I'm sorry that you did not enjoy the tour, however your assessment of the photo talk is incorrect in that I do not give a lesson on the camera nor do I discuss camera functions. The tour is meant for all camera types from the...More

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed by the Greenwich Village tour, however your primary complaint seems to be that it was not the in-depth photography course for which you were hoping. Not only are the tours not meant to be an in-depth photography...More
