Saba Alhadl, founder of PhotoWalks, is not only a superb visual artist and an excellent tour guide; her enthusiasm for Boston locations is irresistible, and so is her passion for helping guests find imaginative photo opportunities.

I did my first photo tour with Saba 7 years ago with my aunt. We had such a good time and took so many beautiful photos, that we decided to do the tour again last weekend again.
