"This was an excellent overview of Berlin which will help me in planning my upcoming trip there. Dr. Ballard is very knowledgeable about the city. He delivers the material in a personable, easy-going manner"

"I really enjoyed my “visit” to Berlin. Most people have seen pictures of landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate (and I enjoyed seeing them today), but I really enjoyed learning about the neighborhoods, hotels and restaurants and the history."
