Photo Tours

*** New *** A La Carte Photo Tours – Are you just in town for a few hours and looking for something to do? We can help! We can pick you up at the train station or your lodging and spend anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day with you. We can tailor your experience like a mini photography workshop or just bring you to great areas to shoot photos. These tours are subject to availability. We take cash or credit cards (no checks). A La Carte Photo Tours can only be booked by calling (978) 309-5554 please allow two hours lead time.

Regular tours run May thru October, Tuesday thru Saturday. Off-Season (Nov. thru April) tours can be made by special arrangement. 

Our photo tours take in many special places in Gloucester and Rockport and include picking you up and dropping you off from your Gloucester or Rockport accommodations. If you are coming in by train we will meet you at the station in Gloucester. Some of the areas we discover are the Gloucester waterfront, East Gloucester, Rocky Neck, Atlantic Rd., Good Harbor Beach, Eastern Point, Rockport’s eastern shore, views of Thacher’s Island, Rockport headlands, downtown Rockport, Granite Pier, Pigeon Cove, Halibut Pt State Park, Folly Cove, Lanes Cove, Plum Cove, Bay View, and Annisquam.

We have a three person maximum for our tours. Our transportation is a Ford Fusion Hybrid that takes four people comfortably which includes your tour guide. We are not setup to accommodate families at this point unless it is a family of three and the child is over the age of 10.

Special arrangements can be made for larger groups up to six people with at least two weeks notice depending on group size and scheduling. There will be a cost adjustment for tours larger than three people.
