“Great tour, helpful guides, well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I was in London for the week and booked myself on the night photography tour starting from Bank station. We visited several sites in the City and London Bridge, which gave us some great night views of the Thames and tower Bridge. Really got some great shots and some great tips for night photography. Would thoroughly recommend

“Only one word to describe it ... FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

I learnt so much about photography & my camera from Corinna on this wonderful journey. Her ability to show you different ways & angles to use your camera was fantastic. You discover little things that you would ordinarily not notice & all of a sudden it's a great photo. Her camera knowledge was backed by her history knowledge of London. On top of all that she's a very interesting lady with a great personality. Do your self a favour if you are in London & you have any interest in photography ... Do THIS TOUR!

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Cant imagine a better way to sight seeing and photography at the same time. If you feel like taking pictures in a city that you dont know well and be guided and educated by very welcoming coaches, then this is the right way. Our coach for mystery photo tour ( Robert) gave us good knowledge about the history of the city while pointing to us some nice angles for great shots. Dont miss this.

“Highlight of Our Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We did the London Photography Tour (we had waffled between the Mystery Photography Tour and this one) on the first morning of our trip. We agreed that this was one of the highlights of our Europe trip (London, Amsterdam, Oslo and Sweden) in that we learned the basics of the manual settings for Shutter and Aperture settings and at the end of the session had enough knowledge and understanding that neither of us used the automatic settings for the rest of our trip. This knowledge is invaluable to people who want to take control of their camera. Someday I would love to come back take the Mystery or London at Night Tour. Corinna was patient and knowledgeable and pointed out different perspectives that I would have never thought about. The only thing that could have been better that day was the weather (which was terrible)! If you have an SLR and want to start using your manual settings, but don't really know where to start take this tour - it is totally worth every pound!!!!

“LOVED IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

My mom and I did the beginners workshop with Corinna and it was amazing! We had recently done a photo tour in Paris and were unsure how the two would compare. Hairy Goat won by a landslide (not that it's a competition, but a learning experience). Corinna was brilliant! She had an amazing personality and gave every one of us the appropriate attention to help on an individual basis. We started at a cafe so no need for breakfast or drinks before you meet her! I learned so many great techniques and she offered some great insight about how to make the dreary London sky work in pictures. We even got handouts to help with practicing. Make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes! Corinna even threw in some history as we strolled along that was a perfect touch. Anyone interested in photography should sign up, even if your knowledge is basic. The information you leave with will continue to help in your future photography.

SPREAD THE WORD! I know I am and I hope you get a chance to go too!
