  • It was just a magical experience! It had snowed 4.3 inches so trees were covered but roads overall cleared. We learned so much about angles and form with our phone camera. The homes are not to be missed! Halloween was the perfect tone to see beautiful decorations!! Great job!!!!

  • We enjoyed this tour. Saba took us to see the houses and streets of this very beautiful expensive neighborhood that we wouldn't see on our own. We also appreciated the history and fun facts. We wished it could be longer, the time just flew. However, as far as the photography goes, maybe it's good for the beginners, but if you are intermediate or advanced, it is not a photography class, where you will learn something new.

  • Saba was an amazing guide. The tour was on a freezing Saturday morning. Despite the bad weather, Saba didn't hesitate to take me all over Beacon Hill and not only narrate the history of the different buildings but also teach me how to take interesting photographs. I strongly recommend this tour.

  • Saba is fantastic, she went out of he way to accommodate our needs and took the tour with us even while it was snowing because we couldn't go at any other time, she made some great suggestions for shots, took us through a lovely area that she knows well, and is generally just a lovely person to spend time with. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys photography

  • I would gladly recommend this tour to photographers with any camera. To obtain the most from this trip, please have a camera wherein fine tuning can be made to focus, aperture, etc in order to capture all the shadows, and reflections offered.

  • This was amazing! Beacon Hill is so gorgeous and we got the most of it from Saba's insightful tour. Plus we got some of the best photos too!

  • I learned a lot about the neighbourhood and took beautiful photographs.

  • Your information about this tour is not 100% clear as it is sold as a walking tour but is more a walking tour for photographers. However, although it was not what we thought it was going to be it was an excellent tour with a very informative and knowledgeable guide who gave us lots of tips and my photographs for the rest of my holiday were certainly far better and more artistic and interesting plus I learnt a lot about Beacon Hill

  • Excellent; It was my favourite part of Boston ; The tour guide was not only knowledgeable about photography but Boston history add well. I learned a lot and loved it

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our photographic tour of this very historic and attractive part of Boston. The tour leader Saba was most interesting and knowledgeable - and pointed out creative and unusual ways of taking photos of the area. We thought it was very worthwhile for anyone who wants to wants to have great holiday shots.
  • This tour was very good.
  • THE TOUR WAS VERY SIMPLE. THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS GREAT BUT NOT EXTRAORDINARY. THANKS
