More Actual Attendee Comments from Latest Presentations:

A+. A very well constructed, balanced, and entertaining narrative. Excellent use of many sources and visuals to explain the relevant timeline, geography, and historical figures. Clearly distinguished the sources, facts, conjecture, alternative interpretations, and personal opinion, when tying together a provocative theory that santorini could be Atlantis.

Superb presentations. It was clear the instructor is well versed in the subject matter.

I so looked forward to this class! The Powerpoint presentations were great and much more than just a "tour" discussion. Motivated me to return to Greece--booked a tour! 

A wonderful course with such a knowledgeable facilitator. I wish the course had been 6-weeks because Greek contributions are so abundant. Great balance of videos and discussion was effective.

James is a great ambassador of Greece. The class was one I anticipated every week!

Knowledgeable about Greek history, the culture and shares interesting stories.

First class & passionate about the topic.  James is great and engaging. 

James knows and lovingly shares his topic.  Enthusiastically presented with beautiful imagery. He is a treasure chest of knowledge.

Outstanding class. Good materials, leadership and discussions.
