“Phototour in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

Hello everyone,

I can only recommend this phototour. It was a birthday present to my father who is very keen of photography. The tour includes a nice walk through beautiful, non-touristic areas of Amsterdam. With the help of our guide (Medina), he could learn more about special functions of his camera, how to layout pictures and what functions work in what conditions. Although the weather was rather rainy, the whole phototour was a huge success. The pictures turned out beautiful and my father received advice and more information to improve his hobby even more.

It was nice that a non-photographic person could join the tour (me in this case). Medina was an excellent guide. She gave the right advice, knows everything about functions on cameras and knows how to explain their purpose. She managed to explain basic knowledge to me and more advanced information to my father.

I can really recommend this tour for photographic keen persons.

Cheers,
Sandra

“A great way to get to know Amsterdam!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012 via mobile

I did a 5 hour tour with Tom on my first day in Amsterdam, which was a great way to learn the city. Tom showed me some of the best places to shoot and taught me some new photographic techniques, and I used this new info a lot during my week in the city. The tour also included a bike ride out to see the windmill and Ij brewery, as well as a trek thru the Jordaan area. It was also extremely interesting to talk with Tom about Dutch culture. Highly recommended!

“A Photo Mamory Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

With our guide Tom, we had a fantastic 3 hour Photography Tour through a nice part of Amsterdam! He showed us the beautiful places and things, to make special pictures of it. And also he gave very good advices how to handle the camera in some circumstances.
We learned a lot and have made many nice pictures from the canals, the bridges, house boats, buildings and of course the bicycles.When you look through the camera, you see a lot more in a different way.
We had a great time and enjoyed it very much!
You must do it too!
