What is special about this Photo Tour?

  • Featuring expertly selected premium hotels!

During all of our Photo Tours, everyone will have time to enjoy the sights and photographers will get plenty of time for shooting with two professional instructors each day. Non-photographers will never be left standing around waiting for their photographer partners as they will have options to sightsee and shop, but we will also offer instruction on how to get amazing photos with your camera phone if you're interested!

Unlike standard vacation tours, this small group tour is designed for those wishing to capture great photography and their partners who are interested in a great vacation. We'll tour the most beautiful locations and have time for sightseeing, shopping and great food everywhere we visit.

A special feature we offer is our own private coach with our guide and driver. Other than needing to be at our hotel each night, we have complete control over where we visit and how long we stay. No big busses that can't get everywhere and that require you to be back on the bus after an all-too-short visit before being herded off to the next quick stop. We decide on specific stops depending on the best options available and have a leisurely time exploring each place we visit.
