What People Say of Regent China Tour

Dear Joy,

Thank you so much for coming to our Open House and sharing the China Experience with our members and friends. It was wonderful to have you with us. And now, my thoughts on the China trip:

As a rabbi, the Jewish Heritage China Tour held special meaning for me. Not only were the cities, the people, and all of the incredible sites, like the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Li River cruise so magnificent, but China's Jewish heritage was best of all. It was an honor to lead services for the Jews of Beijing and to share a Shabb at meal with the Jews of Shanghai. But most special of all was the overwhelmingly strong connection I felt with our Jewish family halfway around the world! Touring the two remaining synagogues of Shanghai, walking through the Hong Que ghetto, tracing the paths that our refugee brothers and sisters walked as they built their lives anew in this welcoming land -- these are memories I will cherish forever.

The China experience is a different experience, filled with unusual sounds, sights and smells. The entire tour, so well-organized and filled with so many wonderful things to see and do, gave me a perspective on the Chinese people, their culture and history, in a way that no other experience could have. Regent has worked hard to craft a
tour that gives us tourists such a rich experience that I left that beautiful country feeling more like a participant than a spectator. You helped me to immerse myself in all things Chinese and for that I am truly grateful.
