Back Bay

Youth (10-17)

Explore Boston's Back Bay from a different angle on a PhotoWalks tour!

Back Bay is an exclusive area known for its architectural icons in Copley Square and the elegant Victorian brownstones in its 19th-century French-inspired residential area. We spend more time at scenic locations than a traditional Boston walking tour, so you can get those impressive shots of Boston’s iconic landmarks and so much more.

PhotoWalks founder Saba Alhadi, a professional local photographer and tour guide, provides creative photography tips and tricks and shows you the best angles to shoot from so you can practice new techniques. History and architecture buffs will enjoy the historical commentary during our leisurely stroll.

Discover its limitless photo opportunities as we photograph the Boston Public Library, Trinity Church, Old South Church, former John Hancock Tower and, of course, the grand French-inspired 19th-century residences along Commonwealth Ave., Marlborough St. and much more.

Find out why this is one of the best walking tours in Boston!

On this PhotoWalks Back Bay tour, you’ll learn how to:

  • Capture amazing photos using your camera or smartphone
  • Compose unique architectural and abstract images
  • Apply newfound photography skills wherever you go

All ages and skill levels are welcome. Advance reservations required. (*Please note the same price applies for non-photographers since the experience is also a historical walking tour with commentary.)

The PhotoWalks Guide to Successful Photography is included in the price. This e-booklet provides valuable information on maximizing your photography skills and user-friendly explanations of camera functions.
