We booked a two hour photo tour of Venice through Get Your Guide. The weather was very overcast that day with some intermittent light rain... I was nervous how the day would turn out & if my wife would enjoy the photography. In short, Vinicio's photography tour ended up being one of our absolute favorite things that we did on our ten-day European trip (Paris, Venice, Amalfi Coast & Rome) - I strongly recommend it!!! We travel very frequently (and always take our Canon DSLRs along). The vast majority of our vacation pictures end up being of our young kids. On this trip, however, the kids weren't allowed along (Paris work event). We joked with Vinicio that we weren't exactly sure what we were going to take pictures of on our trip without the kids there. :-). He not only provided a lot of good tips on DSLR settings & composition techniques, but also showed us a side of Venice that we quite honestly would not have appreciated. The pictures turned out great & we loved the tour
The session was just with ourselves and Venicio, the photographer. He showed me features on our camera that I did not know about, and the photos taken, with his guidance and expertise, are brilliant. He was such a nice person and so knowledgable about the areas we went to, it was also a personal tour of Venice away from the tourist routes. It has given me a new desire to take more creative photos.
Our photo guide did an excellent job in showing parts of Venice that tourists may not often see. She was very knowledgeable about many aspects of Venice and how to get the best photos. She provided us with many wonderful images of Venice that we will always cherish. I would highly recommend taking pictures of Venice using a knowledgeable guide that knows where and how to get the best shots.
The only downside is that the guide was too pressed. Generally interesting visit. The gondola ride lacked explanations
Nice experience on carnival day. We were able to enjoy streets without the crowdsupzr
