Booked Doc's tour for the last night of a SF work trip and boy am I glad that I did! There is no way I could have visited so many great photo locations and ended up with the pictures I did (my friends were all amazed).

Doc couldn't have been any greater. He knew which locations to visit at which times, he helped me with my camera settings so I could get the 'perfect' shot, and he's just a fun guy to be around. He knows a lot about SF and shared such interesting tidbits with me as we toured different spots; the history buff in me loved it.

Thanks for a great time, Doc, and sorry it took me so long to write a review :) I'll sign up for the sunrise tour next time I'm in SF!

This was a great experience for my husband and me. Doc picked us up at our hotel and brought us to some fabulous sites for photos. He gave some great tips to my husband and taught him some things about his camera that my husband didn't know he could do. This was a one-on-one experience. We really enjoyed our time with Doc and appreciated his knowledge of San Francisco and photography. Definitely worth the money!

Doc is a really great guy and we had an amazing time. My husband and son came along for the trip and were so glad that they had. Doc took us to locations that we would otherwise not have seen and knew all the best places to get amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge. I'm very much an amateur photographer and he helped me with settings on my camera when I wasn't sure, as well as helping whenever I got in a tangle with my tripod ;) We had been slightly worried about the weather as the fog was so thick in the morning but it cleared up completely, we couldn't have asked for better conditions for taking photos.
Doc's knowledge of San Francisco is second to none and my husband commented afterwards that he had learnt more about the city from Doc than he had from the tour guide on our tour of the city earlier that day. He also spent more time with us than we expected.
I would highly recommend this tour, it is so worth it.

We did the sunset tour with Doc and loved every minute. Doc showed us a variety of vantage points for the iconic photo shoots of San Francisco as well as showing us other locations and attractions that were not frequented by loads of tourists. Doc is an accomplished photographer, able to provide tips to improve shots and allowed us plenty of time in each location. A very worthwhile experience. thanks Doc

My Sunset Photography Tour with Doc Miles was a great experience. Even though I have visited San Francisco before, Doc showed me locations I did not know of before and somehow we arrived at each at a perfect time to photograph it with excellent light.
Our wide-ranging, easy going conversation added to the enjoyment of the evening. Then to top it off I got an invitation from him for a night-time photography meetup the next evening when he learnt I was free the next evening. So I got a second evening shoot and an opportunity to shoot some additional locations.
Thanks Doc! Hope to do another shoot with you sometime soon!
