I highly recommend this tour because in addition to seeing some really beautiful architecture and hearing the history behind it, we also received some very cool tips on how to take some pictures that pop. The tour flew by and we have some great memories and wonderful pictures to remember our time in Boston. Thank you Saba for a great tour!


We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would do it again to see and hear everything twice. Saba’s knowledge and communication style are exemplary, and the variety of sites and sounds was magnificent. We would have been happy to spend the whole day with her!!


Saba was very knowledgeable and took me places I wouldn't have known how to find on my own. Like the dog who lives in the Copley Plaza Hotel. Beacon Hill and the Back Bay. She was lovely also.


We had a great time. Even with cold and windy weather it was fun! The guide was very knowledgeable on Boston's history and contemporary events. She showed us spots with awesome views, had many stories about buildings, Bostonians, as well as about traveling all over the world. She recommended great restaurant for our lunch. She was a fountain of knowledge. We highly recommend this tour.


We have just completed a trip with Saba and couldn’t recommend highly enough. We are a father and son (15) with an interest in architecture and photography therefore the few hours spent exploring the area were perfect. I hadn’t realised it would just be the two of us, consequently the time was extremely personal and tailor made to our taste. Saba has an absolute wealth of knowledge of the local area therefore this was almost a history, architecture and photography lesson in equal measure. We have visited Boston on many occasions however felt the need to extend our knowledge of the area and to maybe see areas we were yet to discover which was positively achieved on this tour. Saba spent lengthy periods explaining photography techniques to my son which he embraced throughout the trip. As a result the best photos taken during our trip to Boston were definitely taken in the company of Saba or certainly with her influence. If you are in Boston and have an interest in architecture (or the history of architecture) then I would highly recommend. A big thank you from Neil & Sonny!


There is a reason PhotoWalks Tour (Saba) has 5 stars across the board. It's rare when you meet someone for the first time and they feel like an old friend. We were greeted with a warm smile which made us feel comfortable immediately. Her knowledge as a guide is incredible and her photography skills are beyond reproach. She helped us create wonderful memories and photos that will last us a lifetime. Without a doubt we will be contacting Saba again when we return to Boston.


We loved this tour! Saba was amazing - so friendly and very informative! We learned so much about the sites we visited. She was a wealth of knowledge. She also gave really good tips about how to get good photos and even shared photo editing app info. I’m so glad we chose this tour.


Saba is the best! Her tour took us to unique locations, which came alive with the stories and history that she shared. We learned a lot about capturing unique photos, using interesting angles and taking advantage of natural light. We were early in a 10-night cruise and Saba's was the #1 tour of our entire trip! So glad it was early because we used what she taught us in every other location we visited. Thank you Saba!

This was the best tour we have done so far in Boson. Our guide, Saba, was absolutely wonderful. Not only was she incredibly kind, but also knowledgeable and provided a wonderful experience. She took several great photos of us that I will plan to print and frame. I have nothing but great things to say, and will remember this experience forever. 10/10 recommendation!


Our guide Sada was very friendly, very knowledgeable and shared lots of information in an interesting and fun way. Her knowledge of photography and use of I phone technology was second to none, and resulted in some memorable pictures that we will treasure.
