Context organizes scholar-led walking tours of Berlin that are capped at six people maximum. The aim is to create an in-depth learning experience with a lot of back and forth between the participants and the guide, who is usually a university...more
I was recently in Berlin with my adult children. We had the good fortune to have an exceptional guide, named Dora, take us on a tour titled, The Story Of Berlin. She was full of such wonderful information and made every stop come to life...More

My family and I have done two tours with Context in Berlin, and have been thrilled with the experience both times. Our guides, Aaron and Sven, were truly enthusiastic about their areas of expertise, and were knowledgable enough to answer questions and provide information that...More
My husband and I, along with our son and daughter-in-law spent a few days in Berlin in late March. We scheduled 3 private tours through Context, and all of them were absolutely fabulous. Our guides were Finn, Chris and Aaron. They were all extremely knowledgeable...More
Despite freezing cold weather and a biting wind, we had a great tour of the Jewish experience in Berlin with Finn. We were able to have some time for an interactive dialogue while sipping coffee in a warm restaurant and the rest of the time...More
Berlin greeted us with a snowstorm and sub-freezing temperatures for the morning of the tour. Our guide Finn effectively conducted the tour by alternating between indoor discussions of the history and context and outside walks to see the sights we had been discussing. Our conversations...More
Our tour with Finn Ballard was excellent. Finn had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of the wall. He used a tablet to add informative material. He was a very pleasant guide and we would unhesitatingly recommend him and the tour.

Since I was the only person to sign up, I paid for two people. My money was well spent. My guide, Sven Baumann Hernández, knew the subject very well and tailored the content to address my particular interest. Most important, he made me think.

Hi there Deb,
Great to hear that your time with us in Berlin sparked your curiosity. That's exactly what we and our docent guides aim for on every tour. Looking forward to having you back with us in one of our Context cities!
My husband and I love history and had researched our trip to Germany long before we arrived in Berlin. Even with this preparation, Finn Ballard, our Context tour guide, provided a depth of history, insight and made sure we saw things that we would never...More
We took the Berlin Art Scene tour led by Jason and were very happy with the tour and the amount of information he packed into our time with him. He was flexible and let our interests and preferences direct the tour. Based on our Berlin...More
No Berlin neighbourhood is more popular with the young and jet-set crowd than the old worker's district of Neukölln. With so many Turkish settled here, the area became known as “Little Istanbul“. Today the percentage of foreigners is still high and visitors 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
Westerstrasse or at Maybachufer, having a beer and waving to the sightseeing boats as they float by. But at night, Neukölln is dominated by increasingly young, alternative, and international crowds. This is particularly evident in the northern section of the district where there are many bars, funky clubs, galleries and restaurants. There, the night never seems to end.

Hi Carol, we've just spotted your question - sorry about that! We are strong believers in experiencing a city on the ground, up close and personal. Failing that, there's a city bus route in Berlin, #100, that drives past many of the well-known sights. It's a nice way to see the city from a local perspective. Let us know if you come back to Berlin!
