Dora was so knowledgeable and very receptive to questions. I really did not know much about Cold War Berlin but was able to glean quite a bit of understanding about what it was like to live through these times on both sides of the wall. It was fascinating to travel between both sides which today look very similar to an outsider like me but to have someone who could point out the subtle differences in architecture that characterized how the soviets went about rebuilding the city vs west
John was personable, interesting and extremely knowledgeable. A very enjoyable tour experience.
Wow! What a great tour! Chris provided such an amazingly interesting perspective on Berlin, the Cold War, and Reunification. All my previous Context tours have taught me interesting facts and angles I didn't know before, but Chris' tour today was one that really made me think, question "facts" I thought I understood, and appreciate aspects of Berlin's and its residents experiences that I never even imagined before. Really eye-opening!
