I love Context and have done numerous tours with you in several cities, but if this had been my first tour with Context I probably would not try again. Gil is a lovely person but he was not an effective leader/guide. The tour was essentially an experience of visiting various places and hearing decontextualized stories of what happened at that site. The sites were not in any particular order that went along with the chronology of the Revolution and Gil did not at any point provide such a chronology. So the experience of the tour was totally disjointed. At the end, I honestly could barely recall anything he had told us because he did nothing to connect the dots. It was a very frustrating experience with a lovely young man. But I don't think he should be a guide, especially not for Context.
Marie is articulate, knowledgeable and friendly. She was well prepared. Some reading materials for prior or subsequent to the tour would be helpful. We will try subsequent tours!
Marie was an outstanding guide--well-informed, prepared and personable. She clearly explained the complicated causes and timeline of the Revolution and added many entertaining and important details to give a full picture of the period. I hope I'll be able to take another of her tours in the future.
