Our City Photo Tours
Our Full Day Excursions
Get out of the Big Smoke and explore the quintessentially English villages and the honey-coloured buildings of the Cotswolds on a day photography excursion. From Lacock to Castle Combe, Bibury to Bourton-on-the-Water, the region is bursting with romantic sights and inspiring towns; this is real life Harry Potter, so much so, they filmed it here!
As Claude Monet saw the countryside of Giverny from his train window in 1883 he instantly fell in love with this stunning place. The gardens invoke the artist in us all with their picturesque willow trees, water lilies, and orchards. They are as pretty as a painting... or a photograph.
Imagine picturesque medieval towns nestled between majestic mountains, olive trees, and clear blue lakes. Verona and Lake Garda are rich in history and charm and at only a little over an hour from Milan and Venice; they make a perfect day trip.
The opulent buildings and French splendour of the Loire Valley, once the playground of Kings and Queens, Nobles and Dukes, are the makings of fairytales. Grand Châteaux such as Chambord, Amboise and Chenonceau, need to be seen to be believed.
When the crowds get too much, go island hopping and discover the smaller islands in the northern Venice lagoon. The glass island of Murano feels like Venice's little brother, calmer and more relaxed, but every bit as pretty. Whereas the colourful pastel plastered facades of Burano will fill your memory cards in no time.
Once inside the gate, we will grab our cameras and head into the Château to explore the place of the fallen Kings and Queens of France and photograph the splendour that took down their rein. Bound with photographic opertunities, we will shoot like a Kong.
