Another Fantastic Experience with #ApertureTours - Nicoletta in Venice
My friend and I had the distinct pleasure of taking a Photography Tour of Venice with #ApertureTours with Nicoletta as our guide.

Nicoletta was an absolute joy to work with; knowledgeable, friendly, funny… All rolled into one package. She arrived a few minutes early at our pre-arranged meeting point, where my friend and I were enjoying a quick breakfast of a croissant and espresso. We sat for a few minutes, getting to know each other a bit, and chatting about our photographic experience, what we were hoping to see/learn during our time together, and a bit of background information about each of us. We then set out to explore a bit of Venice and shoot some photographs. Nicoletta was very helpful in offering suggestions on how to make the most of lighting conditions, how to have better composition in our photos; all the while reminding us that photography is very much a personal preference form of art, and that her suggestions were simply that… suggestions. She made it very clear that young photographers often imitate other, more seasoned, photographers for style, composition, exposure preferences, etc., but that most photographers begin, with time, to develop their own style or personality in their photographs; in many cases without conscientiously thinking about what that style or personality actually is. I would highly recommend Nicoletta if you find yourself in Venice and are looking to improve your photographic skills and knowledge.

A bit of background about myself… I have been “dabbling” in digital photography for about 3 years now; this is the 4th tour I have booked with Aperture tours. Every one of the tours I have completed with Aperture have been very educational for me; I feel my photographic skills have been greatly enhanced by these tours. All of the guides I have worked with have been great and I have really enjoyed each tour. One tour I had booked had to be cancelled as the tour guide/photographer had a family emergency; Alexander could not have been more apologetic for the issue, and immediately refunded my booking fee without question. I would not hesitate (and have not hesitated) to book again with #ApertureTours.

Perfect combination of a Venice city tour and photogrpahy skills lesson
Dec 2019
The tour with Alvise took us to some Venice highlights for those classic photographs, as well as some hidden gems that we would never have found without his local knowledge. He helped me with some technical bad habits that have crept into my photography, and my non-photographer husband enjoyed the tour just as much as I did. Perfect way to spend a few hours in Venice!

Getting a different angle on Venice
I thoroughly enjoyed my evening out and about in Venice. It has a different atmosphere at night. Reflections, lights shadows, busy areas and deserted areas.
Pablo guided me around patiently which suited me, I didn't want to rush. He was knowledgeable and gave me tips on eg. composition and some technical issues. He was great company.
The communication from the company, prior to this, was ordinary to say the least. I received an email confirming my tour with questions about my particular areas of interest and equipment, asking for a reply which I was eager to respond to as I was having issues with my equipment. So I responded, but the next email I received, made no reference to my questions. I was told twice that no mobile number had been registered but it had been supplied 3 times.
However, the company was helpful in that I was able to change the date to the following day when I requested it so overall I cannot complain too much. If the communication had been better I would have rated it higher. Hopefully this will improve and in that basis I would highly recommend it.

Thank you, Henrietta, for your review. We are delighted to hear you had an enjoyable night with us in Venice and took some atmospheric photos at night when things are calmer. Sorry about asking for your phone number a couple of times. We needed the country code; without it, we couldn't have called you if there was a problem.

Photography tour with Anna
Sep 2019 • Couples
My partner and I had a great evening with Anna. I learnt so much, having previously been on a course Anna now gave me the opportunity, confidence and guidance to put into practice what I had learned. Although my partner wasn’t taking photos with us Anna was also a great source of local information to add to the evening. As well as encouraging me to think outside the box when looking at a composition of a photo Anna also gave me some new great tips on how to get the best from my pictures.
We can’t thank Anna enough for a great evening
I will definitely be following the website and blogs from here onwards and also hope to be taking part in some future tours.

Great photography walking tour!
Mar 2019 • Solo
I recently did a photography tour with Alvise, who was not only very knowledgeable about photography, but also knew all the great spots in Venice to get interesting photos that are unlike the many similar shots most tourists will take. Different vantage points, out of the way locations, different perspectives.

The tour began with Alvise asking about my level of expertise and my "style" (if I have one), so that he could better customize the tour. I showed him some of the photos I've taken previously and that gave him a pretty good idea.

We walked from the Rialto area to Piazza San Marco, across the Acdademia bridge, along the waterfront, through some hidden areas of Dorsodouro, then back towards San Marco. Along the way Alvise would challenge me to get out of my comfort zone and try different types of shots, different angles, etc.

I ended up getting some great shots, saw some areas I probably wouldn't have found on my own, and had a great time. I highly recommend this tour!

The Highlight of our Holiday
Sep 2018 • Couples
This tour was purchased as a gift for my husband who enjoys photography and wanted to get help with using his camera to the full. Mirko met all our expectations. He turned up on time and was extremely warm and friendly and easy to talk to. He listened to what we wanted and tailored the tour to meet our needs. He had booked a sunset slot at the top of the Tedeschi building so that we could take views from the rooftop terrace.
The 3 hours went so quickly and my husband learned lots of really useful stuff from Mirko that he will find useful for a long time to come.
This was a really enjoyable experience and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys taking great photographs.
Thanks Mirko - and remember to contact us if you're planning a visit to Scotland.

Venice through a photographer's eyes
Aug 2018 • Family
Spent three great hours early evening last week with Anna as we walked from Dorsodoro to the jewish quarter and Cannereggio. Anna's enthusiasm and great eye shines through and kept me and my 20 year son interested and informed.

As an experienced photographer, who keeps returning to Venice with my camera, what I enjoyed was the way she challenged me to take a fresh look at my composition and what each picture was trying to say, as well as helping with exposure as the evening set in. We also used the tripod to manage some blue hour exposures and ensure calm, silky water.

This was a great way to spend a first evening of our stay - not even so much for the pictures I took, but for getting me back into a photography frame of mind. The organisational side of the booking all ran smoothly and it was no problem to change the meeting spot to somewhere closer to our hotel.

Thanks Anna for a great start to our stay.
