Saba gave us a great insider's tour of Boston (who lives where, the history of buildings, what homes sold for) along with great photography advice. Even with my iPhone, my pics came out great!

My daughter, son, and I had a remarkable photography tour of Beacon Hill with Saba. She took us down streets where we would not have ordinarily visited while showing us some amazing photo opportunities. Saba worked very closely with my daughter throughout the tour, so she could better understand her camera and the various camera settings that enabled her to capture some remarkable photographs while expanding my daughter's passion for photography! Saba not only provided us with some amazing photography perspectives and opportunities, but she also shared the unique history about the Beacon Hill area. We will definitely book another tour with Saba...it was a fantastic experience!!

We travelled to Boston with our 11 and 13 year old children. We wanted them to get an initial understanding of the history of Boston (particularly the Freedom trail) but recognized that their attention span was limited. PhotoWalks of Boston was the perfect combination for us. Saba was able to "sneak" in tons of historical facts while teaching them how to take better travel photographs.

I highly recommend this tour.

You can see how much Saba loves providing history of the Boston area and showing how to take interesting photos. She provided the group with information on how to set the camera up and where to position the camera to capture interesting photos. We walked through the streets of Boston listening to her give us details of the area, while we were capturing moments on our camera. I highly recommend her tours and plan on attending another.

Saba is both an experienced and gracious tour guide, and an excellent instructor on the art of taking superb and artistic photographs. Her patience, kindness and expertise demystify the complexities of the modern digital camera and result in excellent and memorable photographs. Plus her knowledge of the hidden history of Boston and the Massachusetts Bay provide fascinating contexts for the photographs. I would highly recommend this to anyone interesting in capturing the heart and history of Boston through photography.
