Francisco is an award-winning international photographer who has created a series of fully guided private walking tours through some of North Goa’s most interesting local markets and villages. On the tours he shares simple to understand (and remember) tips to truly enhance your photography skills and really boost your confidence when taking travel photographs. Much more than just photography tours – these cultural tours of Goa provide a unique insight into Goan people and places. All of the sites we visit are engaging and interesting in their own right, so non-photographers are very welcome. In addition you don't need a fancy camera to join a walking tour; point-and-shoot cameras and smartphones can also capture amazing photographs if you know the tricks and learn the right approach. A professional Canon 5D MkII camera is available for rent. The walking tours are a perfect mix of learning your camera's capabilities and perfecting your photography while enjoying local Goan life.

The trip was far better than expected, the way Francesco communicates with locals is magical. In addition, I learned to use my cannon camera and take great pictures. I will definitely use Fransesco again at the next opportunity. Thank you very much for a nice...More

This was a cool experience for a solo traveler who went to Goa during the monsoon season. A lot of the typical Goan attractions/activities are closed, so being able to visit a local market and learn about Goa, Indian culture, and travel photography was a...More

Whilst the half-day Goa tour was originally booked only for my partner; an enthusiastic amateur with a "real" camera, following a cookery-class cancellation I also attended with the expectation I'd tag along and watch the camera chaps at work. This couldn't have been more wrong,...More
