What's better than getting a custom photo tour of Amsterdam? Doing it with someone you'd be friends with anyway. That's how I felt after getting to know Phillipe. I booked a private tour and was very pleased with the point-of-interest selection, the local knowledge, the photography know-how and the friendship. Phillipe asked me a few questions when we first met... More

I took the night tour with Chris Page and had a blast! Chris shared his vast knowledge of the city, its architecture, and its culture as we wove around neighborhoods and talked photography. He suggested vantage points, compositional elements, and gave technical advice when asked. By the end of the evening I felt I had made a new friend! I... More

I did a 6 hour photo tour / lesson with Philippe Bro on 15 May 2017. The 6 hours simply whizzed by. As they say - time flies when you're having fun. He introduced me to real night photography - as opposed to just taking photos at night. He was a gentle teacher but still detailed and exacting, yet patient.... More

We had a night tour and a morning one with Philippe Bro, which was a delight both in terms of sightseeing and photography! Philippe introduced us to neighborhoods we wouldn't have visited otherwise, and had useful photography tips in terms of composition and shooting angles. He was very alert to our preferences and planned the tour accordingly. Walking the streets... More

The highlight of our April 2017 visit to the Netherlands was the Amsterdam Photo Safari Night Shoot with Philippe Bro. He is very laid back and kind but also a bit of a genius when it comes to photography. I'd never worked with a tripod before, arduously avoided shooting anything once the sun was even close to setting. No more.... More

There was so much I liked about this tour. Foremost was the guide, Philippe. It wasn't just that he was an excellent teacher, it was more like being accompanied by an erudite, well travelled friend. Though I know Amsterdam quite well, he introduced me to quarters I had not seen before and the walking was accompanied by interesting conversation about... More

My daughter and I had a positive experience with Christofer Page on our 3 hour Amsterdam Night Tour. It is always interesting exploring a new city with some one who is not only familiar with the place but is passionate about photography. Chris initially assessed our level of experience, interests and then walked us through different parts of Amsterdam from... More

The tour was a gift to my little sister visiting me from Germany. We had booked the 4 hour tour. Philippe was easy going and explained my sister a lot about basic camera settings to give her the best experience. We went to great places, made great pictures...an unforgettable tour!

One of the highlights of my trip to the Netherlands was touring Amsterdam with Chris. I took a three-hour tour with Chris on arriving in Amsterdam. His analysis of my work and suggestions for improvement were invaluable. Chris was so helpful that I booked a second three-hour tour to cover sunset and evening photography. Working with Chris was one of... More

I highly recommend this photo tour! In just a few hours, I was able to see some of Amsterdam's most beautiful hidden gems. Chris was experienced and a great teacher. I got some great shots and he provided some great background information on Amsterdam. If you have a few hours in Amsterdam, take this tour!
