Really enjoyed this tour - was nervous about being a novice with a DSLR but Fred was very helpful and I learnt a ton whilst enjoying the tour. It definitely upped my photography and had huge compliments about the pics. Definitely recommend!

Thumbs up guys. Fantastic morning session. Not crowded and in the heart of the local life. Enjoyed all the selected spots and the banana pankake was the top! Keep going! Reasonably priced and fun! Bring batteries you are going to shoot a lot!

We really enjoyed this tour, we learned so much about our cameras and how to start using manual modes. Loved the fishing village and meeting the locals all whilst practicing our new photography skills.
