      Great photography walk
      I can highly recommend this photography tour, even for those already familiar with Carcassonne. We genuinely learned many new tricks, as well as seeing parts of the Cité de Carcassonne we had never seen before, and learning some history along the way. Laurence is a charming, well-informed guide.

      Discovering Carcassonne and photography!
      Great day wondering around Carcassonne learning the principles of photography in a lovely relaxed manner! Im very much a beginner and love photography...i went along with my iphone but others had their cameras... Laurence is very laid back and you can take whatever material you are comfortable with... We visited theCarcassonne that i had never been to before and i came home, not only having learned something but also with some rather lovely pictures...Thankyou Laurence!

      Great photography and local interest tour for all
      I was a little hesitant in booking this tour a) because I live near Carcassonne and b) I wasn't sure how much I'd gain from a photography perspective. Laurence, our guide, blew away both of my hesitations from the start. I appreciated his relaxed approach that immediately made it clear that it didn't matter if you came with a smartphone or a full-on SLR, or something in-between (me). It's not offered as a technical photography tour, but I found the five principles for taking photos that Laurence took us through very useful. Through the tour he mixed short inputs of these in with time to have a wander to put them into practice. All interspered with fun facts and his local's knowledge of Carcassonne. The tour takes in the living "new town" streets, offering lots of points of interest and opportunities for shots. My tour was on a Saturday morning so it was market day in the main square, full of colour and local life. We finished with a drink together in the sunshine at one of the local cafes. Perfect. I can highly recommend this tour to visitors, locals, smartphone snappers and keen photographers alike. It's an enjoyable and interesting way to explore Carcassonne while boosting your photography.

      Family in Carcassonne
      We have spent a nice moment with a photographer who was able to adapt himself to our family. He has shown the city in another way.

      Great experience!
      My family of three adults took Laurence’s tour of the new town of Carcassonne on 20.12.2019 and loved it. We felt that we got to see the “real Carcassonne,” which we might not have done if we’d not had the tour to get us out of the walled city. Laurence is an engaging and personable instructor; we left with a better understanding of the broad stroke history of the region, of the current economy and culture, and of photography generally. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and evening and one we would recommend to any friend touring the area.

      A great experience
      We enjoyed greatly the experience and learned a lot about photography as well as Carcassonne. Laurence managed to keep us all engaged and motivated despite the rain. Especially our 12 years old photography enthusiastic girls. Great and practical tips and a simple language. Strongly recommended experience if your are planning a trip to Carcassonne.

      Rekindled Passion for Photos
      Was excited about the tour since receiving a voucher for Father’s Day, and even with many months of anticipation it did not disappoint. 2 hours just flew by between the great tips and advice from Laurence; relaxed atmosphere to take shots and put this directly into practice; historical titbits and casual banter. The backdrop of Carcassonne Cité isn’t bad either and Laurence comes up trumps again with some extra special views and challenges! Overall a very indulgent 2 hours to re-focus on an old passion away from the interruptions of busy family life! Highly recommended.

      Carcassonne Photography Tour
      Our 4 hour tour of Carcassonne with host Laurence was great fun. We were lucky to have him all to ourselves!! A private tour for 3. The lesson can be as basic as using a mobile phone or with an SLR and as involved as you want. We were novices and enjoyed the informal fun approach and the history of this beautiful town along our walk. There was also time to stop off and have a coffee or beer and the raspberries enroute with cake part way through was fun too. This is Laurence's signature (the raspberries and cake that is!!...yum). We took some great photos with our mobile phones early morning, the light was beautiful. Laurence knew the back streets off the beaten track and explained the rule of thirds and composition. A great mornings work!!

      Laurence turns the photography class, with history and architecture and lots of walking, into an enjoyable experience with his friendly and knowledgeable approach.

      Very good and fun Photographytour
      It was a fun afternoon where we learn a lot about some easy tricks for better photography. At the same time we got to know some interesting historic facts about the citadel and got a close inside view of it. We would definitely recommend the tour with Laurence, who is a very authentic and easy going person. We will come again ;)

    We took a 2-hour Christmas photography tour with Laurence yesterday, and I am glad to report that it was one of the best walking tours we’ve ever taken.

    Awesome tips for taking amazing pictures and secret spots galore! We will be sure to recommend Carcassonne Photography Tour to all of our B&B guests...
