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.
Great presentation but a bit short. Expected it to last until 6:30 but it ended at 6:10. That is pretty short for the price.
