This was a last minute booking for a private tour and they were able to accommodate me. My tour guide, Aura, was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. We met at an agreed upon location, where she gave me a few pointers in preparation for the day. Her technical skills are outstanding and I learned new things about my camera and photography. Aura went above and beyond after the tour and sent me typed notes with additional information. Overall great customer service, I highly recommend this company.

Thank you! It was a pleasure to meet you and so glad we got to put your tripod and ultra wide angle lens to good use.

Do This!!! I had a tour of Canada Place with Isabel and I enjoyed it immensely!!! I am an intermediate photographer and learned a lot from her that I had not been taught before by three other photo teachers.
I could have spent the whole wandering and taking pictures with her. Yes, she was taking pictures as well as teaching. Worth every cent!

I was traveling solo and I always look for opportunities to improve my photography skills. I consider myself a novice but when I travel I enjoy shooting, mostly wildlife and landscapes. With Aura I wanted help with city shots (2 hrs in the afternoon in Gastown) and night photography (also 2 hrs). She was amazing, a real pro who can adjust to your level of knowledge/skills. I learned some great tips to anchor me with A and S "walk-around" settings on my Nikon D90 and then play from there. Wasn't sure what to expect from the night photography, but we did cityscapes and bridges from Granville Island vantage point and I got some stunning shots with my tripod. GI is quiet at night! Aura also taught me reverse light painting at night, and other intentional camera movement shots for daytime. It was really both creative and technical, communication was clear, and she sent typed notes afterwards. I highly recommend Aura!

Aura knows all the best big tourist spots as well as sweet hidden places. She is a highly skilled, award winning photographer who will help you take home beautiful photographic memories of your travels. We met up in Paris and Aura led me and my daughter on a super interesting walk, telling us about Parisian history, pointing out notable architecture and even arranged for a mini fashion photo shoot of my daughter! It's always delightful to spend time with Aura.

First, let me state that we have been on over half a dozen photo tours. By far, we learned more and had the most fun and saw sights that we ever had done before. Aura is a great teacher (I'm fairly advanced, my fiance' novice and we BOTH absolutely benefited). I was able to learn new techniques, break habits, and improve both my technical and creative photography skills. We did both day and night private tours and had her full attention. We had so much fun and also saw areas of Vancouver we never would have seen. Highly recommend for someone (or couple or group) wanting to have a photo experience of Vancouver, learn techniques and become even more creative---all the while having a blast. Aura--THANK YOU for making our vacation, you were truly the highlight of our Vancouver experience and our knowledge you gave us will last a lifetime.

We 6 West Australians spent 6 hours with Erik from Vancouver Tour Guys on a walking tour of Vancouver yesterday. Couldnt have chosen better. Received an email from Erik the evening before introducing himself and asking for some details on our group. During the tour it was obvious he had done his homework in tailor making our day out. We learnt a lot about Vancouvers history as well as what the plans are for the future. Had a great lunch at the Dockside Restaurant on Granville Island. Certainly a 10 out of 10 day thanks Erik.

We enjoyed a full day tour with the wonderful Aura and her well-planned (but flexible) itinerary. The tour took us to many terrific spots in Vancouver. Aura shared her tips and recommendations throughout the tour, helping us to make the best of capturing the sites, as well as the unexpected. The day was planned to make best use of the light, culminating in a night shoot on the water, where I got my best shots. Aura was patient and helpful, and her critiques included both positive reinforcement and suggestions for other ways to take the shot. She taught us techniques I will no doubt continue to follow. Aura was a joy to be with, very personable and knowledgeable. I wouldn't hesitate to book another photo tour with her if we are ever in town again. I really enjoyed our photo day together.

Aura taught us so much more about photography, about the use of our camera and about producing creative photos than we could have imagined. Patient, funny, knowledgeable. And she certainly knows her city, amazing Vancouver. We cannot speak highly enough of her and her work. You won't be disappointed.

I had signed up for photo tours in San Francisco, Budapest and many other major destinations around the world, I am giving top marks to Aura's Vancouver tour. Though it was only for short duration around the 'blue hour' but it was efficient, totally fun as well as educational. No wasted time in looking around for a perfect shot. Getting the right composition and exposures etc..for difficult night scenes was a breeze. She even drove me to another iconic spot per my request. I appreciated the flexibility. I have gotten so many fantastic pictures, some of which are hanging around my house and had generated many praises from friends and family. I highly recommend this photo tour for anyone since results counts !!
