I had the opportunity in Singapore to take two photo tours with Aperture. The contracting was easy on the web, the first allowed me to visit Chinatown, seen from buildings and places I could not have imagined. I was guided diligently to take the best photos, from the best angles. Also the night tour was very interesting, Anya took me in front of Garden Bay where at 8 pm, there is a show of light and sound, we toured the bridge, Promenade and the whole new area of the bicentennial with the maximum information, the best approaches , with first-hand information. The tour did not concentrate excessively on the technique but on the best location, the best angles and the great knowledge of the city of Anya. My best impression was the efficiency of the hiring, the punctuality and ease to connect, I will repeat.

This is my second time with Aperture Tours. First in Paris, and now in Singapore. I adored my time with Ani in Singapore. I enjoy photography as a hobby, and have taken adult education classes at home that have improved my skills. However, nothing beats the coaching provided while taking pictures so that you can truly get the picture that you want. I couldn't be happier with my time with Ani in Singapore. Because Paris went so well, I decided to book two tours in Singapore - a 3-hour daytime and 3 hour nighttime. Six hours seems like a lot of time, but the time just goes quickly. I enjoyed the assistance in improving technical aspects of my photography (e.g., shutter speed, aperture) so that my photos would improve. I felt like I had a pretty good grasp on composition - but her feedback also helped to improve this aspect. I also really enjoyed being taken to locations I wouldn't have know about to get the right shots. Even if you have strong skills, I think this aspect of the photo tour makes it worth the price. Everything she showed me and worked with me on, helped me as I continued to take pictures independently for the rest of my trip. As I continue to travel, I will look to see if an Aperture Tour is available at my locations. In fact, I'm planning on gifting a tour for my sister-in-law, if I can arrange it, while she is in Paris.

This was my second Night Photo Tour with Aperture and once again was not disappointed. Anya was amazing and we worked on bracketing, panoramas and the benefits of Aperture over Manual. We were lucky that the night was pleasant and not raining and we walked for miles. Thanks once again. Your tours are amazing. :)

Anya provided great information on our cameras as well as information on how to best frame shots and then walked us to some outstanding locations to practice. The day was wet and steamy but Anya's locations were out of the weather and provided a different and interesting perspective for our photos. Really good and enjoyable tour.

During my business trip in June (2018), I took the chance to book my very first photography tour offered by „Aperture Photo Tours“. For both tours Anya was my tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. **Night Photography** My goal was to explore some usual and unusual vantage points to take the “typical” Singapore photos. In addition, I wanted to improve the way of composing my photos. Overall, we explored 4 different view points, where the latter one was my favorite spot (see photo from the Marina Bay Sands). Anya was also able to guide me in composing my photos more purposely. **Street Photography** I booked the Sunday morning slot, to avoid the harsch mid-day sun. The tour started close to the Chinese Market and Anya, once again, help me to understand how to compose the photos and how to develop a “story”. For those tour we explored 4 to 5 different areas. Overall, highly recommended.
