If you like photography, this is the best way to discover Cape Town. Greg knows the local areas very well, he's a talented photographer and I've learned more about Cape Town on my tour with Greg than on any of the organized tours of the Cape. Not to mention coming back with incredible photographs.

I was looking for a photography tour and this company stood out. The tour did not disappoint at all. From Sunrise on Signal Hill to an afternoon in Langa, Greg took me around the Cape. He showed me new ways to take photos, describing panorama techniques and software. Terrific. Now I have to implement these things. The scenery made photography... More

We did two of the three-hour guided photography walks and loved them both. The first was of the city (Bo Kaap, Company Gardens, etc) with Greg and the second was of Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens with Eric. Both tours were brilliant. Greg and Eric gave us some excellent tuition and tips and took us on two really interesting tours. The emphasis... More

I'm a repeat visitor to Cape Town and was looking for something a little off the beaten path. This was the first time I had indulged in a tour with a photographer and I had a great day with Greg. We toured mountains, beaches, and places in-between, including a nice walk to a remote reservoir. He gives as much or... More

As an ex-resident and frequent visitor to Cape Town, I was looking for something a little different to do in this wonderful city. I have recently become interested in photography, but am a complete beginner really, and when I found out about Greg's photowalks thought this would be an interesting way to spend a few hours. A friend and I... More

Greg took us to explore a new side of the V&A Waterfront that is slightly off the tourist beat but filled with history and a plethora of amazing sights for photographers to delight in. Greg also gave some great tips and tricks for the amateur photographer to ensure you capture some amazing shots.

The walk was 3 hours, taking in Company's Garden, Long Street and the Bo Kaap. I really enjoyed the walk, Greg was a great guide - not only sharing interesting info about the places we visited, but also sharing photography tips and tricks as well. Really enjoyed the trip, would definitely do it again and recommend to anyone interested in... More

Greg is not only a knowledgeable tour guide, but an outstanding photographer too, so in addition to a very enjoyable 3 hour relaxed walk, we picked up valuable tips along the way.

Fantastic place to take pictures and especially guided by Greg. He knows every detail and place of his photowalks, as well as the perfect time to shoot in different locations. Thank you Greg, I have learned a lot with you.
