Five Stars!

My mom and I went to Boston to celebrate my 21st birthday and I’ve always been inspired by Boston’s architecture and intricate, charming beauty, so of course photography was a pinpoint of our trip. My mom had gifted me a private photowalk with Saba, and we had a fantastic time. Saba is so passionate about her stomping grounds and the fascinating architectural history at every corner. She is very well spoken and a very knowledgeable photographer!

What A Great Experience!

Wasn't certain about this tour when I signed up, but I sure enjoyed my time with Saba! She loves her city and loves to teach. I learned some awesome techniques of photography and saw some incredible sights while learning historical details. I have lovely shots from our time together and I would recommend this highly to anyone, beginner, advanced, or on the fence. Thank you, Saba!

A Lasting Image of Boston

Having done similar photo walks before in other cities we were very pleased to book Saba! The tour was both informative and photogenic and Saba knows the local history and her photography with equal high standards. We had the pleasure of improving knowledge of Boston and architectural photography. In our case Saba was most accommodating to changing plans as we came in by cruise ship. This flexibility was hugely appreciated!

A Memorable Way to Capture Vacations Photos

We had an amazing time on the Photowalks Tour! Saba provided great photo tips, excellent stories, and a wealth of knowledge about the sites we visited, including her booklet. There were a few icing on the cake surprises, including photos of secret hideouts of the underground railroad and photographing John Kerry's home. We hope to return to Boston and take another one of Saba's tours!
