Christian was our tour guide and he was great. We went to some very beautiful places. The trip is a photography tour and no matter what type of camera you have, he will show you how to take great pictures. Whether you have a camera phone, a point and click or very elaborate camera, he did a great job educating us on the capabilities. He showed us how to highlight features and find textures in nature to include. He was very knowledgeable about each location we visited which allowed us to learn about each site as well as learn ways to photograph it. It is a small tour group so there is time to ask questions as well as learn. I would recommend this tour to others.
