Feedback from past Open-City photography tour attendees

" was very glad to hear his knowledgeable comments about some of the amazing buildings in the City. It was fascinating to have a fellow photographer's eye working for us as we discovered several centuries worth of London history in a single shot!"

"The tour offered a large number of vistas which are easily overlooked. As I know the City well, it was particularly rewarding to see buildings with which I was reasonably familiar, from a completely new point of view, through the eyes of a photographer"

"The tours was a gift from a friend. I had a wonderful time and took some great photos, even with a small digital camera. Grant was a great guide"

"...getting an informed view on new architecture AND some useful photography tips at the same time. Enjoyed everything about the tour. Guide was excellent. Brilliant tour"
