About Me

I am experienced tour guide who has been in the industry for more than 17 years. Able to deliver a wide range of tours: outdoor tours to backpackers, immersion tours for company incentive tours, etc. In addition, I'm particularly good at finding hidden gems, no matter it's secret beautiful place like natural classical garden, or bars that with great view, tasty drinks but few people, or a fengshui master who sits beside the street but has been "proven" to deliver accurate truth of the future, I can incorporate them into the tour experiences. If you want a special, local and customize journey in China, I'll guarantee that you have a good one.

My Experiences

For me, I think tour guide as an occupation means more than taking people around to the touristy places, and explaining history behind. I reckon that a tour guide should be the connection between the traveller and the city they are visiting. We can shape their understanding through what they truly experience during the journey.

Architecture and history are my tools to connect with my visitors. I am particularly into L.E.Hudec and for each of the building he designed and lived in Shanghai, I can tell the behind-the-scene story that I promise nobody else can excel me. I'm also adept at Jewish history and art history. Join my tour if you have similar interests.
