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

This was a wonderful way to practice photography in an amazing place! Francois was very generous with his knowledge. I learned a lot and can't wait to do some photography on my own to practice what I learned

The photo tour led by Francois was an experience to none. At the start of the tour, he went through the technical aspects of photography in the most concise yet detailed way possible. Thereafter applying the techniques to real-life scenarios. Francois was knowledgeable, approachable and had an amazing eye for detail. He was able to provide helpful tips to necessary... More

From the moment we made contact with Citifari Photo Tours we received outstanding service. My husband and I were only in New York for a short period and wanted to do a Manhattan night photography tour. Unfortunately there was nothing scheduled while we were in New York. However, when I contacted Citifari they were more than happy to accommodate us... More

I've lived in NYC for months and realized I hadn't taken any photos in this city. I decided to go on a bunch on photo tours to remedy this and Citifari was head and shoulders over the rest. The customer service has been excellent. They're very responsive. On the first tour I booked, it was pouring, and they allowed me... More
