What you’re saying about us

After each photo tour we request each of our clients to complete an evaluation form and return their favorite images for our photo gallery. Our clients experience the best that photographic adventure has to offer. Many of them travel with us year after year – here’s why:

I'd like to add my thanks: to my photo leaders, for teaching me new skills and boosting my confidence, to Leonel for sharing your abundant knowledge of and love for your country, to Jacque for flawless (yes, flawless!) organization of the trip, and to all of my new friends, for welcoming me into your lives to share this adventure. I know this won't be the last trip for you, and so I'm sharing a photo that I did last summer, with hope that when I round the next bend, I'll find you all waiting there to share another journey with me.

Hello Friends,

I arrived home at midnight on Saturday with all of my countless photos, aged rum, colorful souvenirs, and fabulous memories safe and sound!  It was a spectacular trip back to Cuba to see much more than I had seen six years ago.  My countless thanks to the photo leaders, local guide, and Strabo Tours for all of the photo expertise, technical assistance, cultural information, and great planning.

Based on your advice I had everything I needed for the trip. Greetings upon arrival were great as well as all transportation, group size was also good. Local guide, Cathy & Gordon worked well as a team and were very laid back which I very much appreciated. Variety of locations was also great. We got useful tips on camera care and shooting for the environment.

Guides were both wonderful. Local guide is such a talented young man and the driver was friendly and provided lots of information about Lofoten. Locations were wonderful, bedrooms a bit small but nice shared space. Wonderful trip even though the weather was cold, we had a good time and many fine moments for photography. Some of the beauty is actually due to the less pleasant weather.

Hard to say what the highlight of the trip was, the scenery was breathtaking and I enjoyed it all. It was interesting to see the leader's workflow process. Also very helpful when I asked questions in the field. I've traveled with other photo tour compaies (and other general tour companies) and the information you provide before the trip - country info, suggested reading, culture etc. is far and away much better than any other. Your help with pre-planning was also great. Guides did a great job getting us to iconic spots. Only suggestion is to work in some scenic churches for variety.

One of my favorite places on our trip was our overnight to Miyajima Island. For many reasons, but one of the main points was it was our first introduction to the iconic Japanese Maples in their full color. And what a sight it was. Local guide was terrific, enjoyed her knowledge and sense of humor. She did her upmost to make sure we saw Japan and its culture.

Karen, thank you for everything.  As I have said before, you are the most generous photographer I have met with your dedication and desire to share information.

It’s always enlightening and enjoyable listening to you and discussing things. The vast majority of time, after attending a workshop (which I rarely do anymore), l leave feeling discouraged and overwhelmed. However, there is something about your approach that, following time spent w/you, I go away encouraged and motivated. It’s a bonus to get applicable business contact info, and some written reference material, but it’s the feeling of, “hmmm, I can do this...”, that makes all the difference. And for that, I thank -you. Glenn, freelance photographer
