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 an amazing experience. Dvar really knew his stuff. Incredible info on the tombstones and where some of them were found. If you want to learn about the history of Jewish life in Shanghai, this is the tour.
