This tour exceeded my expectations! Carlos is awesome!

This is more than just taking pictures. Carlos will lead you through Alfama while sharing it's rich history and culture. He has a well prepared plan for traveling to scenic and unique locations for creative images. He shares his creative process to help you take advantage of the situation for composition, lighting, etc. Carlos speaks English very well and his instruction is top notch.

This activity is for:
1. the beginner or hobbyist who wants to spend time with a professional photographer to gain valuable insight to inject momentum into their photography journey
2. the casual tourist who wants to have some photographs that they will be excited to share with friends and family
3. the seasoned photographer or professional who wants the ideal locations from a knowledgeable professional.

This is a good value. I highly recommend this tour.
More than just a tour, my photography got noticibly better after the tour.

I had an excellent day with Carlos, walking around Lisbon taking photos.

While I consider myself a good photographer, Carlos really helped me with my composition.

Also, I felt comfortable bringing along my new travel tripod and taking some low light shots using the tripod.

Carlos is very friendly and responsive, he listens to what I was trying to achieve and learn, and he structured the tour around my needs. I never felt rushed to move on to the next location.

If you are serious about taking better pictures, invest in your hobby by getting coached by a professional like Carlos.

Well worth the money.
A wonderful tour of Alfama with a pro

My husband and I look back fondly on our day in Alfama with Carlos. His warm and friendly personality instantly put us at ease as he showed us the sights and told stories about this beautiful historic area. He took us to spots to get the best pics and was full of informative tips to get more creative and effective photos.

We may be a little late with our review, but the memories of our tour and the pics we have since printed are a pleasant reminder of the fun we had.

Our favourite day in Lisbon !

My Tour of Old Town Lisbon was simply wonderful. It was exactly what I was wanting. Our guide took us to out of the way places that not are usually seen by the general touring public. He also offer suggestions on where to take pictures, how to take them, the perfect angle to get the best picture etc.
My tour last 3 hours and it was a please to be with out guide, he was personable, warm and a very nice person. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the Old Town of Lisbon.
