Pascal's enthusiasm was obvious and combined with his pictures and videos I felt like I was there.
Pascal presentation was engaging , energetic & knowledgeable presentation.?Portugal has been on my list fir a long while. Pascal’s description of places to study & visit- and what walks& hikes of interest was what I need to begin planning when we can travel again. Thank you.
Quality and enjoyment of lectures depend so very much on the quality of the lecturer. In this particular case, I find the lecturer, while very enthusiastic, is not up to the task. The photos he presented at class was of such poor quality and so few in number that I feel it was bothering on being unprofessional. Since I am paying $37.64 per class, I expect some decent lecture materials and quite in depth discourse. What I got, I felt, was a tour guide, picked out 5 photos from his iphone and tried to make a presentation out of those 5 photos with comments that were decidely touristy and not scholarly. Very very disappointed. I sincerely hope Context Travel will do quality contriol on their Conversations offerings. I have done 7-8 Conversations in the last week, most I enjoy, some has issues, none as unprofessional as this one. I felt cheated...and that's not a reaction I assocaite with Context Travels.
I appreciate getting an insider's view of the places I can't visit right now -- but that I hope to visit in the future.
I have enjoyed several of your Conversations in the past 3 weeks. Yesterday, I had to leave the Conversation after about 15 minutes because the connection was awful. Pascall was getting cut off and I could not follow. I would really appreciate a refund.
