…………….¬†¬† . ……..My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Maja’s photography tour and learnt much from her in a few short hours. Aside from …………………………….being exceedingly engaging and knowledgeable, Maja’s¬†constructive critiques and¬†willingness to share her own perspectives thru our …………………………….cameras’ lenses were invaluable. Her enthusiasm, encouragement, and support made this one of the highlights of our trip!

…………….¬†¬† . ……..‘Maja exceeded my expectations in taking me to one fabulous photo opportunity to the next during my one day cruise ship stop ……………………………. over in Akaroa.¬†I decided to pass on driving to Christchurch so we could just focus on all the beauty in and around Akaroa. Plus …………………………….she will give you some good photography tips.’

…………………¬†¬†¬† ….Dain Blair, Los Angeles, USA

 

…………….¬†¬† . ……..‘Thank you for a wonderful experience! The booking process with Maja was easy and any ongoing communication was excellent. ……………………………. Having emigrated from Germany, Maja is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of her new home country. …………………………….Amazing views with some great chances to take some awesome photos under Maja‚Äôs excellent guidance, which is second to none. …………………………….We had an amazing day and can‚Äôt find enough superlatives to describe how awesome Maja is. You are always a little skeptical …………………………….when booking a private tour away from the cruise ship in a foreign country but we can not recommend Maja and her photography …………………………….tour of Akaroa and Christchurch enough. We had an awesome experience, saw many sites that would not have been possible …………………………….on a larger group tour and would recommend Maja to anyone who relishes the more private, personal touch to their tour …………………………….requirements. Her Land Rover Discovery is very nice, clean and well maintained, her driving excellent and we felt safe in her …………………………….hands for our day in Akaroa & Christchurch.’
