Tour guide was Finn, and he gave us a great tour with history and present day ramifications. Context Tours are usually well-done with more depth than the usual city tour and this was no exception.

4 of us spent an awesome 4 hours with Aaron Birchenough walking in Berlin. His knowledge, energy and humor bought the old and new Berlin to life as we strolled this history packed city! Can’t wait for our Berlin Wall tour tomorrow again with Context!

still frequent the Turkish shisha bars. In the
daytime, they also visit the designer shops and sit by
the canal in one of the street cafés up and down
