5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This tour help me become a better photographer. My guide had studied photography up to the Masters level and is working as a photojournalist for a major European newspaper. This tour is NOT about walking around Vienna and taking good pictures about all the typical tourist sites. Rather, after looking at the photographs I had already taken during my trip, my guide took me to different places in Vienna and challenge me to take different pictures in different ways from what I would normally do. This resulted in me beginning to think differently about photography and by the end of the tour my guide had given me five or six issues to think about when I'm taking photographs. I was able to begin using what I learned during the tour right away and as a result I took different and better photographs that I would've taken if I had not going on the tour. This tour is one of the best I've ever gone on and I plan to look for more tours like this when I go to other places.
