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:

"Boyd Norton: He is a great group leader, especially for Tanzania. He knows the area and the people so well that makes everything smooth. …. Boyd also arranges to leave early each morning to catch the best light for photography, which is great for me."

“The trip to Tanzania went far beyond our already high expectations!  Each day was filled with wonder and excitement – we lost track of time and moved into a world beyond imagining.  You were super hosts and made our visit even more special – something we will always remember!!”

A talented instructor, a guide of many gifts, a driver of care and kindness, the company of interesting artists, and a lovely home to stay in with extraordinary cooking!!!

Jacque, I can't say enough about how wonderful our bus driver Tommy, and guide Connie were to us during our 10 days. (Impeccable professionals and perfect gentleman to help us at any moment.) Also, Emmajane was a fabulous chef and Alan's home was just perfect for our group. We walked to town for music in the evenings. Our instructor Kathleen Jacobs, was generous with her expertise and flexible enough to assess each students needs.

This experience exceeded expectations. Not only were the Irish scenes spectacular, but it was just the perfect mix of touring the countryside and painting instruction. The bus was extremely comfortable. Thanks! I hope you consider offering more painting-based trips, in addition to your photography classes.

On this, our third trip with Ron and Strabo, I observed a dimension I hadn't noticed before: flexibility. Ron (and Ingo) were able to dance with the weather. Then I got to thinking. Flexibility, yes, but against a background of careful planning: accommodations, meals, even catering to allergies. I have done enough "self-guided" tours to appreciate what that means.  As Strabo tourists, we simply sat back and watched the ever-changing scenery. And it was a big plus that both guides had visited sites many times before.

Again, I thank you for your efforts. We have traveled with other tours. Strabo is by far the best for people like us.


Cuba was a wonderful experience that was much enriched by Strabo Tours.  I was stunned by the amount of photographs to be made:  people, architecture, close ups, horticulture, and, of course, the cars from the 40’s and 50’s that were everywhere. It was definitely a wonderful experience.


An outstanding trip that takes you back in time to a place filled with great music, colorful architecture, cars and a revolutionary spirit.


Strabo’s trip to Cuba will be one you will never forget. There are photo ops galore. While Cuba may be economically deprived, it is culturally rich.


Many thanks to you both for helping us discover Cuba; it was such a rich and exotic experience! We will enjoy the memories and the photos for many years to come.

I really appreciate that I was able to take Betty's Iceland trip. This was quite an experience. Nohting but high praise for everything about this trip.
