Additional Information hide

Photo Safari Guides are professional photographers who have a passion for photography and teaching, not tour quides. Their goal is not only to help you take home memories of Manhattan but to take home skills that last a lifetime. While Photo Safaris take place in historically significant locations, they are photography workshops rather than walking tours or a substitute for a guided historical tour.

Participants must bring their own camera on the tour. Digital point and shoot, D-SLR or SLR cameras are all acceptable. Additional suggested items to bring include the following: memory cards (formatted and ready to go); extra batteries; a mini tripod; the camera's manual; and, a small pocket size note pad and pen. Participant's in the Times Square After Dark Safari must bring a full size tripod.

All Safaris are family friendly, however participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Tours include ½ to 3 miles of walking depending on the Safari selected.
