What Our Clients are Saying

“I’ve wanted to visit the Uffizi for years and now I probably will not be able. However the wonderful analysis of the various Renaissance paintings was more in depth than my personal visit would have been. I learned so much about these paintings and their artists.”

Patricia, Florida, USA

I now have a new lease on how to enjoy travelling during the Pandemic epoch!!...I can now have something to look forward to each and everyday.

Margot, Brazil

I think I learned more about the historical context of the city in the last two hours than I did when I was physically in Venice. That really surprised me.

Steve, California, USA

I have been in the Sistine Chapel 5 times but never learned as much as I did today.

Laurel, Canada

I’ve found the experience very interesting and stimulating. From the questions that I’ve received...I’ve got the precise feeling that the people attending where far beyond the level of our usual customers. I’ve received questions that nobody asked in 28 years!”

Cecilia, Roman Art Historian & Context Scholar

A quick note to say how much I enjoyed the online lecture this morning. COVID19 has interrupted our travel plans to Normandy and Munich. It’s a great escape to attend a travel lecture until travel can resume. Jeremiah was very interesting and engaging on Zoom. I look forward to trying more of your online lectures while I am homebound in Dallas, Texas.

I just finished my session with Luca Zagia on Venice. It was FANTASTIC! He is an awesome guide and the talk was super interesting. Even though I have been to Venice and taken a number of different walks with Context tour guides in the city I think I learned more about the historical context of the city in the last two hours than I did when I was physically in Venice. That really surprised me.

I attended the Parthenon lecture this morning. It was excellent and I love this format. Great idea and I will be tuning in on more of them. Thank you for this -- really brightened my day. Stay safe.

Just attended the Goya/Picasso Art Dialogue given by Marta Beriso... It was wonderful! Beautifully delivered. Ms. Beriso gave a perfect balance of the history that inspired these works and the technique applied to present the artist’s vision. I particularly learned from her visual division of Guernica so thoroughly explained and/or questioned.
I hope Ms. Beriso will be available online soon with new topics. She’s fabulous!
