We know this is common sense, but we have to say it anyway – please keep in mind that our Photoguides include some of the coolest photo-opps in a city, some of which may be at a hotel, business, restaurant or even near a private home. If that’s the case then you may need to book a hotel room, order something at a restaurant or even arrange a shoot in advance to be able to take photos in that location. If it’s near a private home please be respectful and treat the situation like you would want to be treated if your house was an Instagrammer’s dream.

We also sometimes include locations that are museums or art installations, which keep in mind can change at their discretion – but usually they’ll replace it with something along the same vibe so you’ll still get the shot. Like any good traveler, it’s always a good idea to double check if a location, monument, or museum is open before heading there. One time we traveled to Fez, Morocco to see the ancient leather tanneries only to find out it was closed…for the first time in close to 1000 years LOL! So trust us, if you don’t want to take the risk just double check before making the trek.  We hope you enjoy using our Photoguides and if you love them as much as we do, please leave a comment at the end to let us know! Safe travels xx
