Francais was a great teacher and guide. Good use of a spare afternoon on a business trip to get the see the picturesque part of The City while being taught the technical and artistic tips for taking a good picture of well known landmarks.

Français was a great guide and teacher through out NYC. Although we already had knowledge of our cameras he then was able to focus more on composition. ...... ..

Very good afternoon. Guided by Gildo we enjoyed the tour. Didn't do as many of the sights as I expected we stayed within in couple of blocks of the meeting place. The information and guidance was excellent with a lot of emphasis on perspective, which allowed you to work with the scenes presented in the city. Gildo taught us a... More

I did the SOHO photo tour with Francois who was excellent. He gave tips on how to make the most of the weather conditions (bright sunny day with harsh light). He taught me how to see things differently, to find interesting features in an everyday street scape, and "make something out of nothing". Thanks Francois. I hope to see you... More

Photo tour of SoHo with Francois was pretty amazing. I am a beginner at photography, so I was learning both the techniques and the artistic aspects. Francois was very helpful, patiently answering my questions and helping with manual camera settings and positioning. Combined with very knowledgeable narration about NY city history and architecture, this tour was truly unique NYC experience.... More

Jean Francois was very helpful and inspiring. He helped us to see NYC from a different perspective. His tips and suggestions brought our photos to life. Bring your walking shoes! We recommend planning some time before the tour to visit B&H Photo (at the meeting spot). The store has everything a photographer needs.

Excellent tour guide and photographer, that's Michael. Very knowledgeable in history of CentralPark and showed us how to take some great pictures of famous spots in the park. It even snowed while we were there and Michael was patient as we enjoyed the snow.Thoroughly enjoyable. Halima Nazeer, Johannesburg, South Africa

We signed up for Citifari's night photo tour on the third night of our Christmas vacation to New York and had a wonderful experience. I am fairly experienced as a photographer but learned many new perspectives on the art with Pro, Jean Francois. He took us to places I hadn't seen before and inspired us to see the world through...

Francois was our host and honestly made the trip. He was both informative about the area and gave great advice on how to best capture SOHO on my wife's new SLR camera. A wonderful experience and a true highlight of our week long stay in NY. We hadn't explored much of SOHO and this was the perfect way to do... More

I went on the NY landmark tour with Francois on Dec. 20. Being experienced with the manual settings of my camera, I was more interested in photographing NYC with a experienced guide. We worked with different angles to photograph NYC buildings. We experimented with manual setting to pan autos and long exposures at Grand Central Station. I recommend this tour... More
