I just did the SOHO safari tour with Gildo. Great experience. He really knows SOHO and photography. I learned how to take a better shot esthetically and technically. Learning while having fun is the best. I highly recommend this tour.

I took my husband on the evening photo tour and Gildo was a great tour guide and gave lots of photo tips. His artistic vision was refreshing and really got my husband to step out of his comfort zone. We got some really great photos to remember our trip by. I would love to try one of the other tours... More

Many thanks to Gildo for making this Aussies first day in Central Park really great. It was the best way to see the park while indulging my love of photography. Your sense of humour and your local knowledge made me really comfortable and I picked up a few photo tips along the way. Thank you!!

I took the night course on a rainy December evening. Jean Francois was our guide and was well prepared. He outlined the evening as well as reviewed techniques that we would use. It rained throughout the night, sometimes very heavy, luckily it was unseasonably warm. The wet ground made the pictures turned out stunning. Our guide walk us through the... More

Had a great day doing this tour. Gildo was very friendly. He pointed out things to look for to create our shots. More an artistic approach then a technical one. I would recommand this tour.

Two very different tours. Soho tour was with Michael, who had an artistic approach and showed us Soho's treasures where we had lots of opportunities to take pictures and have great feed-back. NY landmarks was with Rob, who had a more technical and close to the book approach with very traditional pictures to take. I enjoyed both tours and learned... More

Thank you Alcaline, that's true we try to vary the styles by rotating our photographers. We try to bring you different experiences so that by booking multiple tour or coming back you will have a different point of view. Best of luck with your photography, Sam More

I booked at the last minute and the company was able to accommodate me on a night photography tour. There was no minimum number of people as I was the only one on the tour. My tour guide, Jean Francois was an excellent guide. As an amateur beginner photographer he showed me the tips and tricks of taking good quality... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
