This was fantastic, Saba the host was excellent, informative and friendly. I really enjoyed the whole event and wished it could have lasted longer. There was just three of us in the group and consequently Saba was able to give us all attention. Excellent!!!!!

Saba was incredible, so patient and so knowledgeable on both photography and the Boston area. I have lived in the city for 3+ years now, and felt like I was in a whole new place during the tour. Saba made me see Boston in a completely different way, both through the lens of my camera and through her knowledge of... More

Many thanks for an excellent photo tour walk of Boston. It was so refreshing to see parts of the city with an experienced guide, with an excellent knowledge of the city and a great help with my photography. Would definitely recommend a private tour although I'm sure the organised walks would be equally as good, it was just the times... More

The process was well laid out and had some very interesting challenges, even if you already knew a little about the city. It was a nice combination of answering questions, taking photos with a bit of walking.

Me and my friends signed up for this photowalk of Beacon Hill. There were only two of us, but we thought there would be alot more. We got almost a private tour of the neighbourhood and the instructor was very helpful in showing us how best to take pictures and to point out exciting views. I have not yet put... More

Saba provided an excellent combination of history and photography on the Freedom Trail tour. Entertaining and informative, she knows both subjects well from details of Paul Revere's ride to showing a spot where four different centuries of buildings can be seen. Often, these types of tours are stronger on history or photography, depending on the guide, but Saba made the... More

My wife and I both like to take photos. We each have decent cameras, and enjoy learing. Saba's tour provides both! Her historic commentary, coupled with guidance on photo shots, how to arrange, technical tips (all while being helpful and upbeat) was wonderful. The tour took a couple of hours, and we walked along at a very comfortable rate. There... More

My husband and I took Saba's Freedom Trail tour on our visit to Boston. Saba was wonderful, giving us ideas about taking interesting photos, as well as, telling us about the history along the Freedom Trail. The day was perfect for taking pictures and with Saba's suggestions we came home with many wonderful photo memories!

I recently took the tour of Beacon Hill with Saba. It was a wonderful experience. She provided great examples of pictures to take and provided lots of history of the area. Overall it was a great experience and hope to come back to Boston to enjoy another walking tour :)

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
