I read the Tripadvisor reviews of this tour. I was excited even though I saw a few instances of no one showing up and refunds not provided. I didn't think that that would happen to me, but that is exactly what happened. I paid - they have absolutely no problems accepting payment (smile), but they definitely did not show up.... More

I had the great good fortune to take a night photo tour of Amsterdam with this firm. Adelina was my guide, and just like many of the photographers writing here, I was the only customer. Adelina couldn't have been more professional, informative, or patient. With her knowing the most photogenic spots, I covered more possibilities with her than I could... More

I had a free evening in Amsterdam on business trip. I had my camera and tripod with me (for just such a possibility) and through a friend's referral came across Tom. He had a very pleasant 3-hour, patient, relevant walkabout clearly in his head that was perfect. He is a very good photographer full of both good art and technical... More

I was fortunate enough to be the only photographer on my tour and thus was able to have one-on-one instruction with my tour guide Tom. He was very helpful in explaining the functions of my digital SLR to take improved nighttime photos that I needed to take it to the next step from point and shoot photography. The route that... More

Originally I was wondering that after taking pictures for 30+ years, including working at Kodak in its glory days, whether taking a photographer’s tour of Amsterdam would be worthwhile. Petrina met me promptly at 09h30 at Rembrandt Square and she combined both history of the city along with sharing her perspectives about taking good pictures. I learned how to not... More

Was very excited about photo tour in amsterdam.Read all the reviews, was a hard decision between this company and photo safari, unfortunately chose wrong. Made the reservation the morning before, was a little worried with only a 24 hr notice, but the reservation went through and paid in full with paypal at the time. It said I would be getting... More

Considering that my guide was a professional photographer with extensive experience, the tour was a great value (plumbers charge more per hour !). Plus, Tom was super nice, patient, and made me feel very comfortable. The tour never felt rushed, and it ended when we were done, rather than at an exact time. Great experience! I'd highly recommend it. I... More

I recently stepped up from a point-and-shoot to dSLR camera and was still getting used to my new camera. Adelina was excellent at demystifying how to use my camera controls and how best to compose my shots. She had a good structure to the tour with enough flexibility to address my needs. She even took a slight detour to the... More

Initially there was an almost communication breakdown. Tom was supposed to meet me at Rembrandt Square, instead of him, Adelina showed up. The office seemed not to know and sent me an apology (my phone did not work in Holland, only data service) and offer for refund to which I replied: 'Tour Guide showed up, was a great tour...' Apart... More

I spent an evening with Adelina shooting central Amersterdam. She is friendly, and an excellent teacher. I learned a great deal and captured some of the best images ever. Highly recommended.
