What our clients say
The photo tour "Wild Scotland" has the right name. We experienced a week with weather typical for this region. Overcast skies, sunshine in between, dense fog in the mountains and short heavy rain showers with strong winds. It was a good opportunity to test out the waterproof and windproof clothing. The tour was well organised and everything worked well. Ralf led the tour prudently with a lot of humour, constantly coordinating with Nick, the local photographer, in choosing the next photo stop. They reacted flexibly to the changing weather. Both supported the participants very well in photo-technical questions and Nick, thanks to his very good local knowledge, was able to draw our attention to small details in the composition of the picture. The photo tour is recommended for photographers who want to experience the wild nature of Scotland and especially the beautiful Isle of Skye.
I can only recommend photo tours with Amazing Views. Everything is always perfectly organised, they react spontaneously to weather, changing conditions and wishes, the tour guides are always top-notch, and you don't just feel like a customer but part of a big family with the same interests.
The trip was excellently prepared and organized from the beginning to the very last detail. Everything worked out perfectly. The travel documentation was very informative and comprehensive. Our companions Jenny and Nick were excellent hosts, always very attentive, helpful and in a good mood. The atmosphere within the group was great, also thanks to our companions. The trip will remain in my best memories.
It was my first trip to Scotland, but definitely not the last! As a part-time press & event photographer, my concern with photo tours is not so much to be supported by the photographers, but to be in the right place at the right time. The group also significantly increases the motivation for getting up early. The local photographers Nick (Wild Scotland) and Marcus (Outer Hebrides) knows their region, they know exactly which photo spots work best in which weather and they also share their knowledge. The support by Jenny and one of the two local photo guides was sensational, communicative and always trying to bring out the best for the participants. My expectations were exceeded by far, even as an event photographer I was able to learn a lot in landscape photography thanks to the support. Thank you very much for these two photo tours in breath-taking Scotland. I will be gladly back with Amazing Views.
The photo tour was perfectly organized right from the beginning, already the detailed information before the start of the tour indicated for an excellent organization. The daily planning, adapted to weather conditions and the interests of us photographers left nothing to be desired and the beauty of the landscapes contributed the rest. We always had the feeling that Jennifer and Nick wanted to bring out the best for the participants and we were always reminded to ask questions, get information and express wishes. Personally, I always felt very comfortable and in good hands, had fun taking pictures and certainly learned a lot. The "camp frenzy" also didn't come up because of the harmonious group - my conclusion: I'm any time happy to travel again with Amazing Views!
This fantastic photo week in the Scottish Highlands and on the Isle of Skye will remain in my positive memories for a long time. I rarely get so much good photo material together in one week. The support by Jenny and Nick was very pleasant and professional. They led us to unique photo spots and passed on their photo knowledge in a pleasant way. I was able to profit a lot and refine my photo technique. I was completely satisfied and would go on a photo tour with Amazing Views again anytime.
In May I was in Scotland for the first time ever on an organized photo tour. Not only did I enjoy the breath-taking landscapes, but also the trip and its organisation was just perfect for me and met or exceeded all expectations. It is unbelievable with what commitment and passion the two photographers/guides Jennifer & Nick are working and putting their shoulders to the wheel. The planning is highly professional and everything is adjusted to the right light and weather conditions. If the weather did not play along, we reorganized and looked for other spots. It was an incredibly great and learning week together with other photo enthusiasts and we had a lot of fun.
This is my first time in Scotland, and I am simply thrilled. The tour was top organized by Jenny and very professionally guided by Nick Hanson. We did not lack for anything. Very suitably selected hotels with very good Scottish cuisine including local specialities such as haggis. Partly off the beaten track we went to the most beautiful photo motives of Isle of Sky and the Highlands. Often, we took pictures at places we would never have found without the local guide. It is not easy to find spots on Skye that are always adapted to the weather, but Jenny and Nick mastered that. Thanks again and good light wherever you take pictures.
With Jenny, Harry and Nick we were allowed to get to know a part of Scotland. I can now understand your enthusiasm for this wild country. Thank you so much for letting me come along. As a beginner I felt well looked after among all the cracks, and not at all as an outsider. I got a different eye for the landscape around me and I am very grateful for that. My photo equipment is always ready.
Wild Scotland fully complied with the tender! With sunshine and blue "disturbances", with rainbows and hailstorms we were able to capture the landscape photographically. What more could the photographer's heart desire... Jenny and Nick were always helpful and competent at our side. Gladly anytime again!
Seldom has a landscape impressed me as much as the one on Skye. The peace and simplicity of the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. The weather was mostly good and so I took great pictures with beautiful light moods. Now I can reminisce at home while editing the pictures. Jenny and Nick were great tour guides/photographers and always brought us to the photo spots at the right time of day (sometimes even in the middle of the night). With their patient and humorous manner, they always gave us valuable tips. Thanks for the great organization and unforgettable days. See you next time...
The trip was great! The organization and execution, as well as the support was super. We visited very nice photo spots, as described in the travel description. Also, we were lucky with the weather. Except for a little rain it was nice and warm. I also think it's great that we were accompanied by guides who know the region very well. This was my first trip with Amazing Views and my expectations were completely fulfilled.
