Rudy is super informative (he knows a lot about the history of Antigua Guatemala and is happy to share) and has excellent recommendations on how to enhance your photos. The tour we took was geared toward beginners but if you let Rudy know your skill level and any preferences before the tour, he is happy to customize it to fit your interests / skill level.

I was primarily taking pictures with my i-phone but the 2 friends that I was with has professional cameras. He had great recommendations for all of us.

I highly recommend this tour!

Rudy is an excellent educator in photography. I have already worked as a professional photographer and learned from him (of course, it's a life-learning process). He will also point out some of the best places in Antigua to photograph that aren't know by everyone. I am also doing his Dia de Los Muertos photography tour and looking forward to that.

I booked a photowalk for 3 hours in Antigua on my own and it was all worth the money! In my opinion the explanation of theory in the beginning is good because it reminds you of the secrets of how to place things perfectly in the picture so it looks wonderful.
Afterwards we explored the streets to test everything in reality. I've learned a lot during that walk and Rudy was a very patient teacher and explained a lot! Furthermore, it is really nice to see Rudy's passion for photography...it was contagious ;-)
In my opinion 3 hours are a really good period of time for the walk because while practicing it is easier to memorise all the secrets of taking good pictures!
Thank you very much, Rudy, now I am capable of taking even better pictures and how to handle my camera appropriate in many different situations!

The Photo Walk was a great experience! With humour, good spots and of course a lot of interesting information about photography and the city Rudy showed Antigua to us in a different and very nice way. The group was perfectly sized, everyone had the chance to learn and participate actively. Thanks a lot!
