Alan was an excellent photographer and made the shoot enjoyable and relaxing. He was extremely helpful in putting us at ease. We thoroughly enjoyed the photo shoot and look forward to the product

Extremely convenient way to get to the more popular sites in the city. Decent audio commentary is available (be sure to grab the headphones as you get on the bus).
