What makes or breaks any walking tour is the guide, and Mr. Diallo was energetic, funny, and personable. His passion for photography was clear, and he gave good pointers on how to take better photos. As we walked through the park, he provided the...continued

We were pleasantly surprised. We've been taking pictures for years, but we learned new things about our equipment and compostion, and had several opportunities to put it into practice. It was well worth the time and money.

What a rewarding and informative experience! Ibrahima Diallo shared both his extensive knowledge about Central Park and NYC as well as photography. We had a beautiful afternoon as we strolled, tried different shots, and critiqued them as we...continued

I had a blast on this tour. My mom and I were the only two on the tour so Craig was able to give us a lot of personal attention. He was an awesome, friendly guide filled with facts about Central Park History and how to capture the best photos. ...continued

I had a great time with a great teacher! And I was lucky, because I was the only guest! Unfortunally the weather was really bad. The good thing about bad weather you see the Central Park nearly empty!

This was one of the best things that we have done in New York. Our guide was passionate about photography and New York. He catered for all levels of experience and all camera types (from SLRs to iPhones).

I felt most of the focus was on our guides photos that he has taken and a lot of critiquing of our photos. I thought it was going to be more about showing great places to take photos and a few pointers on how to get better photos.

My friend loved it!
Sunset drops a lot of romantic and fabulous shadows of city. It felt like you are behind the mirror watching from a different world how night little by little takes over and lights up its power...
Just enjoy!

It was a bitterly cold day and any others that had intended to take this tour, cancelled out, so I had the guide all to myself. I learned a great deal about my camera and taking photos in the park. Ibrahima was terrific, and he really knew his...continued

Beyond our expectations. I thought it would be just a walking tour with a few photographic hints but instead, we really got a practical and good-quality photography lesson. Ibrahimi Diallo is fun, attentive and passionate about NYC and...continued

I met with David and I was the only person on the tour. As we went on our tour, it was clear David was definitely very knowledgeable about Central Park. He gave me quite a bit of information I hadn't known about the Park, although I have been to...continued

This was an exceptional experience. Mr. Diallo's knowledge of photography and of Central Park in particular and NYC in general was beyond anything I expected. I learned things about my camera that I read in the manual but had forgotten or never...

I was looking forward to this, although a native New Yorker, it would have been a new experience for me, but the tour guide never showed and of course the tour never went off, but I must say that goldstar was excellent and my money was returned...continued

Enthusiastic and expert photographer helped everyone understand how to utilize their own cameras' settings - whether an iPhone or a multi-lens - beyond the point and shoot default mode and gave great tips for taking better photos. Overall, a...continued
