Wonderful walking tour yet again with Marc!

This was our third walking photo tour with Marc. Each time we visit NYC, I request specifically that Marc be our photo guide because each tour with him has been so positive. He is knowledgeable and very willing to accommodate, so that each time we have an experience tailored to our interests. I cannot say enough about how wonderful his pictures are -without fail. This is definitely my favorite souvenir from each of our visits! Thank you Marc!

You can't go wrong with hiring phototrek. It was a great way to capture our anniversary trip. I only wish we were able to change shirts or something so they weren't all the same. Get ready to do a lot of walking in a short time.

We really enjoyed the Photo Trek Tour. Mark is very knowledgable and shared a lot of history and gave us information on different activities we may enjoy. We had a group of 6 and we had well over 200 photos. He had great suggestions for our pictures and was agreeable to anything we suggested. Our group ranged in age from 24 to 54. Everyone enjoyed and we have gotten a lot of comments about the pictures we shared from the tour.

My girlfriends and I enjoyed a great tour with Marc! This was our first day in NY and we learned a lot in the 2 hours we toured. Lots of great photos that we could not have taken ourselves and lots of great advice on things to see and do the rest of our week! Would definitely recommend this tour!

My wife and I decided that we wanted some pictures of ourselves when we visited New York recently but with neither us really like being herded around so after doing a few searches we found various recommendations for this tour. Everything went very smoothly from the booking process to receiving the information about the initial meeting point. The tour started off well, our photographer, Marc, was waiting for us so there was no standing around wondering if every tourist with a camera was our guy. After he suggested some spots and we agreed with him on what we were looking for we headed off onto the Times Square, Central Park, Upper East Side and Brooklyn Bridge. Marc was pretty chatty during the tour, giving some welcome hints and tips about getting around New York, areas to eat etc and was kind enough to give us easy directions to the River Cafe where we had a reservation that night. The photos were delivered to my email later the same day and I was able to download them to my laptop without any problems and I was quite impressed by the quality and framing of the shots, it was hard to believe that in some of the pictures taken on the Brooklyn Bridge we weren't the only ones there. All in all I would heartily recommend this tour to anyone who doesn't want to spend all their time asking strangers to take their group pictures whilst they are in New York.

My husband and I decided to book a phototrek tour to commemorate our first trip to New York together (without kids!).We were searching for a tour of New York, however, the typical group tours do not appeal to us - then we discovered Phototrek tours. The tours were highly reccomended and came with great reviews, so we gave it a shot. We loved it! Our photographer, Marc, was amazing - so informative and pleasant. He provided us with options for our preferences ie Grand Central Station vs SOHO...other areas we visited included Central Park, Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge, subway stations, Upper West Side....so much fun. Marc showed us the ropes for the Subway, gave us a suggested itinerary for the rest of the day and restaurant / tourist hotspots. The photos were stunning. We reccomend good walking footwear, comfortable clothing, the least amount of baggage possible (ie coats, backpacks) - Marc moves quickly to maximise your time with him and coats and bags can get in the way and slow you down. We had an 8 AM tour...perfect time....quiet and cool in the morning and amazing morning sun! Also, a recent tip I used with the tour,try and wear clothing that can be modified throughout the photo shoot...ie ladies, dress it up or down with a scarf...and guys...a nice vest/hat, etc to change up some photos. We would love to thank Marc for such a wonderful experience and so many memories (over 100!!!!). A definite 5 star tour highly reccomended!!!

I would strongly recommend this photo tour. We received 195 pictures of my husband and I with our children. The color was great, the pictures were fantastic. I was so happy not to have to drag my camera all over NYC. There is a lot if walking but well worth it. Marc was a great tour guide and was very friendly. He knew the city and where to get great shots. These pictures will be great memories for us.

Best NYC Tour Ever

We have been to NYC multiple times and taken this tour multiple times (with different guests) and it is always the highlight of our trips. We threw Marc a couple of curves this time with regards to logistics and he handled them with ease. That's the beauty of this tour; its yours to customize. A great way to see the city up close and personal --- plus we have 150 great pictures of us all over NYC! If you do only one tour in NYC; do this one. I highly, highly recommend it!!!

Great tour and great photos!
Sat, Mar 8  11:15 AM aikamalia Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The tour provided a great overview of several neighborhoods within the city and lots of historical and cultural detail. Our tour leader, Marc, is a very knowledgeable and personable guy, fun to tour with, and easy to work with. We threw him a curve ball at the last minute with my Muscular Dystrophy (which affects my activity levels), and he was able to modify the tour on the fly to accommodate my needs. We love the photos, and highly recommend the tour to everyone!
