We joined Oleg and Robert for a 7 days photography tour in beautiful Slovenia. Number of tour members was just right. They know where and when to go for the best shots. Sunrises and sunsets at the right spots and good timing. Besides, they share their knowledge and advanced our photographic skills. They also chose some good places for food and had great fun. Thank you for an enjoyable, considering, caring, funny and crazy accompany. We plan to join them again for the next trip.
Tour to Slovenia in 2019 was the first photo tour in my life, as I started to learn photography only half a year ago. I chose it because I was greatly impressed by stunning landscape photos of Oleg in his Instagram, and during the tour we visited these beautiful locations.
The organization, itinerary of the tour were excellent.
Being a beginner in photography, I received professional advice and help as regards approach to making pictures, photography techniques from Oleg and his colleague Robert always when needed, and they were right to the point.
I enjoyed the beauty of Slovenian nature in its most impressive period of ‘golden’ autumn in October, and learnt many useful photo hints.
Thank you very much!
