It was a unique experience. The girl who took our photos, in addition to being a professional, was very sweet and helpful, she immediately put us at ease and took us to some unique places. The photos are wonderful, arrived after less than 24h and all one more beautiful than the other. Highly recommended, definitely an experience to be redone.

I did a secret proposal in Plaza de España, and I decided to book a phoyoshoot session. My photographer Alberto was very supportive, he kept the secret and helped me to decide the best spots.

Tour started on time. Small group & easy to cycle with. Good informative guide. Nice comfortable bikes with bells. Would recommend.

Excellent photo shooting! She is doing her best to take pictures of my family. It is more than worth the money.

Great trip and informative. The seats were uncomfortable for 1 hour.
