Greg was an amazing guide. We did a day-tour of the winelands, and Greg is absolutely the perfect person for this! He is incredibly knowledgeable of the region and about wine as well, and took us to amazing spots for photography as well as food :) I would not hesitate to use Greg again, and hope to keep in touch....

My girlfriend and I booked the lions head tour and we had so much fun with our guide Greg. He was very knowledgeable, showed us really nice and sometimes hidden photo spots and made sure that we got the shots we wanted to take. This tour was one of our highlights of our whole trip to Cape Town. The communication... More

I have done these tours a few times. In Paris, I have done them to find new ways of seeing things I have photographed before. In Monument Valley, I have used similar services to get the best photos I could get from a place I have never visited. The later was the case for the Cape. Greg was a very... More

Thank you for your feedback sorry to hear you the tour didn't quite meet your expectations. Please allow me to respond 1. Our services are for completely personalized private photo tours, if your wish is for a guide to 'hold you hand' so to speak that's exactly what we offer, did you ask Greg for assistance?

If you like photography, this is the best way to discover Cape Town. Greg knows the local areas very well, he's a talented photographer and I've learned more about Cape Town on my tour with Greg than on any of the organized tours of the Cape. Not to mention coming back with incredible photographs.

I was looking for a photography tour and this company stood out. The tour did not disappoint at all. From Sunrise on Signal Hill to an afternoon in Langa, Greg took me around the Cape. He showed me new ways to take photos, describing panorama techniques and software. Terrific. Now I have to implement these things. The scenery made photography... More

We did two of the three-hour guided photography walks and loved them both. The first was of the city (Bo Kaap, Company Gardens, etc) with Greg and the second was of Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens with Eric. Both tours were brilliant. Greg and Eric gave us some excellent tuition and tips and took us on two really interesting tours. The emphasis... More

I'm a repeat visitor to Cape Town and was looking for something a little off the beaten path. This was the first time I had indulged in a tour with a photographer and I had a great day with Greg.

I have recently become interested in photography, but am a complete beginner really, and when I found out about Greg's photowalks thought this would be an interesting way to spend a few hours.
