Boston Photo Walk Tour

While visiting my Boston University student son a few years ago, I decided to take a local tour. My hotel room had a recent issue of Where Magazine which listed a tour company called Photo Walks ( The owner, Saba Alhadi, was delightful. It turned out to be a slow day for her, so I was her only client. She gave me a personal tour of the Back Bay and photo lessons on how to take the best shots of the sights.

It was such a wonderful tour, I booked the Beacon Hill tour for the following day. This time there were three of us touring together with Saba. We had an interesting and informative tour with photo lessons. We strolled through the cobbled streets, taking pictures of the gorgeous architecture and amazing gardens of Boston.

Saba is a patient, kind tour guide and gifted photographer. Next time I am in Boston, I will definitely book one of her tours.
