I booked Photo Trek Tours after reading the Reviews on here, I pre paid via Paypal beforehand. Our Guide Terence made us feel very welcome straight away had a quick chat on which locations he would take us and was open for suggestions if there was anywhere else we wanted photos. Terence took some brilliant photos of us and i highly recommend booking him for a tour.

“Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We had an amazing time and found out so much about York that we didn't know. We have some incredible photos, full of York’s beautiful surroundings and backdrops. Terry was a great guide, some of our favourite photos are from this tour. Good value for money, we both recommend. Thanks so much.

“The Photo Guide Extraordinaire”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Highly recommended Terry’s photo trek tour if you are staying in York for a short trip. Terry is very passionate about the city and he shared a lot of his local knowledge and hidden gems with us. Unlike other walking tours which focus on the main sights and history of the city, we also get some professional photos shoot by him at major landmarks. He advised us on different poses and we ended up with really nice photos.

My fiancé and I were lucked out to book a tour with him this weekend and we had a great time together. Terry is very accommodative and we would like to thank him for his service. We experienced heavy rains half way through our tour and he just offered to continue the tour the next morning before we left the city. This is way beyond our expectations. Hopes to see you next time again in York !!!

“Excellent!!!”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

I booked this tour as part of a day-trip to York, while we (me, husband, inlaws) were staying in a cottage in North Yorkshire. It was a wonderful introduction to the beautiful city and we really enjoyed the tour. Terence knows a lot about the city and it's history and we were impressed with his people-skills. Just the walking tour would be well worth the money.

But, of course, this was also about PICTURES!
It was a bit weird to have our pictures taken by a professional with so many tourists around, but York is a very friendly place and most of the time people waited for us to get the perfect shot before they moved on, I don't think this would be as easy in places like London and New York.
As we didn't stay in York, we opted for the download-link, which we received within 12 hours! We loved the pictures, Terence really managed to capture us the way we are. We clearly are not super models, but it is lovely to have so many high quality pictures of the 4 of us together in this beautiful city.

We really feel this is extremely high value for money, and highly recommend York Photo Trek Tours.

As Terence shares so much information about the city (and restaurants), I would recommend scheduling this tour at the very beginning of a visit to York, so you can take advantage of the recommendations.

“Excellent photos, enjoyable time”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

I highly recommend the York Photo tour, especially if you are a couple or a group. Not only do you get great photos of all of the main attractions, but Terrence is great at telling little tidbits of trivia and history about the city and sights. I especially liked the fact that it wasn't just the typical stand in front of a site and take a picture arm-in-arm, but that Terrence took the time to craft unique and different types of poses to make the photos more interesting.
