I booked the Citifari Central Park tour for this past Sunday. When I arrived, my tour guide, Francois, found me quickly and we chatted briefly about New York and photography. We waited on two more people: another person for the tour and another guy (Michael) that was actually looking to become a tour guide himself. They both arrived shortly and... More

This was a wonderful tour. Jean-Francois our tour guide was patient and extremely knowledgeable. Our group had all different photography level experience and he catered to all levels. I am looking forward to take another tour when I'm in the area. I would highly recommend this tour.

I did the night tour on a cold, windy, and wet night but had a great experience. It was a small group and the instructor was good about making sure everyone understood the assignment. I walked away with some pictures I can print!

I was bringing my 17 year old niece to New York for the first time and she chose this tour as one of her highlights. She is a budding young photographer. She has a decent camera and some basic knowledge. I accompanied her as a "non-photographer" and paid a reduced price. Jean-Francoise was our guide and I would highly recommend... More

The evening started at 7.30pm with a meet point on the quieter side of town. Our instructor, Gildo, was friendly, helpful and knowledgable. We were learning from the first moment to the last. We visited several spots to capture different lights, angles and compositions. Subjects ranged from buildings and street lamps to taxi cabs and store front windows. I got... More

it's a really pleasant tour this guys do here. I enjoyed every minute with jean francoise, listening his lessons about photography, his knowledge about every building and very corner of the city, the history and stories behind every place. Its no just a photography tour but a bee york hidden spots tour.

Thanks Julian for your review. While our focus is really around photography we also believe that in order to take good photos you need to understand your subject. Our guides have lived and internalized the city through their careers. 2.5 hours are not a lot but they love to share their experiences. Sam More

Learned interesting new techniques of how to photograph city-scapes. Our guide was knowledgable and interesting and encouraged the small group to try new things. There were times that he offered we try specific settings but more frequently suggested we experiment, which was the right balance of getting us started but then encouraging us to go in what ever direction we...
