Led by a professional photogrpaher. His comments were directed toward cell-phone camera users, but he and I had useful conversations as well. He took us to seome excellent areas, especially the reversing falls. As an added benefit, we got a good view of vbarious parts of the city as we moved from site to site. We also visited a fishing dock area and town. Overall an excellent trip and one worth taking. Read Less

There was fog so that took away a little bit from the experience however really can't blame Cunard or the tour people for that. It is a relatively short tour which we wanted so we could walk around Saint John. Unfortunately Saint John itself is just not that exciting. The tour was pretty nice. There were 23 passengers on the tour. The tour guide was a knowledgeable and friendly photographer. The tour is targeted to people who like to take photographs and want to improve their photography. Many of the passengers had SLRs. While I think the tour guide was excellent the stops were nice from a photography point of view but were not great. I suspect that there are not that many spectacular sites within a reasonable drive of the port. The port is right at Saint John, no shuttle required. Read Less

He did a fantastic job of explaining things and answered any questions we may have had. We did the morning tour. Got to be on the ocean floor at low tide. What a great experience. Can't say enough.

Photography tour was very good. LePreau Falls and Irving Nature Park were both beautiful, and our guide was quite good. Got some nice pictures on the tour and learned few photography tips that I hope to use more in the future.

Best excursion we have taken - Very small group - 21 people. We booked the morning Coastal Photography tour and went to the Bay of Fundy twice so we could see the tides reverse. We also went off the beaten track to lovely Lepreau Falls, to a beach area with a marsh you could view during low tide, and to an area where lobster boats were unloading their traps. The best part, the guide was very entertaining and gave us some great photography tips. Highly recommend this excursion. Read Less

Saint John again had the tourist thing with a big tent set up with local and tourist type things for sale. I did a photography tour with the cruise. It was very nice, but very rushed with only 20 mins at each stop. Could of started earlier and given people 30 mins at each stop would of been better in my opinion. But good to see quite a bit of the place and learn about it thanks to the tour guide Cindi Lee Campbell. Read Less

This was quite good. Our guide was a professional photographer; at each stop he gave technical advice on how to make the best of the available light (it was a foggy day), plus general photography tips; in between stops he gave us more general photography tips, along with stories about how he had learned some of those lessons the hard way -- very entertaining, I'd definitely recommend this tour for any amateur photographer, plus it goes to very picturesque places even if you're not into photography.

Small group size of 20 was a big plus for this excursion. Matt, the tour guide, is a professional photographer who shared his knowledge of photo composition (rule of thirds, leading lines, etc.) and camera settings (aperture, speed), while showing examples from his own work. I had taken a photography class, so I knew this information already, but it was very informative for my cousin and most of the other people on the trip. He took us to some great spots for shooting photos - I only wish there would have been more places to stop with more time overall. This is an excellent excursion if you love to take photos and wish to get away from the crowds of other tourists. Read Less
