My wife and I took the Central Park photo tour with another couple and enjoyed it immensely despite a 100+ degree heat index. Now anyone who says that must have really enjoyed the tour. Gildo is a perfect blend of teacher/artist/guide/New Yorker who not only entertains with his knowledge and humor, but also teaches with his photographic knowledge and art... More

I did the night tour. Outstanding! Gildo is pro with a wealth of knowledge. So much learnt on this tour. I will be practising for the rest of my trip. Make sure you do your photo tour at the start of your trip not the end.

Michael was wonderful at explaining how to use the ISO, f-stop and shutter speeds to adjust my camera in order to take great shots. He also gave us a history of Central Park and the various areas we explored within. It was a rainy cloudy day but we were still able to get some great pictures. He was very careful... More

My tour of choice was the New York by night Tour, which I booked approximately a week prior to traveling to New York. Prior to to the photo tour, I got a lot of good follow-up e-mails, with useful information, such as time to meet, where to meet, clothing advises, tips about equipment etc. It all seemed very professional.

I took a night tour with Citifari about three months ago just by myself. This time, I took a SOHO tour with my 17 year old son. The guide photographer was Gildo. He is a very nice guide and instructor. Both myself and my son really enjoyed the tour. If you are looking for picturesque sightseeing tour that you can... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when my girlfriend bought me a gift certificate for a Citifari photo tour. It turned out to be a fantastic experience. The photographer, Gildo, was truly a pro. He taught me so much from both the technical aspect and the creative aspect. He really gets you to set up your shots from a different... More

Why Citifari? I wanted to shoot cityscapes and that’s what appears in their logo. I also wanted to learn how to shoot at night. I went out with Gildo for an evening of wonderful learning. For the first time, I learnt how to make my camera do what I wanted it to do. Result? Lovely night shots full of coloured... More

Avoid this company like the plague. I was robbed of over $200 from these cowboys and when I tried to discuss some of refund it was like getting blood from a stone. There are other photography tours you can book from various trustworthy companies.

Derek, Please lay all the facts when writing such a negative review. You took a tour with us and said you loved it. You had another tour scheduled for the following day. Our photographer waited for you for about 30mn and you had not showed up. You arrived more than 30mn late and our photographer had left. The value of... More

I have a bit of photographic knowledge, but normally go for my camera set on fully auto and standard photo's with everything at right angles. My wife has less photo knowledge than me but enjoys taking snaps. This Central Park photo course with Gildo extended our photo knowledge and artistic eyes way beyond anything that we could have hoped for.... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
