We don’t know about you, but 2019 sure has been one heck of a year – and we’re barely halfway through. Between us, we’ve already got our sights set on 2020, mainly because we’ve added a whole new bunch of photography tours and we can’t wait to explore these new spots with you guys.
(In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve also updated our website to include awesome new features like the activity meter for each tour, style of tour and group size).
Hokkaido Tancho Photo Tour
Yes, you’ve read that right – we’re bringing back our Hokkaido tour! Think tranquil, snowy Japanese landscapes lined with impressive mountains, majestic Whopper swans, Stellar’s sea eagles, white-tailed eagles and red-crowned cranes that seem to dance elegantly around the beautiful Lake Kussharo lake. This tour will also give you the opportunity to stay at a traditional onsen hotel and the chance to sample fresh, authentic Hokkaido fare.
Portugal Photo Tour
We’re especially excited about our newest European tour to the beautiful and history-rich cities of Lisbon, Porto and Algarve. Each city offers its own charm and traditions – Lisbon’s steep hills and colourful tile-lined facades make for wonderful street photography, Porto’s laidback seaside-town vibe has some of the most stunning sunsets we’ve seen and Algarve’s raw seaside beauty is absolutely unparalleled.
Galapagos Wildlife Photo Tour
Adding on to our list of exotic locales is the Galapagos islands, the world’s most biodiverse destination and the best for wildlife-viewing and photography. A province of Ecuador, the archipelago lies 1,000km off its coast and because it is so remote, is home to a diversity of plant and animal species, many of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. This tour will reveal landscapes you would never see anywhere else, and the chance to interact with wildlife like sea lions and giant sea tortoises. You definitely don’t want to miss this one.
Osaka & Kyoto Street Culture Photo Tour
Have the best of both worlds on this photography tour that will allow you to toggle between the buzz of modern Japan and the tranquil traditions of her yesteryear. In Osaka, see the streets come alive at night as her citizens come out to play, amidst larger-than-life entertainment quarters, neon-lit video game parlous and karaoke centres. Then take a breather in Kyoto where you’ll have the chance to see geishas in traditional garb, witness ancient tea ceremonies and visit UNESCO-protected temples.
Mayan Culture Photo Tour
We’ve been to some really exotic destinations around the world, but our Mayan culture tour definitely ranks high on the list. Not many have the chance to visit the sites of one of the greatest civilisations the world has ever known to marvel in their unique architecture. This tour will also take you to the famous beaches of Cancun where you’ll have the chance to revel in some summer fun.
