If you enjoy photography, you will enjoy this tour. I learned so much about my camera and about night settings. The instructor was patient and gave me a tip sheet for future reference. I got some awesome shots and felt safe with her running around Paris at night. Even my husband, who is not a photographer, enjoyed the experience. I... More

Last evening I had my second photo tour with Better Travel Photos again. The reason I choose BTP again is because Elena is such a wonderful photographer. We met 2 years ago and it is so nice to meet Elena again. She taught me how to use my camera wisely while taking photos at night. The photos we took together... More

My husband and I booked Better Travel Photos for our honeymoon photo shoot in Paris and we were beyond pleased with the results. Our photographer, Elena, was punctual, professional and fun! She helped us feel at ease and as a result, our pictures were natural and spectacular! The turn around time to receive our photos was prompt. I love the... More

My friend, Maz, and I had a fabulous morning walking the streets of the Marais with Nadia. We learnt heaps about our cameras and how to use them and saw a part of Paris we would not have otherwise ventured into. We were very pleased with the photos taken that day and put our new knowledge to use for the... More

While I have taken a handful of photography workshops, one even through National Geographic no less, I learned more in my two photo tours (all-day session and a night session) with Nadia than I had in all the previous workshops I took combined!!! I consider myself an intermediate photographer and know my way around the features of a camera, but... More

(After years of using TripAdvisor, I finally signed up for an account just so I could leave this review of Better Travel Photos.) I’m a “serious amateur” photographer. I’ve taken a few private photo tours in the past and wanted to do so again in Paris since I only had a few days there and was traveling alone. I usually... More

I was in Paris for business meetings, but had a little time the day before my flight home and decided to take a photo tour with Better Paris (now Better Travel) Photos. I'm glad that I did. From my first contact with Better Travel, communication was prompt and helpful and the registration process was easy. It was nice to know... More

I usually hate Paris (and most European cities) this time of the year. So I looked for something that was going to make me excited. Elena was my guide and in no time, she got me taking really beautiful pictures with my Camera (I an super amateur). Let's just say she taught me in 1 hour stuff I doubt I... More

We were in Paris on a 2 week trip in Europe for my parents' 30th wedding anniversary and surprised them with this gift! Hermione was our photographer on one of the coldest days in April Paris had seen in awhile. She made the day fun as we went from Notre Dame, to the Eiffel Tower, to the Louvre. We had... More

Wow - what a great way to spend half a day. We were visiting Paris to celebrate our daughter's 12th birthday and as she had shown an interest in photography, thought this would be the ideal gift. From the moment Megan met Hermione, she was instantly at ease and her first lesson was understanding the different 'options' available on her... More
