About Me

I’m not what most people think of when they think of a “tour guide.” My unique approach to leading tours is that you come first. I see my job as making sure you are as happy as possible during your time in Shanghai, and I customize the itinerary of each client to match their needs and interests.

I love art, food, and culture, and especially like to lead food and cultural tours, but I can lead you anywhere as long as it is what you want. Unlike most tours in Shanghai, you won’t be stuck in tourist-trap silk factories or gift shops at any point during your time with me!

My Experiences

My favorite tours are the more rustic and exploratory type. I can show you the best local Xiao Long Bao, lead you to the most beautiful Victorian homes tucked away in the French Concession, or show you the best of Shanghai’s traditional and modern art scenes. Like New York City, Shanghai is the kind of place that is best experienced by wandering the streets and natural exploration. With me guiding the way, you know that you’ll get to see the best of what this huge metropolis has to offer, so all you have to do is enjoy yourself!
