shanghai led by a Jewish History Expert

    Learn about Shanghai's extraordinary Jewish heritage and experience on this half-day tour led by a Jewish history expert. The tour will take you to various sites of significance to Shanghai's Jewish community and will provide a comprehensive historical tale spanning 3 waves of Jewish immigration to Shanghai. Led by a Jewish expert residing in Shanghai, the tour is a mesmerizing journey into an amazing sweet and sour world where opium dealers, old world colonialists, real estate moguls, hard working poor Chinese migrants and Jewish holocaust survivors all mix. Join this tour for an interactive look at Jewish culture and history in Shanghai.

    Meet your guide at the Peace Hotel (formerly the Cathay Hotel, built by Sir Victor Sassoon) on Shanghai's famous Bund riverfront. Take in magnificent views of the city as your guide discusses in length the Baghdadi-Jewish legacy of the city.

    After that, your guide will take you to the Hongkou district, also known as the Shanghai Ghetto. In the Hongkou district, you will visit various places including the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum (Ohel Moshe Synagogue) and a monument in Huoshan Park. In addition, your guide will take you to explore the back lanes of the district and to visit a Chinese home where Jewish refugees used to live.

    Over the course of the tour, your guide will discuss the cultural and commercial contribution of the Russian Jewish immigration at the turn of the century and the Jewish experience in Shanghai under the Japanese occupation during WWII. This is not just a superficial glance at the highlights of Jewish life in Shanghai. It is a four-hour, a mini-course led by an expert guide with encyclopedic knowledge and intense passion that brings to life a vanished world and attracts visitors from every continent.

      This was one of the very best tours that we have ever taken in 40 years of traveling. Dvir made the whole Jewish experience in Shanghai come alive. It is described as a walking tour, but in reality he arranged for us to sit periodically for extended explanations. There are also vans to transport the group over the longer distances. Whether you are Jewish or not - do not miss this tour

      Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The guide is a passionate expert on the topic of the history of the jews in Shanghai who speaks fluent English. It is a great way of seeing some of the history of Shanghai that you would otherwise be largely unaware of.

      Dvir is one of the best walking tour guides I have come across. He is knowledgeable, has a dry sense of humour and generous. I we t on his tour 11 years ago, and returned - nothing like repeat business as a recommendation. We followed up the Jewish tour the next day with the Old City/New City tour. He takes us to places to places one would not go to alone.

      Andy's was amazing! We learned so much about Jewish immigration to Shanghai during WW2 and the history of Jewish settlement before then. We had a tour of the Jewish museum and a wall through of the area that was previously the Jewish ghetto and now housing local residents. Very illuminating and memorable. Highly recommended tour by a wonderful and knowledgeable guide.

      We met Dvir for a half day tour of the Jewish Ghetto . We are so glad that we came a day early for our tour of China with the express purpose of taking this tour. Dvir was extremely knowledgeable and gave a thorough lecture in which you learn so much. We started at the Bund prior to going to the Jewish quarter and the logistics were smooth. I highly recommend this tour.

      This was a comprehensive 4 hour tour which was very informative. It included visits to a former synagogue which is now a museum, the former Jewish ghetto and a home in the ghetto. Our guide provided a thorough history and was very knowledgeable about the events that had occurred. It was a very worthwhile tour and experience.
