Aaron's friendly and inclusive manner made the tour very enjoyable. He had a wealth of knowledge and successfully conveyed it in a conversational style, always allowing additional questions. He also allowed flexibility in the tour when we expressed interest in seeing specific areas.
It was an excellent tour. Thanks as always.
Last week I had 2 Context tours in Sydney. This week I had a Context tour in Melbourne. My objective was to find out how the 50,000+ British convicts of Sydney who founded Melbourne. WOW !! I was totally wrong. Sophie was GREAT !! She laid out the facts PERFECTLY !! Sydney has nothing to do with founding Melbourne.,More than a half of a century Melbourne was founded by no convicts. Sheep herdsmen and gold diggers both British and Asians made Melbourne the city it is today. Just as Big, Wealthy and as Beautiful as Sydney. The two cities each have 20% of the total population of Australia. Thank you Sophie for helping me learn the real history of Melbourne. LuvYa Jennifer/ Jim
