Had a wonderful time with Saurabh on a three-day photography session at the Pushkar Camel Fair. This had been a bucket destination and event for me for a couple of years, and I was not disappointed. Saurabh gave excellent guidance on many aspects of photography and shooting in this environment. I am not a novice by any extent, and found his mentorship to be very worthwhile, from subject selection, environmental context, interacting with the participants of the fair to post-production and workflow. One aspect of Saurabh's style that most impressed me was his humanity and appreciation for the subjects we were there to photography. He spoke with many of the camel traders and their families to understand their experiences at the fair. This was a critical factor in developing a relationship with these people, whom were were hoping to have as our subjects. Coming from Canada, it was a long journey to the Pushkar Camel Fair. Saurabh made this part of my trip very successful, rewarding and enjoyable. Additionally, the other participants were also wonderful, creating a very compatible small group of photographers. I highly recommend SIA Photo Tours, and would not hesitate to sign up for another tour.

Saurabh is a reliable and friendly guide. He learnt my mistakes quickly and suggested improvements from both photography and gears point of view. I did a walk for 2 hours in the flower market with loads of learning. Highly recommend this to my shutter friends.

Amazing walk(s) with Saurabh, planned initially for a 5h tour and ending up spending 11h together over 2days !!! And I could have spent more if I was not that busy with work or if my flight would have been later. Definitely a must to do in HYD !

I was back in Hyderabad on a business trip again and instead of touring around India during the weekend, I decided to stick around Hyderabad and photography some of the sites, so I booked a tour with Saurabh. Unfortunately, 2 days before the tour, Saurabh sent me a note that he had a family emergency that he had to attend to, but he got one of his colleagues to take me in his place. I was a bit bummed but I trusted that he found a suitable guide for me. Man did he ever! Naveen was friendly, very considerate and an excellent photographer. He gave me tips and tricks if I needed it and offered advice periodically but also did not hover over me. It was like I was walking around with an old photographer friend of mine. He also provided some background and history on the sites that we visited. I truly enjoyed my time on the tour as well as spending the time with Naveen. I would highly recommend a tour with Naveen!

Saurabh is a great guide! We spent 5 hours walking through the flower and vegetable market- meeting so many people. He explained some of the culture to me and really got me to be more comfortable taking photographs of people. He also took me to 2 mosques. He taught me so much about how to use my camera and more importantly, how to be confident in taking pictures in a totally different environment. This was the highlight of my trip to India!
