Really glad to find this tour. Suitable for kids, as my 17-year-old daughter joined me with her SLR camera as well. We met at the designated location right on time and walked out to Trafalgar Square for an orientation and the crowds were light. We spent lots of time discussing camera settings, composition, exposure and angles of perspective throughout the tour. Our guide, Lou, was very experienced, informative and helpful. We walked over to Leicester Square, Picadilly Circus, past several monuments, down to St James Park, past uniformed guards on horseback, and over to Westminster Abbey. We did take a short break in a cafe and everything was well paced as we experienced the city through our lenses. The takeaway? We were able to get hundreds of shots statues, store windows, London cabs, parks, phone booths, architecture, street portraits, and classic skylines and bring home great memories during the 4-5 hour tour.

Excellent, Lou gave me extremely good advice on ways to improve my photography. I learned a great deal about more fully utilising the capabilities of my camera. I feel more confident in composition and better exposure and sharpness in my photos. Would recommend to beginners and more experienced photographers.

My granddaughter being artistic and into photography really enjoyed the time spent with our professional artist and photographer that spent a few hours taking us around. She was exceptionally brilliant at her craft and gave my granddaughter pointers on how to get the best pictures with the different settings and angles to use. Very helpful and enjoyable.
