My adult niece and I booked a photowalk on a Saturday in June. The other people who had booked cancelled so we were fortunate to have a private walk. Saba is delightful! Not only is she patient, moved at a comfortable pace, gave clear instructions, and used her own camera to demonstrate, but she is knowledgeable with regard to the... More

We had a group of six (two from out of state and four local area) and we did the Harborside tour. Saba is knowledgeable about the area and knows some great locations to frame your shots that you would not normally see. The pace is nice, not hurried or rushed but not too slow either. She gives other camera tips... More

We were looking for an experience to demonstrate just how much could be learned on a thoughtfully designed walking tour and Saba's PhotoWalk did this perfectly. The mix of historical narrative and photography advice (which was adjusted from novice to expert depending on who was asking the question) was impressive. Highly recommended!

I thought I knew Boston inside and out but Saba gave me a different perspective and an eye for the little things. Making the transition from cell phone photographer to a real camera is a bit scary. Saba helped make the complex simple and kept my focus (pun intended) on what matters. The tour and the follow-up guide are a... More

What a great way to spend a couple of hours in Boston! We had a wonderful time with Saba on her Back Bay tour that starts at the public library. What a wealth of information she is! Historian, Photographer she gives a great background story to every spot we stopped at and lots of great tips at photographing each site.... More

We have visited Boston many times. Because of my new interest in photography ,my husband and I decided that taking a guided photo walk along the Boston waterfront would provide us with a different Boston experience. We were right. Our walk was led by PhotoWalks founder, Saba. Saba has extensive photography experience and also knows much of Boston's history. It... More

A great tour, Saba was very informative and recommended many great photos around the Back Bay area which I would not have taken if I had not gone on this tour. Also emailed a very useful guide following the tour.

This is my second review of PhotoWalks of Boston with Saba. And my third tour. Loved this one, as the tulips were in bloom, the swan boats were active, and the photo ops were abundant! Saba is ever patient, helpful, and as always, sees what our untrained eyes aren't seeing. She really helps significantly with photo composition, and for many,... More
