I had booked the overnight photo tour with Justin for my husband’s milestone birthday. It was truly an awesome, memorable experience both for me (the one who booked the tour) and my husband (the one who went on the tour). Justin is very accommodating, flexible and lots of fun - and very knowledgeable of course. The photo tour itself was such a novel experience in Singapore. First, Justin patiently answered ALL my questions regarding the tour details, schedules, payment even when I wasn’t entirely sure of all the details of the surprise I had planned with my husband. I had booked him six months in advance and he kept in touch, keeping me informed of potential changes in the weather and other elements that would impact the tour. He was also very flexible regarding the constraints I had on scheduling dates and times. He also guided me on navigating the site! Really helpful for non-techies like me! Closer to the date, he reminded me of the surprise and coordinated with me regarding the activities and what he could do to help. My husband was really loved the surprise that Justin helped plan - and this was not yet the tour! For the tour itself, the all I know is that it was awesome (feedback from my husband) and he has learned a lot during the session (which is saying a lot since my husband has been taking photos for 10 years). The session itself and the techniques he has learned from Justin has re-ignited his interest in photography as he has realized that there is more cool stuff he can learn. And lastly, I really appreciated the follow-through that Justin has done sending through photos and videos of the surprise. It was a great experience overall. He has made the birthday celebration extra special.
