We had an AMAZING time on this tour!! Saba is an incredible guide, and we not only learned about the history of Beacon Hill, but also how to take beautiful photos! She shared tips for how to get the best angle and perspective on the iPhone - definitely no experience necessary and you'll leave with gorgeous photos to remember your tour. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for those who want a fun and interesting way to explore a city.

It was just a magical experience! It had snowed 4.3 inches so trees were covered but roads overall cleared. We learned so much about angles and form with our phone camera. The homes are not to be missed! Halloween was the perfect tone to see beautiful decorations!! Great job!!!!

We enjoyed this tour. Saba took us to see the houses and streets of this very beautiful expensive neighborhood that we wouldn't see on our own. We also appreciated the history and fun facts. We wished it could be longer, the time just flew. However, as far as the photography goes, maybe it's good for the beginners, but if you are intermediate or advanced, it is not a photography class, where you will learn something new.

Saba was an amazing guide. The tour was on a freezing Saturday morning. Despite the bad weather, Saba didn't hesitate to take me all over Beacon Hill and not only narrate the history of the different buildings but also teach me how to take interesting photographs. I strongly recommend this tour.

Saba is fantastic, she went out of he way to accommodate our needs and took the tour with us even while it was snowing because we couldn't go at any other time, she made some great suggestions for shots, took us through a lovely area that she knows well, and is generally just a lovely person to spend time with. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys photography

I would gladly recommend this tour to photographers with any camera. To obtain the most from this trip, please have a camera wherein fine tuning can be made to focus, aperture, etc in order to capture all the shadows, and reflections offered.
