Dora was extremely knowledgeable and thorough in her explanation of the history of the Cold War, the cultural differences between the sectors and the aftermath. Her supplemental presentation of photos and maps also helped with a true understanding of the events of the time. She was extremely engaging. I highly recommend her.
The tour was well conceived. Nina made cityscapes that might otherwise pass by unnoticed come alive for us as contending parties in a debate. The major drawback to the tour was something she could not control, an excessively hot day. I appreciated her bringing water with her.
We had a fantastic day with John. He was clearly a clever man and so knowledgable. We adored every second and it was over long before we were ready!
