Fabulous Tour

We loved our three hour ghetto tour. We were looking forward to it and it was the highlight of our visit to Shanghai. Mason was terrific. Both my husband and I learned a lot about that era and the life of the Shanghai Jews. Well worth our time and we strongly recommend the tour and our tour guide, Mason. Shelley Berkley
Great Tour of the Jewish Ghetto & Museum

We did the tour with Sunny on the last day of a 17 day trip to China. 4 couples had various departure times so we needed a shortened tour that ended earlier. Sunny put a great tour together for us. It was about 2 hours long, which was long enough to see the Jewish Museum and Ghetto area. We were in the area before the Jewish Museum opened and she gave us a tour of a Buddhist Temple nearby which was interesting. Her driver picked us up and returned us to our hotel. I highly recommend her.

Jewish Ghetto and Museum

Excellent tour highly recommend.

Our guide Sunny was super knowledgeable and informative. His client service was amazing taking us into parts of Shanghai where the refugees from the Holocaust lived and worked.

The tour also included a comprehensive tour of the Bund with visits to all the important buildings relevant to Shanghai when Holocaust refugees were given sanctuary by the amazing Chinese community.

Jewish museum had interesting artifacts and great information.

This tour is highly recommended.
Wonderful Tour

We had friends visiting Shanghai and wanted to share this amazing and important historical site. Our guide, Mason, was amazing. He is polite, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable in this area. We learned so much and left with a much deeper understanding of the history of Shanghai adn the Jewish people who came here to escape Nazi Germany. We had the added benefit to tour the surrounding neighborhood to get an ever better understanding of life at this point in time during WW II. Thanks Mason for a great tour. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
