We were in town on July 4th. The group was nice a small, allowing for information to be shared easily. We had a lovely walk from Boston Common along the Freedom Trail to Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market area. Learned some history and post visit found out we had some family connection to some of the places visited. Nice tips and suggestions for taking better photos with your camera, be it a cell phone or a digital point and shoot. Wished we were closer to Boston to take other Photo Tours with Saba

I took the Beacon Hill Tour.
I had the chance to be the only participent.
The person making the tour was really nice. She new a lot of details and stories about Beacon Hill.
It was really interesting to get advices for the places to take the pictures and some tricks , like reflections in the windows, ...
I think I would not have enjoyed that place as much if I hadn't been as well guided.

This type of tour is an original way to discover a place.

I recommend it!

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.
