    This is a must while in Boston. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Boston public library enabled me with the guidance of Saba to take very impressive pictures. It was a perfect day!

    Our guide, Saba, took us to interesting places and taught us how to improve our use of our phone cameras. She showed us how to look at scenes with "new eyes" to see things in a very different way.

    This is the best walking tour I've taken anywhere. Our tour leader was a wonderful teacher, and my photos have really improved since I've taken the tour with her. I'm actually getting compliments from people on my cell phone photos now. I am so grateful! When I return to Boston, I'll probably take not just another, but a few more tours with this company. It's that good!

    Wonderful tour! Really enjoyed the photo tips and learned a lot about the area we visited. Saba is so knowledgeable. When return to Boston would try to book another one of her tours.

    Our tour guide, Seba , was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the city’s history. She has a great eye for beautiful photography and was an excellent teacher. I highly recommend this tour.

    Saba was a knowledgeable guide and photographer. She showed us so many wonderful spots to take pictures and where in that spot to get the best shot. All the while she also shared the in depth history of the areas we were photographing. There wasn’t a question that she was asked that she was unable to answer. It was a wonderful few hours.

    Saba was a superb guide, historically, socially, photographically all of it! We saw so many great sights in Boston and learned about our beautiful city in ways we never knew. Having her help with photography and advise us on photo taking was something that will live with me in the rest of my photo taking days as well. Thank you!
