Attraction details
Owner description: These private photography sessions take the chore (and mistakes) out of documenting your visit to Toronto. With a professional photographer dedicated to capturing your every camera-ready move, you'll enjoy each moment instead of scrambling for the photo. You might...maybe...miss asking strangers to take your photo or those charming pictures of your arm with half of an overexposed face. With this experience, you'll get 50 fully-edited digital photos - plenty of perfection for posting, framing and subtly bragging out. Be snapped at famous landmarks, get couple-time that you'll remember, re-enact your favourite sports moments, or step back into Toronto's past.

Reviewed July 22, 2013

Even though we are often in Toronto, it was great to walk around with Dustin! He was a confident tour guide and knew how to get off the busy mainways into quieter areas. Full of information, Dustin showed us the sights. We never felt rushed and Dustin encouraged us to ask questions. And the pictures...a great way to remember our anniversary!

“Special”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Dustin (the owner) is a great guy with a great idea for a company: he offers bespoke private walking tours in the downtown/harbourfront area whilst taking a large amount of photos in all the best places - and all for a remarkable price.

My wife and I stumbled on his office in the harbourfront centre, and he was so welcoming and helpful about things to do in Toronto we initially thought that his office was a some kind of tourism hub. Not only did he supply countless tips on the best way to see the sights (including lots of discounts/coupons) he proceeded to help us book Niagara adventure passes (saving nearly 50%) there and then and gave us all manner of assistance with maps and local tourism opportunities that we would have missed. He wasn't remotely pushy about his own company, which added to the attraction of making use of his services.

We decided to book Dustin's "Couples Tour" which began at 7pm at Dundas Square and he took us through a thoroughly pleasant meandering journey southward, stopping off at so many spots that we had previously barely registered to give us interesting information about them and also pausing at various fantastic photo locations that only a local would know about. The tour was about 90 minutes and because it was just us we could go at our own leisurely pace - never did we feel rushed or as if time was an issue.

We really felt like we were stars for an evening as Dustin expertly guided us along our tour and provided us with stunning photos (more than 50, all uploaded to a personal Dropbox folder) that we will treasure. He is as genuinely a nice a guy as you will ever meet and his passion for providing unique memories and satisfaction for his customers is superb. He even offered to go out and take photos of locations that we realised we might have missed once we got back home. Just exemplary service from beginning to end.

This tour was one of the very best decisions we made while we were in Toronto - it really is remarkable that Dustin offers such a wonderful experience for so little. It is superb value for money and a must-do if you are visiting Toronto.

“Great personalized photo tour”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This was a wonderful and informative tour. Dustin was so friendly and personalized the tour so that we could see the things we were interested in. We loved hearing the history and interesting facts about Toronto. I am glad we did this tour early in our trip for the overview and his advice on things to do and places to go. And it was fun to receive the photos sent to us the same night. They are a great memento of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour!

“Great personal walking tour!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

My girlfriend and I had a great time touring the city with Dustin, who was able to point out features that, after living in/near Toronto our whole lives, we never noticed. Dustin is great at finding secluded spots in very populated areas, which makes for great photo ops. The pictures we got back (within hours of the tour) were beautiful! Definitely an amazing value for the price of the tour.

“Personal tour guide & photographer!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Dustin gave us a great introduction to Toronto, and helped us maximise our limited time there. The tour really was tailored to our interests, and it was great hearing those little details about locations that we otherwise would never have noticed. Was also great to get a bunch of nice photos without the hassle of asking strangers to take a pic with mediocre results. Dustin was also really helpful recommending further things for us to do, and even with our trip to Niagara Falls saving us a heap of hassle and money. Highly recommended!
