Is this a photography or informational tour?
Photo Tours is a photography company. We are a great introduction to New York City and we will provide you with information and tips on how to navigate the city but our emphasis is on providing you with the highest quality photographs of your New York City experience. Each photo tour will be customized to fit your needs. Your personal photographer will show you the iconic sights, museums, galleries, shops, and restaurants of New York City.
What is included in the tour?
You will receive a friendly and knowledgeable photo tour of New York City. Your photo tour will last a minimum of one hour and you can book your tour to last as long as you wish. During your tour, we will take you to the sights and attractions you wish to see and photograph you during this time. After your tour ends, we will professionally edit your photos to look their finest and then we will download all of your photos on a flash drive. We will deliver your flash drive to your mailing address. In addition, prints, videos, and a professionally bound fine art quality printed photobook will be available for purchase to anyone on your tour. All of your subway and taxi fares will be paid for by your photographer.

Would you tell me more about your fine art prints & photobook?
Our fine art prints and photobook is what sets Photo Tours above any other tour company in New York City. Our prints are made with the latest cutting edge digital technology. Our printers use the widest possible color space currently being used. While most prints use a four color printing process, Photo Tours uses ten colors; including four separate blacks resulting in unrivaled velvety depth, plus orange and green; which aids in the rendition of beautiful and accurate skin tones. Furthermore, the dot matrix of our prints is far finer than prints made in a conventional chemical darkroom. Your photos will exhibit a smooth and seamless quality that far exceeds current mass market print standards. While our fine art prints and photobooks are costlier than others, they are an investment that will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.
Where do we meet?
We can arrange to meet you at your hotel or anywhere else in the city that you would like to begin your tour. In order to maximize your photographic opportunities, we suggest a location where you would like the photo tour to begin.
What happens during inclement weather?
We will try to reschedule the tour for a different hour or a different day. If we are unable to reschedule the tour, we will provide a full refund.
How will we travel around the city?
There are many ways to get around New York City. We can walk, ride the subway, or take taxis. (Taxis do not allow more than four people per cab.) Would you like to be chauffeured in a limousine, fly in a helicopter or sail on a boat? Call us so we customize your Luxe Tour.
What clothing shall we wear?
Wear clothing that is, first, weather appropriate. Secondly, we suggest that you wear clothes that you would like to be photographed in. You can dress casually or formally. We do not recommend clothing with logos, complicated patterns, or bright colors. Because the city can display a wide range of backdrops for your photographs, we suggest dressing in simple, solid, neutral colors. Dressing with simplicity helps to make you stand out and allows your photographs to be their best. Also, don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes if you plan on walking for an extended period of time. In addition, we suggest that you do not wear sunglasses or bring any other accessories on your tour.
What are the payment terms?
Payment is due in full at the time of purchase. Payment is refundable if we need to cancel due to inclement weather and are unable to reschedule. In addition, if you have ordered a photobook, your payment will be refunded. All other payments are non-refundable.
How helpful are your photographers?
Your photographer will provide you with suggestions and friendly advice on how to make your stay in New York City a rewarding one. We can assist you in places to shop, restaurants to visit, where to purchase theatre tickets, or with any other questions that you have during your tour. Photo Tours will make your experience in the Big Apple unforgettable.
