I had the pleasure of the company of the lovely Noemi for my night photography tour. I have some knowledge of photographic techniques but have never successfully tried long exposure shots at night. With Noemi's expert help I learnt what effect different ISO settings, f numbers and exposure times have on the outcome of a photo. With the reminders I should be confident in capturing fantastic night time photos. Thank you and thank Noemi for my tour.

It was a fascinating tour of London at night, with Andrei giving us wonderful tips on photography at night. It was a very cold evening, but the three hours we spent with him were well worth putting up with the cold. Learning better ways to set the camera was eye opening for us, being only casual photographers. Another plus for us was that the wide angle lens on the camera stopped working properly, so Andrei was able to use his lens on the camera so we could continue to take pictures. We would recommend the tour to others!

Although the weather was uncooperative, opportunities were presented for unplanned approaches. Andrei was great with providing tips for honing in on manual mode adjustments. The subject locations were awesome rendering great photos. I would highly recommend Aperture Tours to visitors.

Vianney was absolutely fantastic. We are both seasoned photographers and were not sure what to expect as we have not taken night scenes before. However Vianney blew us away with his enthusiasm, passion, experience & creativity. He got us to think in ways we would never have considered and taught us amazing new ways of looking at things. The tour was three hours of fun and learning. We covered quite a few of London’s highlights and took a wide range of photographs, from the classic postcard shots to more creative images. This tour is highly recommended, it’s also really good value for 2 or 3 people. If you are lucky enough to have Vianney as your guide, even better, he is such a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and experience photographer

This "tour" delivered much more than I expected. With only a few days in Lonaon I booked this tour to more easily get some night shots in the city. While this was achieved to my absolute satisfaction I gained much more from the tour. I was extremely impressed by the experience of my guide. Extemley knowlegeable about photography and very familiar with the locations. More importantly though was the fact that my guide in the first few minutes of our meeting quickly determined what I wanted to achieve, but even more importantly, accurately assessed my experience and skill level and tailored the evening to suit. As a result it was a very enjoyable and informative time. I finished the evening absolutely totally satisfied with the experience I understood my camera to the extent that I was quite comfortable with all the important settings but I had never shot in manual mode very often. By the end of the evening I felt completely confident to shoot in manual mode and for the remaining two weeks of my tour I was so pleased with the techniques that I learnt .. it significantly improved my photography But the most impressive aspect of the tour was that as we talked about photography during the evening it was evident that the skills of my guide were such that it woudnt matter wether you were a novice or highly experienced you would be guaranteed a great tour because the guides can respond to your requirements. I cant give a strong enough recommendation. The only very small negative was that I booked a tripod to be supplied because I needed to travel light and the tripod wasnt really up to the windy conditions, but given the learnings I obtained from the evening this was inconsequential

Hi there, and thank you very much for your review and recommendation! We are very happy to hear you got what you came for and then some and that your photography skills improved! In terms of the tripod, for logistical reasons and because of the length of the tour we tend to carry lighter tripods, however we take your note to heart and will review our equipment. Your recommendation is very much appreciated!
