Amazing Paris ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Had a wonderful 3 hours with Alexander and Julia wandering Paris - had a lot of fun and picked up many tips from them both and saw a part of Paris I would otherwise not have seen. Can highly recommend this tour to budding photographers or someone who just wants to see a different part of Paris from a photographer's perspective.

Day and Night Photography Tour ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was an exceptional tour! I met up with Alexander and loved my experience covering many beautiful areas of the city. Alexander is more than capable of working with any level of photography experience. In addition, his knowledge of history made the tour very interesting. 
All though I shot many beautiful photos, I would like to express how compassionate and caring Alexander was with me. I am an experienced photographer and know things can go wrong. I had a few problems with my equipment and he was right there helping me resolve my issues. At the Louvre, I lost my battery and without hesitation, he pulled his battery from his own camera so I could keep shooting. 

I ended up doing more tours with Aperture and found the tours were consistently wonderful and fun!

Great way to spend a birthday ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We took the combined tour and has an incredible time. Not only did we see so much of Paris, but Alexander has a true love for the beauty of the city as well as the history and is incredibly generous in sharing his knowledge and passion. We logged a lot of steps, saw incredible things and ate some amazing food. I would highly recommend this tour and look forward to seeing other cities with these guys at some point.

Brilliant Photography Tour ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had my photography night tour with Alexander, he sat me down to get a good understanding of my photography so he give me the right amount of knowledge to improve and assist my photography going forward. We wondered the street taking some amazing photos and learnt quiet a bit, which will help me with taking Christmas market photos. Alexander is also has a good knowledge of Paris history which really appealed to me as I love history. This is well worth the time to do this tour, so much so I just booked in for Amsterdam! Thanks Alex!

Mont Saint-Michel Photo Excursion ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was taking another tour of France and wanted to stay longer at Mont Saint-Michel for sunset and evening pictures. Aperture was very flexible in making arrangements that fit for me. Alexander took me to a lot of great photo locations and made a lot of good suggestions for composition, etc. This was the highlight of my trip to France.
