Reviews for Cecile
Incredible Experience! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A friend and I booked a photography tour thru Aperture Tours for two different cities we visited during our European vacation; Lisbon, Portugal, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am fairly new to digital photography, at least from a "more than point and shoot" perspective. My friend had used different photography tour companies during previous trips, and told me he thought I would not only enjoy the tour, as it shows you a city from a more "camera" perspective than a "tourist" one, and that I would probably also gain experience and improve my photographic skills from a technical level. He could not have been more correct.
A day or two prior to our scheduled tour, I received an email from Aperture Tours, asking to confirm the details of the tour, verifying the meeting place for the tour, and providing contact information for our guide.
In Lisbon, we were led by Cecile Lopes, who was friendly, knowledgeable, and made the entire tour both entertaining and educational. At the beginning of the tour, we had a brief discussion about our goals for the morning... Cecile listened as I described my photographic experience level, and my interest in gaining her assistance in improving my photography from a technical level (helping to understand better how F-Stop, Shutter Speed, ISO, etc, affect a photograph). The time seemed to fly by, and I believe I took some of the best photographs I have ever taken.
In short, I would highly recommend Aperture Tours, and will use their services again when I am a city where they operate.
