PhotoWalks was such a unique experience that left me and my fiance eager to go on another tour ASAP! We took the Back Bay tour with Saba. Saba is enthusiastic and truly knows her historic information and knows how to guide a vivacious tour that leaves you wanting to go on another! She is extremely knowledgeable about Boston and answered... More

A photo walk tour of Boston is a must for anyone who would like to specialize in a particular section of the city, learn the history of that area, and come away with some beautiful photos which Saba, the tour guide, will help you compose. Saba is a professional photographer who will show new and creative ways to compose your... More

It was a rainy day in Boston and my wife and I were the only 2 customers. A lesser tour operator may have cancelled, but Saba conducted an excellent and enthusiastic photo tour of the best sights along the Freedom Trail. She showed the best positions to shoot and gave examples of what to expect with actual photos taken by... More

A friend set this up for us (group of two married couples) as a private photo tour. We LOVED it! Saba was wonderful -- patient, professional, and very knowledgeable about the city and photography. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who enjoys photography, history, and a exploring a great city on foot.

We first did the Freedom trail tour with Saba. We met another couple that we really enjoyed and shared information with. We got so much history and great photography tips that we decided to book a private tour of Back Bay. Both tours exceeded our expectations. This will be on our list for sure when we return to Boston.

We so enjoyed our afternoon tour of the Back Bay with Saba! Felt like we were on a walk with an old friend. Saba is so knowledgeable both of the city and it's historical sites as well as of photography. She was able to explain things to me, a novice, in such a way that I understood and immediately showed... More

My 15 year old daughter and I did a tour of Beacon Hill and Boston Common with Saba. It was everything that I hoped it would be. Before our tour, Saba communicated with us and always answered emails. She was flexible with our arrangements and also agreed to do a tour with us on one of her days off. She... More

Our first impression of Saba came from a very thoughtful call, letting us know the others in the tour had cancelled and offering a tour site change if interested. I said we were mainly looking for great photos so she suggested a change to back bay. The second impression was a warm and energetic welcome after we arrived 30 min... More

I went on two tours with Saba in the same day. The first tour, around Back Bay, was just her and I, so I guess you could say I was a little spoiled. She did a great job of giving a little bit of history about every where we went and helping me understand better what settings of my camera... More

I had the opportunity to follow the North End tour with Saba last weekend and I was really pleased by my experience. This tour gave me the chance to learn about the history of the area, know how to better use my camera, find creative ways of photography composition and as a result get wonderful pictures. Saba is also a... More
