Although I have previously taken part in quite a few seminars with Context, this was my first live virtual tour and I was not disappointed. Dr Fleisher knows (and loves!) her city well and that made the visit both informative and pleasant. This was as close you can get to the real thing and as such very appreciated.
This was a fascinating mix of scenic street views, lovely historic buildings and expert descriptions of those buildings. I also enjoyed Dr. Fleischer's straightforward, no nonsense view of her city and its history. This was a real treat!
Of all the context lectures I’ve taken Dr Fleischer is one of the top 3. Her live tour was no different, and she ably led us through Amsterdam talking, walking and holding camera/video while managing the chat function...in the rain! As an Amsterdam native Dr Fleischer has an encyclopedic knowledge of her city which she shared with us. I liked that she showed a map and outlined in red exactly where we would go and afterwards showed the map again of where we had virtually walked, so that’s was a bonus feature. Already signed up for and can’t wait for her next virtual Amsterdam tour!
A wonderful journey through the streets of Amsterdam - even though it was raining, Alette took us on a great virtual tour of Amsterdam's Old Town, showcasing the architecture and the local life of the area. Alette is a terrific tour guide and I look forward to her next virtual tour.
It was a very nice, informative and entertaining tour, even for me as a resident of Amsterdam and knowing the old town so well. Dr. Fleischer is a great narrator and guide. Looking forward for the next tour through my city!
