Saba is patient and professional. She gives a bit of history of the gardens as she brings you around and helps you take post card perfect photos in the appropriate settings on your camera.

Nice afternoon event!

The scavenger hunt was some good fun. Highly recommend all participants to have a cell phone where they have internet access. You have to answer questions in order to know what you're looking for. May be a good idea to answer all the question before officially starting your hunt. Carefully read the questions some are a little tricky.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Had a great start near the statue of George Washington with everyone scrambling to get the butterfly posing for us on the flowers and my wife got a nice shot of a bee. We stopped by the gardens a couple days before and took some pictures and it was interesting to compare what we took verses what Saba pointed out as good shots that we missed. So get there early and take some shots to see how much more you learned after taking the tour.

Public Garden Photo Walk

Saba was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Her passion for Boston and photography was infectious. The tour was a great way for tourists and locals, amateurs and accomplished photographers, to learn about Boston and record their impressions photographically.

Great tour, great pictures, great guide!

I had a wonderful photo walking tour with Saba through the Boston Garden area. Saba gave both contextual background on the different focal points (statues, flowers, boats, places, etc) as well as great composition advice. I'm sure with enough time and a history book you could figure out some of the background information, but her composition ideas are priceless. Saba also happens to be a very nice person as well who goes out of her way to tailor the tour to your desired focus. She isn't a franchise, so know that if you book a tour with PhotoWalks that you are booking a quality experience. Thanks again Saba!

Fabulous guide - great with local lore and history, and fantastic at getting us to see things differently - incredible improvement in my shooting. Would recommend most highly for all types of photographers, and I will come back for the other tours, and will bring out of town guests as well.

Picture perfect day in Boston!

Great value. It was over before I knew it. The outcome was a fresh perspective and a handful of very nice photos. I enjoyed the experience. The spring flowers were past their prime but the swans made up for it. Saba was very friendly and helpful. Thanks for the fond memory.

Interesting, informative, excellent

This is our second tour with Saba. She is fully a top notch guide of both photography and traditional Boston experiences. We took the Flower tour which included some Beacon Hill as well as Louisburg Square. Saba provides her artistic eye for interesting and memorable photos and is filled with spot on information about any site we were observing. A tour with Saba is not to be missed. We will be touring again with her.

A lovely walk in the park!

I was fortunate to be the only person on the tour of the Boston Public Garden, so I got to ask unlimited questions of Saba.

She was very informative and encouraged me to look at the usual scenes with a different eye, a different angle and a more intuitive approach.

There were so many more questions that I could have asked her! Not only was she an informative photographer, she had many bits of information of the history of Boston and I think she would probably be a great friend!

I would encourage anyone to take the tour, and to keep your fingers crossed that you were a part of a small group!

A great walking tour.

Saba has a great eye for composition and thanks to her advice I not only got good photographs and learned about the Boston Garden and Beacon Hill areas. I have taken a photography course but I think I learned more from Saba about composition and setting up a picture than I did from the course. My wife is not an avid photographer and only took a couple of pictures, but she also really enjoyed the tour.

A perfect photo day

My daughter and I had a wonderful time on this tour. We enjoyed learning some very helpful tips on taking pictures and using our cameras. We had a perfect day of picture taking. Saba was easy to talk to, knew the history of the parkl, and she kept us moving at just the right pace. This 90 minute walking tour felt like a 5 minute walk. I will be telling all my friends about this photo tour. We can't wait to walk the Back Bay tour in the spring!

Great experience - learned lots
Fri, Aug 7, 09   10:00 AM smittymom227 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
The other people apparently cancelled, so I was the only participant. We covered a lot of ground, both literally & figuratively, since it was a one-on-one opportunity. She is obviously very familiar with both the history of Boston, as well as places to get great images, not to mention photo techniques.

I would definitely take one of her other walks when I have the chance to be in Boston again.

I'm interested in professional photography and figured that this might be a small step for composition and such. Loved that it was a small group (there were only 5 of us) and Saba had a lot of good historical information on what we were shooting as well as great composition ideas. I will be joining her on other walks in the future. Got a lot of information for the money I was paying! Enjoy!
