What our clients say


On the Pantanal trip in July 2023, the biodiversity impressed me the most. The jaguars were great, lying in wait for caimans along the rivers and swimming across the river in front of us. Beautiful animals! But also impressive were the giant otters, which even put a jaguar to flight. We also encountered a swimming tapir. The many bird species - kingfishers, herons, giant storks, hawks, cormorants, etc. - always offered great motifs. - offered great motifs again and again. We were competently accompanied by Thomas and Marcos, who shared a lot of his knowledge about the animals with us. Everything was well organised. A rewarding trip!

Photo Tour Pantanal, July 2023


We had to wait a long time before we could finally travel to Patagonia. But it was worth it in every respect. What an incredible 10 days we experienced in this unique landscape! Perfectly guided by Thomas Brühlmann, Cristina Harboe and the other local guides, we were able to let off steam photographically. But the highlight was definitely the 3 days of puma tracking. Here we were able to benefit from Rodrigo Moraga's many years of knowledge and photograph the animals at almost arm's length. I would love to go there again right away!

Amazing experience!! Thank you Amazing Views and Daisy G Gilardini for a top line photography experience. Daisy’s experience and helpfulness, her passion for a great photography experience made this trip so special. She is as genuine and nice as I hoped her to be and her professionalism is outstanding!

Polar Bear Safari, Churchill October 2022


Our Churchill polar bear experience was incredible. Our photo guide taught us all so much and was able to help us all make sure to get some amazing photographs. I loved this trip so much that I am thinking about going back next year. Worth every penny!

Polar Bear Safari, Churchill October 2022


New York - I would never have thought that I would be so fascinated to discover a new kind of photography in the midst of a crowd of people. To document a city in black and white under professional guidance is simply just so much fun!

Street Photography New York, November 2019


Amazing Views is really worth of its name on this fantastic journey into the beauty and wilderness of Alaska! Starting with a variety of animals that we could observe, great landscapes and unique went from one highlight to the next and when you thought: "More is not possible", the next highlight of the trip already came. Playing brown bear teenagers, who came a little bit closer, bald eagles in flight and very photogenic in the treetop, otters, seals, dolphins, whales, moose, foxes, caribous, black bears, beavers, puffins and much more we were allowed to admire and photograph in the animal kingdom. Among the landscapes, there were unique (early) morning moods, glaciers and lakes, foggy valleys and as a special gift, Mount Denali with all its splendour. And all this on land, on water and from the air. A memorable experience and a very special trip, with great people and the perfect organization and support by Thomas and Jeff! With Amazing Views anytime again. Thanks to the whole team!

Alaska Into the Wild, August 2019

Erwin & Pia

Alaska had been in the back of my mind for many years because of its vast photographic possibilities. Finally it worked out and we experienced such a unforgettable journey of superlatives. During our various trips to USA and also Canada we were constantly accompanied by warning signs for moss crossing, but never got to see one. Jeff and Thomas, especially Pia, were finally able to fulfil our wish and we experienced a wonderful morning in a moose area near Anchorage and were able to take pictures of the animals at close range. An unforgettable experience that we will never forget. To go into all the other highlights would go beyond the scope here. We are grateful that we were able to experience all this at our age.

The Alaska Into the wild photo tour was fantastic. Bears, sea otters, moose, caribous and much more could be photographed at close range. The trip was not limited to wildlife and landscape photography was not neglected. Special thanks to Jeff Schultz. His knowledge, experience and helpfulness made the trip an unforgettable experience. I can only recommend this photo tour!

Into the Wild, August 2019


WOW! It was sensory overload and I'm still processing everything that I saw and experienced. I just finished doing a first look at my photos (over 12,000) and am re-living the exceptional tour. Accommodations, food, leadership and the weather (most of the time) were the best possible. So many bears and so close. Seeing all of Denali for several days was a minor miracle. Flying up to it is beyond words. How can I describe the thrill of the helicopter ride to the glaciers, the boat trip on Prince William Sound with all the wildlife we saw and its gorgeous scenery, Lake Clark with its many bears and their crazy behavior, Denali Camp with its pristine beauty, gourmet food, much wildlife and the crazy road getting there? And the group I was with became instant friends of mine who I already miss. It was a trip I'll remember the rest of my life. Thank you, Amazing Views!

Alaska Into the Wild, August 2019


Alaska - Into the wild was an unforgettable journey for me, even though I don't photograph at all. Highlights after highlights, breath-taking landscapes alternated with incredible animal encounters. We saw bears, moose, sea otters, porpoises, humpback whales....., some of them from close range. In addition, the organisation both before and on site was excellent, the accommodations were great and with Jeff Schultz we had a photographer at our side who was not only familiar with the area and always friendly and helpful, but also made many experiences possible for us through his knowledge and experience. Although I was a bit sceptical in advance if this trip is really recommendable for non-photographers, I did not regret my participation in the trip for a minute and I firmly believe that this was not my last trip with Amazing Views.

Alaska Into the Wild, August 2019


I am still completely blown away that I had a chance to experience this breath-taking, wild beauty of nature. And watching the King of the Arctic in his natural environment is the crowning glory. This trip was rounded off by perfect organisation and execution, first class food, super nice crew and really great tips from the experienced nature photographer Daisy Gilardini and Thomas from Amazing Views, who delivered a perfect all-round carefree package for me. Sorry Thomas, if I have to repeat myself again and again: THANK YOU VERY MUCH to you and Jennifer for making such trips possible!!! I would like to be part of this journey once again.

Spitsbergen, April 2019


The polar bear photo safari with Daisy was a once in a lifetime wonder. Seeing a polar bear and her cubs emerge from their den and later begin their long journey to the Bay was more emotional than I expected. This was the best wildlife experience I have ever had.

I learned to appreciate Daisy very much, not only as a photographer, but also as a person. Once in a lifetime experience, got a deep insight into the polar bear family life, got to admire the polar bears and fluffy, cute cubs playing in the snow! Among the many photos there are some really great pictures, which thanks to Daisy. It was a pleasure. Thanks a lot for the great days!

Despite initial doubts about weather conditions (cold / wind) and hand baggage regulations of the US companies, the whole trip proved to be an excellent opportunity to follow & observe a polar bear mother. Thanks to the peace and quiet and support from Daisy who made that possible. The outermost cold protection suits including shoes were great. An impressive experience that will stay vivid for a long time.

The tours are always super organized by Jennifer and Thomas! I especially liked this tour, because you experience the nature of South Africa and Botswana in its unspoiled form. The animals are not on display, you have to look for them / discover them. But you get to see all the animals, up close and personal. Also, the season with occasional thunderstorms and wildflower carpets has its special charm. Absolutely recommended!

Botswana's Best Kept Secret, February 2019

Kristina & Kerstin

Alaska - Into the Wild was very much to our liking, it was a scenically and photographically varied trip. There is something for everyone, whether on land, from the air or on the water. Unbelievable landscapes, a fantastic sunrises and animal encounters (especially the bears) that you won't forget so quickly. Jeff Schultz is a wonderful photo travel companion; warm, calm, patient and always helpful. A really great person and perfect choice.

Alaska Into the Wild, August 2018


I had a dream, and it came true! Svalbard with Jenny and Daisy can hardly be 'topped'. The organisation- incl. consideration of my 'special handicaps' was just great. In addition, the team on board was extremely customer oriented. Thus we experienced indescribable photo events from day to day.

Spitsbergen, June / July 2018

Philip & Barbara

The trip to Spitsbergen with its unspoilt landscape, abundance of animals and the fascinating play of lights was a matter of the heart. We were able to experience a lot on this perfectly organized trip. The accommodation on the ship was perfect and the excursion mode fully met our taste. Among the many photos there are a few great pictures, which are a joy thanks to Jenny and Daisy. Many thanks for the great days Philipp & Barbara.

Svalbard, June / July 2018


Svalbard, Arctic, polar bears, glaciers, walruses, birds, and pure nature. This trip is unforgettable, but not only because of the nature, the animal and bird life and the silence and tranquillity of this area, but also because of the amazing view and One Ocean. Everything just fits: the ship, the crew, the staff of One Ocean, who left no question unanswered, were always helpful, cheerful and obliging. Especially THANKS to Jenny Brühlmann and Daisy Gilardini. Not only do they have a profound knowledge of photography and the area, they are also very good at communicating it, and they managed to turn me from a non-photographer to a proud owner of a camera and have total fun taking pictures. I have learned to appreciate both of them very much, not only as photographers and tour guides, but also as people.
