"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"
"It was wonderful having the time and space to look, having the confidence that there would be another impressive scene around the next corner and getting one shot worth entering for In pictures, The Guardian!"
"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"
