Beautiful Beacon Hill Tour
Lisa G, 06-11-2022
We had an amazing time touring and taking pictures on our walk through Beacon Hill. Saba was an amazing guide and her love of the area and its history and architecture really shined through! Saba gave us great tips for creatively taking photos to really enhance our pictures. It was truly the highlight of our quick trip to Boston. We would tour with her again if we find ourselves back in the city!
Does not disappoint!

Loved this tour! Saba clearly knows the area very well be gives really good tips on how to get good, interesting photos. I would have booked additional tours with her if they lined up with my schedule (and weren’t already sold out)! Beacon hill is a treasure trove for photos! Saba also had really good historical inputs that were very interesting. I cannot recommend enough, to try to do this tour in the week leading up to hallowe’en for a really unique experience. I have never seen such elaborate halloween and beautiful autumn decorations in such abundance. You could barely go Kors than a house without seeing a display. It was a really added treat. The fallen leaves and autumn colours also really added to the photos. If I get an opportunity to return to Boston, I will definitely book one of Saba’s other tours or even take this one again in a different season.
Unexpected Pleasure

What can I say! This tour is filled with the history of Beacon Hill but that’s just the beginning. Saba , our tour director, was also photography teacher and photo stylist for the whole group. Personable and approachable, Saba whetted my interest in finding artful compositions of these beautiful settings without my knowing it. This was the highlight of our week in Boston; one we will not soon forget. If you have the opportunity, this is the tour to take. Tom/Kentucky
A Picture Perfect Tour!

What a wonderful way to learn some history of Beacon Hill while being drawn to look at the architectural and natural beauty. We went on a magnificent October day with bright blue skies. Saba pointed out sights easily missed yet easily captured on an iPhone. For example, the windows of historic buildings or even a highly polished door knocker reflecting the vibrant fall leaves and beautiful blue skies. Her fun and gentle nature, ease of explaining photographic tips, and her knowledge of this area’s history made this tour a real highlight of our visit to Boston.
Great tour
