Our Experience with Tracy Lesh Tours:
Tracy is an American who has been living in China for four years. Initially, she lived in the southern province of Guangdong where she taught English and studied Cantonese. She subsequently moved to Shanghai, switched her language focus to Mandarin, and took advantage of the city's foreign-friendly environment to pursue her interest in Chinese culture. After several years of studying the local culture, she was eager to share her knowledge, and began offering classes and tours to both foreign expats and visitors. She is well-versed on Shanghai's most popular tourist attractions, but feels passionate about introducing off-the-beaten-path locales to those who have seen the usual points of interest. As she is moderately fluent in Mandarin, she enjoys conversing with locals, and shares their stories with her guests. In this way, her guests overcome common misconceptions about the Chinese culture, and learn that China's citizens share the same hopes and dreams as the rest of the world.
Her daughter recently graduated from Shanghai American School and is studying at the University of South Florida. In her spare time, Tracy enjoys traveling with her husband, volunteering for Shanghai Sunrise, and exploring new terrain in the city's ever-expanding subway system.
