    Thanks so much for your kind review - that's great to hear you enjoyed the tour so much and got a lot out of Brett's teaching. And yes the tour is all about the complete experience rather than taking one shot of the train passing by! Wishing you all the best with your photography and I'm sure we'll see you again next time!

    Delighted to hear you guys enjoyed our new On the Tracks tour with William. It's pretty amazing what you can capture with smartphones nowadays, but having a photography expert like Will with you makes all the difference. Great that you both got a lot out of the experience and learned so much. Thank you for the review and hope to see you guys again soon!
