Very knowledgeable guide with deep ties to the Jewish community in Rome.
Brenda Lee is amazing and full of so much knowledge in history and I would’ve spent the rest of the day with her if I could have. Very very knowledgeable and brought the history together with images
Brenda is a lovely and very knowledgeable person, and she went out of her way to be helpful in pointing out how best to get back to our hotel. But she had in mind what to tell us, and did not really listen particularly well or respond to our questions. She also had an overly directive sense of what we should photograph and where we should stand so she could photogaph us. She described her mission as "promoting" the Jewish Community of Rome, and that seemed by the end to be different to us than providing an informative and in depth explanation of a lot of historical ground that she tried to cover. We have taken many Context tours over the years, and this was among the least positive.
