Well Worth It! Marc provided the best walking tour that we have experienced in our travels. I encourage anyone visiting New York to take this tour. Marc was personable, and enjoyable. He had interesting information about New York, didn't push his knowledge, but instead offered details if the timing was right. He got us around the city quickly, with his local ability to know the subways, and he took us to the best places not only to see, but to take pictures. I ask, "who wouldn't want great pictures of their trip to New York?' Well, look no further ~ for an unbelievable low price, we left owning nearly 70 outstanding images of our time in New York with Marc. Thumbs up to Trip Advisor and to Marc of PhotoTrek Tours. This is a first class experience.

Our photo tour was awesome! Marc was a great guide and was an even better photographer. He knew a ton of great spots for intimate and unique shots in Central Park and the Upper West Side. Would definitely recommend PhotoTrek Tours!

We booked a Photo Trek tour in order to enjoy elements of NYC and capture the images to keep as memories. Marc was brilliant, he was enthusiastic, daring with some of the shots (we all survived!) and managed to engage teenagers, adults and children alike in our family group. Informative and prepared to give hints and tips about the area, Marc really set our holiday off to a great start. The photos, eagerly awaited, were received with excitement and did not disappoint. So pleased we booked this tour and would highly recommend to travellers to NYC. Thank you Marc.

Mark was our photographer and tour guy through Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge. Although I have been to NYC many times, Mark was very informative and pointed out a lot of really cool stuff. My girlfriend who was visiting for the first time hasn't stopped talking about the tour and experience. The photos were phenomenal and very well done. I highly recommend this tour for your next visit!

We chose the Central park tour which starts in Times Square and then moves to Central Park. Mark is a real New Yorker and has a heap of local knowledge and history. He takes you through the subway and explains how to get a ticket etc and takes real NY shots. It is a fast moving session but we was happy to slow down when we asked as it was a hot and steamy day. Do think about what you wear as you end up with a lot of photos of yourself! As a couple we were sick of selfies so this was a great reminder of NY. Cant recommend this tour highly enough. I would do at the beginning of your time in NY as Mark has lots of practical advice.. Thanks Mark

Our photographer and tour guide, Marc Samuels, was absolutely terrific. Would highly recommend Marc and doing the tour at the beginning of your trip to New York. Not only do you get a lay of the land and recommendations but you get great photos so you don't need to worry about getting them later.

We were lucky enough to have Kennedy as our personal photographer and he was just amazing! He made our day! We started in Times Square and he captured us so well in all the hustle and bustle that Times Square is famous for. A quick ride on the subway with some quirky pics and we were in Central Park. Kennedy knows this park so well, he shot some terrific pictures and pointed out all that Central Park is famous for. We are just delighted with the images and will treasure them for ever. Kennedy was just a pleasure to be with and he’s gone above and beyond with his level of service as I left my sweater in his rug sack and he’s only going to take it to Ireland when he comes on vacation to return it to me. We really recommend this activity if you want to capture a memory whilst spending time with the people who matter to you.

It sure was a great walk, and i have lovely pictures that i could not take myself by far.
Marc knows the city so well because he is from new york. In this 2 hour tour he asked me what i wanted and gave me options and then we got of in a quick pase because of that we could do a lot of things in Central park and serveral places in the city going on to the Brooklyn bridge . Marc also gives you the time to get some drink or use the restroom, i did not need it but good that he give people time for it. He also teached me how to use the subway so handy and also tips where to go or eat! Great conversation during the walk it did not feel as 2 hours at all, sure had a great time. Marc also walked a bit further because he wanted to show me where i could go after the tour and i did :) big thanks!

Marc was a very friendly and professional guide. The photos turned out great, and he was familiar with all the best spots to photograph and very patient in guiding our poses. We live in the city so it's pretty interesting to hear facts about Central Park that we aren't familiar with.

We booked a PhotoTrek tour around Times Square and Central Park to capture some memories of our first family trip to NYC. Mark was great! Informative, personable and quick to put us all at our ease. He clearly loves his city and was greeted warmly by locals on his tour destinations. He took over 150 photos and they were all sent to us within the day, which we weren't expecting. There are some great shots in the deck. Novel, fun and with all of us (two adults, two tweens) looking relaxed. We now have some difficult choices as to which ones make it onto the walls at home! Thank you Mark for a unique, enjoyable and informative experience.
