Great experience.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour, thanks! Eva
So glad I did this!
Darcy_J, Jul 2022
Eva was amazing, everything I expected and more. She shared so many tips on how to take the perfect photos and helped you to do it yourself. I highly recommend this!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Darcy, it's been a pleasure to meet you and hope that your 'homework' was successful :) Eva
Wonderful Experience in Florence
Robert_G, May 2022
It was awesome in having a opportunity to be reintroduced to photography techniques I knew but have been sloppy in using them. Eva brought those techniques clearly in picture taking and had wonderful stories that reinforced the learnings. The time flies by quickly and you are immersed into the craft of taking great pictures. This is definitely worth taking to see Florence in a unique perspective.

Hi Bob, thanks for your time and dedication and hope that your black and white photography mission goes well!
Excellent l!

Fab photo tour in Florence
Juliette S, Aug 2019
Eva was a wonderful teacher and guide. She gave us truly useful tips on how to take successful architectural photos which are a little different from the standard shots. She took us to some excellent places and also recommended a super bar for us to visit at the end of our tour. She was very patient and talented. So pleased to have found her tour.
Eva is Wonderful!
Dianne_D, Jul 2019
Eva was a terrific guide. She impressed us with her expertise & her photo tips. The tour was well-organized & she made it fun. With Eva, we explored unique spots in the city as well as the iconic PonteVecchio. We highly recommend this photo walk & will be doing another one with her when we come back next year.
Florence private photo walk
rob321, Jun 2019
The Florence private photo walk with Eva was fantastic. Eva started by finding out what sort of level of photographer I am and what I wanted from the experience and since I know my camera fairly well, we could concentrate on the artistic side (composition, framing, picking the best location for the light, etc). Her instruction was very clear and specific to my needs/wants, so the whole experience was very relevant, informative and fun. In addition to the photography instruction, Eva gave some interesting facts and information about Florence and some history of photography in Florence (and Italy). For anyone interested in improving their photography skills, whether technical, artistic or all aspects, I would highly recommend the Florence private photo walk with Eva. I honestly believe that I learnt and understood more in this 4 hours than I have watching endless hours of You Tube instructional videos.

Eva did a wonderful job of meeting our level of expertise and gave us a wonderful tour and many helpful ideas which we were able to use throughout the rest of our trip, as well as when we got home.
My favorite tour (of 5) in Florence
Cindy_J, May 2019
Eva was lovely to spend time with, but, more importantly, she taught me a lot in a short time. She helped me improve my photo composition enormously, providing several opportunities to practice throughout the city. She even taught me a few tricks to get the most out of my iPhone 10. I came home with some great photographs but also some easy rules of thumb for good photo composition. I also loved the fact that Eva referenced Florence photo history. I did several Florence tours through Viator and I feel as thought there was 70% content overlap between them. But Florence is such an interesting city with such a rich history - not every tour has to reference the Vasari corridor and the building of the Duomo! Eva's tour brought a whole new dimension to the city and its history. This was the highlight of my five days in Florence!

Janet R, Oct 2018
Two friends and I spent a truly wonderful 6 hours with Eva. We learnt some really valuable photographic skills and techniques and also saw parts of Florence that we would not have discovered by ourselves. During the time we spent with Eva one member of our group went from being not particularly interested in photography to becoming totally engaged in the experience and spent the remainder of our time in Italy totally 'hooked'. Eva is knowledgeable, patient and gracious with her time and skills. She very readily and easily managed our quite diverse skill set, personalities and equipmentI I would highly recommend taking her Florence Private Photo Walk. Thank you so much Eva!

Had a great couple of hours with Eva. She tailored the tour to meet our specific needs and explained things in a very easy, clear way to understand. Thoroughly recommend this tour as it really gave us a different perspective on capturing Florence in photographs.

Julie_N, Aug 2018
Eva was a delight! We spent a couple of hours together during which she gave me wonderful photo tips. She showed me how to photograph architectural features, how to select some interesting foreground, and provided a information about light, connecting light features with the times around sunrise and sunset. Overall a wonderful experience which I highly recommend for someone interested in improving their travel photos!

Kathleen H, Jun 2018
Eva was amazing! My husband and I signed up for the 4-hour Private Photo Walking tour with her. I recently purchased a digital DLSR and this time, instead of randomly snapping pictures of everything, I really wanted to shoot photos in manual mode that would capture interesting composition ......something that would tell a story in each of my photo. I wouldn't be able to do this in a group tour. Eva was able to custom tailor our needs to include the understanding of exposure triangle, leading lines, artistic composition and not to mention how to photograph blue hour and golden hour. But she also shared with us the rich history of Florence. Going on a private photography tour with her was the smartest decision I have made. Came back with many photos with a WOW factor. THank you, THank you, EVA!!!

Julian N, Mar 2018
Eva was great at tailoring the sights and content to my style and level of experience. Although I like to think I know a fair bit about photography, Eva found a few concepts and techniques for composition and lighting that were revelations to me. She also reveals a few obscure nooks and crannies to achieve some memorable perspectives of Florence. Thoroughly recommended.

Deborah R, Jan 2018
We were late for this tour due to a significantly delayed train. However, Eva was fantastically flexible and we organized a delayed tour for later in the evening. We still enjoyed over 2 hours with Eva and I learnt a lot about different ways to take fabulous photos of Florence and used these techniques on the rest of our holiday. My husband, who isn't into photography at all, came along and also quite enjoyed the experience. I would definitely recommend taking a tour with Eva. I also can't thank her enough for being so flexible with the train delay and allowing us to do the tour later on.

Dennis M, Oct 2017
Eva was superb! We spent 4 hours taking wonderful photos and I learned so much from Eva. I consider myself an intermediate photographer, but I learned so much about how to really take photos in a city like Florence. My guide shared her secrets that will certainly lead to me being a better photographer. Her sharing of the history of photos in Florence was exhilarating. The tour ended with sunset shots from Plaza Michelangelo. We took photos from different vantage points. I highly recommend this great tour. Eva is an excellent photographer also.

jngelberg, Aug 2017
One of the best experience of our three week trip. We did not want to do the typical tourist tour in florence but there is a lot to see and understand. With Eva we got not only the history and sights around florence but lessons in photographic composition, lighting, timing, and photography details. I personally have had no technical training and used my iPhone while my husband, an amateur photographer, and my daughter who took photography classes used a more sophisticated camera and all of us were able to improve our photography without getting bored. She also gives us hits on how to be a model for a photo and how to capture that moment that makes a subject look great -- both walking and sitting. A great tour and ideal for improving photos for the rest of Italy.
Our experience with Eva was nothing...
Janet J, Jun 2017
Our experience with Eva was nothing short of spectacular! Before the date of our tour, she contacted me by email to set the time. She chatted back and forth through email about my experience and what I was hoping to shoot in Florence. She met me right on time at a central location. Her English is EXCELLENT, so it was very easy to communicate with her. She had me take some sample shots and talk about my comfort level with my camera and decided we should work on composition. We went to several location, and ended up at the Ponte Vechhio view point for sunset and blue hour. I knew it was going to be a full moon, so I ended up staying after the tour ended to wait for the moon to come out from behind the clouds. It was well worth it. Eva really took the time to talk about composition, and fully explained golden hour and blue hour in an easy to understand way, and taught me how to make the most of the beautiful light. If I get back to Florence I would LOVE to spend more time with Eva! I'm glad I did this tour at the beginning of our trip, it improved my picture for the entire trip.

Bilal H, Nov 2016
Eva was the most considerate, approachable, enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide I have come across yet. The tour was truly tailored to me in every way, and Eva was incredibly proactive, helping to make the most of my whistle stop tour, despite the rain! Highly recommend! Great fun/day out!

Hui_W, Sep 2016
Eva gave me an excellent tour. She tailored tour based on my needs. She shared her secret shooting spots, which is super valuable for a visitor. She gave plenty of good/bad examples, which is super helpful for someone visual like me. Beyond all of the above, her passion for photography is super inspiring. I'd highly recommend her tour to anyone.
