Photography Tours Nepal - About Photo Tour Experts
At Photo Tour Experts our passion is photography, epic scenes and life changing locations. We design photography holiday tour itineraries that will give you the opportunity to experience the life, culture and the spirituality of the place while capturing these moments for life. Our itineraries run fairly slowly compared to standard itineraries with plenty of sunrise, sunset and night photography locations. We want you to go home from your trip excited to experience more and to inspire your friends with your photos.
Our photography holidays don’t visit dozens of locations in one day, we generally stick to one or 2 quality locations with morning and afternoon the main focus and travel or relaxation during the day. We also like to include many “off the beaten path” locations where standard tours don’t often go but are rich in great photo opportunities.
You don’t need to be a photographer to enjoy our tours, we find them to be well suited to older travellers (who like to walk instead of run), those interested in spending more time to absorb locations or wildlife and flora enthusiasts.
We specifically arrange photography tours to Nepal and to the surrounding region. You can choose from one of our itineraries and arrange a fixed departure for your group for which we will provide a local guide and detailed itinerary for you to follow. If you would like to guide your own group of friends then we may even give you the land cost of your trip for free provided you meet our minimum number requirement (and depending on the trip).
We have Andrea regularly guiding trips in the region so you can book onto one of our fixed departures guided by Andrea or request for her to guide your group (minimum numbers will apply for this to be included in our advertised price). On these tours we always have a local guide on hand as well.
