Yujin knows really much about architecture about old time. I went with her to Yuyuan (Yu garden) and she taught me so much about it. Thank you Jun I’d love your tour.

Jun is extremely knowledgeable about the chinese architecture on display in the old Shanghai city. While many people visit Yuyuan and enjoy it at face value, I felt that Jun provided a wealth of knowledge that I would not have been able to figure out or contextualize myself.

We were so glad to have a guide through the temple. There was so much meaning that we would've missed otherwise. It really set us up for a greater appreciation of everything else we did on our trip. Jun was very fun, patient, and knowledgable.

We had a great time in the Yu Garden area with Jun. She explained so much about the neighborhood and the signification of every detail we could see in the temple and the garden. Without her we wouldn’t have understood what we saw in the temple. She taught us where to look at and the meaning of every aspect of a Chinese garden. Now we are so happy we can understand symbols and metaphors that are present everywhere in the country. We recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about the Chinese culture.

Jun's tour was so very insightful. To listen to her historical and architectural knowledge about Yu Garden while walking this beautiful scenery is really a must. Visiting the City God Temple, there was so much to learn about ancient Chinese history and how it still influences modern culture. We were even lucky enough to witness a ceremony.

I have accompanied others to Yu Garden on tours, but the quality of Jun’s Chinese Architecture walk is of exceptional quality. She has deep knowledge on this topic and is a warm fun guide. We went on an extremely cold day and it was just the two of us. Despite this, she gave me the full tour and indulged all my questions. This experience combines architecture, history and Chinese philosophy. Highly recommend.
