I really enjoyed the 7-hours photo walk with Ruud on Sunday. We walked from the Central Station via the whole city, took streets that I’ve never seen before even though si lived in Amsterdam for a year. Ruud is really passionate about photography and very helpful to pass his knowledge to his “students”. I learned to use couple of setting on my camera that I did not use before, and to see the photo subjects from new angles. I felt like I learned a lot. The walk was also fun and interesting from history perspective, like a private museum tour, because every house and street have their story. Very well prepared! I wish the sun was not so strong, and couple of places were closed because of current measurements, but I still have a bunch of great shots and would recommend the tour to my friends. Thanks Ruud!

I booked the tour with myself as the main shooter with my husband as a second cellphone shooter. It was very reasonably priced, and allowing people to bring a non-camera-toting tagalong for a very low price is genius. We met Ruud at the assigned time and found out that we were the only ones on that tour. We got the private tour for the group price. Fab! It was a bit of a drizzly gray January day, but Ruud showed us lots of fabulous spots that we never would have found. He shared lots of historical facts and pointed out things that we would have just wandered past without noticing. Since we booked the tour that went into the evening, we were able to try out a lot of nighttime long exposures. Ruud is fun, knowledgeable and very patient. I have a micro 4/3 camera, so many of the settings are different than a traditional full format DSLR. Ruud was incredibly helpful and patient while figuring out how to get my camera set up properly for the shots we wanted. By the end of the tour, we felt we were walking around the city with a friend, and I had learned so many new skills to take away. It really was fabulous and one of my favorite things I've ever done on a trip. I truly can not say enough nice things about Ruud and this tour!

Really enjoyed this tour. We got to learn a lot about the city that we wouldn't have otherwise known. We found Ruud's tips on composition very good. He also took us to some great spots. We loved it.

I really enjoyed my day, my guide combined a bit of history of Amsterdam with a great walk through the historical part of the city. I felt he could pitch the tour at beginner photographers to the more advanced! Well worth the money!

I had the best time ever ! When I got to the meeting point I realized that I’m the only one who booked the tour for that date, so I had the privilege to have a private tour with the one and only - Tomas ! We strolled the beautiful streets of Amsterdam talking about photography and life in general and of course we took some awesome pictures. For the last couple of months I’m thinking of buying a new camera (switching from Canon to Fuji) - I guess destiny was at my side because not only that Tomas had a Fuji camera that I can play with, my very own Canon decided to die on me (battery issues) - so I poop out a new SD card that I brought with me, put it in Tomas’s Fuji and start shooting. Thanks Tomas for the chance to see Amsterdam from a different way, thanks for a great experience and thank you for letting me shooting amazing photos with your camera.
